Cops: Public Servants or Fascist Pigs?

It was not many years ago when I considered myself a supporter of
"law enforcement." (I made donations, had the F.O.P. and Sheriff's
department stickers and everything.) Cops were, I believed, the
good guys, protecting the innocent and imposing justice upon
evildoers. Oh sure, I knew there was corruption here and there, and
scattered examples of police abuse--a few "bad apples" in the ranks-
- -but all in all, I thought the cops were the good guys.

Now I'm really darn embarrassed that I ever thought that.

This will be the first in a series of messages where we examine the
question, are the American "law enforcers" of today noble public
servants, or despicable fascist pigs?

First, we must define our terms. For example, someone having a
short temper, or exercising bad judgment, even repeatedly, is not
necessarily a fascist pig. No, a cop's level of "fascismo," if you
will, must be measured by something other than just being stupid or
even malicious. To truly be a fascist, a cop must demonstrate that
he has the fascist mindset. So let's define what that is.

A NON-fascist cop, when he looks out at the world, would see lots
of good people, whom he would want to protect, and would never want
to harm, intimidate, or even inconvenience unnecessarily. His goal
would be to find the nasty people in the world, and see to it that
they are prevented from harming any of the decent people.

A FASCIST cop, on the other hand, would view everyone as his
inferior, to be controlled, interrogated, or even abused at will.
He sees himself, a representative of "authority," as having the
right to forcibly impose his will on anyone he wants, whenever he
wants, for any reason (or no reason) and the right to use outright
violence against any who do not obey his every whim.

So, in this message and the ones to follow, we will examine
examples of police conduct in this country, and rate the level of
"fascismo" demonstrated by American "law enforcement." What we
won't bother looking at are things like a car chase which ends with
a cop with too much adrenaline in his blood, or a cop shooting
someone with somewhat questionable justification. No, we are
looking for ATTITUDE. The goal is to determine if American cops
today think like defenders of justice, or like fascist pigs.

- ---< Case Study #1 >---

As you may know, the feds now do internal "checkpoints," anywhere
they want within a hundred miles of the border. If you haven't yet
heard of this Orwellian absurdity, here are the basics:

http://www.aclu.org/privacy/37293res20081022.html

(Yes, I know the ACLU is very selective about which rights it cares
about. It fights hard to defend the First Amendment, while fighting
hard to VIOLATE the Second Amendment. But their site gives a good
summary of the "Constitution free zones.")

With the "checkpoint" information in mind, here is the specific
incident we're considering this time, with our "fascistometers" at
the ready:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YUzd7G875Hc

Once you've watched the entire video (it's less than nine minutes),
consider a few things:

1) First of all, would anyone who is NOT a fascist pig take part in
these warrantless, suspicionless searches at all? Well, no. To
think you have the right to stop and interrogate anyone who happens
to drive down a road, and the right to search through his stuff, is
a classic symptom of being a fascist pig.

2) Would anyone who is NOT a fascist pig view someone's reliance on
his Fourth Amendment rights (to not be subjected to an unreasonable
and unjustified search) as a REASON to search his car? Put another
way, would anyone who is NOT a fascist pig think that someone must
be a criminal if he doesn't want to volunteer to let some jackboot
rummage through his stuff? No. Again, this is a classic symptom of
someone with a fascist pig world view. (Note that in the clip, the
guy describes how the fascist pigs at one point admitted that
everything the guy went through was because he wouldn't answer a
question.)

3) Would anyone who is NOT a fascist pig FAKE "probable cause" in
order to get around that pesky Fourth Amendment? No. They had no
reason to suspect anything--to stop him at all, or to search him
after the stop--and then they LIED about it to make up an excuse to
do a search. Classic fascist pig behavior.

4) Would anyone who is NOT a fascist pig smash someone's car
windows, taser him, and forcibly extract him from his car, without
ANY "probable cause" to think the person had committed a crime?
Again, no. (If you're finding these questions difficult to answer,
please move to Cuba.)

5) Would anyone who is NOT a fascist pig grind someone's face into
broken glass, throw him to the ground, stomp on his head, and
otherwise assault him, when the person is unarmed and not
resisting, and when there is still no evidence that the guy had
committed any crime? No. (The clip doesn't say whether the cops
ever knew that the guy is a pastor.)

