KMBC-TV is reporting that a pair of federal corrections officers caught burglarizing cars are on administrative leave after being arrested for the burglaries in and around the Edwardsville Court retirement community: at least four this past Sunday, and officers believe other recent car burglaries may be related.
The two officers are employed by Corrections Corporation of America, a private prison management company running a federal facility in Leavenworth, Kansas. They have been placed on paid leave, of course, and “face possible further action later.”
Residents of the retirement community have security camera video of the men breaking into cars on Sunday and they say they want the men charged for their crimes. The residents believe these men have abused their authority and violated the public’s trust. The hell you say?
I’m not trying to be particularly flippant to the old folks, but what can they actually say that you and I have not said a thousand times? Nothing. Truth is, they just think and do as most people do and accept without question so-called authority. Authority that you and I know is rarely lawful and almost always immoral by even the loosest street whore’s standards.
They don’t know that our city police are just private security hired to protect the assets of the corporation of The State.
They still believe that the police serve a higher moral purpose. These citizens still say that “police protect us from crime” without realizing that police almost never actually stop crime. They are the same people who say our authorities are to be praised for their service to the community and their sacrifice to a greater calling without the understanding that what most police do is harass and extort their fellow citizens so they can “get paid, bitch!” Just like all gangsters do.
Don’t be sad or afraid for the residents of the retirement community; they’ll be fine. The criminals have been caught. They have evidence and the law on their side.
On second thought, be afraid, be very very afraid!
