Making people mad

3 months ago

Image

People are tired of me harping on cops. I know it. They've told me so. It makes them mad. It hurts their feelings. It makes them... uncomfortable. They don't want to hear it.

I understand why. But I'm not sure I want to stop. It's just too important for liberty to make sure to drive the point home, and to never let up. To never give an inch.

Cops are where the boot heel of tyranny meets the human face. Without their active aggression, there would be no such thing as political power. The opinions of the bullies of the State would be nothing but a bit of hot air, quickly lost to the gentlest breeze.

Next to cops, presidents are nothing. "Laws" are nothing. Corrupt prosecutors (but I repeat myself) are nothing. Power-crazed judges are nothing. Bureaucrats are nothing. The State is nothing. Cops are the one thing that makes government a problem for Rightful Liberty and those who exercise it. Nothing else even comes close-- no matter how evil and reprehensible other things may be.

Yes, I understand it is tiresome to hear "Cops are scum" and "Cops are losers" again and again. But it is more important than anything else you can hear, with regards to liberty. It is absolutely crucial to understand why you can't support cops without polluting yourself; without being a part of the problem. It's just the way it is, and telling it the way it is makes people mad. And, yet I keep on.

I try to be nice about it. I try to not get profane and angry like so many others I see. Quite honestly, I am not angry; I am persistent in speaking this irritating truth. Truth is mistaken for anger when that truth is painful.

In my day-to-day life I don't worry about cops a tenth as much as some of the people I know who don't have a principled stance against policing-- simply because they fear being the target of police attention. Or because they worry that a cop will see them doing something "illegal" while driving. That's something I really don't worry about. It is what it is, and I'm not going to live my life worrying about those parasites.

As with any gang, I avoid contact as much as possible. I recognize what they are, and I don't sugar-coat it. And I go on with my life, knowing they are utterly irrelevant and worthless in the grand scheme of things.

But, I know it is something the population needs to keep being reminded of, because the cult is so ubiquitous and so generally popular. And because it is important.

Good and keep harping! Americans need to open their eyes to what's happening in this country. The problem with the police has to do with training. The militant shoot first and ask questions later has to stop. They are not the military, they are police. Their job is to protect and serve, not murder and rob! Keep up the good fight and don't let anyone silence you!

·

Their job would be to report and investigate, but we don't live in a free society, so their job is monopolized violence to "protect and serve", which are just euphemisms for following orders and "maintaining law and liberty(oxymoron as liberty is arbitrarily against numerous laws)".

·

The main problem with the police is that theirs is a "job" which shouldn't even exist. The training problems are a distant second. They protect and serve the politicians who hold their leashes and send them a cut of the stolen money. And that's who they have always served and protected. #CopsAreScum

Upvoted good read thanks.

Keep it up, because this truly is a lesson that people need to learn. And they can learn by hearing the message and doing a bit of reflection, or they can learn when they're face-down on the asphalt with a knee in their back and steel around their wrists. Hopefully, if more learn through the former way, they can avoid learning it the latter way.

You could always join black lives matter. I bet you'd feel right at home there.

It's important to recognize that there are criminals in every segment of the population. Be it cops, lawyers, judges, politicians, doctors, etc. There are those who ruin it for all the rest; the bad ones who give the good ones a bad rep. And then there are those who paint everyone with the same brush. See, your entire premise is based on a fallacy. It's called the hasty generalization, also known as the informal fallacy or the faulty generalization. Wikipedia describes it as: reaching an inductive generalization based on insufficient evidence—essentially making a rushed conclusion without considering all of the variables.

Perhaps you need to put your hate aside and re-think your argument if you want people to take you seriously. An argument based on a fallacy will only go so far.

Are some mafia knee-cap shooters "good guys"?
Are only some rapists "bad apples"?
Can you really rob, kidnap, molest, cage, and live on stolen money in a "good way"?
Can you choose to do evil for money on a daily basis and still somehow be "good"?
Or, do the acts that people willingly choose to do illustrate whether the person is good or bad?

You are obviously a disgruntled individual with a reason to hate the police. Is it because you've done something you shouldn't have? What's the real reason for your hate? It's pretty unreasonable to suggest that ALL police are criminals. Imagine for a second what your world would look like without it. Sure, it's not perfect; but what is? I take no issue with your views on government as a whole. I have libertarian leanings myself and tend to believe that smaller government results in increased individual responsibility and more freedom. But you're suggesting anarchy which is a fairy tale akin to communism - it only works in your dreams. Realistically you do need essential government services however limited they may be. It's like suggesting we don't need fire fighters anymore, or doctors, or dentists. So yeah.. you're just engaged in baseless ranting without offering any realistic solutions. Your world without police can't exist. It's unreasonable, impractical and unrealistic. Perhaps only good subject matter for Hollywood.

"Is it because you've done something you shouldn't have?"

That's always the assumption that cop supporters make. And it's completely off-base. I have never once "been in trouble with the law". Sorry to disappoint you.
Do I have to have been murdered to understand that murder is wrong? Or might I recognize it is wrong no matter who the victim is?

"It's pretty unreasonable to suggest that ALL police are criminals."

Really? You didn't address my points. A cop CAN NOT keep the "job" without committing acts which violate people who are not violating anyone's person or property. It simply isn't possible. You can call people who violate others whatever you want, but you can't change the reality.

"Imagine for a second what your world would look like without it"

Oh, I've spent much, much more than a second imagining and discussing such a world. Would it be Utopia? LOL. Nope. But removing the veil of legitimacy from the most aggressive gang in America would be a vast improvement.

"But you're suggesting anarchy which is a fairy tale akin to communism - it only works in your dreams."

