On Houston Deputy: Cops Who Kill Are Getting Other Cops Killed

If there is one thing that can be relied upon it is that mainstream media and police officials will turn a tragedy into an opportunity to spout of their cockamamie bullshit. Let us go through some of their idiotic responses and and dissect them for the stupidity that they are.

Anti-police rhetoric is getting cops killed.

This accusation is so idiotic that it hurts me to even have to explain it. ‘Anti-police rhetoric’, as it were, is itself the direct result of police activity. It was not born in a vacuum. Nobody woke up one day and just randomly thought, “Hey, let’s criticize the cops for no reason whatsoever.” The backlash against police is due to the fact that the institution, and many of the individuals, have become the largest organized crime enterprise operating today. From the enforcement of unjust laws that lead to a slippery slope of social ruin to the blatant violence cops commit are the source of ‘anti-police rhetoric’.

However, I very much doubt that cop killers are killing cops just because they heard police criticism on the television. It is far more likely that they themselves have been the subject to a formative incident or even a lifetime of police harassment. Those who kill cops are likely to have had dealings with cops that made them scared and angry, the two reasons people actually commit murder. In fact, you could say that those who kill cops have come to see the dichotomy between themselves and police as an US vs. THEM scenario which led them to fear for their lives.

It seems that the officers who are murdered in such a way are often randomly targeted as victims by their killers. They are made to pay for the actions of other police and for the entire gravitas of the institution of policing. Yet they might still be alive if there was not a negative image associated with police; an image that is created by cops who themselves are criminals and killers. That ‘anti-police’ rhetoric is just a middleman. It would not exist if there were not so many killer cops to start the process. It is, therefore, killer cops that are getting cops killed.

Because Obama.

I am not here to argue politics. The last president that I thought was not a total washout was Grover Cleveland, and even he had faults and belonged to a system which is itself not resolvable. Every POTUS during my lifetime has been increasingly worse than the last, as the system itself becomes worse over time. I see very little difference between President Obama and his predecessor Cheney Bush.

Since the number of incarcerations resulting from the War on Drugs continues to rise, which disproportionately targets blacks, there could even be a case made that Obama’s presidency marks the most racist, anti-black period of American history. So to blame him for creating racial tensions on behalf of black people is not only a strange non-sequitur, but a reversal of known facts.

If anything, Obama has helped to strengthen the policies that lead to institutional racism —> which leads to police profiling —> which leads to disproportionate deaths of blacks by cops —> which leads to ‘anti-police rhetoric’ —> which leads to a climate of anger and fear in which innocent officers are brutally slain. So if it is ‘Because Obama’ it sure as hell is not for the reasons being given.

It’s an (Ooga Booga Ahead) ALL OUT WAR IN THE STREETS!

Actually, on the job fatalities for police nationwide are down around seven percent for the year. And most of those are for automobile accidents, not homicides. Yet even including those, more people have been killed by cops in the last month than there have been total number of police on the job deaths all year so far.

There is no all out war in the streets. There is no organized anti-police group working together to commit these murders. They are the work of lone individuals, each of whom have their own motivation, intention and story to tell. Meanwhile the police are an organized group, an increasingly militarized one, that act very much like an occupying force. If there is a war in the streets, all out, even, then it is a war in which it is our own police against our fellow citizens.

However, no such war exists. That sort of inflamatory speech is intended to do exactly what those making it accuse others of, which is an escalation of violence. The police are the ones who stand to benefit most from creating this sort of fear and distrust. It becomes the reasoning that will be given as police continue to further militarize and suspend citizens rights, as well as leeching more tax money and resources. As more military grade equipment becomes available to the growing ranks of soldiers cops you will hear it justified as being for the safety of the citizens and police. When in fact, it is for neither. It is really just building a greater defense between citizens and the ruling elite the police work to protect from us. Both cops and citizens are being used and manipulated by this rhetoric in order to serve the agenda of those who created this situation to begin with.

