Here’s video of an armed government worker meeting out some summary punishment for affronting his Authoritah.
An unarmed man calls the AGW – who is armed – a pussy, for bullying people under color law, using the implied threat of his government issued badge and gun to back up his Tough Hombre strut.
The AGW is infuriated by the temerity of the unarmed man, rushes toward him like an enraged bull – and proceeds to apply electroshock therapy. The man is then Hut! Hut! Hutted! by a whole crew of armed government workers.
These poltroons are dangerous not merely because they’re armed – but because they are poltroons. Fear-ricketed cowards hiding behind their badges and guns.

So we saw the last of the confrontation.
Was the crowd gathering or dispersing or neither?
Was it rubber necking at another event the cops caused or had to deal with?
Cop being called out may have had to save face in front of his buddies.
When told he was under arrest the die was cast and he should have shut the hell up and put his hands up. Should have kept his mouth shut to begin with.
The nail that sticks up gets hammered down and not seeing anything before, this man was used as the nail to intimidate / disperse the crowd. Generally get one and that is all you need. Had the crowed rushed the cops, en mass, and that is the key, things would have been different. Or if 25 big cans of pepper spray had been emptied upwind of the cops….
After a ball game some students got the bright idea they wanted to pull the goal post down – like they do on TV. But word got out and 25 or 30 state troopers surrounded the goal posts. As the drunker pushed forward the cops grabbed one at each end and pulling the goals down did not seem to be that important anymore. Me, I was way back on the 50 and happy to see it stopped as it was detracting from a great victory!
A friend told me of a late ’60 protest where the cops moved in and stated bludgeoning the college students. Happens there were a few ex military and martial arts types watching and several decided to interpose them self between the students and the cops, and the rest followed. One tried to draw his weapon and someone grabbed the cops arm and put it back in the holster for him. The cops were quickly told what would happen to them if they drew and it would be best for them to leave, which they did. The protest ran its course in a half hour or so and all went home.
That was when the cops were more civilian and accountable to the public. Today they are a breed apart and treat us as they treated the folks in Afghanistan, Iraq, etc.
On the flip side, just last night I was waiting on a tow at dusk. A county deputy pulled up to check on me and as he exited his vehicle I stopped him, told him I was packing and had my permit. He never slowed down, kept walking up, and said “don’t worry about it, what’s up with your car?”.
Now in the same county, 5 years ago, a deputy I knew personally and was camping with said 90 % of his peers were skum. Go figure. End qualified immunity most of this abuse will stop.
So, in this case, why was the crowd gathered?
Folks often confuse “free speech” with “freedom to violate property” rights.
I own a property right in the use of the sidewalk and road so a group assembling violates that right if I cannot freely use the public thoroughfare.
Same as shouting “Fire” in the theater. It violates my property right to watch the show unmolested.
If you block the road and an ambulance or fire truck has to get through….
You can say what you want, within the limits of decency and sound level, on the side walk in front of my house but I do not want to have to listen to it inside the house or have you stop and make a 2 hour speech. You are welcome to make your speech, all 2 hours of it, as you walk past the house, and all the others, on your 2 hour walk.
Talk all you want at the bus stop but shut up when you sit down as I have a property right in an undisturbed ride.
If I get the permits I have a property right in the same road and sidewalk to hold my protest event and it should be protected, not canceled when the paid opposition shows up and gets violent, as we saw at the speeches and rallies for Trump. Love him or hate him “Sauce for the goose will soon be sauce for the gander”.
If you want to protest it cannot look like a protest. Do not gather into identifiable groups and talk. No harm in 1000 seemingly unrelated people all showing up at say, the DMV to renew their license, several banks to with draw a dollar, the library, the city council meeting, down town at 4 AM filling the parking garage so you can get great pictures of the sun rise or just walk around all day, riding the bus or public train all day, fill up the mall and seem to be shopping.
The reason cannot be given until all are safely away, and wait a few days.
Plan it mouth to mouth and not on the watched social media.
In the end, more than freedom, they wanted security. They wanted a comfortable life, and they lost it all – security, comfort, and freedom. When the Athenians finally wanted not to give to society but for society to give to them, when the freedom they wished for most was freedom from responsibility, then Athens ceased to be free and was never free again. – Edward Gibbon
Remember, democracy never lasts long. It soon wastes, exhausts, and murders itself. There never was a democracy yet that did not commit suicide. – John Adams (1814)
They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety. – Benjamin Franklin
A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until a majority of voters discover that they can vote themselves largess out of the public treasury. – Alexander Tytler
The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government. –Thomas Jefferson
Only 5 or 6 cops on the man,,, usually they want at least 10 to 1. Brave souls….
ken, no exaggeration. 10 to 1 is fairly average. If there’s any less they go all tactical rifle bright lights apeshit on someone….like the guy going home from work. Seems like there’s been a lot tazed to death this year. You can survive one taze…..so they say. It’s another thing to survive half a dozen.
I’ve been bitten a lot of times by 120VAC, more time than I care to recall with 480VAC 3 phase(once standing in water). 100,000 V DCX 6 is a bit excessive. Once when I got 480VAC 3 phase it had a hell of a load going. Plus it wasn’t 480 V AC, which might have been more lethal, it was 500 V AC after finally getting to where I could hold a meter to check it.
Remember all the outrage over Tiananmen Square?
It looked a lot like this.
If they keep this up, even the boot licking conservatives will hold the AGWs in lower esteem…
Doubt that will ever happen, Mark…
Dunno MM, hard to break bootlickers. They feel good with all that shit in their face. I know so many woman who called the cops and ended up being the “arrested” although nothing like what they were wishing on the other party. Probably still calling em.
