Why All Police Are Bad — for Society

I’m often questioned about my stance on police which is fine — anyone who knows me is aware that I don’t mind sharing my thoughts. Oftentimes during the conversation I’m accused of being a “cop hater” or told that not all cops are bad. I understand the reasoning most people have behind such ideas and how they come to these conclusions; nevertheless, those people are wrong. I’m not a cop hater, but all cops are bad, and here is why.

First, let me say that I don’t believe all police are bad people. Actually, I believe the majority of people in general to be good, and therefore would expect the same ratio in the police profession. However, I feel police are misled via their training and due to the requirements of their jobs, into bad decisions, which reflects upon them as people. I’m hopeful someday police will realize their jobs would be better (pay, safety, benefits, ect.) if provided by the free market instead of the one-size-fits-all system of policing mandated by the government.

My first and most important point when discussing the police is their funding. It seems every police officer has forgotten who pays their salary – people. There is a serious lack of customer service that is supposed to accompany the good or service being provided by police. When you’re pulled over by an officer, again who you pay for – yet are afraid of, police often demand your ID, ask where you’re going and search your persons and/or property. All the while, they demand your compliance (which, if not given, can be deadly) and claim to keep you safe.

In what other business or aspect of life can you talk down to, violate, search property and demand compliance and respect from people who help pay your salary? If a barista at Starbucks treated the customers the same way police do, they’d be fired. The customer would be apologized to and most likely compensated for their troubles. If Starbucks didn’t correct its behavior it would suffer the loss of customers because people wouldn’t pay someone to be treated in that manner.

Discussion from PoliceOne Facebook page

The second reason police are bad is because they lie – a lot – even to themselves. The police claim it is their job to keep you safe and they risk their lives doing this. This is a lie. First, police have never and will never keep anyone safe. It is not their legal responsibility and courts have ruled in favor of this. Second, most officers value their lives first and foremost while on duty (and I don’t blame them). A quick look at the comments on PoliceOne.com’s Facebook page will prove this. In the example to the right several officers approve of LEO’s who shot a man holding a water nozzle, claiming they’d do the same because getting home to their family is priority.

I understand why LEO’s make such comments; people want to return to their loved ones after work, regardless of their profession. This still doesn’t justify the lack of accountability for officers who break the law. The common defense for such police behavior is because they risk their lives for us – even though a police officer fails to make the ten most dangerous jobs list and the police always carry guns, unlike most people they encounter. Yet, police don’t realize how it’s their employer (lawmakers) who put them in these situations.

An officer’s daily duties require them to violate the rights of others, without question, on a repeated basis (see video – 2min in). Police routinely fine or jail, at taxpayer expense, people whose crimes lack an actual victim. Whether it be for driving without a license, disorderly conduct or illegal drugs, police are the ones enforcing such laws. More surprisingly is it seems they do so only because they are told to, and believe such violations are acceptable to keep others safe (this doesn’t even include officers who blatantly and knowingly abuse their power).

I’ve asked several officers, in light of their willingness to arrest me for putting substances into my body (like marijuana), whether they would also arrest me if lawmakers (against my wishes) made ketchup illegal too. To my surprise, most say yes (2min 6sec into video) while others tell me how silly an example it is because lawmakers would never make ketchup illegal. Police don’t understand that to others, dictating what substance (heroin, acid, or  cigarettes) they can or can not put into their bodies is just as silly as banning ketchup. Not to mention the fact that millions are forced to pay, via taxes, for the expenses incurred to jail these offenders – offenders of their own bodies, I guess. This is something most wouldn’t voluntarily pay for. This is to say nothing of the irony behind being arrested by police, who you pay for, to arrest you for putting something into your own body. Who would voluntarily hire some to arrest him or herself for an act that hasn’t harmed anyone but you, in their mind only?

Still millions of people do and the police don’t even show an appreciation towards them. I’ve gotten birthday gifts, discounts on merchandise, and other things from stores I’ve voluntarily given business to. I’ve never received so much as a thank you from a police officer; instead I’ve witnessed them prey on people simply trying to live their lives. I’ve had police intimidate and cage me for doing nothing more than filming and asking questions.

It’s for these reasons I find that all police are in fact bad for society. I realize there are cases where an officer has gone above and beyond the call of duty, but there are millions of non-LEOs that have too. I tip my hat to all that go out of their way for their fellow man. The fact is until one (or several at one time) truly brave officer(s) break the ranks and forms their own private protection agency, the people will never truly be protected.

Active LEOs should be dreaming of the day where government policing is replaced with individuals and businesses hiring their own protection, and the police business is subject to the values of the free market, where those who provide a service others demand thrive and those who conduct business poorly fail. Those will be the days in which an officer’s time is spent catching people who actually commit crimes against other people and businesses, thus making the  job of protection less dangerous, less stressful, more direct and an overall good to society.

Until then we’ll be stuck fighting over things like what should be illegal, who has the right search your property, and who can carry a gun. This is slave-on-slave violence at its best. 300 million people will never agree on how to police as a whole thus people should be free to hire those they feel can protect and provide them with the service they need. Or protect themselves as they see fit.. but this is where you tell me that private police and people protecting themselves would make our world chaotic. Even though a massive police state is really what’s chaotic.

    The cop in the comments about the water nozzle says- ” Its BS that the general public expects officers to get shot at before they can shoot back”. Thats the rules of engagement for our soldiers in the military, and theyre in an actual combat situation. Cops need to chill the f*ck out! More civilians are shot at everyday than police. The difference is, when a cop gets shot at, the media gets ahold of it and publicizes it.

    Cops are not the only one who believe that that drugs should be illegal. Let’s say that a man gets high on PCP and cuts his face off with a shard of glass (This did happen, however I cannot find the link for the article as I read it a few years ago). He goes to the hospital. In order to disinfect him he needs to be dipped into a vat of iodine, he needs to have drugs to attempt to counteract the effects of the PCP, and he needs multiple skin grafts. He takes up a bed in a hospital for a few months. He takes up a doctor’s time (which could have been spent helping someone who didn’t do something harmful to themselves like a victim of a car accident, someone having a heart attack, etc) along with the time of a few nurses. And who do you think pays for it? The PCP addict (or user or whatever you want to call them) probably doesn’t have the money to pay for his own medical expenses. So guess who pays for it? The government does. It really pisses me off this sort of thing happens. I’m fine with helping people pay for their healthcare unless they did something to themselves that was illegal or stupid.

  • Ogre

    “This is slave-on-slave violence at its best.” Very well-said!

    @Anon — Sure, that’s a problem — the solution is to stop having government pay for free medicine and let people have the freedom to decide who they want to treat without force. I know, I’m dreaming.

  • Ademo Freeman

    @Ogre – Thanks

    @Anon – I agree with Orge but would like to add that if there wasn’t a war on drugs, people wouldn’t be taxes as much. Which they could then use that money for healthcare, if they feel they need it. If they don’t have healthcare maybe someone will help maybe they won’t.. it depends on the situation. If you’re an addict, who keeps messing up, I doubt you’ll receive much assistance. That’s not my problem. With freedom comes responsibility.

  • Chris

    “And who do you think pays for it?”

    The easy answer to this argument is to end the welfare state. If people had to pay for the consequences of their poor decisions, they would make fewer poor decisions. Instead, we’ve breed a nation sheep, dependent upon the state.

  • Really great article. Very humanizing. I’m always trying to explain to people that I don’t dislike cops as people. I just dislike their jobs. Very well said.

  • Tanya

    @Anon – What constitutes “stupid?” From your comment I can assume if someone did anything stupid, like blow up some fireworks in their face, you are against the gov’t system paying their medical bills – or an elderly lady who lets her gas run too long before lighting the pilot and sets herself on fire or burns down her house. Is that stupid or an accident? If you say these acts were stupid,then you think these people should not have assistance in paying for their predicament. I may agree, however, since this is the system we currently have these people are entitled to benefits if they qualify for the assistance. If I pay into a program (i.e. food stamps) via my income taxes, then I would surely apply for the benefit if I found myself in a situation where I qualify – if only to get some of my (tax) money back.
    That aside, if we can agree on the stupid part, then the “illegal” part would be separate. You said if someone did something illegal to lead to the need of medical assistance you wouldn’t want to pay either. I assume you mean your example of a PCP user slicing his face off with with glass because he is messed up. Well, couldn’t somebody intoxicated by alcohol also do something similar? And since alcohol is not illegal, then you’d be okay to help that person in very similar circumstances? Or can we agree that both acts were equally stupid as to let oneself become so out of it that they could end up seriously harming themself? If that is so, then all acts would be judged on if they were stupid and not necessarily illegal. So, I guess my point is that drugs should not be illegal because you cannot control if people are stupid – or even define “stupid” in an effort to exclude assistance. People should be responsible for their own actions and trusted to monitor their own tolerance to substances. If you or a lawmaker decides that people cannot be trusted to make decisions for themselves then we have a nanny state. I don’t need uncle Sam telling me what I can or cannot put into my own body anymore than you would allow your mommy to tell you if you can drink alcohol or take tylenol.

