The police state gained steam in the 1980′s through the drug war, and unwinnable war against the American people, which was then accelerated by Bush and Clinton in the 90′s.

Then came 911 and as we slowly see drug laws loosening, anti-terrorist laws and force are blanketing the landscape making the anti-drug war look like a gentle massage to Bush and Obama’s terrorist approach of bending over uncle sam and raping him while recording it for syndication on your favorite fearporn outlet.

Post 911 brought a new world and quickly militarized the police force to look like your favorite GI Joe characters.

Events like Occupy Wall Street saw the rise of some mainstream media outrage as the good cops of the good ol’ days were hard to find, replaced by the bully hopped up on steroids and assault rifles.

The Boston Bombings resulted in police swarming the streets with militarization and while it disturbed some, on the mainstream scale it was hailed as a victory, where ‘Murica defeated the terrorists.

Then other incidents popped up like with Christopher Dorner, where it was shoot at whoever we damn well please and ask questions later. Or more fitting, “don’t ask questions at all mother fucker.”

Now finally, finally after the protests in Ferguson, Missouri, the national media at large has asked, “what and the holy fuck!?”

The focus by many has been on race but for anyone paying attention, it is all about state vs. citizen. The government vs. the individual.
