    And what does that mean?
    Killing one person is murder, killing 100,000 is foreign policy

    I just don't fathom the way a majority of Americans are "Surprised" that there is such discontent amongst the citizenship across the country.

    When I first began to contribute views through forums like these (The TVO Forum - 2005 as an example), I wrote strongly worded views that the "American Street" was going to explode and that martial law was going to be implemented. I predicted 15 years maximum till all hell broke loose.

    Because of my lifestyle, I had frequent interactions with "The Street Folks". And I was hearing huge "Revengeful" anger. Especially the middle class because they had once enjoyed the "American Dream" and had lost the "Dream" during a tilting economic downturn. I noticed that the lower class were just angry, but not "Revengeful" angry like the middle class was. I think it was because the middle class can not handle losing the "Dream" and where the lower class had never enjoyed the "Dream" in their lifetime.

    It is not going to be Poor Folks who tear America apart ..... It is going to be the middle class.

    I believe that the Tea Party was the beginning of a middle class revolt. They even boldly holstered their handguns on their waist line when they turned up to rallies and events. But, the Ruling Class simply co-opted the message in the same way that the Occupy Movement message was co-opted and the media narrative of both movements changed within a very short time.

    I am not surprised at all when watching the civil unrest in Baltimore and elsewhere across North America.

    If the media failed to have people completely aware of the noticeable anger simmering within minority communities and groups, then it would be also true that the media has not voiced the anger presently existing upon every North American Street.

    The Baltimore Police have something of a credibility deficit already.



    On the other hand both statements can be true....

    Maybe the Ruling Class deliberately set out to criminalize Poor Folks so as they become of legal age they are unable to own a gun.

    There is no way that law enforcement would unfairly target and harass any area of town if everyone had a gun, like in most white areas of town.

    Maybe, before you bring a community to their knees, and drain the city of financial resources or heap oppression upon the local residents, maybe, yuh gotta disarm them first?

    I don't remember a political rally or protest parade in a black area of a city and who were armed to the hilt like the middle class was when they headed out to their Tea Party meetings. I never saw a group of poor folks flashing their NRA badges. All those folks who signed up to the Norquist Pledge have no problem defending their "Human Rights" at the threat of a gun.

    If I was a working stiff on Wall Street and there were Occupy Folks outside protesting and causing damage maybe, and if my boss told me to get my ass outside and strike somebody on the head as hard as I could with a baseball bat, I don't think I could do it. I don't think I could find the amount of violence within my soul in order to carry out such an order.

    Maybe if I was set upon or attacked, I might well find the necessary violence or inner strength and strike out at my opponent, but not just some individual Occupy Protester who simply refused to clear the street and/or "Civilly" challenged authority as to the neccessessity and/or my bosses right to instruct me on head bashing techniques.

    When I see law enforcement crack somebody over the skull or spray chemical gasses into their faces, I see a person who would agree to follow my boses instructions for a salary of 75 or a hundred thousand bucks a year and a lifetime of fringe benefits. And, I see a guy who loves living his middle class life as a cop and will crack as many heads as necessary just to keep his job and pay his middle class lifestyle.

    Is just the fact that "Authority" was being challenged enough to sic the dogs on people?

    Do the police just crack skulls because it is cheaper than to hire more police?

    Who are these mercenaries who can dish out such violence upon another human being?

    Re: Baltimore Police: Gangs Enter Partnership to ‘Take-Out’ Officers [W:99]

    When I watch law enforcement break up an illegal strike or an illegal picket line at any workplace, I keep thinking of how law enforcement enjoys the most affluent and most protective workplace labor contract known to ManKind. In Toronto, the cops refused to obey a court order to wear proper "Uniform" hats while on duty. The cops were all wearing baseball hats as a form of protest or pressure on City Hall to meet the union demands. In some areas of North America, the cops threatened to withdraw their labor and call in sick.

    And when I watch law enforcement appear in TV Land and beg people to rat on their neighbours if they see them steal a lawn mower, while the cops themselves have a Blue Line built into their "System" and anybody who rats out a fellow cop is shunned as if in a leper colony.

    Everyone should read a Police Union Contract and there would be no doubt about why they like being a cop. And, just in case you are not aware, there are many side agreements which are signed but do not appear in the published "Member Contract" booklet. But the lawyers got all the addendums.

    And all those folks within these forums, and have voiced your view that most all unions should be shut down in the morning .... Well, I dare you all to start with Police Unions and Associations. Make them your test case, If your plan succeeds there, then ask me to quit my union association.

    Maybe it would be cheaper to close down the union and all the fringe benefits, and just make the cops themselves pay "Malpractice" insurance like a doctor does?

    What are you trying to say here, that cops are justified in their abuse, excessive force, corruption, and violation of department conduct codes because they have a tough job? I mean there's others that would agree with you, but certainly not everyone.
