ARE THE POLICE OUR FRIENDS OR ADVERSARIES?
by One Pissed-off Vietnam Vet
(May 30, 2011) — If you were, say, in charge of staffing a police force, what do you think your number one requirement would be? Stop; don’t even think about the answer because never in a million years would you guess correctly. And there’s your answer: “think.”
The number one requirement of a cop today is to follow orders without question, to follow in the footsteps of the World War II German S.S. troops who tossed babies in the air and caught them with their bayonets. You got it: the ranks are filled purposely with low I.Q. goons, who think nothing of following illegal orders, because the very concept of questioning any order is anathema to them.
It used to be that one of the qualifications of being a member of a police force was to be ex-military, but even though the level of acceptance has deteriorated over the years for the military, nowadays they’re still too smart to be policemen. What you and I are left with, then, is that our police force is not as smart as we are, is unable to think out of the box (“I can open-carry. I have a permit” is a little too much for them) and are armed.
But it gets even worse. It all started back when killing a cop was decided to be, somehow, more heinous than killing you or me, if that is at all possible. But wait! They, the politicians, thought it was possible, so they added their group to that of the cop group. Now we have the killing of a cop and politician a worse crime than killing anyone else. But how to separate the two? I mean, dead is dead, right?
Wrong. This is what they did: if you or I are murdered, our murderer may get a few years in prison, but if we were a cop or politician and got murdered, then our killer would be executed. But you say that they used to execute murderers, didn’t they? Yes, they used to, but now they do it only to those who kill cops or politicians, so our killers get to get out of prison and do it again. “Is that why, when a child goes missing, the first thing they do is to find the child molesters who are living in the area, the child molesters whom they used to execute?” You got it.
You see, it even extends to the families of any government employee, which is why murderers, rapists, and child molesters never target the family of judges, for instance.
So there you have it. We’ve been reading about the home invasions and illegal searches by the police force, and a SWAT shooting a guy SEVENTY times where a quiet arrest at a convenience store would have been the smart move. But then this article isn’t about being “smart,“ is it? It’s about making our world less safe by making the taxpayer fund a group of Neanderthals who will turn on us in less than a nanosecond, as Tennessee cops do to out-of-staters traveling through on the interstate.
And whom do we have to thank for this dumbed-down police force? Would you believe Affirmative Action? Eric Holder putting pressure on Dayton, Ohio, to hire minority applicants who fail the standard police entrance exam; AP “New London, CT, justified in denying employment to an applicant who is too smart to be a policeman.” The end result? Bottom-of-the-barrel TSA agents; the whole Homeland Security Department, including their boss, the F.B.I.; especially the F.B.I. (vetted Obama lately?)
Welcome to America, circa 2011.
