I used to have respect for and be on the side of the police, but now I see them as just another branch of the government, the enemy within the gates. Too many (not all) are just narcissistic sissys and liars with badges.
Police have become ‘law enforcement’ instead of ‘peace officers’. A very big difference in what those two concepts infer as the job of the police. Law Enforcement is uniformed bureaucratic tyranny, hall monitors with guns and the right to shoot you. Remember the people who were hall monitors in high school.
Power hungry little pukes anxious to trot out their little tin badge and invoke the principle’s authority.
