All men having power ought to be distrusted to a certain degree.
The enforcement arm of the U.S. government within the United States is our beloved police. We used to have peace officers in our country, but that’s a thing of the past. Peace officers were men who were respected within the community; they were our fathers, the fathers of our friends and they were our baseball and football coaches. Today we have the police; they are militarized, violent squads of paramilitary units and it would appear as though many of them believe they are above the law or above anyone else who isn’t a member of their club.
Throughout the years, this change occurred in the United States gradually. However, the message to the People has always been the same, “Comply with the government edict or else.” A cowering and subservient populace is what the U.S. government has been working to achieve over the years, and since 9/11, their efforts have been ratcheted-up considerably.
Since 9/11, U.S. soldiers and citizens in the United States have much in common, unfortunately one of those things is the amount of deaths in a war zone. Police have killed about the same amount of people in the U.S. compared to those soldiers who died fighting in Iraq for our nation, that number is about 5,000 (1). That many dead Americans at the hands of the police, especially in that short period of time, is totally unacceptable. If the numbers for these killings are the same as in a war zone, then don’t we live in a war zone as well? Unfortunately, the troops who are killing us are our own people and they have been sanctioned by the government to carry out this mission. It seems rather odd that you have the same chance of survival whether you are an American in the United States or fighting the War in Iraq. The facts is, we have an overly militarized police force in the United States and they are not armed to the teeth for our protection, they are there for the protection of the government.
Statistics from the Cato Institute for police brutality cases in the United States paints an ugly picture. These figures are only what was reported or met with certain standards, “From January 2010 through December 2010 the National Police Misconduct Statistics and Reporting Project recorded 4,861 unique reports of police misconduct that involved 6,613 sworn law enforcement officers and 6,826 alleged victims (2).” Naturally, the taxpayers picked up the tab for the police who are abusing them because the police are protected by the government. The estimated payouts to the victims totalling “$346,512,800…spent on misconduct-related civil judgments and settlements excluding sealed settlements, court costs, and attorney fees.” The low estimate of $346.5 million paid to victims of the police is outrageous. Police brutality cases alone could bankrupt a city, so it’s no wonder we’re broke in the United States not to mention the anti-police rhetoric that is so prevalent in today’s world.
Since 1970, the intensity of these attacks on the public by the police have been growing at a rapid pace. It is apparent the government and their enforcement arm have little or no regard for the U.S. Constitution or the Bill of Rights. There has been a concerted effort to stifle our 1st Amendment Rights to free speech and a free press, or to peaceably assemble, or our freedom of religion (aimed at Christians), or to petition the government for a redress of grievances; our 2nd Amendment Rights to form a Militia and to keep and bear arms; our 4th Amendment Rights to be secure in our persons, houses, papers and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, or to have warrants issued by the court based on probable cause; our 5th Amendment Rights to not be held for capital or infamous crimes without a presentment or an indictment by a Grand Jury, or to be subjected to double jeopardy, or be compelled to be a witness against yourself, or to be deprived of life, liberty or property without due process of law, or to have private property taken without just compensation; our 6th Amendment Rights to a speedy, public trial, by an impartial jury, and the ability to confront witnesses; our 8th Amendment Rights to not have excessive bail or fines imposed, or to have cruel and unusual punishments inflicted; our 9th Amendment Right enumerated in the Constitution, not to be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the People; or our 10th Amendment Right regarding the powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by the Constitution to the States, are reserved to the States and to the People (3). All of these Rights are guaranteed to every American, but they are rapidly being eroded.
Our government and their enforcement arm routinely violate with impunity, the very laws they are in place to uphold; the U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights. I’m not suggesting the government and police shouldn’t go out and arrest those who commit violent crimes, but I don’t believe we should allow our government or our police to violently attack us at will, or to be overly militarized and break into our homes with no-knock warrants, or demand that we be submissive to their every whim. People who commit serious crimes need to be subdued, not the general population of the U.S.. We don’t need government control or a military patrolling our streets and our communities. The result of an overly militarized police force is always bad news.
Every government degenerates when trusted to the rulers of the people alone. The people themselves, therefore, are its only safe depositories.
