What is a police officer anymore? Why nothing more than a government extortionist! Outrageous accusation you say? Not really, let’s examine the facts.
Since this country was founded we have been making laws non-stop to reduce freedom. We went on an orgy of making laws for victimless crimes. Gambling, prostitution, alcohol and drug bans are at the top of the list. We have placed speed limits on our wonderful and safely constructed highways that only contribute to accidents by creating unnecessary congestion.
In recent decades we have criminalized self-defense as we allowed for laws that directly defy the Second Amendment to our Bill of Rights. Police are seen as a party to this systemic rights violation.
We’ve done the same with privacy as we now require police to invade our possessions, personal records and body cavities in direct contradiction to our Fourth Amendment rights against unreasonable search and seizure. Frisking Americans like prison convicts has become the accepted way to greet airline passengers and those taxpayers entering public buildings.
What we’ve done is change the direction of law enforcement from dealing with real crime and appointed them as government tax collectors. Instead of dealing with a limited divide between police and criminals we have a divide between police and citizens.
The problem with this is that cops are no longer considered the people to turn to for help. The cops are really here to find ways of raiding your wallets and bank accounts. The problem is only getting worse as big spending government officials look for new and creative ways to fund their unchecked spending on things nobody wants or needs.
We need to turn police back into what they were intended to be someone to count on during an emergency. The policeman was your friend, but not anymore. He’s the skunk and your family picnic. We need to start repealing laws while we still can. We need to get runaway government under control.
