WHY COPS FEAR-SHTF
“All tyranny needs to gain a foothold is for people of good conscience to remain silent.”
“The ultimate tragedy is not the oppression and cruelty by the bad people but the silence over that by the good people.”
...And for the most part get away with it, often with no more than a slap on the wrist and job intact! Most people carry around a romantic idea in our heads of what a policeman ought to be like. It stems from our childhood - where we were taught to trust the badge and from books and films that paint an idealized picture of the 'men in blue' as protectors of the community from any who would do us harm. But whether or not this rosy ideal ever existed today's enforcer is no different than a hungry wolf put to 'guard' the sheep pen, each one of us is viewed as potential prey to be abused at the drop of a hat. Failure to comply with the gun-wielding thug's commands (lawful or not) or to record or bear witness to their abusing of other 'sheep' is to invite the most brutal retribution from himself and his buddies!
The saddest part of all is when society refuses to make these abusers account for their criminal acts! The inevitable result - like any other criminal lack of justice emboldens, leading on to further crimes. We now live in a world where the sight of a policeman rather than making you feel safe, causes most to be nervous about becoming the target of a legal shakedown. Like the guy who got threatened with rape with the officer's gun for parking violations; like the man who got pulled over on the way to buy a car and had his cash sum confiscated, or the family that was told to bring cash to cover a relative's bail bond, only to have the bail funds stolen using the pretext that it could be drug money; or like the teenager handcuffed while in a cell tased by a state thug who brags about it - the list goes on and on!
Not so very long ago, society used to blame the victim rather than the perpetrator for certain crimes. Crimes such as rape are still largely covered up - its victims ignored and left to suffer in the military! A sign of society's coming of age will be when all crimes against other humans are seen as abhorrent and punishable no matter the perpetrator. At that time, those wearing badges and blue costumes will be held to the same standard as those they purport to 'protect and serve' - that day is some ways off!
Omertà, a code of silence originating from Italian mafia, pervades both street gangs and cops alike! The secret to taking back control from these abusive organizations has been to break open the code of silence and cause their members to 'spill the beans' on criminal activity. Until the uniformed gang members with badges patrolling our streets, no longer get a 'free pass' when they interact unlawfully with the citizenry - or destroy, deny, or fabricate evidence with impunity - the violence will continue!
The Blue Shield will only be pierced once double standards in law enforcement are a relic of the past! Once cops can legally record us in public, then it must also be legal for us to record them; if we break the law by lying to police they must also be prosecuted for lying to us - simple, yet effective changes!
Being a rogue cop once meant abusing the law - today it means preventing abuse from your buddies! Things have come so far around, that law-abiding citizens regularly opt not to cooperate with police - in some cases refusing to request their help due to a very real fear of themselves becoming a target!
Police Stealing Bail Money?!
You may think your biggest threat when carrying any amount of cash over $1000 is a thief or armed robber, but you’d be wrong.
Your most immediate concern is not being robbed by a criminal, but rather, by the very people who are supposed to serve and protect the public.
As one New Jersey man found out when he was on his way to pay for a car he purchased on Ebay, a new heavy handed trend called “policing for profit” is empowering law enforcement officers to ignore fundamental Constitutional safeguards against warrant-less searches.
[Video report follows excerpts]
George Reby was driving down Interstate 40, heading west through Putnam County, when he was stopped for speeding.
A Monterey police officer wanted to know if he was carrying any large amounts of cash.
“I said, ‘Around $20,000,’” he recalled. “Then, at the point, he said, ‘Do you mind if I search your vehicle?’ I said, ‘No, I don’t mind.’ I certainly didn’t feel I was doing anything wrong. It was my money.”
That’s when Officer Larry Bates confiscated the cash based on his suspicion that it was drug money.
Bates said the amount of money and the way it was packed gave him reason to be suspicious.
“The safest place to put your money if it’s legitimate is in a bank account,” he explained. “He stated he had two. I would put it in a bank account. It draws interest and it’s safer.”
“But it’s not illegal to carry cash,” we noted.
“No, it’s not illegal to carry cash,” Bates said. “Again, it’s what the cash is being used for to facilitate or what it is being utilized for.”
NewsChannel 5 Investigates noted, “But you had no proof that money was being used for drug trafficking, correct? No proof?”
“And he couldn’t prove it was legitimate,” Bates insisted.
In fact, Reby had proof on his computer. [The ebay evidence he showed the officer was not sufficient]Video Via The Daily Sheeple
“On the street, a thousand-dollar bundle could approximately buy two ounces of cocaine,” Bates told NewsChannel 5 Investigates.
“Or the money could have been used to buy a car,” we observed.
“It’s possible,” he admitted.
NewsChannel 5 Investigates asked Bates if Reby had told him that he was trying to buy a car?
“He did,” the officer acknowledged.
“But you did not include that in your report,” we noted.
“If it’s not in there, I didn’t put it in there.”
So why did he leave that out?
“I don’t know,” the officer said.
Source: News Channel 5We could venture a guess why Officer Bates failed to include this absolutely critical piece of evidence in his report… Maybe because if Mr. Reby can’t afford an attorney to prove his innocence(!) then the State of Tennessee, specifically Mr. Bates’ police department, gets to keep the money.Tennessee law legitimizes what amounts to armed robbery by police officers. Had Mr. Reby refused to give up his money and fought his attacker as any reasonable person might when threatened, he would no doubt have been charged with a host of crimes or worse.
This is a clear cut Constitutional issue, but the police, government and judicial system will refute any such claims, or completely ignore them, showing once again that the protections laid out by the Constitution of the United States of America mean absolutely nothing to the sycophants and thieves who we have entrusted with preserving our most dearly held principles.
