Welcome to the American police state

Thomas Jefferson quote: Experience hath shewn, that even under the best forms of government those entrusted...

Definition of tyranny

1. Oppressive power exerted by government : The tyranny of a police state

When did it become the normal American state to exist in a state of “Diminished liberty” when in public?

When did our liberty fade so far that we cannot drive down the street or walk down the sidewalk without fear of being pulled over, stopped, frisked or searched?

We now live in a virtual police state with heavily armed domestic warriors ruling the public spaces that we occupy

Whether on land, sand or sea, you, and I, are subject at any time to inspection, search questioning or arrest

At any given time, with the amount of laws and regulations on the books, you are most likely in violation of some law

Even worse, with “Proactive policing” you are subject to questioning and a body search simply because an enforcer of the law believes that you might be suspicious.

The lawmakers that rule us have declared, via the supreme court, that during that search, if the heavily armed, bullet proof vested, arm of the local Government, feels threatened, you may be placed in handcuffs while being detained and questioned

That’s right

You as a free American, while having committed no crime, are subject to search, detainment and (for the moment) temporary imprisonment

I say temporary because at that point most anything you do can end with your arrest

For example, if you are vacationing in Florida and are looking at a boat that has floated onto the beach

Under the proactive policing guidelines issued by the U.S. DOJ, a police officer is obligated to investigate you to make sure that a crime is not being, or about (That’s right…About) to be committed

If that officer feels threatened, even if you are a group of middle aged disabled women in swim wear, you will be handcuffed for their safety

(Note: This is based on a true story)

From that point on your freedom is in his , hers, or their hands

In Florida to resist or oppose an officer is a crime punishable by a year in jail and a $5000.00 fine

Below is the statute

843.02 Resisting officer without violence to his or her person.Whoever shall resist, obstruct, or oppose any officer as defined in s. 943.10(1), (2), (3), (6), (7), (8), or (9); member of the Florida Commission on Offender Review or any administrative aide or supervisor employed by the commission; county probation officer; parole and probation supervisor; personnel or representative of the Department of Law Enforcement; or other person legally authorized to execute process in the execution of legal process or in the lawful execution of any legal duty, without offering or doing violence to the person of the officer, shall be guilty of a misdemeanor of the first degree, punishable as provided in s. 775.082 or s. 775.083.

 

And here is the dictionary definition of resistance

verb (used with object)

1: To withstand, strive against, or oppose
2: To withstand the action or effect of
3: To refrain or abstain from, especially with difficulty or reluctance
But remember this; you are not under arrest, you are simply being questioned about a washed up boat that you are looking at
You could
The charge “resisting arrest” is long gone
Now the charge is “resisting /obstructing”
Simply opposing the officer that is questioning you about a crime that he thinks might be committed (But hasn’t) can end with you being imprisoned for up to a year
So if you are handcuffed, in the Florida sun and in pain because of confinement, be careful not to do anything that could be construed as “Opposing” the officer because “justice is extremely expensive” (1)
Although this is based on a true story that occurred in Florida* , it is not about Florida
It is about the basic human right not to be subject to unreasonable search or seizure
Not the 4th amendment right
That is the right that the Government has granted us
That right comes with limitations that are spelled out by the supreme court
DUI roadblocks, warrant-less cell phone data collection, email interception and many other instances
But the 4th amendment was written into law, not to make it have limitations, but rather to state the basic human right
Once written though, it has given those that rule ample opportunity to make excuses to legally side step it
Can you imagine the men who wrote that thought into a legal document being subjected to it today?
Seriously, The men who stood at Lexington to the withering fire of trained British troops?
The men who authored the Boston Tea party?
Can you picture Samuel Adams or George Washington, pulled from their carriages and handcuffed on the side of the road?
Forced to show their permission from the state to travel and summarily searched?
How have we come so far from freedom and so deeply into the hands of tyranny?
And tyranny it it is
What do you feel when you are driving down the highway and a law enforcer pulls up on your bumper?
Seriously, what?
Fear
Heartbeat
Adrenaline
Fear
And why?
Just a ticket right?
Or maybe not
Maybe more
Why fear?
There is a short and simple answer
Tyranny
The power of the Government is being exerted over you without your consent
Did you vote for a 45MPH speed limit?
Were you represented when it became illegal to tint your windows?
Did you beg “your” lawmakers for drug dogs to search vehicles at routine traffic stops?
For the safety of officers did you consent to being searched and handcuffed?
Tyranny, because any encounter can end with you in prison
Or worse, dead
You are at the hands and mercy of a state backed law enforcer
You hope that he will be lenient
The law right now is up to him
Anything that this law enforcer says in court is given the weight of truth
Because the state is on his side
He is not only the face of the state
But also the income of the sate
If you resisted while in handcuffs
It is because the law enforcer interpreted it that way
And only because the lawmakers that “Represent” you have written laws to make it possible
And you are now going to pay the state thousands of dollars
Fines, court costs, Etc.
All so you can pay for your own loss of freedom
It happens on the local level
The state level
The federal level
It is in its most base form
Tyranny
Resist it at your own risk
* In 2015 a group of disabled women were arrested by Florida Fish and wildlife commission  officers at Honeymoon Island state park in Hillsborough county Florida and detained in handcuffs for hours.  All three were charged with resisting/obstructing for refusing the search of a vehicle that two of them did not own. After filing complaints against FWC, one year later, the arresting officer was changed and the charge was changed. All three were later convicted and one served 30 days in prison.

