Hey NYPD: Think For Yourself!

Just as it’s wrong to lump all those active in NYC’s Occupy Wall Street demonstration under one label, so too is it wrong to view those employed by the NYPD (or any other law enforcement agency) as a monolith. Yes, whoever is employed in that capacity is guilty of aggressive force since their salary is paid via stolen money (taxes) but thanks to gun-run indoctrination (aka public schools, which also exist via stolen money and top-down control) and the mindless rhetoric of the lamestream media, most have never been exposed to, yet alone considered, an alternative.

Most individuals who go into law enforcement do so for good reasons – to help others. Yet, because the institution for which they work is sheltered from competition (those in government claim a monopoly on the “legitimate” use of force, or the ability to do things wrong for you or I under the auspices of “protecting and serving”), there is no check on the provision of law enforcement.

To put it another way, there is an oversupply of law enforcement. Since “customers” (those of us not employed as cops) don’t have to be wooed by good service and low costs (since today we can’t fire our local police department), metrics used to gauge success include things like the number of cops on the force, arrests made, or “laws” (really arbitrary man-made legislation) to enforce.

When in the thick of the fray on Saturday my bud Tommy and I both communicated this perspective to those wearing badges, since it’s very likely that they’ve never been exposed to such ideas. Unfortunately none seemed too receptive at the time, but who knows – often you can have a conversation with someone that germinates for a while eventually causing them to follow-up on a resource and eventually question the Statist Quo. At least I hope that’s the case since I’d much prefer to see a peaceful evolution than an escalated police state.
