Daniel I am of an age when the police were in fact Peace Officers and would only interject themselves if and when needed. Over the last 50 years there has been a shift where they are no longer peace officers. They are the ones acting above the laws and trampling on the God given RIGHTS of others! They inject themselves then escalate things so they can claim jurisdiction... There by creating new revenue stream for the Corporation they work for. By the way there is no such thing as a government, let that sink in Dan. What we have are CORPORATIONS that are privately held acting in the guise of a government.
We have Policy Enforcers that can and do murder people and get away with it, much of the time. We have Policy Enforcers investigating fellow Policy Enforcers, for wrong doing and they clear themselves, just about all the time. Imagine that! They hide it behind policies and procedures, these policies and procedures violate the supreme law of the land as well as many of their statutes, let that sink in. The supreme law of the land being The Organic Constitution for The United states of America, NOT the revised Constitution that is used by the corporation known today as The United States.
Daniel, you were a Policy Enforcer, I will bet you never enforced the supreme law of the land, you were enforcing policies and color of law and turned your back on the Constitution and Bill of Rights. I could be wrong but I don't think so because an honest cop doesn't go very far.
Every Policy Enforcer (cop, law enforcement) violate their Oath of Service daily when they enforce color of law and corporate law on the public that do not apply to us. There are statutes in place that are there to protect the public from the abusive and corrupt corporations acting in the guise of government and their equally corrupt and abusive, policy enforcer.
Here are a few you should look up:
18 U.S. Code § 241 - Conspiracy against rights
18 U.S. Code § 242 - Deprivation of rights under color of law
18 U.S. Code § 245 - Federally protected activities
18 U.S. Code § 2234 - Authority exceeded in executing warrant
18 U.S. Code § 2236 - Searches without warrant
42 U.S. Code § 1983 - Civil action for deprivation of rights
42 U.S. Code § 14141 - Cause of action
Dan, I think you are an honest man and want to do the right thing. So take the blinders off and see what really going on. Last year your brothers in blue killed 1186 people, about 60 of them were unarmed that make it murder. For the first six months of 2016 they have killed 532 people. Guess what in England and Wales there have been 55 people killed by the police in the last 24 YEARS!
Go look at the numbers deaths per capita for given jobs and occupations. A trash or recycle collector is 3 to 4 times more likely to die on the job than a cop. A carpenter is 8 to 10 time more likely to die on the job that a cop.
How many of your brothers and sisters die on the job from heart attacks do to anabolic steroid us because they think it give them an edge.
I look at the numbers, there is a war alright, it's Policy Enforcer war on the public, backed by CORPORATIONS they work for and are sheltered by.
If what I have posted causes you to stop and think, and rethink about what I have said than I have done my job. It's not about us verses them, because we are ALL being played by the power elites. When things fall apart it will be your brothers and sisters that will pay the price, not those that cause it.
I wish you the best. Kriss
