When Should You Shoot A Cop - by Larken Rose


That question, even without an answer, makes most “law-abiding taxpayers” go into knee-jerk conniptions. The indoctrinated masses all race to see who can be first, and loudest, to proclaim that it is NEVER okay to forcibly resist “law enforcement.” In doing so, they also inadvertently demonstrate why so much of human history has been plagued by tyranny and oppression.

In an ideal world, cops would do nothing except protect people from thieves and attackers, in which case shooting a cop would never be justified. In the real world, however, far more injustice, violence, torture, theft, and outright murder has been committed IN THE NAME of “law enforcement,” than has been committed in spite of it. To get a little perspective, try watching a documentary or two about some of the atrocities committed by the regimes of Stalin, or Lenin, or Chairman Mao, or Hitler, or Pol Pot, or any number of other tyrants in history. Pause the film when the jackboots are about to herd innocent people into cattle cars, or gun them down as they stand on the edge of a ditch, and THEN ask yourself the question, “When should you shoot a cop?” Keep in mind, the evils of those regimes were committed in the name of “law enforcement.” And as much as the statement may make people cringe, the history of the human race would have been a lot LESS gruesome if there had been a lot MORE “cop-killers” around to deal with the state mercenaries of those regimes.

Anyone that reads the article will likely be surprised how supportive they are of the idea that you might think about resiting _before_ they close the sliding doors on the Cattle Car.

I certainly understand why Law-Enforcement would rather the people act like cattle until the end. But for them to purposely bring attention to this particular article (creating a flood of readers already) means that they either have not read it (likely for many LEOs) or they are advocating the idea that a Gov't Official should never ever under any circumstances be resisted.

I don't think they understand the debate that they have unleashed.

But don't think that your arguments are going to be met with a reasoned argument from them... they got guns and force and intimidation. And LEOs are trained to get their way one way or another,... and be proud of what they've done for... fill in the blank justification.

I simply advocate a peaceful understanding of all of the facts and as much understanding as possible... but I think that is what is the most threatening to those that rely so much on manipulation of information.

Which... BTW is why we can expect more Internet Control Legislation to become all the rage in legislative bodies.