    Jake’s comment reminds me of this article at Radley’s place…
    …in particular, this bit:

    “A couple of years ago after I’d given a speech on this issue, a retired military officer and former instructor at West Point specifically asked me to stop using the term ‘militarization,’ because he thought comparing SWAT teams to the military reflected poorly on the military.”

  • “I’ve asked several officers, in light of their willingness to arrest me for putting substances into my body (like marijuana), whether they would also arrest me if lawmakers (against my wishes) made ketchup illegal too. To my surprise, most say yes…”

    Milgram is alive and well in the police caste, and will be as long as police aren’t held accountable for their immoral actions.

    Everyone should ask themselves: would you personally get in your car, chase your neighbor, stop him under threat of force, and under threat of force and kidnapping, demand money from him, because he was driving faster than you prefer down your street? Would you personally kick in your neighbor’s door, put a gun to his head, terrorize his family, and kidnap him because you saw him selling some dope?

    Of course you wouldn’t. No rational person would.

    On the other hand, if you stumbled upon a rape or murder in progress, would you attempt to stop it?

    Every rational person would do whatever they could to stop it.

    That’s not how the vast majority of cops behave. They’ve been told what to do, their jobs have been sanctified by law-writers, and that’s good enough for them.

    Heil Milgram!

  • great great piece one of my all time favorites.

    @ anonymous the problem you have there isn’t with the pcp guy its with the government involved with healthcare. not to mention the fact that it doesn’t matter if you are high or sober you still have to be responsible for your actions. that along with many other things are what keep the average person from doing most of the drugs that are currently illegal

    if you ask everyone you see one day the main reason why they don’t do drugs like crack, pcp. heroine .ext. the fact that it is illegal would be at the bottom of the list. most people don’t wanna be a crack head.

  • charley hardman

    “Actually, I believe the majority of people in general to be good, and therefore would expect the same ratio in the police profession.”

    then you’re about as logical as a rhubarb. one of the primary reasons for “cop” sociopathy is the self-selection of sociopaths into the occupation. stop worshiping them with your apologies. of course “cops” are horrible people. were they not, they wouldn’t have walked in and asked for an application to lord it over others as a job, using wealth stolen from the victims, under a monopoly nearly guaranteeing they’re untouchable despite horrid behavior.

    tell ya what: get kidnapped and held hostage by these goons and resist throughout. you’ll see that your “same ratio” theory is absolute drivel. four words for you, ademo “freeman”: milgram experiment. nuremberg defense.

    I was just out on my front porch smoking a cigarette, watching a scene involving a police cruiser with flashing lights parked behind someone he had pulled over. After a few minutes he got out and approached her window and I heard him inform her that her license was suspended, and that he had to arrest her. She started panicking, asking him if she could call someone to come get her car, or if she could possibly drive it to her house right down the street, because she absolutely could not afford towing and impound fees because she was pregnant and (I didn’t hear the rest, but I imagine it’s probably because she’s paycheck to paycheck like most Americans these days.)

    No dice, have to tow it. We offered to let her park it in our yard, or let him park it in our yard, or WE would park it in our yard. No dice, have to tow it.

    All because of a) a burnt out headlight being the reason for the stop, and b) “Papers, please. Hrm…. Mmmhrm… Ah, your papers are out of order. Come with me, bitte.”

    Out of curiosity, Anonymous, what do you think is stopping people from getting high on PCP and cutting their faces up right now? By your own admission, this has already happened at least once under the current regime of drug criminalization.

    The drug trade is alive and well despite the fact that drugs are “illegal.” In fact, to the best of my knowledge, drug use hasn’t decreased significantly despite the best efforts of cops and “tough on crime” politicians and prosecutors to stamp it out. Of course, if you have any evidence to the contrary, feel free to present it.

  • A J


    Speaking of drivel…

    You’re obviously basing your ignorant theory on neither logic nor fact, but on mere systematized hatred. You hate the government, so you illogically decide to hate those who are trying to make this world a decent place under that government. Yes, there are bad cops: cops with serious authority problems, cops who don’t know the laws they swear to protect, cops who don’t care about the people. And I’m sorry if that’s the only experience of police officers that you’ve had. But, I can say from experience, that most cops are none of those. They become cops because they want to make their country/state/county a safer place. As much as you (or others) go on and on about how our government is corrupt, blah blah blah (which I agree with), you’re doing nothing to actually protect people… but they are.

    That being said, I agree with most of what Mr. Freeman said.

  • “No dice, have to tow it.”

    Asset forfeiture and all that which has become routine highway robbery.

  • “…you’re doing nothing to actually protect people…”

    Hey AJ, how could you possibly know that?

  • QUOTE:
    First, let me say that I don’t believe all police are bad people. Actually, I believe the majority of people in general to be good, and therefore would expect the same ratio in the police profession.

    I’d like to respectfully disagree with you on this one point.

    First in the past 10 to 15 years there have been several well written articles that have appeared in very respectable law journals all authored by men and women with very impressive credentials and resumes. From former State Supreme Court Justices to very successful and famous defense lawyers.

    All agree that police lie far too often in court, on reports and more or less any other time they feel like it.

    One such article that appeared a few years back, written by a Professor from Georgetown Law addressed what he called the psychology of courtroom lies. Who lies and why.

    He found during his research that cops lie between 32% and 38% of the time in court, while the general public lies around 15% to 21% of the time. He felt there were many reasons for this, not just a single simple answer. Those reasons ranged from the knowledge that courts rarely if ever hold officers in contempt or punish them criminally for perjury. To some jurisdictions that punished cops for failing to recall details of a case during court.

    Also he interviewed a psychologist who raised the issue that certain occupations attracted certain types of personalities. Such as fighter pilots and astronauts attract certain types of personalities that hold mental focus well under stress and score much higher than the general public on timed tests that increase in difficulty.

    Law enforcement was one occupation that attracted personality types with borderline narcissistic personality disorders. People who existed in a boundary between healthy narcissism and narcissism as a full blown disorder. Most of them saw themselves as special, entitled, believing one should have whatever one wants, or achieving a stated goal regardless of the feelings of others or the means to achieve it. And inflating oneself while putting others down.

    One such quote fits this description very well.

    “It is said that power corrupts, but actually it’s more true that power attracts the corruptible. The sane are usually attracted by other things than power.”

  • Jenn

    @John P – would it be possible for you to give me a link to that article/study or give me the name of authors? I am fascinated by that information. Also, it gives me ammo.

  • Emily

    It’s really common in Brazil for a street of houses to hire a security guard for the whole block, who carries a gun and looks out for the homeowners, going so much as to open their gates for them, and follow them on a motorcycle down their road to their gates. They stay quiet unless they are needed, and they are VERY polite. I don’t see why cops couldn’t be the same.

  • Guy Fawkes


    PCP is already illegal, it looks like it didn’t stop that person from getting it. As for health care costs, that issue is more complicated than a lot of people on either side make it out to be. I don’t want to pay for other people health care. On the other hand, if some uninsured person gets drug resistant TB and starts coughing and infecting everyone he comes in contact with, yeah, I’d like to have the state take care of that, for my own welfare. Even with insurance, the idea of spending months in an isolation ward from catching TB from some uninsured person is very unappealing to me.

    There was a former Marine and current LEO who posted on the PoliceOne.com forums with respect to this article that libertarianism is impractical, because the “concept ignores reality, which is, left to it’s own devices, the meek will not inherit the earth but will be brutally subjugated by the strong, armed and nasty.” Except that he and the state he works for are EXACTLY that.

    You, are a moron. The reason police officers aren’t always in such a good mood when you encounter them is because of all the bullshit they deal with on a daily basis. How dare you disgrace the men and women who keep our streets safe by dealing with the people that you would shit yourself if ever approached you in a dark parking garage at night? You have literally no training in law enforcement, let alone background, and could not possible offer a valid viewpoint on the job of a police officer. You’re the first one to criticize the police for the job they do, yet who do you call when you need help? Who do you call when you get in an accident? How about when you’re assaulted? Robbed? Raped? The police. Next time your mugged by a street gang you should walk over to their house, knock on their door and deal with the problem yourself. Ask for your stuff back, since the police are a worthless organization.