People should be just as outraged by the death of Deputy Goforth as they were at those killed by cops.

The police are paid by the people to serve and protect the people. They have taken an oath which is supposed to bring their standards of transparency and accountability to the law higher than the average citizens. While both kinds of killing are tragic, it is a far greater cause for alarm when the protectors become the killers.

Say your ten year old came home with a bruised cheek and a story about a slap fight they got into with their teacher. While you would still need to have a good long talk with your child about their act of violence, it was the teacher who was in the position of authority, and whose complicity in the incident is thus far greater.

It is the same situation here. Police are in a position of authority. They are paid by the public to protect the public. They are endowed with special police powers under the agreement that their conduct will be more reputable than the average citizens. So when a cop kills there is a far greater reason for public outcry. Cops belong to a public system. Cop killers do not.

banner cbn on fbI do not stand with any form of aggressive violence. I find it equally awful whenever a person is killed senselessly by another. Whether it is Deputy Darren H. Goforth or Sandra Bland, the non-defensive killing of one human by another (or group of others) is unacceptable. The reason that I do what I do here at CopBlock.org is to help rid the human race of its vestigial predilection for aggressive violence. And I believe that as long as institutionalized violence is allowed then there is little hope of seeing the violence that it instigates recede.

When you want to win a game you got to be willing to take on the biggest players. When it comes to to the aggressive violence borne of obsolete instinctual drives, there is no bigger player than the police state. I fight at that level, not because I do not care about other aggressive violence outside of it, but because it is a logical starting point for reducing the death toll brought about by the escalation that occurs under systemic brutality and killing.

The horrible truth is that cops are getting other cops killed by being killers themselves. It creates a climate of fear, anger, hatred and distrust that leads to these tragedies. And there are those at the top of the rainbow who like where this is going. The escalation creates a situation in which they are able to wrestle even more power from those of us stewing in their pots.

We are the gold in those pots and we have a choice of whether we get plucked by police middlemen for the benefit of those on top or if we wish to shine for our own meaning and purpose. Killers don’t shine. Don’t kill cops. Don’t celebrate their deaths. Don’t support killer cops. Do not celebrate the deaths they cause. Fight to end institutionalized killing and you will see an eventual de-escalation of these wholesale deaths on all sides. But if you let the cops and their lackeys in mainstream media use their fearmongering to drag you ideologically down to their level, we will all lose.

Hi, my name is Trevor. Thanks for reading!

    …spout of their cockamamie bullshit.

    Like you don’t, Hotch.

    The reason that I do what I do here at CopBlock.org is to help rid the human race of its vestigial predilection for aggressive violence.

    Do you think that using half truths, outright lies, complete bias and your own opinion is going to accomplish anything? Well it does accomplish something… It shows that you’re afraid of fair debate.

    When you want to win a game you got to be willing to take on the biggest players.

    Then play fairly, Hotch. (See above)

    First!

  • kpatrickryan

    Yeah it’s a wonder the monkeys can survive on the street, what with all the vitriol directed their way. America needs to follow the lead of Spain and ban all criticism of police. Because were it not for a few bad apples saying mean things about cops, everyone would love their local police.

    We also need to make certain cops continue to have a strong labor union. Labor unions suck in all other contexts, but they are great at keeping cops rolling in overtime and looking forward to retirement in their 40’s. Being as the world would implode without cops, this is a necessity.

    No, people should be MORE outraged at the death of Officer Goforth than the deaths of citizens at the hands of cops. People should riot over Goforth’s killing and that would give his brothers in arms more opportunities to kill citizens and avenge Goforth’s death.

    Like Father’s Day and Mother’s Day and Christmas, there should be a special day set aside for Americans to honor cops. A day when little old ladies can bake cookies and deliver them to the station house, a day when it’s OK for cops to accept ‘tips’ and ‘rewards’ from the public. April first would be a good day to set aside for this great day of honor.

