Bad Cop, Worse Cop

Bad Cop, Worse Cop

Nobody says it like Larken Rose! Read it and weep America. The forefathers of this nation resisted with force against less infringements on their rights than we routinely acquiesce to EVERYDAY somewhere in this socialist, magoritarian, authoritarian, FALSE republic, fascist legislative democracy. When will we learn that the only way these anal orifice porcines respond lawfully, constitutionally and morally is to the possibility of an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth?

"How we burned in the prison camps later thinking: What would things have been like if every police operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive? If during periods of mass arrests people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers or whatever was at hand? The organs would very quickly have suffered a shortage of officers and, notwithstanding all of Stalin's thirst, the cursed machine would have ground to a halt." ---Alexander Solzhenitsyn - The Gulag Archipelago

Bad Cop, Worse Cop
These days, many news sites have a place after each story where the 
rabble can throw in their own comments. And every time there's a
story about police abuse, a debate arises about how many cops are
bad apples, and how many are good guys. You'll see everything from
"They're all fascist pigs!" to "The vast majority of cops are
honest and do things by the book." Who is right? What ARE the
percentages of good versus bad? Good question. Another good
question is, Does the system even WANT the cops to be honest and by-
the-book? Consider the following story: Fascist pig beats up lady,
falsely accuses her of a crime, but eventually is exposed as a
lying, sadistic thug. Here are the details:

Note in the story how this was NOT the first indication that the
guy is a power-happy fascist. So, does the system try to keep such
people out, or does it just try to keep them from getting CAUGHT
being fascist pigs? I would suggest the latter.

(Keep in mind, in the settlement for that case, "government" paid
NOTHING. "Government" has nothing to give. It stole money from
OTHER people, and gave it to the victim of the fascist thuggery.
I'm not saying she didn't deserve it; I'm saying the ones who PAID
it--you and me--weren't the ones who did her harm. I would have
loved to see the fascist himself be forced to sell everything he
has and give her the proceeds--and then get flung in a cage.)

In story after story, cops commit lawless thuggery, LIE about it,
and then find out that it was caught on tape. Then they "cooperate"-
- -once they know they're sunk--and get credit for doing so. The
system defends and protects its thugs, until their evil is too
obvious for the public to miss. Then, and only then, will the
system hang an individual thug or two out to dry, as if they are
the only problem.

The potential harm that can be caused by "authority" dwarfs what
the average crook can do. Imagine if that lady had been put in a
cage for 15 YEARS, based on the fascist's bald-faced lie. (I only
did a year based on fascist lies myself.) And since, as recent
stories have shown, cops seem perfectly willing to lie to protect
their fellow gang members, it often makes resisting police abuse
rather hazardous.

So do cops and their bosses actually object to police brutality and
abuse? As far as I can tell, they object to being CAUGHT, and
that's about it. They consistently lie, insult, threaten, and
assault, until they're caught on tape. Then, and ONLY then, do they
show "remorse," which shows only that they're sorry they got
CAUGHT. While the public gets upset when they see example of the
"bad apples" on the police force, I see little or no evidence that
those who run the system mind it at all... except when they get
caught. Yeah, they publicly act surprised and offended at the
"abuse," but only after all hope of cover-up, excuses and lies is

What would we see if even 50% of cops actually gave a damn about
individual liberty, constitutional rights, truth and justice? We'd
see cops getting fired every other day. When FIVE Tennessee "law
enforcers" (power-happy thugs) get caught TORTURING a guy to get
his "consent" to search his home, that means that there are a lot
more "bad apples" than government would have us believe. If there
was a "good cop" on the scene, what would he have done? Well, if he
was ACTUALLY good, he would at the very least have exposed the
abuse after the fact, and if he had a spine, he would have done
whatever it took to STOP the other cops from being sadistic thugs.

So how many cops would do that? Why have I NEVER heard of that
happening? Like those in the military, partly because of training
and partly because of circumstance, "government" enforcers always
evolve into a gang which cares far more about defending the gang
than it does about doing the right thing. (The mass murder down in
Waco is a particularly heinous example of this.)

Of the recent wave of examples of police abuse that have come out,
how many were exposed by fellow cops? I know of none. Is it because
they never NOTICE their fellow officers abusing people? Of course
not. Is there any cop anywhere who has never at least once seen
other cops illegally abusing people? I doubt it. So where are the
"good cops" exposing that kind of thing--I mean BEFORE someone else
catches them? Can you think of a single case of that? I can't. Why
not? They've ALL seen the abuse, and NONE of them expose it. Why is

It's because if, as a cop, you don't at least look the other way,
if not participate yourself in the thuggery, your chances of
remaining a cop are slim to none. No street gang would allow its
members to say bad things about it, and neither would the street
gang which calls itself "the police." The fact that there ARE
"Internal Affairs" units at all, which are usually resented by all
the other cops, makes it pretty obvious that most cops are NOT
going to "tell" on each other, no matter what they do. They have
sworn to "protect and serve" their gang, and that's exactly what
they do. If there are only a few "bad apples," and if most cops are
honest and good--if ANY cops are honest and good, in fact--why
aren't THEY the ones exposing police misconduct? They have a front
row seat to all of it, yet their lips remain sealed.