6) Would anyone who is NOT a fascist pig openly delight in someone
else's misery and suffering, while the person is handcuffed and
bleeding profusely, mocking and insulting the guy, when there was
still NO EVIDENCE that the guy had committed any crime? No. (I
could make another item about not letting the guy go to the
bathroom, but I'm trying to keep this relatively short.)

7) Here's an important one: Would anyone who is NOT a fascist pig
QUIETLY STAND BY while his fellow "officers" did what is described
above? NO. If this was a case of one or two "bad apples" in law
enforcement, wouldn't some other cop there have tried to stop it,
or at least complained about it afterwards? So how often have you
ever seen that? Where are the "good cops" speaking out about this
stuff?

8) Would anyone who is NOT a fascist pig want to proceed to
prosecute the VICTIM of all the abuse I described above, despite
the fact that there is STILL no evidence that he committed a crime?
No.

Okay, so what's the verdict for this example? Well, if the story
above is an accurate reflection of what "law enforcement" in this
country is like today, then American cops are indeed fascist pigs,
who deserve our utmost contempt and condemnation. (And if it is NOT
an accurate reflection of the attitudes and behavior of the police
in this country, where are the GOOD cops speaking out against this?)

In closing, I'd like to say the following to Mr. C. Diaz, Mr. B.
Griffiths, and Mr. E. Gomez, and any other Nazi swine who
participated in the incident described above. If some day you pick
the wrong target for your Gestapo crap, and the guy blows your damn
fascist pig heads off, the world will be a better place.


Cops: Public Servants or Fascist Pigs? (Part 2)

This is the second message in my ongoing series of messages
addressing the question: Are those in American "law enforcement"
today noble and brave public servants, or fascist pigs? Just to
review, we are not asking whether cops are hot-tempered, stupid, or
even sadistic. We're not trying to figure out if they're good
people, or if they exercise bad judgment. The question is whether
they have the fascist mindset. Once again, here are the choices:

A NON-fascist cop, when he looks out at the world, would see lots
of good people, whom he would want to protect, and would never want
to harm, intimidate, or even inconvenience unnecessarily. His goal
would be to find the nasty people in the world, and see to it that
they are prevented from harming any of the decent people.

A FASCIST cop, on the other hand, would view everyone as his
inferior, to be controlled, interrogated, or even abused at will.
He sees himself, a representative of "authority," as having the
right to forcibly impose his will on anyone he wants, whenever he
wants, for any reason (or no reason) and the right to use outright
violence against any who do not obey his every whim.

The incident we will examine in this message, unlike the last one,
does not involve open violence and physical abuse. However, it is
just as good a test of the attitude of the American "police." The
following video clip will explain the circumstances, but in short,
a guy who works for the Campaign for Liberty was stopped,
interrogated, and arrested* at the airport, for having a bunch of
money with him (about $4,700). (* Whether or not the cops actually
said he was "arrested," you know darn well what would have happened
had he tried to leave. Ergo, he was being forcibly detained against
his will, a.k.a., arrested, even though no crime was ever charged
or alleged.)

http://www.campaignforliberty.com/blog.php?view=14907

In reality, the guy's real sins were two-fold: he didn't volunteer
to subject himself to an unwarranted interrogation by the
federales, and he had a bunch of stuff with him (e.g., Ron Paul
bumper-stickers) indicating that he likes freedom, and dislikes big
government. (Oh, the horror.) So in reality, it's pretty likely
that the money was the EXCUSE for detaining and harassing the guy,
but not the real cause.

But again, what we're looking for here is not about the particular
scenario, but about the ATTITUDE of those in "law enforcement." Do
they respect individual rights, or do they think they can do
whatever they darn well please, and that everyone else should
unquestioningly obey? So let's consider a few points:

1) Would anyone who is NOT a fascist pig think it's okay to detain
someone for simply being in possession of a bunch of money? No. Any
non-fascist cop would know that such behavior is both legal and,
more importantly, NONE OF HIS BUSINESS. Not the American "police."
EVERYTHING is their business, in their eyes, whether it's illegal
or not.