On May 4, 1970, the Ohio National Guard was sent to Kent State University to stop students from exercising their 1st Amendment Right to assemble and speak out freely against the government and their policies. The guardsmen were armed with loaded M1 rifles with fixed bayonets (4). The end result was 67 shots fired at the unarmed students, four were killed, nine were wounded and one was paralyzed. The message that was being sent to the nation was simple, you will accept what we decree no matter what that is. In this case it was about Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos. The Nixon administration wasn’t about to let students rebel and burn draft cards or refuse to go to a country they couldn’t point out on a map and kill people.
What happened at Kent State was a show of force. It was a reminder to those who believed they had Rights, that they had none. Not one Guardsmen was convicted for their depraved actions that day. Unfortunately, the government didn’t change their tactics after killing unarmed hippies in Ohio. In fact, as hard as it is to believe, these incidents have intensified in their levels of violence and depravity over the years.
May 13, 1985 was another example of the government crushing the People who claimed they had no use for the government, their policies, their technologies or their filth. The MOVE compound in Philadelphia was bombed and burned to the ground by the police, out of the eleven people who were killed in the compound, five were children and dozens were wounded. Sixty-one homes were destroyed by the blaze the police started.
Unlike Kent State, this was about a group of black people who decided they could do a better job of conducting their own lives than the manner in which the government had decided for them. Obviously, there was a certain amount of animosity between MOVE and the government, but where in the Declaration of Independence, the U.S. Constitution or the Bill of Rights does it state the government has the right to kill those with a dissenting opinion or way of life?
To make matters even worse, the government just stood there and allowed an entire city block of homes to go up in flames. Talk about depraved indifference to human life, “Witnesses and MOVE members say that when members started to run out of the burning structure to escape a fiery death, police continued to fire their weapons (5).” I don’t know how anyone can believe it’s not murder when police fire on people trying to escape a blaze, which was set by the police in the first place. The people running out of the building were unarmed, but that didn’t stop the police from shooting them anyway.
Nobody from the government had criminal charges brought against them for this massacre. What the government was doing was sending out their message to the nation and probably the world: non-compliance will not be tolerated.
In August of 1992, over 400 heavily armed FBI, U.S. Marshals, National Guardsmen, along with other government law enforcement agencies attacked Randy Weaver’s family at their cabin on Ruby Ridge in Idaho. The government’s story was Weaver sold two sawed-off shotguns with 18¨ barrels to an undercover ATF agent. Weaver’s story was he sold two sawed-off shotguns to a man who practically begged him, and the barrels were at least 18.5¨, which is perfectly legal. Whether it was Weaver or the government agents who sawed-off the barrels a half-inch too short is unknown. What the government did was target, trespass and set up operations on Weaver’s property. They killed his dog, his son, his wife and they wounded Weaver.
This was clearly a government attempt to stop Weaver from exercising his Right to his religion and his Right to bear arms more than anything else, but it was also because Weaver was a separatist who didn’t believe in what he considered to be failed U.S. government policies and he wouldn’t go along with the government’s demand that he become an informant against the Aryan Nations. Once the government lost what they thought was leverage against Weaver, because of his refusals to their demands, they decided to silence him and his family.
The government clearly violated the Weaver’s 1st, 2nd, 4th, 5th and 8th Amendment Rights, and perhaps their 9th and 10th Amendment Rights as well. It’s also possible the Weaver’s 3rd Amendment Rights were violated. But the government and their agents were never held accountable. The incident wasn’t about a couple of shotguns, it was about taking away the Rights of an American who didn’t need or want “big brother” in his affairs.
The Weaver’s Right to freedom of religion was violated when he refused to be in informant within the church against others the government wanted information on. The Weaver’s Right to keep and bear arms was violated when the FBI decided “If any adult man is observed with a weapon…deadly force can and should be employed. If any adult in the compound is observed with a weapon…deadly force can and should be employed to neutralize the individual. If compromised by any animal…that animal should be eliminated. Any subjects other than Randall Weaver, Vicki Weaver, Kevin Harris…the FBI rules of deadly force are in effect (6).” The Weaver’s Rights to be secure in their persons, houses, papers and effects were violated when the government trespassed and set up serveillance on his property and the subsequent raid on his families cabin. His families Rights to life, liberty or property without due process of law were violated when the government assassinated his son and his wife. The Weaver’s Rights against cruel and unusual punishment were violated when government agents murdred his family in front of him because he wouldn’t acquiesce to their demands.
