Here’s a particularly awful story and video out of Glendale, AZ – with implications that are national.
Armed government workers followed a car into a parking lot – over an alleged turn signal violation – and almost immediately escalate the traffic stop into a violent “takedown” that ends with the front seat passenger being Tasered 11 times.
He “don’t got no ID,” says the AGW. “Shut up. Shut up. You’re fine.”
The passenger – who was not driving – didn’t make the alleged illegal U turn and so objected to the AGW’s demand for his ID. Many people do not realize – understandably – that when a vehicle is stopped by AGWs because the driver allegedly committed a traffic violation, the law in some states empowers AGWs to demand ID from the passengers as well.
This is another one of those laws designed to get around our ex-protections – articulated in plain English by the Fourth and Fifth Amendments, parsed into the opposite of their plain meaning by the government’s lawyers, who represent its interests rather than ours – i.e., the Supreme Court.
The vehicle’s passengers’ rights are negated because of something the driver allegedly did. It seems obnoxious because it is – and many people are incredulous when confronted with demands for their ID when they themselves violated no traffic or other law – and hence, have given AGWs no probable cause to search or interrogate them.
Well, the man expressed incredulity – and questioned the AGW’s demands.
This affronted the Authority of the AGWs, which is the most dangerous “offense” one can commit in the United States these days.
They commenced to show the man how to respect their Authority:
One AGW almost immediately presses an Agonizer – that is to say, a Tazer – directly on the man’s right shoulder and begins barking orders. The man “tenses up” – as most people would probably do when an armed government thug appears almost out of the blue and begins barking orders and making violent threats.
The Tazering commences.
Not once, not twice. Not even thrice. Not even three times thrice. They hit him 11 times with the Agonizer. Some will recognize the Star Trek reference; it is from the classic series episode, Mirror Mirror – in which the transporter sends Kirk to an alternate universe where the Federation is evil and the crew of the Enterprise is kept in line via the threat of a device called an Agonizer – which looks remarkably like a Tazer and does exactly what a an actual Taser does do.
This is 2019 – and reality.
Roadside torture for noncompliance. Which ought not to be surprising given the legalization of torture – literally – by the federal government itself. The legacy of The Chimp, now safely retired to paint John Wayne Gacy-like watercolors – and official policy. If it is okay to torture “evildoers,” it is okay to torture anyone the government says is “evil” – which amounts to anyone who affronts its Authority, which is – ipso facto – the very essence of “evil.”
Oil poured in the creek tends to run downstream.
“It’s just a goddamn piece of paper,” after all.
But wait, it gets better.
The AGWs pull the man’s pants down and deliberately Taser him in his testicles – while the man’s kid, who is riding in the back of the car watches.
Remember: The man is writhing in agony – on the ground, utterly helpless. And they pull his pants down and attack his genitals, just for the sick pleasure they got from doing it.
And the AGW who did it has not been arrested. Much less fired. His compatriots didn’t intervene to stop this attack 0 which was worthy of Ralph Fiennes’ sadistic character Amon Goeth in Schindler’s List.
The inhumanity beggars belief – and it was done under color of law.
They are “investigating” the incident “internally.
What does one say? Words fail. It takes one’s breath away.
What the Hell is happening to this country?
There is no “other side” to this story. The entire event from beginning to end is captured on video. No question as to the facts. The man balked at handing over his ID. Nothing more. The man – half the size of the bald thug who tortured him – was never any sort of “threat” to the “safety” of the AGWs, who were several to his one as well.
No one even attempted to flee.
There is nothing that can be adduced to justify what happened – other than a costumed, government-Rottweiler’s determination to inflict pain as the price of not properly submitting to him.
This “man” is at this very moment armed and prowling the streets of Glendale, AZ. People are advised to remain indoors.
And not just the people of AZ, either.
This horror is far from isolated. It is becoming routine – because abuse has been normalized.
It didn’t happen all at once, because it never does. It takes time.
To get people used to it. To acclimate them to violations of their persons and effects by the state’s goons.
This is why random “checkpoints” are far from innocuous – and why the Gate Rape is so goddamn dangerous. One thing begets another thing.
And here we are.