    MOMMY! Hotch isn’t playing fair!

    Get your ball back and come inside, TOB.

    Look, if you expect people to take you seriously, then be serious and eliminate bias and lies from your fiction. Naturally you won’t. It’s probably too much work for you to go and do some research and most likely cuts into your one on one time with Mr. Bong.

    BTW… Got an email response from the Sanders campaign folks. You never spent one second with the candidate. So your story about interviewing him is a complete and utter lie. See? Research! It gets the truth out.

    ROFL If you replace “cops” with “Jews” in point #1, it reads just like Mein Kampf. :D

  • disqus_Oz92oxXWiZ

    Yup bad cops and most of them are horrible are geting killed and im gratefull to the heros that do the justice . the poLICE are loosing the war on hearts and minds. Its ther own doing thay bare the blame but cant face the truth about themselves. Its a sad state merica is in terrorized inside and out………cops mericas taliban

    While its noble that you believe you can bring change through writing, the only thing that will fix the human species is a change to the genome so that emotions are removed or in complete control. I’m not sure greed can exist without emotion, if it can then it must be removed as well. Keep up the good articles, I enjoy reading them.

  • Yousmellofignorance

    Unfortunately this will get worse before it gets anyway better. I would say these moving forward, you can see how the police spokesman be spinning with the magic of words. Everyone should take this as a educational moment. So if your unfortunately in a position that you have to talk with the press you don’t sound like a yard. Like some times you hear on here or pinac. IE: Shoot a Cop, Good Pig is a dead pig. Etc etc etc. It gets you no where and makes you sound like you should be locked up.

    But if you continue to uses word like domestic terrorist or terrorism when referring to some of the Bad Apple’s in law enforcement, especially when dealing with these 2 bad apples in Texas who murdered this vile human trash, who some may sided with the cops. This is not what we need cops to do, that’s what a jury to decide. No one knows what the black male who shot this sheriff deputy what was going through his mind he hasn’t spoke to police about anything. It doesn’t make it right but when you see videos like these two cops murder a guy its hard to argue. But words make the deference, I keep hearing cops fault for this and that and judges,Congress blah blah blah… Its our fault as a nation who don’t get active in voting or put expectations on your Congress man/woman. Well enough of my rant but WE need to wake up and take control.

    activity. It was not born in a vacuum. Nobody woke up one day and just
    randomly thought, “Hey, let’s criticize the cops for no reason
    whatsoever.”

    Cops are so used to never being responsible that they truly see themselves as innocent victims. Look at that baby burned buy cops. Each party of that event, the woman who lied to get a warrant, and the cops who did it, both blame the other entirely. Neither one was willing to face up to what they did. Dorner hunt, same thing. They saw no fault.
    They never have any sense of their own responsibility for public reactions to their actions or attitudes.

    There is also the issue of demonizing the opposition. Cops are hell bent on silencing any critic by accusing them of fostering anger toward cops. In cop minds, they are supposed to be free of criticism of any kind.

    Don’t forget Police Bill of Rights of various types. Things like actual rules limiting interrogation practices to avoid abuses they happily subject others to. Cops understand what to protect themselves from, because they are experts at abusive interrogation tactics.

  • ISIS is a hoax

    I went through dozens of copblock/watch videos from Houston anyone have any encounter with this ‘dead’ cop? wondering if he had it coming…. like the guys that killed Kelly Thomas deserve a bullet

  • Jeremy Derifield

    Outstanding write up, Josh. You’re a solid writer and this is very insightful.

  • corkie

    No, it doesn’t, Idiot.

  • YomammaaBigHo

    Officer Goforth is at this very moment having breakfast with Lucifer……where it’s VERY hot.

  • mobooz

    Yes, it does. :)

  • t

    It really infuriates you goofs that thousands and THOUSANDS will turn out to mourn the loss of this hero.
    The pouring out of support for the local police…the True showing of what people think about the police.

