New York, NY—Selling cigarettes on the street cost a man his life. Think about it for a moment. Trying to make a meager living in a miserable economy by selling a legal product deserves death now in New York.
That’s precisely what happened to an obviously overweight (350 lbs.) and unhealthy man last week. A squad of cops investigating this tax transgression approached Eric Garner. Garner actually begged the cops to leave him alone. Soon Garner began to shun the cops and resist being handcuffed and the cops piled on him. All too quickly, Garner was dead.
Was it the long banned chokehold? I don’t think so. I suspect positional asphyxia was the actual cause of death. Does it really make any difference how they killed him? Garner was killed not by policemen in the true sense of that noble occupation but a gang of government extortionists.
This was not about anything more than the attempted evasion of an outrageous tax on a legal product that millions consume in America.
Our greedy politicians expand their power and the government monster by overtaxing anything they can. We all know that this was about money rather than evil, violence or simple public safety.
Cops used to be there to protect and help us from evil. They all signed up to help their fellow man, not to become extortionists. However politicians changed the game decades ago by feeding the government monster with fines for minor offenses.
Along the way our politicians stayed wide-awake nights dreaming of the creation new petty offenses and raising the fines on the ones already on the books. They all need to bribe contractors for crap we don’t need for reelection campaigns. That takes money and new creative ways of taking it from the public.
Parking enforcement and meters led the extortion parade. Today unconstitutional Photo traffic enforcement has provided billions of illicit dollars to local governments.
Most Americans don’t have a clue that they only way to convict people with photo enforcement and collect fines flagrantly violates our Sixth Amendment rights to confront and cross-examine witnesses against us.
Where there is no live witness to a transgression courts must rely on long banned hearsay testimony to admit photo and computer data evidence into court. You can’t cross-examine and ask the photograph about errors or equipment malfunctions. Was the equipment actually tampered with to make it appear there was a violation by greedy equipment manufacturers selling government on this garbage?
The whores in local politics appoint the judges and they know they better side with those that feed them. Again, those sworn to defend it have trashed our Constitution.
You can of course appeal the fines to higher courts where the judges owe nothing to local politicians. However that red light ticket conviction will cost as much as a house to appeal to your state Supreme Court and a couple of million more to get a shot at the U.S. Supreme Court.
The cost of court appeals denies all of us justice facilitating the tyranny of or politicians. If we somehow had the money it still takes decades for these cases to be litigated and decided by the courts. It’s truly a case of justice both denied and delayed.
The only real remedy is through unimaginable self-help by violent revolution. The Second Amendment was designed to that we the people would have arms parity with the government. We’ve allowed the government to disarm the population and any arms we do have are not remotely comparable to those military grade arms.
Today Americans could not stop a rogue President much better than Germany or Russia could stop Adolf Hitler or Josef Stalin.
As long as it’s only the government breaking the law that’s seems okay with today’s Americans.
Politicians know Americans cannot possibly afford to seek justice against rogue politicians and they expect us all to simply shrug off the tyranny. Our forefathers would have simply found and killed all these bastards.
How soon we forget that we revolted against the British over a 3% tax on tea. Have we forgotten that Americans began to kill those that dare extort from them? Have they forgotten that they became free of their corrupt oppressors by chasing the ones that survived back to the UK?
Cops are not nor should they be they ever become hated tax collectors. However the Communists and Socialists we’ve elected have a different idea and like in every totalitarian society the cops are never on the side of the population.
The very reason we demanded our politicians and public officials take an oath to the Constitution was to prevent what we’ve allowed our nation to become.
We now have a full-blown police state. We have more people imprisoned per capita than any other nation on earth that proves the point.
Slowly they’ve promoted the snitch system where our neighbors and children can be rewarded to turning us in to the authorities.
It’s only a matter of time before the death penalty will be used against anyone criticizing politicians or government tyranny. They of course will claim this is necessary for public safety and a large percentage of the population will actually believe it.
Those that love the idea of giving politicians to power of the death penalty need to rethink their position.
We better get used to the idea of many more killings like Eric Garner’s. That’s even if they prosecute those NYPD officers for excessive force. The cops are no longer here for public safety but simple extortion.