This was all about the government pushing their agenda on the American People. Once again the message was simple, you will submit to our demands no matter what they are, or we will kill you. This sounds very much like the foreign policy of our State Department, just acted out on our own soil, by our own people, at the behest of our own twisted government. Remember, just like Kent State, the government sent a militarized army of agents and police to crush Randy Weaver.
It is the madness of folly, to expect mercy from those who have refused to do justice; and even mercy, where conquest is the object, is only a trick of war; the cunning of the fox is as murderous as the violence of the wolf.
February to April of 1993 brought us the U.S. government’s siege of the Branch Davidian compound in Waco Texas. Whether David Koresh was some kind of nut-job or not is irrelevant, what is relevant was the government’s intention to crush a religious group and their way of life, making certain those ideas couldn’t spread. The entire incident could have easily been avoided by the arrest of Koresh at any time. He was know to jog daily and he would stop at the coffee shop and by a latte, but the ATF wanted to arrest Koresh inside the compound.
For the government’s efforts, over eighty Branch Davidians were killed including twenty-two children, this doesn’t include agent deaths (7). It is certain the U.S. government wasn’t going to allow an armed religious commune to exercise either their 1st or 2nd Amendment Rights much less any other.
This occurred in Waco Texas only six months after the Ruby Ridge incident in Idaho. How anyone can believe these raids aren’t standard practice for our government and their police enforcement arm is beyond me. Once the government targets a group or an individual in the United States there is no more rule of law and the only due process anyone will see are heavily armed, overly militarized police who are trying to kill them. This policy forces people to fight for their survival against government aggression, but that is the plan. In this way the U.S. government and their thralls are able silence anyone they wish, at any time, for any reason.
The ATF claimed the Branch Davidians had them outgunned, but that’s simply not the case. The U.S. government had their ATF and FBI agents backed up by the U.S. military with tanks and helicopters. To think people are going to feel warm and fuzzy when the government appears with such a massive show of force is preposterous. Our government screams and points fingers when another nation sends their military and tanks after people to kill them, but when the U.S. does the same thing it’s in the name of law, order and justice. That’s a lie. It’s in the name of power, retribution and dominance. It’s the government’s way of getting their message out to the masses: compliance is mandatory.
U.S. government mouthpieces claimed the fire was started as a result of the Branch Davidians spreading gasoline around the compound, which was lit by CS gas. This is another obvious lie. The tanks that were used by the government can be seen with some type of flamethrower lighting the structure on fire (8). But whether the fire was a result of a flamethrower or Flight-Rite CS gas grenades, which are pyrotechnics, the end result was the same. The federal agents removed all references to the pyrotechnic devices from their reports and they didn’t even think it was necessary to tell Congress they had used the grenades until 1999 (9) when they admitted the truth. Why lie if you are in the right? Naturally, nobody within the government was ever convicted of anything with regard to the Waco siege.
The U.S. government was able to get their message out to the nation and the world. That’s what’s really important, not the eighty people the government murdered or the complete violation of the U.S. Constitution. What the U.S. government is doing is they are preparing us all for their plans for the future police state of America and the world.
The WTO protests in Seattle at the end of November and the beginning of December 1999 are another example of the government’s use of militarized police and National Guard to quell the People’s Right to protest. The truth is, the Seattle Police Department and the King County Sheriff’s office were totally unprepared for the size and intensity of the protest they faced. The government failed to recognize there are people within the United States who understand the World Bank, IMF and WTO only exist to force their globalist agenda down our throats to destroy us.
A small percentage of the protesters were breaking storefront windows or vandalizing police cars. Nevertheless, when the riot squads went into action, everybody was a target. The people who lived in the area who had nothing to do with the vandalism and in many cases the protest, were still targeted by the police. People were subjected to attacks with tear gas, pepper-spray, rubber bullets and batons (10). In one day alone, over 500 people were arrested. The government didn’t waste any time declaring a state of emergency, imposing a curfew or creating a 50 block no protest zone, effectively suspending the U.S. Constitution for everyone residing or working within the area.
