Tired.

I personally wouldn’t go so far as to label police as “the enemy”, but I was truly touched by the heartfelt rawness of this, and even though the author didn’t expect it to make it to CB as a post, he sent it in and I’m publishing it. -Jeff

-by Jason Roberts

I am not a liberal. I’m not a fringe right wing lunatic. I’m most generally a responsible member of society. I work hard, and with the exception of some speeding, I don’t break the law. I care deeply about my community and the rights of the people who populate it, including my own. I sincerely want my country’s constitution to mean something. But I feel the most immediate threat to that ideal is from the police. Operating with near impunity. Bending the law, breaking the law, using the law to collect fines, trick, and intimidate. I don’t feel the police are there to protect me, my family.

I came across this site and to be honest I hadn’t heard my views and concerns expressed so concisely. It’s taboo to question the police. I mean they are revered, receive the same respect as a soldier. I came home tonight and watched a video of police abusing their power. I wasn’t surprised. But I was inspired to write, for the first time in a long while. I wrote a poem, and it’s not pretty. It’s not beautiful, and it’s probably not good. It’s probably silly. But it’s honest. I’d like to share it.

The Police are your enemy.
I don’t care who you are, what socioeconomic background you come from.
The Police are your enemy.
You needn’t be a protester, a minority, a teenager, or just a concerned citizen. The Police are your enemy.
They are Tax Men.
They are brutal enforcers of an agenda.
You pay them, but they don’t work for you.
The Police are your enemy.
Intimidation, violation, defilement, transgression.
Tax Men levying fines at their discretion.
Mobsters at the very best. Operating around the law.
Maneuvering between it.
And tricksters to treat the ignorant with a pointed lesson.
Just, whatever you do, don’t question.
Because The Police are your enemy.
It is not their duty to uphold the law, but to work the law in their favor at your expense.
It’s glorified.
Deified.
So don’t point your finger.
You might have it broken.
The Police are your enemy.
