Denninger: Police....Fear?

Read it all.


...But the people of this nation, including this state, are tired of the crap.

The problem for the peace officers of this nation is that we're tired of all of the crap.

We're tired of the crooks like this clown who thought shooting and killing an arresting officer was a good idea, and who the very same justice system let out of prison twice after he committed violent offenses. We're tired of the crooks that are stealing houses and otherwise generally screwing the public by doing things like filing false affidavits or even just breaking in and changing locks, not even bothering with a court judgment first. And we're tired of the crooks that are police officers who shoot and kill a man in Seattle who is whittling with a pocket knife or who kick down the wrong door in botched drug raids and in doing so shoot and kill innocent people.

You folks in the police forces are interested in only one of these sorts of crook but not the others, and when you're after the first sort you really don't give a shit how many innocent citizens' rights you trample in the process. While we're well-aware that the number of officers who do the latter are in the minority, the fact remains that law enforcement studiously evades applying the same standards to a cop who kicks down a door at the wrong house and shoots the occupant and the guy who commits a home invasion - even though both, when the wrong house is raided, are in fact the same thing and bring the same result to the victim.

This is a problem. See, if the Zombies come, and it appears you're concerned they might, you're outnumbered standing alone, especially when you let serial felons out of prison who appear to believe that rape and gunplay are sports...

Choose wisely, officers.

Great column.
IF things are so bad that they have to even think about taking our guns, then they're bad enough to stop all enforcement of victimless offense laws and concentrate on actual human predators.
Won't happen. Without violent repeat offenders, people would wake up and realize "Hey, what they're really after is MY RIGHTS."
It's pretty standard that really bad criminals are reported to have a long, LONG record opf catch and release leading up to the act that got them in the national news. I predict that past offenses will become none of the media's business. People are starting to question the System because of it, people who were content to trust our Only One elites with, literally, their lives. It won't stand close scrutiny.
A commenter says of the Todd Blair police assassination in Utah "He should have obeyed the law. He knew the risk."
Another commenter says he himself has nothing to hide, so he's not afraid of a police intrusion.
Todd Blair wasn't the one police were after. They wanted his roommate, a suspected drug user and dealer, who had moved away some time ago.
So OF COURE Blair thought it was criminals smashing in his door at 3 a.m. There was no reason for the cops to.
Think on that, Mr. Nothing-to-hide.

Excellent article, and mirrors my beliefs.

I grew up in a "Respect your Police" society and always went out of my way to help and support my local police.

But over my military career I've worked with many LE Depts across the country... in this time I have witnessed the slow militarization of the various organizations and I have warned about it for many years.

Over the last fifteen years or so it has gotten to the absurd stage. With funding from the "War on Drugs" and the new "Terrorism" cash cow, the departments have accelerated their military style tactical training, purchases of military hardware, including heavy machine guns, military grade sniper systems and other military specific vehicles/technology... in essence making them paramilitary groups.

People are now starting to see these paramilitary units used almost daily and many innocent, law abiding citizens have been out right murdered by these miscreants.

When it can't be covered up and the Perp... er, officer is brought up on "charges", little if anything, ever happens to these killers... Instead their fellow conspirators... er, officers just close ranks and claim its just a few bad apples, which they continue to protect.

As noted in the article, they are woefully outnumbered by the criminals, so to continue this "Us Against Them" attitude with the law abiding citizen is a recipe for disaster.