    Anyone that starts a discussion by calling someone a name like you did “moron” Is not worth my time to actually give you a response back as to why the police are useless. You pretty much made our point in your last sentence “the police are a worthless organization.” Try rewriting your post as a grown up or adult that wants to have a real discussion and I promise you will get a lot better reactions and comments responding to what you say than if you just come around as “anonymous” calling people names.

    I think your assessment is 100% right. However, your solutions to these problems are ludicrous. The Free Market may solve many of the problems you outlined here, but it would create so many more, that it would be no better of a solution than the system you’re decrying. I think this is a case of someone recognizing an obvious problem and naively ascribing a solution that better fits their limited political ideology.

    Police in Virginia treat the disabled, nonchristians, gays, and elderly like they are all criminals. There are no strait jackets in Virginia, only rednecks, false christians, and handcuffs. Thanks to Virginia i struggle to retain my beliefs, with ratining my sanity, with depression, with suicidal thoughts. I have been getting help, but the false christians only care about money and not about love, the police use handcuffs on disabled people. They are “criminals with badges” as one disabled person puts it! The ploice should be jailed for speeding! So should my neocon ex! Edward Fahner should be lectured on how to treat any girl who loves him and fined for speeding. Not a cop, but he thinks he has their power and claims to be of Christ. Nonsense! He knows nothing of Christ! My father has more power then him and all cops, but he has no authority of corrupt sexist evil judges. damn Virginia and its crapy healthcare system!

    I have worked in Houston 15 years 7 night’s a week without getting to lengthy police are more dangerous then homeless,drunks,gangmembers because unlike all of those people you can’t choose to avoid police. They intentionally attempt to blow situations out of proportion so they can use all the awesome training and cool gear they have accumulated through there life in the field. There is handsdown no greater risk to my life or my ability to provide for my family ormy disabled mother than the police themselves. Another terrible thing that I don’t like is they group up in the rich areas all night herassing the people they know aren’t a danger and they keep thereselves out of the ghetto where the real danger is.every now and then u see them convoy through(once a week) and god help you if they take a quarter second look at you and decide to target you. It doesn’t matter if your working it doesn’t matter if your friendly you will display signs of nervousness when they pull up on you fast and jump out and circle you with there hands on there guns and guess what the fact that made you nervouse is all it takes for them to through u in the back of the car and interrogate the shit out of you for a hour. There technique is self perpetuating. This isn’t 1 experience, this is common practiceit happens to me it happens to my workers and I can’t stand to say it but I know about 70% sure that out of everyway I could die I will most certainly be killed by some overzealous police officer. I’m 30yrs old and I want to see crime stopped but I can’t even report crime to them because they are so paranoid they think everything is a trick. 1 time a woman was screaming bloody murder. And I ignored it because I can’t get caught up in other people’s trouble but they kept screaming so I called police, flagged then down when they drove through and started to leave.I said I’m the 1 that called it in and tgeres a woman’s screams coming from over there. The officer listens closely and says that’s a cat. (Typical half hearted police effort) I say no get out of your car and go over there so she does and opens door of a closed business and authoritatively demands I assist with no gun out she makes me enter business with her and the female scream was a man tied to the roof by burglars losing consciousness I helped find a ladder and relieve the cutting pressure of the wire he was wrapped and hung from because the officer in typical fashion could give a crap less.thankfully the fire dept came soon and helped to get him down thankfully the criminals were gone already. I realize I have written a lot. I could go on all day so I will stop now and I won’t be replying to any posts relating to this subject as I don’t usually share the details of my experience with police in open forum.I realizehow incredibly hard it is on the human psychi to be a police officer but a ex cop told me something 1 time that I think more officers should take to heart. Once you have reached the point in your career that you think everybody is upto nogood its your duty to change profession because your officially doing more damage then good, please think about that and god be with you out there.

    Yes the free market will really, truly make individuals who are on power trips far more responsible. The same free market that let banks run wild, and served no punishment for those responsible for the collapse. How do you expect or even fathom the idea that something like a free market which encourages to screw people over (workers) in the name of saving money and higher profits so that the greed machine aka wall street and be kept plump and satisfied. Look at our prisions that is already being handled in the free market, and why are so many people being arrested today, why is the war on drugs funded so well? Due to the fact its now profitable to put people behind bars, empty cells means empty pockets, no sir your idea of a free market police service is ludicrous. So you would allow a business such as one that owns prisions to go along and arrest people or police them, yeah no conflict of intrest at all. That being said I dislike cops they are as far as I am concerned the devil incarnated, but a free market police state is not the way to solve the problem of a police state. It is to abide by the constitution and honor the words written, life liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

    I woke on day to realize that what you say is so true. My son drove his rare Chev LUV up the hill two blocks. He does this each 3 or 4 months just so it does not sit for years. This time it caught fire. Neighbor called 911. Cops arrived (as well as fire department). Cops began questioning him. Then accusing him of having heroine. He was upset because of the fire and then could not keep up with their questioning so he decided to “remain silent” and walk home. One cop jumped on him, put him in a strangle hold and he felt himself pasisng out. Cops then had medics give him shots, put him on gurney and took him to a hospital! Did blood tests which were all negative for whatever, released him from hospital some 14 hrs later. Now he has a $3,400 hospital bill for something he did not need or want. Also the cop report says he was picked up downtown when he was not downtown! His car was towed from the hill to 5 miles away and it cost $500 to get it back. Now that is not all. One month later he is in his driveway at midnight looking at his vehicle when a canine runs up to him growling and a cop yells “Hands up!” followed immediately TZZZZZ…zz.z.zz.z.z.! Yep! He was tased…. two times! taken to jail and he didn’t even know why. After released three days later and reading the police report he finds that the officer thought he was a suspect they were tracking in the neighborhood and that susspect suspoedly had heroine on him. Yes, he has an attorney but no wrong doing will ever be found.

    Police are dangerous creatures. I am a 28 year old white male. I have been arrest 4 times in my adult life starting when I was 20, my first arrest was underage possession of alcohol and one marijuana joint. I was hand cuffed forced to my knees while they finished searching my car. I was imprisoned for two days. After court I was fined $1500, 40 hours of community service. Hard to do when your 20, work all the time and still can’t pay rent. Then when I was 24 I was arrested for a DUI. I blew a .095. I am 6`3 250 pounds. I am not the size of a average male, so how can you make me live by that rule of .08. The third time I was pulled over for not wearing my seat belt. First I was wearing said belt. Second who’s business is it to tell me to wear my seat belt. The officer then said he smelled marijuana. He asked to search me and my truck and I said no. So he handcuffs me for his safety while the dog unit came and had a dog search me and my truck. They then found a quart ounce in my truck. I had no rights, you say no they can’t search but can some how search with a dog. Doesn’t make sense its still a search I refused. Lost my government job working on water lines for the city. Anyways the fourth time was another DUI. I blew a .092. I’m still paying off all the fines and doing DUI school and taking drug and alcohol class like I’m someone with a problem. I do believe that we need police to some degree. We do not need patrol officers. We do not need police pulling people over. Only need them to respond to emergencies. Most laws like seat belt laws and DUI laws are made because of insurance companies lobbying to lawmakers. Any way insurance can not pay they will do.

    You forgot the main reason why all cops are worthless. Well, you mentioned stuff along the lines but…all cops are bastards for the simple fact they have taken an oath on the thin blue line to protect, back up, and stick together though anything. So when one cop kills an innocent person, they all lash out at the people saying the cop was wrong to make him seem right. Happens, literally, ever fucking time.

  • Domonic

    This website is the biggest joke I have ever seen in my entire life. You dog police officers and think you know what we do everyday. You don’t have a clue. Half of the people on this site that comment are shit bags anyway that’s why they don’t like police, because there pissed they don’t get to do whatever they want without consequence. And as much as we are bashed, who’s the first person they call when their in trouble and need somebody there to help them? If it were me in a situation and somebody pointed anyhing at me that looked remotely like a firearm, there is no question I would deploy my firearm. And I garuntee if you ask any squared away knowledgable police officer what they would do in that situation they would say the same thing. It’s easy to Monday morning quarterback a police officer when you have all the facts and already know the outcome. Try being in the situation and tell me it’s easy. It blows my mind the disrespect police officers get everyday. And if you think for one second something that looks like a hose nozzle couldn’t be a firearm, try taking your un-educated ass to a website that shows you the different things people make into a gun. It’s easy to hate police when your a desk jockey.

