Mitt Romney approves!
In some places a random person could call and say your wife is crazy. Cops would then get to finger her vagina for suicide risk if some dip**** mistakes anything for anything.
Is society was made of coral our world would be floral.
That's probably why they issue oversized sport-bras.Or do I simply remove my bra and wrap it around someone's neck? Then after strangling them I simply put my bra back on. Bras should be illegal in jail and prison.
This is just one more example of the increasing militarization of police in the United States. Serve and protect is long gone. Now they are trained to wage war on the citizens of this country. This is an awful trend and we should all oppose it. It hurts everyone and serves no one. Innocent people are abused and harassed, our fourth amendment rights have been obliterated, and the integrity of the police profession has been virtually destroyed. Everyone should work to oppose these changes in police procedure and mentality.
Liberté. Égalité. Fraternité.
LEOs (in big cities, especially, and depending on their beat) see the underbelly of society. The dregs of U.S. humanity, day-in/day-out.
They interact with drug addicts, people who lie right to their face, women-beaters, child abusers, drunks, murderers, you name it. They walk into crime scenes that would make most of us puke our guts out and be haunted for the rest of our lives.
I think it'd be pretty damned hard not to let that become a pervasive downer in one's life. I wonder...if PTSD is real? I'd think (again, especially in big cities) that our LEOs are rife with it.
Were we to drop the war on drugs and concentrate on violent offenders instead, then it would become less likely that ordinary citizens encounter harassment by police.
Can't we just turn Congress off and then turn it back on again?