4 Houston cops shot , Update: cops lied on warrant that ended in shooting

Lying bunch of dipshits got their asses shot up because the house they hit never sold them heroin as stated in the warrant.    Mister wannabe hero that lied on the affidavit was one of those wounded in the shooting and I hope he caught a good one.      You should be aware  that anytime you deal with the “Heroes in Blue” that they usually have something to gain by lying . Whether it is monetary, power related or simply to cover their misdeeds, more often than not, they will lie.     Why? Because they are automatically assumed to be telling the truth. A Judge will give the testimony of ” A sworn officer of the court” the weight of truth with no examination.       So why not lie? Why not get promotions, awards and raises when all you have to do is bend the truth?       But it is not just the cops; It is the lawyers, judges, DA’s and everyone else involved.   They all profit from it and build careers, political lives and personal wealth.      If you sit in a court you should really remember this : Before you condemn a fellow citizen, the cop, the prosecutor, the lawyer are just as likely to be committing a crime as they are.     The only reason that this info on Houston came out was the fact that someone leaked the COURT SEALED DOCUMENTS.   Who is the scumbag here? The drug dealers or the cops? Maybe someone should contact Mr. Garabaldi to find out.

       Houston — Houston’s police chief says a lead investigator lied in an affidavit justifying a drug raid on a home which ended with two residents killed and four officers wounded in a gun battle. The officer is expected to face charges.

Chief Art Acevedo said during a news conference Friday that the investigator falsely claimed in the affidavit, which was leaked to the media, that a confidential informant obtained heroin from the home. Police records indicate the heroin was actually obtained elsewhere.

Two residents of the home, 59-year-old Dennis Tuttle and 58-year-old Rhogena Nicholas, were killed.

The investigator was one of the officers shot in the gunfight Jan. 28. He remained hospitalized Friday. Officials said he has been with the department for more than 30 years.

In the hours after the deadly raid, Acevedo praised the investigator as being “tough as nails,” but he said Friday that there’s a “high probability that there will be a criminal charge” brought against him.

After the raid, police said they found several firearms at the home, along with marijuana and cocaine but no heroin. Acevedo insisted Friday that investigators did have reason to investigate the home and were not there “willy nilly.” Authorities still believe Tuttle and Nicholas were involved in criminal activity, but Acevedo said the case now is undermined.

He said lying in a sworn affidavit is “totally unacceptable.”

“From day one, when I joined this department, I told my people that if you lie, you die,” Acevedo said.

The leaked affidavit — which had been sealed under a court order — revealed that when police started looking into the investigator’s account, it started to unravel. Still hospitalized with a gunshot wound, the investigator wrote down the name of the confidential informant for another officer investigating questions around the drug raid.

When Houston police contacted the informant, he said he had worked with the investigator on narcotics cases in the past, but not the one that led to the deadly shootout. The informant also said the investigator had paid him in the past even when he didn’t do any work.

I’m a cop. If you don’t want to get hurt, don’t challenge me.

What the fuck? This is America? Did the British win and I didn’t I didn’t hear about it?    You can’t tell me that a free people in a free nation are accepting this…. Bullshit….

This police state has to be stopped. We are now occupied by a military force payed for by our own tax dollars. We finance our own fate

We are Palestine

And we need to start acting like it

 

“It’s not the police, but the people they stop, who can prevent a detention from turning into a tragedy.”

“Don’t argue with me, don’t call me names, don’t tell me that I can’t stop you, don’t say I’m a racist pig, don’t threaten that you’ll sue me and take away my badge. Don’t scream at me that you pay my salary, and don’t even think of aggressively walking towards me.”

“A teenager is fatally shot by a police officer; the police are accused of being bloodthirsty, trigger-happy murderers; riots erupt. This, we are led to believe, is the way of things in America.

It is also a terrible calumny; cops are not murderers. No officer goes out in the field wishing to shoot anyone, armed or unarmed. And while they’re unlikely to defend it quite as loudly during a time of national angst like this one, people who work in law enforcement know they are legally vested with the authority to detain suspects — an authority that must sometimes be enforced. Regardless of what happened with Mike Brown, in the overwhelming majority of cases it is not the cops, but the people they stop, who can prevent detentions from turning into tragedies.

Working the street, I can’t even count how many times I withstood curses, screaming tantrums, aggressive and menacing encroachments on my safety zone, and outright challenges to my authority. In the vast majority of such encounters, I was able to peacefully resolve the situation without using force. Cops deploy their training and their intuition creatively, and I wielded every trick in my arsenal, including verbal judo, humor, warnings and ostentatious displays of the lethal (and nonlethal) hardware resting in my duty belt. One time, for instance, my partner and I faced a belligerent man who had doused his car with gallons of gas and was about to create a firebomb at a busy mall filled with holiday shoppers. The potential for serious harm to the bystanders would have justified deadly force. Instead, I distracted him with a hook about his family and loved ones, and he disengaged without hurting anyone. Every day cops show similar restraint and resolve incidents that could easily end up in serious injuries or worse.

Sometimes, though, no amount of persuasion or warnings work on a belligerent person; that’s when cops have to use force, and the results can be tragic. We are still learning what transpired between Officer Darren Wilson and Brown, but in most cases it’s less ambiguous — and officers are rarely at fault. When they use force, they are defending their, or the public’s, safety.

Even though it might sound harsh and impolitic, here is the bottom line: if you don’t want to get shot, tased, pepper-sprayed, struck with a baton or thrown to the ground, just do what I tell you. Don’t argue with me, don’t call me names, don’t tell me that I can’t stop you, don’t say I’m a racist pig, don’t threaten that you’ll sue me and take away my badge. Don’t scream at me that you pay my salary, and don’t even think of aggressively walking towards me. Most field stops are complete in minutes. How difficult is it to cooperate for that long?”