  • toomanygrandkids

    There are plenty of ppl who love corrupt cops. When I was in the 10th grade and living in the projects, it was normal 2 see squad cars parked in the back of a unit. He wasn’t there b/c of any crime tho. He was inside the unit banging the female who lived there. Project dwellers cry police brutality and racism at the drop of a hat. But what is it called when black officers have sex with black females who, by the way, allow it. Those females would have sex w/ a cop to get rid of a parking ticket. I could say those officers were definitely wrong, but they are also men. Its natural for ANY MAN 2 get between a pair of legs. But its also natural for a whore to offer sex for money or favors. Hell, some of these females were carrying on affairs with some of these married officer. The majority of them just wanted to get laid.

  • B.

    To everyone saying “Fuck the PoPo” and whatever, let me remind you that you almost never hear stories about all the good we do because, well, that would be boring news now wouldn’t it? It’s never news when you’re doing your job– only when someone thinks you aren’t. A video was once taken of a friend of mine arresting an old woman in a parking lot and people instantly started whining “police brutality!”, but for some reason they all seemed to disregard the fact that the same old woman had a knife in her hands and was threatening people with it in addition to refusing to put the weapon down when police asked her to. Yet when the video was uploaded, it was taken so far away that it was hard to see the knife (turn the volume up though, and you could clearly hear the old woman saying “I’ll cut you.” and “I’m gonna kill you.”) But of course, all most people saw was an old woman being “harassed” by police.

    And of course, it’s all “Fuck the police this” and “Fuck the police that” until you need us. A guy in my neighborhood regularly used to talk about how much he hated the fuzz, right in front of me, at neighborhood/group gatherings and functions (unfortunately, we were friends with the same people). He seemed to get a special sort of joy out of insulting me. Then one night he had some relatives visiting, and two of them got so drunk they started fighting each other and breaking things around his house. I heard the noise while on my way home from work, and so I stopped and went over to investigate. I broke up the fight and got them calmed down, and then I drove them to a motel for the night. My neighbor never thanked me, but I have noticed that he doesn’t insult me so much anymore. So yeah, you may hate us, but you need us. And there ARE plenty of good ones of us out there.

    To all the worthless PIGS posting on this page..
    Number one..you are NOT welcome here.
    Number two..We cannot affcrd your ridiculous salaries, OUTRAGEOUS pensions, or the emotional and financial damage you inflict on people for doing nothing more than minding their own business.
    You say we need you? Where are all the videos of you guys actually helping people? Gee, somone must have hidden them. I have NEVER called 911 in my life, because I know I’m more likely to get Tazed, kidnapped, fined and thrown in a cage then actually helped.
    You wonder why people hate you? IMAGE. You have been branded as mindless, robotic thugs, no better than any gang member, because thgat’s how people percieve you, and you have no one to blame but yourselves.
    You say your job is dangerous? Lemme see, you have armor, enough firepower to stop a Rhino on PCP, Tanks, APC’s, and a small army to back you up. Yea. Tell me another one.
    You a**holes are revenue collectors, nothing more. Get a real job.

  • I have another example of a LEO following orders rather than the law. I visited my county courthouse in Laramie County, WY specifically to ask the deputy minding the metal detector if I could record video inside. He said no cameras are allowed passed him where the courtrooms are located. I asked him if that’s policy. He replied that he won’t stop me from recording unless he’s told to stop me by a superior LEO or a COUNTY OFFICIAL. I left it at that.

    The issue raised by the “no cameras upstairs” policy is that the County Clerk is located upstairs. How can I photograph documents I want to inspect? I once inspected the physical copy of my divorce file without purchasing a copy in that office. I will visit them next week and ask that question.

    So he never called you. You heard some noise and decided to be that nosy neighbor and you went over there voluntarily. Hate to bust your bubble but he DID NOT need you. You just decide that he needed you and went over their unwelcome. WOW. You police officers really have a weird way of thinking. Get off your high horse and get a real job or do some REAL police work. How many murders have you prevented? How many people have you TRULY protected? Sorry but you are not doing God’s work like most officer’s say and think. There’s a reason why there is more negative thoughts towards police. If you can’t see it then you should retire from life. It’s not a coincidence it’s a fact. Please do something better with your life . God will judge.

  • joshua

    So glad I found fellow humans and not beast. You officers posting here should realize that many of us here have never done anything and have the evidence to back that up. Yet due to your quotas placed on you by the prison corporations you often times revert to in trapping the innocent. Then you have the audacity in the judicial system to ask us to lie with a plea bargain otherwise we get much worse punishment. And there’s no dropping the case for prosecutors oh no that mean if we don’t lie to guilt then we go to jail innocent. Hundreds of thousands are in prison now due to this modus operandi. Face facts and those are men and women in military uniform don’t scare innocent people and neither do terrorist but when a cop shows up we all man woman and child cringe.

  • Dave Myers

    Cops are recruited and trained with specific psychological problems in mind. You don’t want a cop that is on the side of the people, that’s bad business. You want a order following mindless zombie with a gun that will violate a person’s rights and create more revenue for their department. When there is no one to police the police they do whatever they want and have the entire department to watch their backs. Cops are evil, they are a group of mentally ill, angry, homicidal thugs with a god complex. Tell a cop that they don’t have the “authority” to do something and watch the rage boil, they all think they “are” the justice system and whatever they say is fact. These sick people need to be evaluated by professionals of an independent source and fire the ones that are a danger to society, which is most of them. We don’t need you, we are more than capable of protecting ourselves, the trouble is protecting ourselves from you.

    The only thing cops are good for is filling out paperwork. If there’s already been a car accident, or a murder, or a rape, or anything for that matter, what the fuck are cops going to do? They weren’t there to prevent it, and to be honest they’ll never be able to be. They just get to show up afterwards, take some names, fill out some paperwork, accuse us of possessing drugs and cut out. Job well done. To serve and protect, my ass.

  • william

    That very thing happens way too often, i feel for the few actually decent police officers but there are simply not enough of them; which I think is the reason you almost never see or hear from them. We need police, we just need to do a better job of hiring. Like in all or any other job in the world not any one can do it. Yet any one who can pass a drug screening and a fairly simple assessment test can legally ruin some ones day; if not thier life and simply say they were ”just doing my job”. There should be more of a bussiness attitude brought to the hiring process, instead of the open military policy that atleast to me seems to be the set standard. Its a shame bc thier job is so important to all of us and carries alot more wieght than most others (except maybe wall street or banks, although thats for a different blog) and yet most any asshole can join somehow. It also doesnt help that no one knows thier own rights. Police dont learn them bc there is no reason to bc there is next to no repocutions for their actions unless just outrageously terrible and caught on tape. Which is what allows them to police themselves and helps lend to the gang or pack mentality. Just my two cents, get better at hiring and learn about your local sheriffs, your peers put them there; probably doesnt truely matter but still cant hurt.

    Ps the only reason people take such polar extremes to this subject is bc it is very important and serious yet never seems to get the time or light it truely deserves. Sorry for the length.

  • william

    In what other aspect of life can you use a blanket expression like ” The reason police officers aren’t always in such a good mood when you encounter them is because of all the bullshit they deal with on a daily basis.”. That is ALLWAYS the fall-back excuss for being a completly terrible person to whom ever you feel like lashing out on. We all as human beings have bad days, its true your jobs have serious hassards but you chose this profession to be yours and im pretty sure the oath taken doesnt include the phrase ”if I have a bad shift I swear to treat every one that day as a criminal and assume them to be guilty as soon as I see him/her”. Although I have never seen the oath you guys and ladies take so what do I know.

  • william

    Sir I truely, truely hope you are not really connected to any type of law enforcment. Bc if internet post and comments affect you the way it seems to, how in the world can yoh honor and up hold the law in the way tax paying americans deserve it be? From the anger and hate you show to internet shit-talkers; one could only imagine you in a high stress or demanding situation. If you unravel like this in everyday life we are all in trouble I fear…

  • NoOneIsAboveTheLaw

    I’m starting to think America is turning into Mexico just because
    police officers get a little taste of power. Whether you’re Tyra Banks,
    George Bush, Hillary Clinton for all we care. You DON’T HAVE THE RIGHTS
    TO ABUSE your rights. Well you do, but unlink police officers. The
    American citizens don’t coward behind the badge and say “We’re citizens
    so we’re ganna get away with it.”