(It's true, it was pretty much money, around $4,700, but that is
neither illegal nor all that unusual. I suspect that at one time or
another, even if not very often, most of us have had a few thousand
in cash and/or checks on us, if we're going to buy a car, or make a
big down-payment or something.)

2) Would anyone who is NOT a fascist pig think it's okay to try to
bully someone into answering something that he has NO obligation to
answer, and that the police had no right to ask in the first place?
Keep in mind, if the guy was a drug-runner, or a professional hit-
man, the Fifth Amendment says that he would NOT have any obligation
to say where he got the money, and that the cops should NOT in any
way try to compel him to answer. So do we have FEWER rights when
we're NOT breaking any law? In the eyes of the American Gestapo,
apparently so.

3) Would anyone who is NOT a fascist pig tell someone that "if you
have nothing to hide" you'd automatically happily answer any
unjustified questions any jackboot with a badge decides to ask you,
even if there isn't any reason to suspect you've done anything
criminal? Nope. Once again, it's classical Nazi-think: that not
wanting to let them violate your rights constitutes PROOF that you
must be a bad guy and guilty of something nasty.

4) And again, an important point to always include: Would anyone
who is NOT a fascist pig quietly stand by while his fellow
"officers" treated someone like this? No. How hard would it be for
one noble "public servant" to say, "Hey guys, it's not illegal to
have cash, and even if he really is a criminal--which we have no
reason to suspect--he still doesn't have to answer our questions"?
So how often does that actually happen? Ever?

This time, the example of fascism had a relatively happy ending.
Eventually, after illegally and immorally stopping the guy,
illegally and immorally detaining him, and illegally and immorally
trying to interrogate him (not to mention insulting and harassing
him), the cops let him continue on his way. And how many people do
you think would have had the fortitude and wisdom to NOT meekly go
along with their fascist bullpoop? (And how great was it that the
guy happened to have the presence of mind to secretly record the
incident?)

As I've said before, those pretending to be "authority" act like
all-powerful gods because their victims TREAT them like all-
powerful gods. If we all act like wimpy peasants, groveling before
anyone pretending to be "authority," what do you expect the
fascists to think of us? How would you expect them to treat us? If
being an American ever meant anything, it should be this: We don't
take $#@$%# from government. In other words, it is UNAMERICAN to
"cooperate" with government wrongdoing.

And though this second scenario, thankfully, did not end in bloody
violence, the verdict is the same as it was in the first: all
indications are that those in American "law enforcement" today are
fascist pigs who deserve our utmost contempt.


Cops: Public Servants or Fascist Pigs? (Part 3)

Again, this series of messages is addressing the question, are
today's American "law enforcers" noble public servants, or fascist
pigs? Ironically, I remembered a video I had seen that was really
bad, but that I did NOT consider evidence of the fascist mindset. I
was GOING to reference the video as an example of the fact that
cops being rude, obnoxious, even violent, or using bad judgment, is
not necessarily proof that they think like fascists. They might
just be bullies, or hot-tempered morons. So I looked for the
example I had seen before, of a rather large off-duty cop brutally
beating a petite female bartender, because she didn't want to give
the violent drunk any more alcohol (go figure).

What I was GOING to say about the video was that, while it may
demonstrate that cops can be stupid, abusive, violent alcoholics
(and they are, more often than the general public), it's not what
I'm talking about when I say that they are fascists. However, when
I looked up the video again, the aftermath of the event gives a
perfect example of how "police" ARE fascist pigs.

Once again, the goal here is to determine which of the following
best describes American police today:

A NON-fascist cop, when he looks out at the world, would see lots
of good people, whom he would want to protect, and would never want
to harm, intimidate, or even inconvenience unnecessarily. His goal
would be to find the nasty people in the world, and see to it that
they are prevented from harming any of the decent people.

A FASCIST cop, on the other hand, would view everyone as his
inferior, to be controlled, interrogated, or even abused at will.
He sees himself, a representative of "authority," as having the
right to forcibly impose his will on anyone he wants, whenever he
wants, for any reason (or no reason), and the right to use outright
violence against any who do not obey his every whim.