However, the government was able to ensure their delegates within the conference were able to go unfettered about their business of destroying nations with votes and a stroke of a pen via their phony trade agreements which strip us of our sovereignty and our way of life. The treatment given to the delegates wasn’t the same treatment given to the protesters, who had a differing opinion, or to the innocent bystanders attacked by police.
This time the message from our government wasn’t only about compliance with their fictional authority, it was about their corporate globalist plans for the future. Those plans involve much more than a 50 block no constitution zone. But the response was typical of an overreaching government and just another example of the standard practice of the U.S. government and their law enforcement arm.
The U.S. government doesn’t always go after groups, they target individuals as well. Their tactics are brutal, vicious, depraved and oftentimes deadly. Police brutality is a problem of epidemic proportions within the United States, it is a problem which has grown worse over the years and doesn’t look like it’s going to stop any time soon.
Rodney King was an example of brutal police tactics. King was beaten by ten to twelve LAPD officers, on March 3, 1991, while he was on the ground and not fighting back (11). There is no doubt King caused many of his own problems and he shouldn’t have led the LAPD on a high-speed chase through city streets, but the job of the police is to arrest people who do things like that, not beat the hell out of them with batons while they are prostrate on the ground. Immediately, the LAPD went after King’s Constitutionally guaranteed Rights. He was denied due process, an attorney, and the LAPD attempted to take away King’s Right to life, they did take away his liberty. According to a report, “King had suffered a cracked eye socket and cheekbone (both of which needed a metal plate), a broken leg, fractured ribs and several abrasions and contusions. He suffered from migraine headaches for the rest of his life. He said over the years he believed he would die from the beating (12).” I don’t doubt that at all.
None of the LAPD officers involved in the beating were convicted, which set off the LA Riots. The LAPD didn’t break out their batons for the riots though, they left everyone within the community to fend for themselves. All because the LAPD started something they shouldn’t have started and something they couldn’t finish. But they were getting the government’s message out just the same.
Brutal police tactics haven’t changed much in twenty years. On June 14, 2012, Chattanooga police beat Adam Tatum with metal batons approximately two hundred times. If you watch the video you will see the Chattanooga police behaved in the same manner as the LAPD did with King. While it is true, Tatum needed to be arrested and put in handcuffs for good reason, it isn’t true that the police needed to hit him 200 times (13).
During the video of the incident, we can see the two police officers are big, burly men compared to the skinny little trouble-maker they beat senseless. These two cops must have weighed 250 lbs apiece, they could have easily thrown Tatum around like a rag doll, so the only reason they didn’t turn him over and handcuff him was because they wanted to beat him. It is fairly obvious from the video that what the officers wanted, was for Tatum to willingly comply with their demands. But when Tatum refused, they had every right to grab the much smaller Tatum and put him face down on the ground and put handcuffs on him. Other officers joined in for some reason, one tased Tatum and others struck him. Tatum was in need of the emergency room, but instead he was drug outside to be mocked and kicked, while he was surrounded by police officers.
Fortunately, the Chief of Police fired the two officers after he watched the video. Chief Dodd counted 48 strikes from Officer Emmer’s baton and he called the beating excessive. He also said, “We do not condone this activity, nor will it be tolerated (14).” It doesn’t matter whether there were only 48 or 200 blows, what happened was excessive and extreme by any standard. The attorney for Tatum said, “Our complaint puts that at about 200…200 individual blows.” I congratulate the Chief for doing the right thing and I should hope that sort of “activity” won’t be tolerated by the police anywhere. Not even against someone who clearly deserves to be in a cell for a while. Neither officer Emmer or Cooley were indicted by the Grand Jury for aggravated assault in this matter.
But a Constitution of Government once changed from Freedom, can never be restored. Liberty, once lost, is lost forever.
On April 30, 2009, Minneapolis police officer Todd Lappengaard came up behind surrendered Rolando Ruiz, who had his hands on the front of the police car, then the officer put his taser to the back of Ruiz’s neck and tased him into submission. This is nothing less than a vicious attack by a disturbed officer. Ruiz had already surrendered and the MPD officer could have easily put him in handcuffs (15).
