What happens when we do? Watch.
Some states are worse than others for police and judicial tyranny. New Hampshire courts are barbecue pits, especially in Keene, New Hampshire. Vermont is obviously a rigged system. But I am left alone in these states. In the State of Connecticut cops will threaten your life if you are talking to elected officials about correcting the system.
Rhode Island cops want to arrest you for stupid crap like sleeping in public ... like at a public beach. A reason I never wanted to live in Rhode Island.
Hawaiian State and/or local Police try to sell weed out of the trunks of their cars and then want to bust their competition ...
Pennsylvania some of the worst racist White cops I have ever seen. I was told by a downtown Miami Florida police officer that I was the wrong color to hang out, I'm White. I traveled for months in Europe and the former USSR and had no negative interactions with police, something I can't seem to go a couple of days being left alone in the US pursuing legal activities, trying to enjoy liberty, in the pursuit of happiness.
I got pulled over for being a Yankee out driving at 5 AM in Mississippi. His tune quickly turned to alarm when he learned I was an insurance adjuster in the aftermath of Katrina and I had the power to turn him in or black list him if he had any sort of insurance claim.
New York City cops act like they would like to kill you if they can get you alone, or maybe will just shoot you for fun right in the street.
Not all cops are bad. The good ones seems to be the ones the bad cops target first. There seem to be more bad cops, or cops that just look the other way, than there are really good cops. We need to let the cops out there know that we have their back when they are acting for the public good, and that we will be on their backs when they are not.
The breakdown of this relationship is happening.
Since they always treated me well I’ll continue to treat them well.
Cops need the cooperation of the communities they police. The communities need cops.
The breakdown of this relationship is happening.
Lots of posters here seem to be working hard for this breadown.
Lots of posters here are realizing just how selectively "the law" is applied, and just how lawless government agents have become.
It’s called the Nazification of America.
It easy work.
The Police institutions need to change expectations. The public relations disaster that is Law Enforcement today was created by Law Enforcement training standards and behavioral expectations.
Law Enforcement needs to fix itself. They have plenty of conventions and communication in that world to do it too. If they were so inclined.
I was concerned that the video might be people shooting police dogs... which I’m sure the police would charge as murdering an officer.
And here I’ve gone close onto 40 years without a significantly negative interaction with the police.
I used to think like you. Until my house was burglarized. Most everyone has a story like that.
Then as the veil of darkness that shrouded the Police from scrutiny was lifted by technology the sanitation of sunlight has not been kind to Law Enforcement.
“To protect (our pensions) and to serve (our unions).”
Some people can still say that. Should you wait for it to happen to you or yours before you speak up?
They came for the scientists and I was silent because I was not a scientist.
They came for the journalists and I was silent because I was not a journalist.
65 years here!
We do need some law enforcement but law enforcement with a lot of common sense. We do NOT need millions of frigging cops. What we need is for everyone to carry a firearm. Guns make for a politer society. When only criminal thugs and jack booted thugs with badges carry guns nobody has any respect for anyone else.
We need the laws we already have on the books to be enforced, lawyering made illegal with and again... Common sense.
Until our society learns to cherish life and begin to care about one another the way we used to there is no hope. Corrupt cops, more laws, ambulance chasers, unarmed citizens and rudeness will continue to be in large part the reason our nation completely collapses.
I was concerned that the video might be people shooting police dogs... which Im sure the police would charge as murdering an officer.
Unfortunately there were no police dogs present for the citizens to shoot.
The retaliatory instruments of the politicians who control their pay and retirement.
If you get pulled over, quickly find a safe spot to stop, turn your dome light on, and put both your hands on the steering wheel. Be very polite. You should be fine, I have done a total 180 on my attitude towards police.
You mean we’re going to wear guns and radios and patrol their homes to keep them and their families safe? Come running when they’re in trouble and they call us? Maybe we can track the crime in their neighborhoods by computer to give them a safer community? No?