So let's consider this example, and see what we can learn from it.
Here is the video:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=49kgG0s7lVk

The video of the original beating clearly demonstrates that
"officer" Anthony Abbate is a violent sadistic bastard, not to
mention a mean drunk. However, it doesn't by itself prove that he's
a fascist pig. Being a vicious scumbag who likes to beat up petite
women is not a good quality. And giving someone like that a badge
and a gun seems like a stunningly bad idea. But he may be merely a
stupid, power-happy animal, rather than a genuine fascist.

(It would have been nice if some of the other people who were there
had had the spine to actually DO something about it. Yeah, the
scumbag is a big guy, but he was also so sloshed that his swings
missed a stationary target several times. I doubt a target that
swung back would have had much trouble subduing him. If nothing
else, I think one hollow-point 9mm to the kneecap would have slowed
him down quite effectively.)

However, the AFTERMATH of the event is a classic example showing
that "law enforcers" ARE fascist pigs. If the other cops cared
about law and justice, and that sort of thing, how would they have
responded to the incident? They would have been screaming for
Abbate to be fired, charged with assault, and thrown in jail. In
fact, had the other cops roughed him up a bit while arresting him,
I for one wouldn't have complained.

But what did they do instead? They spent lots of man-hours
PROTECTING the thug, from public scrutiny and from public anger,
using their pretend "authority" to scare away the press. In other
words, they showed that loyalty to their gang of thugs matters more
to them than loyalty to justice or the law. Where are the GOOD cops
screaming for Abbate to be hung out to dry? I haven't heard any
yet.

So once again, the verdict must be: American cops are fascist pigs.

(P.S. The fact that sometimes a cop goes after someone who's
actually a criminal does NOT mean that that cop can't be a fascist.
Even the Nazis sometimes went after real criminals. Likewise, the
fact that a cop might not harass everyone he meets also does not
mean he's not a fascist. If he thinks it's up to HIM who he stops,
detains, interrogates, etc.--whether he has any "probable cause" to
suspect a crime or not--then he is an honest-to-goodness fascist.)


Cops: Public Servants or Fascist Pigs? (Part 4)

Once again, it's time to take another look at American "law
enforcement" in action, to determine if they are noble and brave
public servants who deserve our utmost respect, or if they are
fascist pigs who deserve our scorn and condemnation. So here is
today's example (only a few minutes long):

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MZW0gGKKYMg

During the incident shown on that video, most of the cop's comments
demonstrate that he is a belligerent jerk and an obnoxious
butthead, but that's not really what we're looking for. The fascist
mindset is more than just being rude, or even being a bully. So,
for example, when the cop yells at the kid, assaults him (in a
relatively minor way), pushes him to the ground, threatens to smack
him in the head for his "attitude," and steals his skateboard--not
to mention making what is basically a veiled death threat--that
shows that the DUDE is a basically rotten human being, who
certainly should NOT have a badge, or ever be given any power over
anyone. But it does not, by itself, prove that he is an honest-to-
goodness fascist. The indications of THAT are more subtle.

Once again, here is the test for whether a cop is a fascist or not:

A NON-fascist cop, when he looks out at the world, would see lots
of good people, whom he would want to protect, and would never want
to harm, intimidate, or even inconvenience unnecessarily. His goal
would be to find the nasty people in the world, and see to it that
they are prevented from harming any of the decent people.

A FASCIST cop, on the other hand, would view everyone as his
inferior, to be controlled, interrogated, or even abused at will.
He sees himself, a representative of "authority," as having the
right to forcibly impose his will on anyone he wants, whenever he
wants, for any reason (or no reason) and the right to use outright
violence against any who do not obey his every whim.

So, aside from being a bully and a thug, what indications do we see
of "Officer" Rivieri's view of the world? Well, he seems to think
that when HE is talking, "you shut your mouth." He also gets rather
dramatically offended when someone calls him "dude"--which was the
cause of his prolonged, delusional temper tantrum to begin with.
(Of all the teenagers out there in the world, the one in the video
seems to be rather LOW on the rudeness scale.) The cop also orders
the kid to sit down, suggesting that he likes to be standing over
people.