Lappengaard was subsequently fired, but no charges were brought against him for this vicious act. It is admirable that the Minnesota Police Department fired the officer, but anyone other than a cop would have faced charges. There seems to be two sets of rules with the police concerning what violence is and who serves time for committing violent acts.
If you say something to a cop and he doesn’t like it, you have committed assault on a police officer and you have resisted arrest. If a cop hits you 200 times you have also committed assault on a police officer and you have resisted arrest. There is no difference anymore. No crime even needs to be committed for this to happen. As far as serving time goes, it’s rare when the police wind up behind bars, that’s not so for the rest of the population. But there are plenty of instances where the dirty cops do wind up in prison.
On July 5, 2011, Fullerton California police beat Kelly Thomas nearly to death in the street. Thomas died five days later from the severe head, face and neck injuries he sustained in the beating. Thomas was punched, kicked, slammed on the concrete, tased and hit in the head with a flashlight by a group of at least four policemen. Kelly Thomas was a homeless man who had schizophrenia. The police claimed he wouldn’t comply and was resisting. If you watch the video of the incident, what you will see are a group of government thugs viciously attacking a man they could have easily handcuffed and taken to jail (16), but they killed him instead.
Only two of the six officers were charged with crimes. Manuel Ramos was charged with 2nd degree murder and involuntary manslaughter and Cpl. Jay Patrick Cicinelli was charged with involuntary manslaughter and felony use of excessive force. The other four officers who assisted Ramos and Cicinelli and helped cover-up the incident walked free. If the police are murderers, then why should any of us trust them? Why should they expect help from the People and community they abuse?
A more recent example of vicious police tactics would be the July 1, 2014 beating of Marlene Pinnock by California Highway Patrolman Daniel Andrew on the side of a freeway. Pinnock was walking to where homeless people gather and sleep when Trooper Andrew grabbed her and threw her to the ground, then he repeatedly struck her in the head with his fist. Marlene Pinnock is a 51-year-old grandmother, not a Green Beret. The video of the incident clearly shows Trooper Andrew viciously attacking the woman (17). If the CHP officer was so concerned with Pinnock’s safety, then why didn’t he just try to corral her away from the traffic? No, he was concerned with her safety so he beat the hell out of her. Maybe Pinnock did walk away from him, but that would only mean she wasn’t a threat to the officer. This police behavior is standard policy or it wouldn’t happen so often. The only other reason I can think of is the man is a psycho, but as far as I know, the police departments throughout the United States don’t hire psychos to be police officers. California law enforcement is only trying to hide the fact that what they produce is a culture of violence.
We’ll have to wait and see what happens to State Trooper Andrew. My guess is he won’t be indicted and he won’t serve any prison time, but I could be wrong. Once again I hear the message of the government an their enforcment arm; you have no Rights and you will do exactly what you are told or else. Compliance is mandatory, there is no other option.
The beating, torture and sodomizing of Abner Louima by NYPD officers in a police precinct bathroom August of 1997, is a perfect example of depraved police conduct. Louima was arrested during a scuffle outside of a nightclub. The NYPD officers involved handcuffed Louima before they beat him, then they sodomized him with the handle of a toilet plunger before jamming it into his mouth. How anyone can consider this police work is beyond me.
One of the problems for the NYPD was that Louima was a family man with a job, he wasn’t a vagrant. His family contacted the police internal affairs department, not the other police officers within the precinct. Louima, who suffered a perforated colon, a ruptured bladder and broken teeth from the attack, was left to bleed in a holding cell for hours without treatment of any kind.
Two of the NYPD officers went to prison, Volpe was sentenced to 30 years and Schwartz was sentenced to 5 years (18). While I am in favor of the prison sentences, I have to wonder about the other officers who were in the precinct at the time. Why didn’t any of them put a stop to what was going on? Certainly someone must have heard or saw what was happening to Louima, but not one officer stood up and did the right thing. I guess we can’t expect police officers to cross the ‘thin blue line’, that might have a detrimental effect on their club privilages.
