Police apologists around the nation are exploiting the
deaths of officers in a brazen attempt to collectively play victim, while
daring to blame the people for waging a “war on cops.”
“There's a perception among officers in the field that
there’s a war on cops going on,” sneered Richard Roberts, the spokesman for the
always-draconian International Union of Police Associations.”
Of course, the only declared domestic “war” is the one that
has been waged against us by the police: the drug war. As a result of that war,
our “prestigious” law enforcement agencies on all levels have become so
militarized that even small town cops look like mech warriors.
To supply these war-wagers, a cottage industry of
quasi-government agencies, vendors, and suppliers gobble up absurd amounts of
taxpayer dollars to push their TASERS, jail cells, microwave pain rays and
naked body scanners. Because the police love you.
That’s about 30 civilians a month, more “casualties” than
some world conflict zones.
By contrast, 49 officers were killed in all of 2010.
It’s a shame the police unions think they can keep their
bloated, arrogant budgets by trampling all over the bodies of their fellow,
If they truly cared about officer safety, the police unions
would demand an end to the drug war--- the single biggest threat to officers,
and our rights.