What do all those things tell us about this cop? They tell us that
he loves DOMINATING other people. In other words, he loves
pretending to be AUTHORITY--the one with the right to boss everyone
else around. Notice how vehement he is about being called "OFFICER
Rivieri." (Personally, I think "Nazi Swine Rivieri" would be more
appropriate, but that's just me.) He repeatedly demands "respect,"
which, in that context, obviously means that he wants everyone else
treating him as their SUPERIOR.

And the dead giveaway--the FIRST thing he complains about to the
kid--is that the kid "disrespected me, this badge, and my
department." By doing what? By not groveling to the master,
obviously. The kid didn't fight, didn't resist, didn't yell, and
didn't do any of the other things he would have been perfectly
justified in doing. In the eyes of Fuhrer Rivieri, the kid
committed blasphemy by calling GOD ALMIGHTY "dude." Because Mr.
Rivieri is no mere mortal. Oh, no. He is a representative of
AUTHORITY, and thus must be obeyed without question, and treated at
all times as a superior being!

And that, ladies and gentlemen, is the mindset of a fascist pig.


Cops: Public Servants or Fascist Pigs? (Part 5)

(Warning: My language gets a little caustic in the message below,
but nothing worse than a PG rating.)

Once again, it's time to put American "law enforcement" to the
test, to see if they are noble public servants, or fascist pigs.
This time, let's have some audience participation. Let's play,
"Spot the Fascist Pig" while viewing the following video:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F5Kl8Abi7ag

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rE1kxAsaGwk

So, did you have any trouble spotting the fascist pig? Well, let's
see. Did you choose the sadistic bastard beating up the defenseless
girl (Deputy Pig Paul Schene)? If so, you only get a "C." While it's
very likely that that thug was indeed a fascist pig, the evidence
in this video didn't actually prove that.

Again, let's remain clear in our terminology. "Officer" Sheen is
obviously a sadistic piece of excrement, but was there actual
evidence of the fascist mindset? Not really. Someone who doesn't
pretend to be "authority" could still exhibit such violent,
bullying behavior. As a result, the violence, by itself, is NOT
proof of genuine fascism. I guess one could make a case that anyone
who would characterize a girl daintily kicking off her shoe as
"assaulting an officer" is pretty likely to be a fascist pig, but
it's not nearly the strongest case shown in the video.

I know the video is unpleasant to watch--at least if you're a human
being--but I ask that you watch it again, keeping your eyes on the
OTHER cop. Here is the link again:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F5Kl8Abi7ag

Now recall the test for fascism. Does that guy--the one NOT
actually beating up the defenseless girl--look like his goal is to
protect the innocent? Hardly. Does he look like a defender of truth
and justice? Uh, no. Does his failure to intercede, and in fact his
assistance in the assault (though relatively minor), show that he
is a fascist pig whose loyalty is to his fellow thugs, no matter
what they may be doing? Absolutely. Being able to assist in such
abuse and oppression when one is NOT enraged is a BETTER indication
of the fascist mindset than someone having a violent temper tantrum
(which may instead merely indicate that someone is a stupid,
violent animal).

But even if you chose the thug's "assistant" as the fascist pig in
this case, you still only get a "B." It was really a trick
question. The correct answer was: the thug's assistant AND the
"spokesman" for the gang of Nazi swine, who refused to condemn
actions that were obviously illegal, unjustifiable, and downright
despicable. Instead of openly condemning such blatant evil,
Sergeant Jim Laing, like the spineless little worm he is, refuses
to comment. (I'm assuming the guy is the fascist gang's
"spokesman," but what good is a "spokesman" who refuses to SAY
anything?)

Several people, including my brilliant wife, have recently taken
issue with me seeming to imply that ALL police are "fascist pigs."
Well, that is EXACTLY what I am implying, and this is a perfect
example of WHY I believe that. Being fascist pigs is OFFICIAL
POLICE POLICY across the country. The other cop in the room, does
he try to stop the vicious attack committed by his fellow
"officer"? No. Does he even seem slightly shocked or surprised? No.
He calmly ASSISTS in the abuse.

