Last week Ademo posted about John Stossel’s special “Illegal Everything” as it included footage of our unjust arrests when passing through Jones County, MS in May of 2009 and when attempting to bail out friends in Greenfield, MA in July of 2010. Also included in the Stossel segment was a clip from an interview shot in September of 2011 in New York City (that evening and the following day this Occupy Wall Street-related content was captured).
Though much of the strike-the-roots comments I made didn’t make the segment, it’s still good to know that many, in this case Stossel, aren’t ignoring this issue: transparency of claimed double-standards by some who wear badges. Below is the related six-minute segment about the transparency (or the lack thereof) of public servants that includes a few comments and points of information.
The entire 42-min long “Illegal Everything” special addresses many other actions that, despite having no victim, sometimes result in strangers wearing badges initiating force based on claims of “just doing my job.”
The sooner each of us individually conclude that no one has extra rights (and vocalize and act accordingly) the sooner such institutionalized rights-violations will cease.
