Is society was made of coral our world would be floral.
Police beat a lot of people to death. Got crazy with tazers. Have burned off men's genitals with tazers. Shooting men a dozen times - no crime, no weapon. Another, fired 64 rounds at a man (no crime even alleged) from a long distance - the officer first shouting "he has a gun" and after unloading 15 rounds from his Glock and reloading runs towards the dead man, saying to his recorder "good, you got the knife" - an outright lie as the video showed he was holding brake pads. The crime he had committed none.
YouTube has almost an endless list of such videos, and increasingly women being assaulted to. Not convictions. Maybe, rare, the officer is fired.
And for every 1 videoed there will be 100 that aren't.
Watch, and you will see nearly always the officers involved are fat skinheads.
While the majority of criminals aren't police, the worst possible violent assailants you could possibly face are the police. You are totally defenseless. No one will come to your rescue - at the most my videotape your destruction and death. No police will come to your rescue, they are the criminals and those who aren't will just watch. And, because the police are the criminals, there will be no hurry to call EMTs, and when the EMTs arrive often they do little and are delayed by the police.
IF you are under violent attack, the worst possible situation is police are the assailants.
Yet it is known why this is so often. You see it on this forum. People support the police no matter what.
Sometimes I've read people ask why Germans didn't put up any resistance against what was being done to Jews by Nazi brown shirts and police. You only have to see the attitudes of so many people about horrific and murderous police violence against citizens to understand why they didn't. No one can oppose the police no matter what they do.