I'm sure many of you would have many well-deserved, less-than-
complimentary words for the thug himself, but I'd like to add a few
for the thug's "assistant": You are a worthless, cowardly piece of
crap. You don't deserve a shred of respect, regardless of your
stupid badge and your imagined "authority." You are not a man, you
aren't even a human being. I hope everyone you know, all your
friends and family, see that video, and see what kind of spineless
maggot you are. And I appreciate you giving such a fine example of
how courageous and principled the "men and women in blue" are. You
are a Nazi pig, and you'd be doing the world a favor if you go jump
off the nearest cliff.

While I'm at it, how about a few words for the floundering, evasive
police "spokesman"? Dear Mr. Spineless propagandist. You would have
made Joseph Goebbels proud. My only hope is that some day some
noble "law enforcement" officers, not realizing that you are a
member of their club of inferiority complex, sadistic scumbags,
beat the living hell out of you, until one of two things happen: 1)
you die, or; 2) you suddenly find yourself able to identify evil as
EVIL, even when it is committed by one of your fellow "officers."

One--just ONCE--I want to hear some police "spokesman," when asked
about such a blatant example of police abuse, say something like,
"I think that Officer Paul Schene is a cowardly piece of crap, and
given the chance, I'd gladly pound the living hell out of him
myself." When THAT happens, instead of their predictable butt-
covering, obfuscating and excuse-making, THEN I might regain some
respect for "law enforcement." Until then, they're all fascist pigs
as far as I'm concerned.


Cops: Public Servants or Fascist Pigs? (Part 6)

Once again, it's time to determine whether American "police" are
noble public servants or fascist pigs. The good news is, rendering
a verdict this time can easily be done after the first four seconds
(literally) of the example video (which is about eight minutes
long):

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-taU9d26wT4

Now, I don't think this needs much explanation. Beating up little
old ladies, in their own houses, in order to disarm them? Randomly
disarming everyone, right and left, pointing GUNS at them in the
process, when there wasn't even the suspicion that the people had
committed any crimes? Barging into homes and destroying property
without a shred of due process, without even the allegation that
the person had done anything wrong? Do I really need to point out
that any "officer" who would engage in such things is a fascist
pig? I hope not. Here's some more Nazi thuggery, in case you needed
any:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sm5PC7z79-8

But what's worth pointing out here is that this is NOT a case of a
"bad apple" here and there. This was widespread, premeditated,
officially-sanctioned fascism. When you have the damn chief of
police openly declaring that he and his fellow Nazi swine intended
to disarm EVERYONE (except themselves, of course), then don't tell
me that I shouldn't say that ALL American police are fascist pigs.

In that second clip, one fascist swine, Chris Montgomery, this time
from the "National Guard" (I wonder who's going to guard us from
the "guard"?) laments how tough it is to have the job of being a
fascist pig, disarming, maybe even SHOOTING Americans. Sorry, but I
don't sympathize. In fact, if the local fascists in YOUR town ever
declare that they are going to disarm everyone, and you see Chris
Montgomery and his fellow Nazis walking down your street, you would
be absolutely justified in shooting that fascist bastard in the
head at the first opportunity, and shooting every other jackboot
who is with him. When they've openly declared their
unconstitutional, illegal, immoral, tyrannical intentions, what
more justification could you possibly need?

Once again, let me state the obvious truth: if you have a RIGHT to
self-defense, and the RIGHT to keep and bear arms, then by
definition you DON'T NEED "government" permission to do so. And, in
fact, when authoritarian thugs tell you that you don't have the
right, you STILL DO, and you have the right to use whatever force
is necessary to protect your rights, including shooting jackboots.

I wonder how many fascist thugs in New Orleans did things that
would have justified their intended victims blowing their damn
heads off. Probably almost all of them (at least all of the ones
shown in those videos). On the other hand, I wonder how many cops
DIDN'T violate everyone's rights? Any? Were there ANY "law
enforcement" people in New Orleans who REFUSED to partake in the
officially-sanctioned Gestapo garbage? I haven't heard of any.

So don't complain when I say that ALL American police today are
fascist pigs. When I see some evidence to the contrary--like
someone with a badge, a spine, and a brain (if anyone in the
country still has all three) doing something to STOP the police
state absurdities going on all over then country, then I might
regain a speck of respect for "law enforcement." But not before.

Oh, and have a nice day.
