Comments on: For police, when it comes to law and order, ‘order’ historically comes first http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/2014/12/23/for-police-when-it-comes-to-law-and-order-order-historically-comes-first/ Thu, 21 Jul 2016 07:57:19 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: SixthRomeo http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/2014/12/23/for-police-when-it-comes-to-law-and-order-order-historically-comes-first/#comment-108724 Wed, 31 Dec 2014 14:05:00 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/?p=36717#comment-108724 The article accuses “police misconduct” as the cause of all our problems while it is anarchy on the part of the USA public (as it is anywhere) that causes problems. Anarchy is unacceptable, it is the lack of order, Michael Brown was an anarchist, his parents are anarchists and his supporters proved themselves to be anarchists by their demands that no policing authority stop them from doing whatever they wished in Ferguson and that police disarm themselves so they would be subject to being murdered by those same protesters. Government is not the problem, police are not the problem, citizenry that is mentally and socially unstable is the problem.

No one is making them.

Their current problem is that they have a hero complex (they eat up the talk of bravery), but they what they really tend to be now is trigger-happy and paranoid. Completely jumpy and without adequate resolve, based on recent footage.

Only by exterminating the traitors does the USA have a chance.

How amusing that arm chair Academics and detached Citizens who have never engaged the brutal criminal elements or suffered the mindless, emotion driven offenders or struggled life for life with drug-driven lunatics or attempted to out-fox terrorists before the innocent die. Please…write your books, publish colorful theories or shout inanely from the safety of the 1st Amendment wrapped in the folds of a street mob.

Or set yourself against life/death, roll the die and see if you make it to the end of Watch. Would surprise overtake your sensibilities to know how easy it is to both assume responsibilities for community safety and to lose your life on any given day or night?

I would bet that Mr. Steinberg and others do not live in the “hood” or worry outside their well-protected homes. If you wish to write/speak of Police corruption there are many countries on the “bucket-list”. Post Script: Do notify your Next-of-Kin when making travel plans.

Americans…such silly and uninformed creatures.

Never trust your Constitution to a washed-up high school jock. Be skeptical of the police, know they are just human; and that they therefore do not enjoy special powers for entry, interrogation or detainment. Make them work for it. They are your flunkies, not the other way around.

Every truthful person knows this. Why were no bankers sent to jail after the bank bailouts? Because know laws were broken? Sure, that’s the ticket, that makes you look honest. No, we are a land of rich vs. poor and no justice. The only lynching that still happens are done by racists in the south. No “mob” as you call them has strung anyone up. You can scare old small white people, but the rest of us are unafraid of the image of chaos that you portray and which isn’t real. Anyway, chaos would be preferable to the corruption we now have.

The police have to do their job, and sometimes they have to make quick decisions, sometimes with guns, and hindsight is always 20/20. This is in contrast to a doctor or lawyer who have time to think before they act. As far as I am concerned, people who hate the cops need to pack up their stuff and leave. Move to Mexico where 40+ students went missing recently. And I do not see very many Hispanics out their with the protesters. Having lived in Mexico, many of them know the difference. I don’t want to even begin to imagine what the US would be like if there were no police.

Just look at the prisons crowded with men, the men killed by police, beaten by police, etc. (and thank goodness for the Innocence Project). Men are damned in this society. If you’ve got a male offspring prepare to be robbed of them.

But 21st century Civilian assistance safety campaigns will look like Google camera mapping platforms in 4 K hi-def resolution with infrared scanning of all pedestrians the entire street and every Heat signature gets streamed back to HQ. If Paddy in the 1950’s could tell you might be trouble by your swagger;We can tell everything about you by your Heat signature,then attach a chemical or pheromone tag trace or tracking component you would never know that teams had been sent to track and protect you. Sound Far Fetched? Why no more than Riots in the street or Civilian Vigilantes Hunting the White Hats;Promise me you will not wait until They mouth the words;”Too Late,”on the streets of your lost Society