During May of 2012, Troopers Nathaniel Turner and Jennie Bui decided body cavity searches on two women would be the appropriate thing to do on the side of the highway in Texas (19). Trooper Bui inserted her gloved fingers into each woman’s vagina without changing the gloves between women, which is extremely unsanitary. These women, Brandy Hamilton and Alexandria Randle just left the beach and were not wearing much. Trooper Turner had to bring up the phony marajuana smell as probable cause, but no drugs were ever found.
Trooper Turner said, “She (Bui) is about to get up-close and personal with some womanly parts (20).” Who gave the police departments in this nation the authority to perform body cavity searches on people? And who gave them the authority to do this anywhere or in any manner they decide? This is sexual assault and probably rape. An abuse of power such as this should not be tolerated by anyone.
Apparently, both of these fine examples of police officers have been fired, but Bui was reinstated. The DPS claimed she “was a relatively inexperienced Trooper” and she was just following orders. Well, that makes me feel better. Why reinstate her? Perhaps Bui would be better suited for a different line of work, possibly one which doesn’t require too much thinking. As far as “just following orders” goes, that line didn’t work at the Nuremberg Trials, so why should it work in the United States?
Again Texas Police acted in a depraved fashion on July 13, 2012, when a State Trooper performed body cavity searches on two other women on the side of a Texas highway in front of passing motorists and without changing her gloves after sticking her fingers in one woman’s rectum then into her vagina (21). The Trooper also didn’t change her gloves when she went on to do the same to the other woman. Once again, where I come from that’s not just called unsanitary, it’s called sexual assault. I call it rape.
State Trooper David Farrell stopped the two women and made up a story about smelling marijuana, but State Trooper Kelley Helleson who committed the sexual assaults on the two women didn’t find any marijuana. Farrell didn’t find any either. Farrell did find a bottle of Vicadin in one of the women’s purses and stole it. Farrell was indicted on one count of theft. Helleson was fired and charged with two counts of sexual assault.
Both of these incidents of sexual assault, which were committed by depraved police officers in Texas against innocent people, are a message and that message is coming in crystal clear; you will submit to the government even when we rape you, you can’t stop us. I would suggest just the opposite position. We can do something about this sort of police behavior and if these types of incidents continue, the People in massive numbers throughout the U.S. will no longer be so tolerant. I would offer the police a copy of the U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights as an example of our Law which clearly states we don’t have to tolerate this type of abuse; there is a remedy for the problem at hand.
How strangely will the Tools of a Tyrant pervert the plain Meaning of Words!
There are also plenty of examples of the police simply killing people for no reason at all. Many encounters between the government’s law enforcement arm and the public end in death. To me, this sounds like a lack of due process and the Right against cruel and unusual punishment. But as we have already seen, punishment is what the police are all about these days. Let’s look at some uncalled for instances of police shootings.
The NYPD shot and killed Amadou Diallo on February 4, 1999, while he sat on the stoop outside of his home. Four NYPD officers fired forty-one times at Diallo hitting him nineteen times (22). Diallo tried to enter into his home after being shot. The police claimed he had a weapon in his hand, but it was Diallo’s wallet.
The NYPD claimed the four officers conduct was within their department policy, but the Grand Jury indicted the four on charges of 2nd degree murder and reckless endangerment, but all four were acquitted. What message does this send to the People of New York, the People of the United States or the people of the world? The message is clear, the U.S. government and their police have the right to kill anyone they wish, for any reason they wish and they will not be held accountable.
On January 1, 2009, Bart (Bay Area Rapid Transit) police in Oakland California shot unarmed Oscar Grant in the back while he way laying prostrate on the floor and was being held by another officer (23). Officer Mehserle’s claim was he thought he pulled out his Taser to shoot Grant in the back, but it turned out to be his pistol instead; it was just an accident. Grant died the next day from his injuries.
Mehserle was sentenced to two years in prison for involuntary manslaughter for shooting an unarmed 23-year-old in the back, killing him. This is gross incompetence on the part of the police and our legal system. Grant did absolutely nothing to warrant execution, which was what happened. I suppose the government didn’t think the Constitution applied to Grant, but it did. As long as the government can get their message of compliance is mandatory out to the People, that’s what matters.