Really? Who do you ask permission from when you choose to buy groceries? Why dictates which store you are allowed to shop in? Who tells you who you are allowed to befriend, date, or speak to? Who decides what color shoes you wear when you have a vacation? Anarchy is how everyone, yes everyone, lives the vast majority of their lives. The parts where someone acts as a Ruler over them are thankfully tightly limited, or else nothing would ever be accomplished.

"Realistically you do need essential government services however limited they may be. "

Such as? Can you think of no ways to provide that service without forcing your friends, family, and neighbors to pay for it under threat of death?

"It's like suggesting we don't need fire fighters anymore, or doctors, or dentists."

Actually, it's not like that at all. Government isn't voluntary. You aren't given the choice to opt out. You aren't allowed to provide something better for yourself, if you've found a better way. Even if you do find a better way, you'll be forced to fund and accept the poor government monopoly "option", too-- paying twice for something you want, and having one of those be the provider you don't want at all.
Saying things can only be provided through coercion is like saying firefighters get to kick in your door at 3 a.m. to see if you possess a candle. It's like saying your doctor is assigned by a bully, and you have to pay for his services whether you use them or not. Don't need your appendix removed? Too bad. You're being charged for it anyway. And don't think about being able to choose a doctor you can afford and trust. You get the one you are assigned, period, because it is a monopoly.

"So yeah.. you're just engaged in baseless ranting without offering any realistic solutions."

Just because you haven't read them doesn't mean I (and hundreds of others) haven't offered them.

"Your world without police can't exist."

Really? Tell that to the entire world before about 1840.

Feel free to keep your cops if you feel you need them, just keep those filthy parasites away from me and mine.

"Filthy parasites"... oh yeah. That's the mark of a reasonable man right there.

Keep them away from you and yours? Or what..?

Unfortunately for you cops are gonna stick around and no matter how much you hate them, that will not change. And if you really think you are going to get into a little incident when they do show up to "you and yours"; you better think again because the odds are gonna be in their favour. You will not win.

I'm all for open debate, but when the other party resorts to name calling and threats, you realize pretty quick the debate is over. Cheers.

"That's the mark of a reasonable man right there."

Yes, because reasonable men accept reality and define things correctly, even if "the majority" disagrees.

"And if you really think you are going to get into a little incident when they do show up to "you and yours"; you better think again because the odds are gonna be in their favour."

Just because they have a bigger gang and better weapons doesn't mean they are right. I try to avoid confrontations with gang members for exactly this reason, whether they call themselves MS-13 or "the police".

"but when the other party resorts to name calling and threats..."

Which I didn't do. Calling something by its correct name isn't "name calling". The truth simply offended you. And that's fine.

This must really make you happy, right? Did you crack a bottle of champagne to celebrate this welcome news? This parasite cop probably deserved being killed since he had no business helping car crash victims. I mean, the gall of this "parasite" to go and involve himself by trying to help victims! And not to mention his wife and kid, they surely deserve this tragedy since well she should have known better than to marry a parasite! Can you imagine just having gone through a car crash, and some parasite arrives to try and help you get back on your feet; to see if you're breathing okay, if you need an ambulance or maybe a drink of water. Disgusting. Who wouldn't rather die than accepting a drink of water from a low-life parasite cop?

The real tragedy of all of this is that when YOU find yourself in a predicament that you did not expect, the police will STILL be there to help you - even if it costs his or her life as was the case here. Now THAT is what you call ironic. It is also what you call being a human being, something you are obviously not familiar with. Perhaps you need to find forgiveness in yourself and learn to love your neighbour again as yourself. Other than that I have nothing left to say to you.

"This must really make you happy, right?"

Not really. Please read the links below before continuing to paint yourself into a corner.

"This parasite cop probably deserved being killed since he had no business helping car crash victims."

Not at that moment. And I'd say the same if he were a member of MS-13 who stopped to help. Anyone, even cops, can do good things. It doesn't excuse the bad things they do.

I also didn't fail to notice that the cop's death can be directly tied to the stupid and evil War on Politically Incorrect Drugs. How many of those anti-drug "laws" did the cop help impose on innocent people in the 6 years he was a cop? How many lives did he ruin? How many children did he kidnap a parent away from while "just doing his job"? Why do you ignore the cost on society of this "job" and those who demean themselves enough to commit those acts of enforcement?

"...since well she should have known better than to marry a parasite! "

You said it, not me.

"Who wouldn't rather die than accepting a drink of water from a low-life parasite cop?"

I would accept help from any sort of thug in the event of an emergency. It doesn't mean I'll embrace or excuse the evil he does the rest of the time.

"It is also what you call being a human being, something you are obviously not familiar with."

I am thoroughly familiar with being a human being-- yet I am able to be one without living on stolen money and imposing the opinions of political bullies on my friends, family, and neighbors. Without violating their life, liberty, and property on behalf of a gang of bullies who call themselves "government". And that's the issue I have with cops. The very nature of their "job" requires them to violate everyone most of the time, and help people very rarely (and get praise heaped on them when they do-- acting human is a newsworthy event for cops).

"Perhaps you need to find forgiveness in yourself and learn to love your neighbour again as yourself."

I do love my neighbors-- that's why I don't molest them or enforce "laws" against them.
I will also forgive any former cop who quits the "job", turns his life around, and commits himself to live by theft and aggression no more. Immediate forgiveness (real trust would take some time, but I'm willing to give the benefit of a doubt until given reason not to).

... and since you didn't even bother to do a simple google search on the history of policing, I'll include it for you here. It turns out policing has been around for a helluva long time, mainly because criminals have been around for a long time. Go figure. Buh-bye.
