I was a "police officer" back in the early '70s the transformation was
just starting to take place from a mentality of a public servant working
for the citizens to "law enforcement". The first I noticed of it was
when the police departments started preferential hiring of ex-military
people returning from Viet Nam. They started introducing military
tactics into the department, including the first S.W.A.T. team. They
quit referring to people on the street as citizens and started calling
them "civilians", or more commonly "assholes".
"They looked for
opportunities to use their new toys provided from "federal assistance"
monies in the war on drugs. They changed the uniforms from the
blue-suited cop with an 8-sided hat with a shield on front to a set of
black or navy fatigues and a ball cap. They started shaving their heads
and pumping iron. They gave up on the idea that they put themselves in
the line of fire to protect and serve the public and took on a combat
marine attitude of protect their own above all else. I've known them to
murder cop-killers in the street, but have a could-care-less attitude
when a civilian is killed."
"I was lied to, lied about and set
up when I tried to expose some crooked cops. Things since 1975 have not
gotten better. The thugs in uniform now consider themselves to be
government agents of a totalitarian regime with limitless authority to
enforce the will of the government on all civilian assholes. There are
obviously exceptions to that rule, but those would never try to stand in
the way of the thugs."
"Sorry, but talk show hosts I have heard
that say we don't have to worry about tyranny in this "nation" because
our troops would never turn their guns on "Americans". They are wrong.
They have never read history. They don't realize the training and
brainwashing that takes place in the military now and in the
para-military police forces - especially the federales. Just wait until
big-O gets his Civilian National Security Force in place and all the
local wanna-be LEOs, Law Enforcement Officers join in with them."
