So, the police only derive their authority and “power” from us, the people. They cannot do anything that you and I could do, since we grant them that authority. That being said, if you or I were to walk up to someone in a public space and we put our hands all over them we would be charged with assault. But not the police. I believe that any cop 30 years of age or younger has been indoctrinated and brainwashed by the state to treat EVERYONE as potential threats and terrorists. God help us.
Ya’ll see the hero pull the gun on the kids? These guys are a waste of skin.
Must have missed that bit. These guys are pathetic.
Nasty ass cop yelling at the driver to get back in the car? WTF?! So our role is to play the part of a passive barnyard animal to these rabid dogs? Does it warrant this sort of menacing behavior?
Apparently, it does.
Things have really changed. Am I the only one who remembers that as recently as the mid-late ’80s one could get out of one’s vehicle and argue with the cop after he pulled you over for something – and not face a drawn gun/Tazer and not expect a summary beating?
Today, they demand immediate quiescence and submission.
“Officer safety,” you see.