Manteca California police shot Ernesto Duenez, Jr. eleven times, killing him on June 8, 2011, in front of his wife. Duenez was unarmed, but the police claimed he had a knife. The officer who shot Duenez was not only behind the vehicle, but he was at least six feet away as Duenez exited the passenger side of the vehicle to run away from the police. The officers continued to point their weapons at Duenez while he was on the ground bleeding to death (24).
The dash-cam video of the incident shows the officer who shot Duenez frantically searching the victim’s dead body for a weapon he couldn’t find or that didn’t exist. This killing is nothing less than cowardice on the part of Officer Moody. The video shows a scared and trigger happy policeman executing a man who should have only been arrested.
These few examples of men who were murdered by the police, Kelly Thomas, Amadou Diallo, Oscar Grant and Ernesto Duenez, are all interchangeable. They are all the same as the victim’s of the government at Kent State, Ruby Ridge or Waco. These people were selected and used as pawns by our government and their enforcement arm to make a statement to the People.
None of these examples can be considered police work. They can be considered the work of angry, violent individuals who should never be allowed to wear any type of badge, nor should they ever be allowed in any position of authority. I congratulate the few who tried to do the right thing by stopping other cops from committing crimes or by their leadership who fired those responsible for these acts. But it has become blatantly obvious that someone other than the police needs to be policing the police.
No knock, warrantless raids by our overly militarized police generally lead to disaster for the People, just not for the cops. Some of the headlines are startling, the results of these unconstitutional raids are shocking. The problem is, the government and their police are so afraid of the population of the United States, they need to come to your house with a tank and a squad of heavily armed soldiers and terrorize you. To our government and our police, we are all guilty until we prove our innocence.
Some of the headlines for no knock, warrantless raids are, “Innocent grandmother shot during violent DEA drug raid in New Hampshire,” “SWAT team breaks down door, shoots man as he watched TV with friend,” “Indiana grandmother suffers violent SWAT raid after a neighbor uses her wireless internet,” “Violent SWAT raid leaves St. Paul family traumatized, two pets shot dead,” “Two homes forcibly commandeered by police, innocent homeowners arrested,” “Police raid wrong home, throw innocent woman into yard half naked,” “DHS ransacks Florida couple’s home without explanation, strips woman naked,” “Police burst into wrong apartment, shoot innocent woman hiding in closet,” “Texas grandmother, autistic man held at gunpoint in wrong-door police raid,” “Pittsburgh SWAT breaks into wrong home, leaving innocent grandmother violated,” “Innocent man woke up to a SWAT team in his bedroom and a gun to his head,” “No-knock SWAT raid leaves Texas father dead, family traumatized,” “SWAT team throws concussion grenade into baby playpen during no-knock raid,” “Paralyzed man raided by SWAT, sentenced to 25 years for possessing his own medicine,” “Florida man and his dog killed by SWAT team during pre-dawn no-knock raid,” “Mother and children terrified during late night police raid on wrong apartment,” “Mother of three negligently shot in the head during botched drug raid,” “NYPD broke down door without warrant, beat up family, stomped pet bird to death,” “Police kill innocent 80 year old man in his bed after claiming his house smelled like meth,” “Marijuana raid leaves unarmed New Orleans man dead in his home,” “Did three people have to die over painkillers? The Cullen Mutrie raid,” “Jose Guerena’s family gets settlement, but his killers still wear badges,” “Misidentified man killed when SWAT team started his house on fire,” and “Police perform 5:00AM raid to look for missing cell phone, give father a fatal heart-attack (25).”
The overly militarized police in the United States have accomplished many things, they have terrorized grandfathers and grandmothers, fathers and mothers, children, they have killed people of all ages innocent or guilty, pets have been slaughtered, property has been destroyed, wrong addresses and the people who live in those homes have been terrorized and murdered, and innocent people have been beaten, sexually assaulted, kidnapped and completely stripped of their Rights. All in the name of the un-holy justice our government and our police seek to force upon us all.
This is what no knock, warrantless police raids accomplish. We’re not talking about bank robbers inside of a bank with hostages, we’re not talking about kidnappers and their chained-up victims in the torture chamber or dungeon, we’re not talking about bomb-making factories in neighborhoods, we are talking about the everyday people the government and their police fear so greatly. Every example I have given is about fear; fear of the People by the police and by our cowardly leaders in the U.S. government. This reminds me of what the Nazis did to the Jews in Europe before and during WWII.