    Is that the only excuse cops
    have now a days? You do know sooner or later, the Wall Street Journal or
    some other big cooperation is going to create a “Union” and basically
    force the government to shut down all police facilities. Just because you’re powered by the government, doesn’t mean you’re above the government.
    And just because you’re a cop, doesn’t mean you know all the laws. I
    find it funny. I have a brother who’s basically a vegetable at
    understanding the laws. And what I find most funny is, he’s BECOMING a
    COP. He thinks he knows so much. Bragging that he’s an A student yet
    when someone asks him a question, he goes and looks at his book. Hmmm,
    I’m guessing you know your rights very well don’t you brother? And when
    he can’t find the answers, he says “Oh, it’s no in the book.” About 90%
    of questions that people ask him, he can’t answer it himself. I’m glad
    I’m not stupid becoming a cop. Cops are overlooked because they’re
    pathetically stupid. Call me stupid over the internet all you want. In
    reality, sooner or later. Cops are going to be no more. This trend of
    corruption upon law enforcers are going to be ruined and people who are
    cops will basically and FINALLY get their head pulled outta their ass.

  • Neutral Guy

    I am not a “PIG” nor am I on anybody’s side but police are agents of the state. This means when being talked to by an officer most of your rights leave because agents of the state not only have to protect you but everybody. Surprise you guys did not know that cause you all seem so knowledgeable when it comes to law. Now I leave in Milwaukee, WI and most of the people I know do not appreciate the police and are scared of them. I am not scared of the police at all. Even after the stuff I have seen on the media I keep my composure when pulled over. I agree with the cops and dont make a fuss and you know what they do? Let me go. It seems you people would rather have Marshall Law instead a police system. By the way Marshall Law is when the national guard of your state takes control of your state and you do whatever they tell you or it is lights out. I understand there are some cops who misuse there ways as a cop but I bet there are more good cops than bad cops. Want to know how I figure? Out of 300 million people hundreds maybe thousands maybe feel this way.

    And the only danger any pig will protect us from is a donut. (Most of the cops in Ventura, California are wife beaters and pedophiles.)

  • AugustineThomas

    A lot of people deal with bs on a regular basis. That doesn’t give them the right to murder innocent people like scumbag pigs do!

    You’re a scumbag pig and you’d be better off worrying about repenting and avoiding spending your eternity in Hell than other peoples’ problems.

  • AugustineThomas

    Pigs never protect anyone. It is not their duty to protect me and they never have and never will.
    You sure seem like you’re a pig’s wife or something. No one else would be happy to bring the plague of scumbag, evil, corrupt police onto themselves.

  • AugustineThomas

    You’re full of nonsense. You’re just the type of brainwashed slave they love who completely ignores all their evil and pretends that all people in society would spontaneously turn into murderous thugs if it weren’t for murderous pigs to intimidate and harass them.
    Probably more than half the country hates your evil pig heroes, we just have a lot of problems and the police are well entrenched. They have a lot of corrupt judges and other government agents on their side to insure that they keep harassing, beating and murdering people, while extracting protection money, aka taxes from them.

  • AugustineThomas

    Don’t try to make this about Christianity. Most cops look down on Christianity and hate Christians because Christians don’t like their police state antics. When most cops were Christian, they had a real sense of their mission and didn’t spend their time looking for reasons to harass, beat and murder innocent people.

  • AugustineThomas

    Police are never there unfortunately. As a rule, they show up too late to stop the crime and are more likely to create their own crimes than to stop any.

    You need to calm down man. I’ve seen multiple comments from you and they all have you calling people a “scumbag pig”. And you believe in hell? I thought religious people were supposed to be nice.

    You’ve got to be a cop. Hey! Here’s a fun fact! The average IQ of police officer’s in America is 80! That means the average cop has borderline mental disabilities! :D

  • Karen

    I don’t think it’s a coincidence that every time I read a post that happens to be from a cop I hear Officer Farva (from Super Troopers). Half the time, I don’t even know it’s from a cop until later on in the post! So, I think it’s because of the intelligence level of police officers. Cops & boot-lickers, alike.
    Why have I not once heard an intelligent comment from a police officer or boot-licker?

  • Karen

    I am NOT pro-cop. But, that doesn’t mean I think people should get away with crimes. You knew it was illegal to do what you were doing & you aren’t making anyone else look good by complaining that you “didn’t get away with it”.
    I am more for the innocent civilians who are harasses by the police for doing something that is within their rights. For example, I was pulled over in Chicago for “being white in a black neighborhood”. Yes, those words came straight out of the officer’s mouth when I asked why I was being pulled over. And for the people who are stopped for carrying a gun or exercising their rights. If nothing illegal occurred, then there is no reason to detain someone.
    Anyway, I suggest that you get a medical marijuana license & if you are going to drink, don’t drive. And educate yourself on your rights & the laws in your city & state. They cannot detain you just to get a police dog. That is considered illegal. But, you have to know exactly what to say. And you must be polite while doing so. It also helps if you don’t commit any traffic violations, so they do not have a legal right to pull you over. And record the entire interaction, from beginning to end.

  • Karen

    Bull. Here is a perfect example of the news reporting on a cop who was merely doing what he should do. His job… https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m5ZiMoo43HU
    There are more bad cops than good cops. And as long as there are… FUCK THE POLICE! Cops deserve NO RESPECT until they do something to weed out all of the bad cops.

  • Karen

    “Keep our streets safe”? Sorry, but I have to laugh at that one. Are you seriously saying that “our streets are safe”? Tell that to the woman who was raped (anally & orally)… BY A COP. Who was merely charged with “sexual assault” because he knew the law in New Jersey & it’s only considered RAPE if it’s done vaginally. Or tell that to the schizophrenic homeless man who was beaten to death by 4 cops while crying out “Daddy!” over & over.
    The police tsart beating on someone who is NOT resisting. But, of ocurse, if someone is hitting you with a baton you are naturally going to try & cover the area they are beating. So, they call that “resisting” & continue to beat innocent people.
    What about the man who led police on a car chase until he crashed & was thrown from the truck, the truck rolled over him & he was laying there lifeless on the ground until about 15 cops ran up to him & immediately started beating him with batons, kicking him & punching him. The only “problem” they had was finding a spot for them to beat on because there were so many of them.
    I don’t care WHAT someone does. Arrest them if they broke the law! But the police have NO RIGHT to beat on people who aren’t resisting. They really don’t have a right to “beat” on anyone! There are ways (pressure points, take-down methods), to restrain someone without punching them, kicking them, tasing them, beating them, etc…
    And do not even act like you have never seen a police officer beat on someone when they are already IN handcuffs, IN the police car or face down on the ground. If you haven’t, I’d be glad to show you some footage.
    And why do you assume (along with all boot-lickers & cops) that “the police are the first ones you call when you are being mugged, raped, blah blah blah. MANY of us can, & have to, take care of ourselves. It’s a sad fact that the police will only arrive AFTER a crime has been committed & the offender has gone. Get a gun, protect yourself & your fellow citizens! Then, call the police to take away the scum because THAT is their ONLY duty.
    “keep the streets safe”. Ahahahaha

  • Justin

    All I want to say is that the use of drugs is illegal for a reason. Not because we want to control the items we put into our bodies. Rather, the consequences behind allowing such a thing go about freely. Drug’s cause violence, murders, underground business, all of which are negative to our society. Some may say that legalizing all drugs would remove that, however people have to get their fix on many drugs that are highly addictive and dangerous to ones health. That need for a fix is what drives crimes, for example, a meth head needs their fix, they don’t have money to buy it because they spend all their money on the drug. So they steal, rob, lie cheat, and do multiple other crimes that quite honestly have many victims. So your argument on putting people in jail for these crimes is kind of null in void.

  • Justin

    No offense man, but if your going to try to get rid of cops and state an opinion about them that is somewhat educated, I would recommend not using the term I want to kill a cop. It is just tasteless and gross, and completely destroys any credibility the OP had with this Blog. Regardless if its a cop or not they are still a human being, and anyone whom is willing to kill another completely on status, should be mentally checked out. Chill man go smoke a fatty or something.

  • uuberdude

    I hope you are familiar with the Stanford Prison Experiment. It points up the propensity to abuse in very clear terms.


