We are definitely headed down a dark path with law enforcement becoming targets at an alarming rate. We’ve had the two officer in New York shot and killed, and a third who just lost his life the other day. Now two more police officers killed in Hattiesburg.
I don’t think the problem is with the law enforcement as a whole being the entire problem. Most of the problems are occurring because of criminality, lawlessness, and the mentality of snitches end up in ditches in many of these communities. Barack Obama and his administration definitely has thrown fuel on the racial aspect of things by some of his statements condoning the rioting and condensation in these communities. Along with what he and his administration hasn’t said about police officers being killed. And by sending people to some of these thugs funerals and not sending anybody to police officers being killed. There is something in the works for chaos to happen. It’s just not happening here either, other countries are in the middle of civil wars against dictators and monarchs. Yemen and Syria are in the middle of civil wars. Lebanon is caught in the middle, and radical Islam is thrown in the mix to make a complicated situation more complicated.
From what I have heard and seen from this administration is the lack of support for law enforcement. And support for thugs. On the other hand I don’t go along and follow blindly see an unbridled support for law enforcement either. There are problems within the law enforcement arena with brutality, civil rights violations, and other misconduct for law enforcement personnel. The entire justice system is corrupt in many ways. From over zealous prosecutors and police, to prosecutors and defense attorneys making deals about which cases they are going to give each other.
Laws and legislation revolving around things like the patriot act have robbed us of our civil rights and liberties. And after listening to Judge Andrew Napalitano he tells the truth when he has made statements about the police and police departments knowing exactly what they can get away with when it comes down to use of force and police brutality.
And over my short lifetime I have seen the erosion of our civil rights and liberties. Since 9/11 things have changed drastically with the introduction of the patriot act and other legislation. Creating agencies like Homeland Security. Why do we need the Department of Homeland Security when the FBI is supposed to take care of domestic issues and the CIA is supposed to take care of International issues? Why add another department? Just to make sure it looks like they are doing something? Like we need more red tape and bureaucracy. And FEMA being intertwined with stuff, the NSA spying on Americans. Where does it end? When are people going to wake up? Maybe they have started with all the civil unrest taking place. Politicians are running amuck and have the attitude and audacity to say don’t worry about it. We’ll take care of you.
America is becoming a police state. People are getting swatted. The IRS is attacking individuals for political affiliations. The banks report to different agencies about people deposits and red flags go up when deposits are made at 10k and up. You put a deposit of 10k or more on a car they have to report it. The government wants to know where and how you gained your money. If you don’t deposit enough and they think you are trying to hide something asset forfeiture kicks in and good luck with that fight to get you assets back.
On some of the stuff I’ve been reading and the way things are going, on average, the average person commits there felonies a day. There is a book out there with that title and I plan on reading it.
Here’s the description off Amazon:
Three Felonies A Day: How the Feds Target the Innocent
The average professional in this country wakes up in the morning, goes to work, comes home, eats dinner, and then goes to sleep, unaware that he or she has likely committed several federal crimes that day. Why? The answer lies in the very nature of modern federal criminal laws, which have exploded in number but also become impossibly broad and vague. In Three Felonies a Day, Harvey A. Silverglate reveals how federal criminal laws have become dangerously disconnected from the English common law tradition and how prosecutors can pin arguable federal crimes on any one of us, for even the most seemingly innocuous behavior. The volume of federal crimes in recent decades has increased well beyond the statute books and into the morass of the Code of Federal Regulations, handing federal prosecutors an additional trove of vague and exceedingly complex and technical prohibitions to stick on their hapless targets. The dangers spelled out in Three Felonies a Day do not apply solely to “white collar criminals,” state and local politicians, and professionals. No social class or profession is safe from this troubling form of social control by the executive branch, and nothing less than the integrity of our constitutional democracy hangs in the balance.
People do need to wake up and realize actions are being taken to control the masses. It’s done by fear mongering and we are told we need to give up some of our liberties and rights to benefit everyone and their safety.Now they are pushing to have kids microchipped for their own safety. Having all of their information on a chip so we can find them? Track them later on in life? People say it’s safe, they do it to pets all the time. There’s no issues with it. It won’t be used to track people or use it against anyone.
Before long, I see in the future cash will be done away with. With everyone using direct deposit, using their credit or debit cards all the time. Oh! what a great convenience they say. Along with filing out income tax form, and census forms. The government knows almost every detail of our spending habits. Our lifestyles and size of our families, ethnicity. Every aspect of our lives are under the microscope. DNA is getting collected and on record for criminals. How long is it going to take for the government to try and cohere everyone to get their DNA collected for the betterment for the good of all.
Just like microchipping, we can collect DNA so we can identify people who are missing or whatever. We’ll know where they have been. Do it for genealogical purposes so we can possibly eradicate disease or genetic factors. They are already doing some of that. I bet the military has DNA profiles on everyone in the service. So if they just find bits and pieces of someone they can find and notify families by asking for DNA samples of who they suspect it is. How long before that would be abused to track people down? Get questioned by the Feds and they take a DNA sample to see if you are lying about your identity?
It’s going to turn into the novel 1984 or Logan’s run or some shit. I also see in the near future our drivers license is going to become a national identification and the little magnetic strip will have every aspect of our lives on it. You’ll use it to buy things, identify yourself with, pay bills. Everything will go through your ID. All these cameras out in public to give us a false sense of security.
It’s coming with all these riots and protests going on about police brutality and abuse. Cops becoming targets. It’s just a matter of time before the government puts its foot down. Maybe martial law is on the horizon. Maybe not, but it is something to think about. I hope I don’t see it all happen in my lifetime. We only have the perception we are free anymore. I’m waiting for another revolution of some sort to kick off.
