Los Angeles, CA—The L.A. City Council is considering massive security changes at all LAPD facilities.
This follows an April 7, 2014 shooting inside the lobby of LAPD's West Traffic Division. Daniel Yealu, 29, who was rejected as a police recruit entered the station with a handgun opening fire on two officers assigned to desk duty. The officers returned fire, striking Yealu critically injuring him.
One officer was shot seven times but survived and was quickly discharged from the hospital and is expected to make a full recovery.
Now it’s a sure thing what changes will be made. Expensive redesign and reconstruction of police facilities further separating citizens from government are the only things politicians will consider.
Of course those seeking to harm cops do so on our streets every day. Unfortunately those attacks will continue as long as the human race exists.
The L.A. City Council members are themselves a bunch of candy asses. They set up a frisk, demean and humiliate system for we the people doing simple business with the city. Apparently these pathetic politicians feel that they are at risk and deserve more than the armed police officers that were already in place protecting them.
These very same politicians demand that convenience store clerks, taxi drivers and pizza delivery people stay unarmed and helpless.
Our Constitution does not and cannot provide absolute safety for anybody. Despite every possible precaution there are deadly weapons and murders in every maximum-security prison in the world. Life has risks that we all must accept.
Politicians, appointed bureaucrats and government agents deserve no more security than anyone else. Of course they don’t see it that way.
I guess our politicians think they deserve the royal treatment. It’s only a matter of time before we have food tasters to screen whatever these pompous jerks eat for poison.
This frisk, demean and humiliate system began in the 1970’s in response to a few violent incidents in the 1960’s. Many of the ringleaders behind those violent and deadly acts are today revered icons of America’s political Left Wing like Angelia Davis and Bill Ayers.
We survived a Civil War, World War I and World War II without suspending the Fourth Amendment to our Bill of Rights. Nothing has changed except non-stop, escalating government tyranny and extortionate taxation.
We cannot apply for Social Security benefits, a passport, serve on jury duty or contest a parking ticket without the frisk, demean and humiliate treatment from government tyrants.
Why do our politicians deserve more protection than convenience store clerks? Today politicians envision themselves as Hollywood A-List members needing bodyguards, an entourage complete with paparazzi photographers.
The adoring major media players and star-struck reporters sensationalize our politician’s political profiles as personal PR agents rather than providing legitimate news.
We’ve become a very sorry state of, Us and Them. Our politicians have removed themselves from we the people. This was the beginning of the fall of the United States of America and the Freedom and Liberty that this nation used to represent.
We’ve become a surveillance society and police state that George Orwell so accurately predicted. I see no hope for our children.
Our politicians are completely saturated with a culture of corruption and entitlement. It's our fault since they have the absolute power we gave them.
Our politicians will never scale back their massive control voluntarily. A violent revolution to return the United States back to its Constitution and Bill of Rights is the only solution.
Either productive Americans can violently fight for freedom or pack their refugee bags and head to liberty somewhere else.