    Amazingly there was a 1000 plus person prayer walk in honor of that deputy. Funny thing…no looting. No bottles thrown. No cars set on fire. No shots fired.
    And no arrests required.

    Amazingly different when then decedent isn’t a criminal isn’t it?

  • Pat Riot

    What qualified Goforth as ha hero?

    Costume

  • JC

    Another fucked up mess of words by hotchkin. Did you plagiarize this article from LibPar? You have no idea as to what is going on out there do you. People who walk up on officers and shoot them are cowards. There is no excuse for it. Period.

  • t

    A life lived serving others..that cost him his life because the weak minded are easily led by calls for violence

  • Pat Riot

    In my opinion it’s a person’s very specific actions that qualify them for any accurate description. Not a job title.Certainly not someone else’s weak mind .

  • t

    Sorry that it infuriates you.
    Your life choices…to be selfish and not to serve others…to be against others freedom and interested only in your own…to openly wish violence on others….those are YOUR choices. That doesn’t make them honorable.
    This officer faced adversity and people trying to hurt him sole because of what he represented….and that is unique to law enforcement. You imbeciles quote lists that say logging is far more dangerous than being a police officer. True. But the tree isn’t intentionally trying to hurt you because you want to cut it down.

    And iIt nfuriates you that the hatred you feel because you hate the idea of accountability…that The love and outpouring from citizens for this fallen hero…just hurts you so

    Thanks for the support

  • deepelemblues

    I don’t stand for any aggressive violence but I’ll fall all over myself to justify aggressive violence against police. Because surely Deputy Goforth was responsible for the possible crimes of other cops against Shannon Miles.

    Collective punishment isn’t a feature of a sovereigntist society, is it?

  • Joshua H

    Thank you, Jeremy. :)

  • Shawn

    Well written! Thanks for this effort.

  • Shawn

    I’m sure you’re just trolling, but the Jews had not sworn an oath to and were not tasked with protecting and serving the public in Germany pre-WWII. They also had not killed thousands of German citizens including some murdered on camera without being held accountable. This is not discrimination. No one was born a cop.

    Now respond with something stupid so we can all dismiss you as a simple troll.

  • Shawn

    Was that the only line you read in the whole article? No one is trying to justify any of the violence. The author is trying to show one of the root causes of it and maybe help prevent it in the future. You wouldn’t want that now would you?

  • mobooz

    I think a German in 1935 would have argued otherwise. The vast majority of banks in Germany were owned by Jews, during a time when a wheelbarrow full of cash couldn’t buy a loaf of bread. Children died by the thousands from malnutrition and disease. It wasn’t long before all Jews were blamed for the sins of a few. Cue Kristallnacht.

    Yours is the same persecution complex that drove the Nazis. Why fight it when you can own it?

  • deepelemblues

    The inflammatory writing is extremely shortsighted if its goal is to prevent violence in the future. That was just the most inflammatory line.

    There’s little talk on this site about doing things that actually would rein in police; namely, getting power through the political process and then being in a position to make policy. Instead it’s confront the police and be angry about the police (not necessarily while confronting them). Of course when you heavily imply or outright say all the time that the system is impossible to gain control of then what choices are left but confrontation in the street. If it is so impossible to change police behavior or get into a position to do so you have to wonder what all these people running major cities are doing forcing police to pull back and provoking a reaction by police where they are pulling back even more.

    For example, a lot fewer people have been getting arrested or even detained for investigation in the street in NYC over the last year for exactly the kind of “victimless crimes” this site puts such an emphasis on. Of course the police have been less vigilant – or harassing, from your perspective – overall and not just for petty “victimless crimes” and this has led to a rise in violence in those cities. But that is beside the point here. The very thing that this site holds impossible is actually happening in various places around the USA.

  • corkie

    No, it doesn’t. Why would you make such a stupid claim?
