Watching is “Obstructing”

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Here’s video taken by a man of AGWs rummaging through a UHaul for reasons unclear. The man is recording the action from several feet away, while standing on a public sidewalk. An AGW runs up like a vicious Goose, demanding the man stop, accusing him of “obstructing his investigation” – by watching him “investigate.”

How this “obstructs” anything is hard to grok. And besides – if the AGW hasn’t got anything to hide, why is he worried about being filmed? If it’s good for the Goose – why not the Gander?

The AGW doesn’t see it this way, of course. And rather than continue his “investigation,” interrupts it by shining a bright flashlight at the man’s camera rig. Of course, this would be “obstructing” – would be assault – if the man recording did the same thing to the AGW.

Soon, there are six AGWs converged on the “scene” – not “investigating” whatever the issue was with the Uhaul but fixated on the man recording them, who hasn’t shown the expected (but not legally required) deference to their Authoritah.

The man tries to explain the law to these “law enforcers” – who makeup their own laws, then enforce them.

This happens routinely – and it is perhaps for that reason nothing’s done about it. AGWs routinely flout the actual law – and enforce their own made-up laws – without repercussions, so why wouldn’t they continue to do so?

And the people know this – that AGWs are a law unto themselves – and so have become habituated to servile deference to the unstated law – of AGW Authoritah.

Nothing will change for the better until AGWs are held to the same standard everyone else is. When they are arrested, charged – and punished – as we are.

No more – but not less.

  1. i cannot imagine why we allow ex military to be cops, or anyone below the age of 30…

    i made a radar ahead sign yesterday to help the heros slow traffic in those areas they’re concerned about as unsafe. just doing my part for safer roads. helping people slow down. i’m practically a law enforcer…just without the roid rage and need to fleece…

  2. “The whole good cop/bad cop question can be disposed of much more decisively. We need not enumerate what proportion of cops appears to be good or listen to someone’s anecdote about his Uncle Charlie, an allegedly good cop. We need only consider the following: (1) a cop’s job is to enforce the laws, all of them; (2) many of the laws are manifestly unjust, and some are even cruel and wicked; (3) therefore every cop has agreed to act as an enforcer for laws that are manifestly unjust or even cruel and wicked. There are no good cops.” ~Robert Higgs

    • Well-said, EWM!

      I’d only add one thing: AGWs cannot be “good” because theft and coercion are bad. No matter how “fair” and “polite” an AGW tries to be, at the end of the day, he draws his pay from people who are forced to provide it. Anyone who earns his living in that manner is a thief by definition.

      I realize it sounds rough. But I defy anyone to disprove the fact.

  3. Of course, he was obstructing. By standing there and recording video, he would have been able to record them planting evidence, or abusing a suspect. While on video, cops have to adjust their behavior to more closely approximate the law. When there is no video, anything goes, so yes, this is definitely obstruction.

  4. Political power grows out of the barrel of a gun….
    Mao Zedong

    Translated: It’s the government that should have the guns because some animals are more equal than others. The AGW’s are the dogs that are the guardians of the Power elites. Orwell describing the Communist Party but I think it pretty well describes any dictatorship of oligarchs.