  • Hayden Davies

    I love the customer service angle! I often forget that my taxes pay their salary. Secondly, on top of drugs, how many people are handed arbitrary traffic tickets where the safety of all individuals has not been violated in anyway. I’m thinking of things I’ve seen where someone falls to come to a complete stop but was moving slower than a walking pace, doing 10 km/h on an empty highway or other offences of this nature. How much time to police spend pulling someone over for these silly penalties? I would prefer my tax dollars to be going towards stopping violent criminals and making sure people who commit rape, attempted murder or murder and other violent t crimes are locked away for a very long time. If this means reducing the police force and increasing funding to assist the legal system, I think that would be a far better use of our tax money. I think their is value it catching careless and dangerous drivers but I since they waste so much time collecting arbitrary fines, I imagine they miss a lot of these more dangerous actions by others. End rant.

  • Hayden Davies

    Yes you are right it would mean they are commuting crimes induce by drug addiction however, you are assuming that all “meth-heads” are criminals that commit crimes above buying and using methamphetamine. This argument could be applied to fire arms as well so it sounds like you are not of the same political mindset. We (or at least I) believe that people should have the right to choose and those that commit the crimes you mentioned, well lying is not a crime unless it’s under oath, would be punished severely. However someone should still be able to make the decision about what they want to do with their body. Just to extend this further and I realize this is a bit of a stretch but every year people use cars to commit crimes and cause serious bodily harm or death due to negilence or deliberately. Therefore banning personal cars would prevent these crimes from happening removing the choice for people to use it as a means of transportation. Again, this is a stretch because in reality meth hurts a lot more lives than cars do while providing practically not benefit to society. However, I feel this relates to the ketchup argument, what stops lawmakers from taking away our ability to drive personal cars, how do we decide at what point should something be banned? In practically, I feel that punishing those that force their will or cause serious harm/ death to others but not banning complete and total free will. Again, not everyone agrees with this and neither idea works perfectly, its simply about who you want deciding how to live your life.

    Get smart man, it was like your 4th fuck up, come on!

    Ok you might be able to protect yourself, but there are other people that get preyed upon and victimized, stop being so self centered and think about the rest of the community

  • Hater lover

    You are just wasting your breath talking to shitbags like them, they never will understand what cops deal with. They are prejudice against the uniform and some of the biggest hypocrites i have ever seen.

  • Hater lover

    Whats up cop hater? Are all cops perfect . no, do some commit crimes? Yes. Not all cops are the same, stop being prejudice. A black man commits a rape, are you going to rant that you hate all black people too ?

  • Hater lover

    You are right, cops should not make excuses for being dickheads. i see people approaching cops and yelling insults, even when the officer is just standing there; what is their excuse for being a prejudice asshole? But that’s ok behavior right? People need to condemn that type of bullshit too, and not just seek out the cops as their only targets, it’s hypocritical.

  • Haterlover

    I know , right? It is somehow ok to behave in a disgusting manner to a cop. And you people that sit by and don’t condemn this are just as bad, it’s not right, have some integrity and judge people as individuals not a uniform, or let everyone judge you with the same disdain.

  • Hater lover

    Do you believe your own lies? I dont have run ins with the police all the time, because I’m not a criminal, take a look at your own lifestyle instead of trying to find others to blame from your situation. You’ve got issues man

    Yeah, that’s something cops do, spend their days looking at the internet for things people turn into guns. Cop put his hand on his weapon and threatened me for video taping with my iPhone. I called the police station and the oic tells me “cell phone guns.” Shut the fuck up. Fucking disgusting cowards. Keep up your shit, civilians will turn on you soon, we’ve had enough. Wish Dorner could have kept it up and killed more of you yellow pieces of shit, everyone I knew in SoCal was down to join him, we were just waiting for the rally cry. Can’t wait. Mmm hmm, I like my pigs lynched and burning. Smells like freedom.

    Why are people pissed at police, they don’t make the laws. Local, state and federal politicians make the laws, so why are you hating the people who enforce the laws not the ones making them?
    Well it looks like Wal Mart is about to start its own police force so that should make you happy.

  • flattop_62

    I am a combat vet with tours in Iraq and Somalia. I resent the comments that these people are ex military. They lack the restraint. I had two cops that were reservists. I sent one home and kept the other in the back. No one I know would choose to escalate. And the people we dealt with hated us with a passion! The attitude is nothing more than power tripping. Actions without consequence is dangerous.

    these idiots are all sitting in their mom’s basement wondering why they have to obey any laws,because mommy gave them everything they want. Laws like needing to have a valid drivers license, even though they think it is a victimless crime, are necessary, because if someone doesn’t have a driver’s license their insurance doesn’t cover them in an accident. So these dumbasses would be the same ones crying the policeif they had costs incurred from an accident that wasn’t their fault and the other guys insurance didn’t cover it because he didn’t have a valid license.

  • t

    You are complete scum. It is obvious that your brain is far less developed then the average person. I have no compassion for evil, and my compassion for the truely good people who’s lives you ruin is why I hate you with a burning passion. When I hear that a cop was killed it brings me joy. You deserve to be inflicted with all of the suffering you have distributed amongst the good people. You are pure evil and the only thing protecting you is the giant gang you associate with. When shit gets real in this country and good rises up, you will be pissing your pants like the cowards you are, stripping off your uniforms knowing that if you show your true colors the people will decorate their trees with your body’s.

  • Sanchez

    Yes. Everyone should hire cops they feel would protect them. I guess this would make a lot of things easier for me as a sociopath! They will protect me regardless of what I do because I hire them to my liking.

  • sanchez

    That was excessive. That was real excessive. And no I’m not a cop, god forbid you would gauge my eyes out like the cops you claim to hate. I just tend to appreciate well executed reasons regarding things like why not like police. However, here you are behaving as you are. And trying to ban someone you assume is police from a free internet website, sounding a lot like a bully… Looks like you are bad people too, a hypocrite. And most cops have crummy salaries regardless of what internet says. You can get paid shit load more being a trucker for produce. Cops are not rich majestic creatures that will kidnap you for calling 911 if your baby-daddy claims he won’t return your child. They just put it in the record and return child so if it should repeat itself it would help in custody battle. I can speak against them too but I think I will defend them in a forum where people like you kill the substance of the matter with your excessive behavior.

  • Mick

    That’s a great article, but where the libertarian argument fails, or is incomplete, is in that if you have different businesses or “customers” paying different “companies” for protection services, then you have to have some VERY stringent objective regulation otherwise what you will get is like the old west, this person’s posse full of tin badges, against someone else’s.

    For one, like private security, they would probably have to be restricted to the property and not be allowed to go roaming overland looking for criminals and serving “warrants” on the property of others, getting into shootouts with the posse of another. See where this could lead? You would still need SOME objective and independent police agency (or at least someone independently deputized as needed) to enforce the warrants of magistrates, or settle disputes of property theft in suits of equity, etc. And if you DON’T HAVE that…then what do you have? Well, you wold have the person who was able to afford the most police protection would get more “justice” than another, and the state would have no teeth at all. So, you’re left right back at the same problem where those with the most money get the most justice and protection, and those not able to afford it…who will provide for them if they are robbed on the street corner? Perhaps even by roving pirates belonging to another citizen? How will the government protect a natural or Constitutionally protected right of the least fortunate but citizen who is still deserving of justice? This is the type of question where I don’t think my fellow libertarians have thought well through.

    There must be an objective arbiter and authority, with some measure of force available, in order to secure rights to begin with. You won’t ever get away from this fact of human nature unless you want a completely dog-eat-dog mercenary type of policing where only those with money can play, and we’re cast back to the old west and anyone can be deputized with a tin badge for enough money to do virtually anything needing done under the color of law. This strict free-market viewpoint on policing fails because such a thing must be independent and objectively managed, and putting commercialism into that equation without some centralized regulatory and statutory authority is going to give you the equivalent of private gang warfare under the auspices of “law” and “justice”. IMO those things cannot be left purely to commerce, and LIBERTY would not be the result.

  • jill pratt

    As long as those who enforce the laws are exempt from them there will forever be injustices. A cop’s life is not more precious than anyone else’s, and until we stop deluding ourselves, they will continue to harass, brutalize and worse murder us.. Police run about with unaccountable power and will resort to disreputable tactics to put us “prey” in our places. They are very sick individuals who just drive around stalking and waiting to catch people.. Cops serve no positive purpose other than to perpetrate an air of fear and paranoia. Society would be much better- and safer – without them.

