Cops: Public Servants or Fascist Pigs? (Part 1)

Larken Rose once again expresses the sentiments that many of us have felt for a long time. PoLice of ANY jurisdiction have become the defacto enforcement arm of a fascist poLice state governmental system. They are seldom held accountable for their actions. When they are held accountable it is NOT commensurate with the CRIME that they have have perpetrated on the individual specifically and the public generally at large. See New Professionalism Roundup for the "slaps on the wrists" that the "Fascist Pigs" receive.
This will not stop until they are held personally accountable for their abuse by an extra lawful authority, in the Talion Law form of an Umpire of Justice. Those who are willing to take up the burden of being justices of Talion Law would be true heroes of the people.

It was not many years ago when I considered myself a supporter of "law enforcement." (I made donations, had the F.O.P. and Sheriff's department stickers and everything.) Cops were, I believed, the good guys, protecting the innocent and imposing justice upon evildoers. Oh sure, I knew there was corruption here and there, and scattered examples of police abuse--a few "bad apples" in the ranks- - -but all in all, I thought the cops were the good guys.

Now I'm really darn embarrassed that I ever thought that.

This will be the first in a series of messages where we examine the question, are the American "law enforcers" of today noble public servants, or despicable fascist pigs?

First, we must define our terms. For example, someone having a short temper, or exercising bad judgment, even repeatedly, is not necessarily a fascist pig. No, a cop's level of "fascismo," if you will, must be measured by something other than just being stupid or even malicious. To truly be a fascist, a cop must demonstrate that he has the fascist mindset. So let's define what that is.

A NON-fascist cop, when he looks out at the world, would see lots of good people, whom he would want to protect, and would never want to harm, intimidate, or even inconvenience unnecessarily. His goal would be to find the nasty people in the world, and see to it that they are prevented from harming any of the decent people.

A FASCIST cop, on the other hand, would view everyone as his inferior, to be controlled, interrogated, or even abused at will. He sees himself, a representative of "authority," as having the right to forcibly impose his will on anyone he wants, whenever he wants, for any reason (or no reason) and the right to use outright violence against any who do not obey his every whim.

So, in this message and the ones to follow, we will examine examples of police conduct in this country, and rate the level of "fascismo" demonstrated by American "law enforcement." What we won't bother looking at are things like a car chase which ends with a cop with too much adrenaline in his blood, or a cop shooting someone with somewhat questionable justification. No, we are looking for ATTITUDE. The goal is to determine if American cops today think like defenders of justice, or like fascist pigs.

As you may know, the feds now do internal "checkpoints," anywhere they want within a hundred miles of the border. If you haven't yet heard of this Orwellian absurdity, here are the basics:

(Yes, I know the ACLU is very selective about which rights it cares about. It fights hard to defend the First Amendment, while fighting hard to VIOLATE the Second Amendment. But their site gives a good summary of the "Constitution free zones.")

With the "checkpoint" information in mind, here is the specific incident we're considering this time, with our "fascistometers" at the ready:

(See Baptist Pastor Beaten Tazed by Border Patrol posted below)

Once you've watched the entire video (it's less than nine minutes), consider a few things:

1) First of all, would anyone who is NOT a fascist pig take part in these warrantless, suspicionless searches at all? Well, no. To think you have the right to stop and interrogate anyone who happens to drive down a road, and the right to search through his stuff, is a classic symptom of being a fascist pig.

2) Would anyone who is NOT a fascist pig view someone's reliance on his Fourth Amendment rights (to not be subjected to an unreasonable and unjustified search) as a REASON to search his car? Put another way, would anyone who is NOT a fascist pig think that someone must be a criminal if he doesn't want to volunteer to let some jackboot rummage through his stuff? No. Again, this is a classic symptom of someone with a fascist pig world view. (Note that in the clip, the guy describes how the fascist pigs at one point admitted that everything the guy went through was because he wouldn't answer a question.)

3) Would anyone who is NOT a fascist pig FAKE "probable cause" in order to get around that pesky Fourth Amendment? No. They had no reason to suspect anything--to stop him at all, or to search him after the stop--and then they LIED about it to make up an excuse to do a search. Classic fascist pig behavior.

4) Would anyone who is NOT a fascist pig smash someone's car windows, taser him, and forcibly extract him from his car, without ANY "probable cause" to think the person had committed a crime? Again, no. (If you're finding these questions difficult to answer, please move to Cuba.)

5) Would anyone who is NOT a fascist pig grind someone's face into broken glass, throw him to the ground, stomp on his head, and otherwise assault him, when the person is unarmed and not resisting, and when there is still no evidence that the guy had committed any crime? No. (The clip doesn't say whether the cops ever knew that the guy is a pastor.)

6) Would anyone who is NOT a fascist pig openly delight in someone else's misery and suffering, while the person is handcuffed and bleeding profusely, mocking and insulting the guy, when there was still NO EVIDENCE that the guy had committed any crime? No. (I could make another item about not letting the guy go to the bathroom, but I'm trying to keep this relatively short.)

7) Here's an important one: Would anyone who is NOT a fascist pig QUIETLY STAND BY while his fellow "officers" did what is described above? NO. If this was a case of one or two "bad apples" in law enforcement, wouldn't some other cop there have tried to stop it, or at least complained about it afterwards? So how often have you ever seen that? Where are the "good cops" speaking out about this stuff?

8) Would anyone who is NOT a fascist pig want to proceed to prosecute the VICTIM of all the abuse I described above, despite the fact that there is STILL no evidence that he committed a crime? No.

Okay, so what's the verdict for this example? Well, if the story above is an accurate reflection of what "law enforcement" in this country is like today, then American cops are indeed fascist pigs, who deserve our utmost contempt and condemnation. (And if it is NOT an accurate reflection of the attitudes and behavior of the police in this country, where are the GOOD cops speaking out against this?)

In closing, I'd like to say the following to Mr. C. Diaz, Mr. B. Griffiths, and Mr. E. Gomez, and any other Nazi swine who participated in the incident described above. If some day you pick the wrong target for your Gestapo crap, and the guy blows your damn fascist pig heads off, the world will be a better place.

Oh, and have a nice day.