Our government and our police can’t stand the words Freedom or Liberty. The U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights are things they mock and work hard to destroy with each waking moment. These examples are just a few of what can be found on the subject of police brutality in the United States of America. But there are many more and they are just as revolting.
If this atmosphere of police violence doesn’t stop soon, the police departments throughout the United States will have no allies within the citizenry. When the People just stand there and do nothing while watching or filming the police being attacked, it will be a sad day not only for the police, but for the nation as well.
The People should not be considered the enemy of the police and the police should not be considered the enemy of the People. The evidence would suggest there is a gulf between the two at this moment in the United States. If this gulf continues to widen, the People will put a stop to the attacks by police. There are approximately 320 million people in the United States, fair estimates are that approximately 300 million firearms are also in the United States. This is why the government is pushing their War on the 2nd Amendment. Once the People of the nation are disarmed, they will be led like sheep to the slaughter.
There is no just law which states the People of our nation must be beaten into submission by our law enforcement agencies or by our government. But there are just laws which state we don’t have to put up with that sort of treatment, they can be found in the Declaration of Independence, the U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights (26).
Are we at last brought to such humiliating and debasing degradation, that we cannot be trusted with arms for our defense?
The Bundy Ranch Standoff in Nevada, in April of 2014, is another example of our overreaching government and their police (27). The government and the BLM decided a tortoise was more important than the ranchers who had been living and working there since the 1800s. The federal government was trying to squeeze Bundy off his land with grazing fees on what they call federal land. The truth is, that land belongs to the People of Nevada and to the People of the Republic, not some phony corporation called the United States which is mismanaged by the federal government.
The mainstream media portrayed Bundy and his supporters as right-wing radicals and domestic terrorists who have failed to pay whatever amount the government decided, in taxes and fees (28). Of course, Bundy’s family had been grazing their cows there and using that land for over one hundred years. Bundy’s family were the ones who have maintained that public land, not the government. It was the BLM who destroyed property and killed Bundy’s bulls, it was the BLM who showed up in force like the military, it was the BLM who stole Bundy’s herd of cattle, it was the BLM who attacked the People who were exercising their Constitutional Rights, it was the BLM who decided the 1st Amendment to the U.S. Constitution could only be exercised in a small roped off area miles away and it was the BLM snipers that were pointing their weapons at protesters and news reporters (29).
Our government and our courts won’t recognize the fact that Senator Harry Reid’s son is the representative for ENN Group out of China that wants that so-called federal grazing land that Bundy uses for part of their solar farm (30). Attempts at reducing Bundy’s herd size which would put him out of business was just another attempt at the government’s land grab. That is what this is all about. The federal government either wants that land for their Chinese friends at a reduced price, they believe there is oil, or both. Bundy is nothing more than the government’s scapegoat. If the government can keep the People’s eyes on Bundy and those crazy armed militia people, then nobody will be watching to see what is really going on there in the Nevada desert or anywhere else in the United States.
The BLM’s primary and misguided plan of armed intimidation and threats of death and/or bodily harm didn’t work, so they retreated (31). It’s more probable than not that the BLM didn’t think they could get away with a massacre that day or they would have. But these were armed cowboys and ex-military veterans who were there to support Bundy’s Rights, they weren’t a bunch of hippies who could just be pepper-sprayed in the face, then bullied and intimidated into leaving. The BLM had two choices, fire or leave. If they had fired on the ranchers and their supporters, then they probably would have started a war.
The federal government’s enforcement arm needs to stand down when they are given such stupid orders. Maybe one day they might even have the common sense to consider arresting the people who are giving these unlawful orders, rather than just blindly and mindlessly following them. A war against the People of the United States by the government’s police forces will not be victorious and it will never be the right path for our government to follow.
The People of the great State of Nevada and of the Republic of United States sent their message to the U.S. government in April. I believe that message was simply this: you will have to slaughter us in order to take by force what you want, but we will fight back and We the People will win.
There! His Majesty can now read my name without glasses. And he can double the reward on my head!