  • Rw Dyer Liberty III

    Dude I totally agree with you that the present model of policing is bad. Instead of all the complaining about it though it’s time we start showing viable alternatives to the present model and get people to start thinking of ways to implement those. I posted on my Facebook page an article recently that discusses some of this. Simply put bring back citizens defense groups as called for in the well regulated militia part of the 2nd Amendment. This would be one way to start. Let all peaceful people be armed and allow volunteer community watch groups to form and report to a local magistrate and let them instead of cops provide the policing and protection for the community. There are other liberty-minded alternatives out there. Join me and let’s all work together to find those alternatives present them to people and begin to change things before this all goes downhill into a tragic state of another civil war in America.

    Last night my girlfriend was assaulted in her own home by her relatives and two 18 year old boys she was friends with. I made an anonymous call to the police as i was unable to be involved in the situation as i could have been seriously hurt and i didn’t want her family to know it was me that had reported the occurrence for obvious reasons. The officer was very cold and swore openly in front of me. He behaved in a way no person should towards a 15 year old girl. He walked away from me without any note of where he was going and when i asked “excuse me sir where are you going” he sarcastically responded with “i’m doing my job” and laughed. The police are there to protect and serve, and very importantly help us feel safe in situations like the one i was in last night and i am absolutely appalled and astonished by the way the situation was handled. It really makes me feel like i cannot count on the police again.

    Fight on my brothers! With every dead piece of shit hired thug cop who is ambushed and executed I feel much safer. These thug criminal cops, everyone of them, need to know their place. That being said, cop killers, quit going after these pigs, go after their PIG children. Let them know if they dare challenge a citizen then they put their piggish children at risk. Do that, this crap ends and they will know exactly where they belong, as our bitches, their children, their wives, our bitches. So, PIGGY, how you like that? Here’s a better one. The enormous amount of pleasure I received from watching the media story on those 2 dead pigs in NYC, I can’t even tell you how absolutely fantastic it was to watch your brother’s in crime bawling their eyes out, I just wish I could have seen those pigs kids receive the same fate.

  • u.s. slave

    I say end them being allowed in a national union and that will fix so much. Also police are basically Nazi’s by definition, only real legal/constitutional (oh there I go w/terrorism lingo lol!!) law enforcement is sheriff & deputies, federal marshals too only when enforcing limited federal laws while sheriff &/or deputies are present & fully informed.
    Tonight 5 states or more are under martial law because of “snow” so I don’t foresee anything getting better anytime soon.

  • Britt

    If the story was as he says, then it wasn’t an inappropriate idea for him to go there and see if anybody was in trouble. That was o.k. You still need to be reasonable about admitting that sometimes they do, do things the right way; otherwise your going to lose your arguments against them buddy. Your discrediting yourself, when you don’t acknowledge when they “do” act appropriately. Your not saying that the police are saints because your admitting that some cops are decent in certain situations, so don’t worry and don’t go too far with criticisms. I had a bad experience with one too, but I can admit that what this guy did in this situation was o.k. If it was like he said.

  • Britt

    It depends on how “loud” and “bad” it sounded. If it was a moderate scuffle that a lot of people have all the time, then he should have let it go until someone made a call. Maybe it was “obviously” loud enough to warrant his attention. But, yeah, they need to be good with their discernment when it comes to making those judgments because people certainly don’t like exaggerated attention from authorities, when they’re not that crazy.

  • Britt

    wait, the hatred in your speech is also not good even if you’ve seen the police show their ass. I’ve seen it too, but take them on an individual basis. It’s still not good to paint them all the same, although they do have a propensity to go to the dark side because of the pressure from the one’s without scruples and who like to simply mess with people they don’t like, sure those are bad ones. But it’s a universal principle, that “hate’ energy attracts “hate” energy. The blue flame of anger is good, but the red flame is bad. The red flame is the kind of anger that people stay in or project onto others and that’s dangerous. The blue flame is a short time period and you get constructive ideas from it that actually can help your case and not just throwing darts at people. If you talk about your anger about the police intelligently, then people take you more seriously. You can even cuss at them a little. But, a huge rant of cuss words; doesn’t sound good. If your talking from personal experience then explain that and then use the curse words; at least, that way people know, you truly have a case and not just some immature person or teenager throwing darts for fun because some policeman caught them smoking marijuana on a Friday night. Your experience story just gives you more credibility.

I’d just like to say if you are contacted by me, I will show you the utmost respect as you deserve as a citizen.

    Im glad its known to many how cops really serve no purpose. They’re thugs, evil soulless fascist scum. A victimless crime is not a crime.

  • Manored

    The smaller an organization is, the easier it is for it to become corrupted. I think its woefully naive to think that splitting up the police into many smaller private organizations would somehow make it less prone to corruption or malpractice. And even more woefully naive to think some kind of “community police” would work better. History has show that when common, untrained people take it upon themselves to do police work, they manage to be more barbaric, over-reacting and prejudiced than any police force.

    Its just the nature of police work. Police forces are built entirely, from their organization to their training, to *minimize* these tendencies. The entire point of the police is trying to be as fair and respectful as possible while still being capable of effectively applying force when necessary and of keeping its own agents safe. And they ultimately fail not for lack of effort, but because its just that hard.

    I will also note that its not really the cop’s fault if, say, marijuana is illegal and then the’re forced to enforce that. Cops don’t get to make the laws, only to enforce them. I assure you that many cops would gladly let you smoke whatever you wanted in peace if enforcing the law was optional for them, but its not. And a private police force would not change this. If a local community decided it didn’t want any Marijuana within its confines, their private police force would need to enforce this rule in much the same way, because the’re there to enforce what the community wants enforced, not to judge whenever its right or wrong.

    I get the corruption of the institution. And it has to do with legislators as much if not more than the police. But going all private sector for policing, bad idea. The free market has no real accountability, and is only concerned with profit. So right there is the number one reason why turning the cops over to the private sector is a bad idea. There’s a million ways to skim and skimp to save a buck. How does that benefit anyone. True reform relies on our democratic institutions. Which unfortunately takes time and effort. Ever think about running for office A demo? Your voice would be invaluable. No change ever comes from the outside.

  • opiper

    Who’s the first person I’d call when I’m in trouble and need someone to help me? It definitely wouldn’t be the cops. Firemen or paramedics, sure, but cops? I can’t think of a single reason to call one. They don’t come when there’s a crime in progress so if I’m being threatened, assaulted, or raped, I’ll still get threatened, assaulted, or raped. They admit they won’t investigate property crimes and that my only chance of seeing my stolen stuff again is if they stumble upon it while doing a no-knock raid at a suspected drug dealer’s house, so why call them if my house was broken into or even just being cased? They don’t find missing persons or solve murders. Hell, they don’t even catch bank robbers. Their entire focus is on petty drug users and their petty suppliers. If they can’t make money off of contact with me, they don’t waste their time. So yeah, go ahead and keep thinking that you’re the one people will call for help. More and more of us are realizing how foolish doing such a thing actually is!

  • opiper

    Many flaws in your logic. 1) It’s acceptable for LEO’s to be in bad moods because they’re confronted with “bullshit” to deal with daily? That’s totally false. What exactly is bullshit? Is that the stuff that you were hired to deal with? Or is that some other stuff that is unique to your job (but not in your job description) that no other people could possibly experience at their jobs? Like, for example, at the DMV – are those people allowed to be in bad moods too, because they surely deal with some bullshit on a daily basis. And I bet stockbrokers and IT techs and just about EVERYONE in every job everywhere has some bullshit to deal with daily. You are not special and it does not give you a pass on your customer service disposition. You took a job where you knew you’d deal with potentially disgruntled and possibly armed people – that’s why you have a gun when most other job descriptions do not include one – and you knew your job made you a public servant, paid by and sworn to serve the public. So get over yourself and how you need a special pass on being polite and/or friendly to the people you serve, just because you think witnessing domestic violence or taking part in a no-knock raid is some kind of extreme psychological exposure beyond what you thought your job might entail. 2) To address the absurd notion that LEO’s keep our streets safe, I can easily refer to your example. If I were to have to deal with someone in a dark parking garage at night, no LEO could help me. There’s little guarantee that they’d even show up to the aftermath unless I died and needed the coroner to take my body away. Hoping a LEO might “deal” with that kind of situation on my behalf would be foolish and therefore wouldn’t happen. I’d either take someone with me I thought might be able to handle that type of situation were it to pop off like that or simply not be in a dark parking garage at night. And if the idea was that LEOs by their mere existence deter those types of encounters, not that they could or would actually “deal” with such an encounter in progress, I think that’s unlikely too or people wouldn’t currently fear those types of experiences. 3) Most importantly though, I think you’re really over-estimating the recognized value of calling a LEO when in need of help. More and more people are realizing that LEOs offer little to no help in crisis situations, and when they do show up its often too late and/or too ineffectual to make a difference. If I’m being assaulted (including raped), no LEO will prevent this from happening. They will take a report from me (if I live to tell the story) and then file it away so that the DA might be able to use it to prosecute someone for the crime, sometime in the future. So if a LEO can’t stop the crime, how do they help me feel safer? And if I’m robbed it’s even worse. It takes 2-3 days to get someone out to take a report on a burglary or robbery and all they do is catalog what was taken. They don’t try to identify the perpetrators and they make no effort to track down your belongings. Only chance of seeing your stuff again is if you’re lucky enough to have it stolen by a drug user or dealer, cuz LEOs raid their houses constantly and sometimes will make the link between the stuff at the drug dealers house and the stuff you said was taken from you. If they aren’t involved in drugs though, just theft, you’ll never see your stuff again and no one will be investigated, arrested, or prosecuted either. So, in summary, if LEOs won’t help me from being assaulted and they won’t help me when my stuff is taken from me illegally, when exactly would I call for help? Missing person? They don’t even look for them – they depend upon the public to do that for them. Injury or fire? Call an ambulance or firefighter. Public nuisance? Be an adult and handle it yourself. What LEOs are good for is harassing petty drug users and drug dealers. They’re also good at citing questionable drivers. But for the serious crimes we all care about, LEOs are sadly ineffective as first responders and as investigators. Who gets mugged by street gangs? And when is the last time a LEO prevented that from happening or successfully approached the gang to apprehend the perpetrators and retrieve the stolen property? Uhm, never? That’s a myth perpetuated by television. Recently, it’s been all about the money they can make off of civil forfeitures or the destruction they can cause without any financial liability doing SWAT-type raids on petty criminals. For how often those raids happen at the wrong houses where people, pets, and property gets destroyed without even an apology, let alone compensation, is enough to make even the staunchest LEO proponent feel a little frightened when minding their own business and abiding the law. LEO’s COULD be a more honorable group of people if they weren’t militarized and perceiving the people they serve as their enemies. But as long as the public wrongly continues to presume LEOs can stop crimes in progress or will investigate and rectify crimes already committed, the public will be sadly mistaken.

  • opiper

    It was brave of you to comment here when there is so much (excessive and psychopathic) hate being expressed towards your profession. It’s refreshing to hear a LEO remember that they are a public servant and that their customer service disposition matters. Its also very mature and responsible of you to accept criticism (some which is logical as well as some that is overly-emotional and/or threatening). You have a tough job serving the public and working beside other LEOs that do not have your respect for the intent of your profession. Thank you for not getting sucked in to the “biggest gang in America” and using your job as a way to get out your aggressions, fears, and prejudices. I just thought you deserved some acknowledgement for speaking out. Peace.

    Average for police is 100-115 but they run all levels. Typically, a person will need to be of near average intelligence to get through the criminal law portion. Although there is a single town on the east coast who will not hire above average iq.

  • Havoc1649

    I’m guessing you are using the Internet to either make up for poor self esteem or a small penis, lol! Im not a cop but I sure as hell have a brain and know the job isn’t all puppies and cotton candy that all you internet tough guys think it is. Step up and strap it on people, lol! Go into a drug infested gangland and give it a go lol! Too freaking funny! All talk no balls, par for the course.

    I think you are a special kind of dumb Dave Myers or a special kind of naïve. I find it hard to believe you have lived such a privileged life of safety enjoying good weed;) I’m not a police officer but I’ve lived long enough to know cops are needed. When a kid down the block impaled his mom with a sword, sliced up his sister, and chased another guy out the house while going on a rampage, are you the one that is going to handle that? What you going to do, offer him some peanuts? Lol. When a methed out guy is burning his gf’s babies for fun, what are you going to do? All stuff from my town that actually happened. Instead your going to whine like a petulant child about weed laws traffic tickets whatever that is set by the courts and law makers. Cops pay taxes too, so do they pay themselves? Lol! I personally pay a big chunk and don’t mind at all that they are out there to protect my little daughter from impaired drivers, pedophiles, people out of their minds on heavy drugs, and anyone else wanting to hurt her. It’s time to grow up man, seriously, your just making a fool of yourself. Like I said to another poster on here, why don’t you sign up. At least do a ride along and see what they do. Our police are citizens just like us. When you get older and have a family you will realize that when they are at your kids games with their own families.

    I find it funny how all the cops out there are getting angry on this page , with their threats and what not. It’s not enough that they rule through physical fear and intimidation but also you must worship. if I go up to a cop and talk shit I’d likely be beaten or jailed. That’s what’s wrong here. Cops think they are above the law as if by somehow enforcing the law they themselves are immune to its effect. It’s a paradox. They arrest us with righteousness and condemnation in their hearts, all the while believing they are somehow making a positive difference in life. These people(LEO)are naive and their Low IQs reflect this. I would say that 95 percent of LEOs are lacking in empathy and general morality. This is especially reflected when you see signs on police headquarters that say foward operating base. It’s a Us Versus you mentality. What’s especially ironic is the fact that we pay their salaries and that they applied for the job. No one made them become a LEO, they chose that ten for themselves. If a cop gets shot, I see that as no more than a job liability. If you don’t want to get shot then stay at home and work a real job that actually helps the whole of society. Real heroes don’t need guns and a silly little badge to hide behind. Real heroes do not strike fear into good and bad people alike. All LEOs are corrupt due to some degree of involvement or complacency in what has now obviously become a seriously flawed system.

    The reason they expect you to comply is to keep you safe. If you comply completely, you will notice that you weren’t intentionally hurt if at all. And if you say they haven’t kept people safe, they haven’t. It’s your job to keep yourself safe. It is the police’s jobs to respond to situations in which you aren’t safe. They are there to make sure you leave the situation alive, and to make sure you aren’t endangering others. get the facts straight, and stop putting the 2% with the 98%

    People always make the claim, cops are just people, how can you hate another human being so much. It is because of the following reason, they hate us first, and the police give up their rights to be viewed as a human being the moment that they clock in for their shift. As soon as they are on the clock, they are no longer a human being, but is now a tool of the state, and must be treated as such. My final comment is about people who marry cops. How can anyone be proud that their spouse is becomes lower than human filth everyday and subject him or herself unto a societal disaster that keeps growing more out of control each day. They might as well be saying that I’m married to a disaster, and I love it.

    As a police officer I find your article interesting yet a bit flawed. My wage is paid largely from the gaming industry here in Nevada. Some money comes from federal and state grants. You complain that we would take you to jail if you put ketchup in your system and it was illegal. Think about that for a second police don’t make the laws the people of our state vote on props that become laws. So if the people want something illegal then they can vote for it or not. All the police do is enforce laws that are on the books. Trust me we don’t agree with all the laws just like any person may not agree with what their employer wants them to do. This is called life if you don’t like it change the law don’t hate the messenger.

    First of all you don’t get to make the rules on where the police can or can nor reply. So go fuck yourself. Second I am a retired police officer and I make over 100k each year at age 47 and I will get a raise each year. Oh and I do nothing for that, the checks keep coming and so do the raises. Maybe you should have chosen a better profession don’t be made at us for having strong unions and knowing how to negotiate. So now that you are all worked up, I will put salt in the wound, I get free life time medical for me and my wife. Free dental and vision. I enjoy the fact that all those perks piss you off. Quit being angry because you are a ditch digger. Maybe you should have paid attention more in school or at least on career day.

    This entire article has me dumbfounded. I no longer have any respect for CopBlock if these are the beliefs behind it. I’ve been picking apart this entire thing, trying to make sense of it, but there is none. Laws are in place for a REASON. Oh, and one major argument in this is the fact that the people pay taxes that go towards funding police. Well… So don’t police… Hey, I don’t like paying taxes, but they have been in place forever and are necessary. If you don’t like it, go live in a f*cking cave. This entire article is BS. Oh, one more thing, although are SO many others, why the hell would we get rid of the police departments and replace them with private practices that individuals or businesses can choose to hire? I bet VERY few people would hire a police officer to stand around their house “protecting” them all day from POTENTIAL danger, that they don’t know would happen or not? This is essentially another form of insurance, I take it. Paying for help for something that might, or might not, happen. Ridiculous. Clearly completely my opinion, but jesus christ. The world would be in shambles if it were not for laws and the enforcement of them.

    I am not, however, saying that I agree with all laws. Marijuana, for example, I believe should not be illegal, unless you are doing something, such as driving.
