Good Cops Shouldn’t Tolerate Bad Cops

September 15, 2017

When a video like the one below surfaces the tendency is to say all cops are like this. Even though this video blows my mind at how stupid this cop is, I will not paint all cops with the broad brush this bad cop has placed in my hand. Not all cops are like this.

When you watch this video you will notice the other police officers, not the security guards, seem a little uncomfortable with the action this cop has taken. I think the cop whose body camera filmed this video is trying to figure out how to get out of the mess that the out of control cop has created. So why do regular cops seem to stick up for bad cops? Don’t they know that their silence about the bad cop is seen as support by default? Their inaction is in fact an action.

If you drag this video to 11:00 you will see an officer, who I think is of higher rank than the arresting officer, try to smooth over the situation. The higher ranking officer is using verbal gymnastics and a calm voice to try to confuse the nurse. He is trying to convince her that his fellow officer is in the right and the nurse is wrong. But the Nurse is right. The cops need a warrant or the person’s consent to draw blood.

When you watch the video. Try to put yourself in the nurses shoes. Try to put yourself in the arresting officers shoes, if you can. But try to put yourself in the shoes of the cop who is filming this. What would you have done if a colleague of yours acted like this?

GROUP IDENTITY

I don’t understand the mentality of sticking up for a person in your “identity group” who is not just being an ass, but is not following the rule of law. I am a white male but I have no problem saying that another white male is dead wrong. The difference is I don’t think of myself as a member of a group consisting of white males. I think of myself as an individual. For some reason people find their identity from being a member of a particular group. When you identify yourself as a member of a group and not as an individual, you have to look at criticism of another member of the group as being an attack on the whole group, and therefore an attack on you.

Each of us is a member of many groups at once. We are members of the particular family we were born into. We are male or female. We are a particular race. We have a particular religion or no religion. We work in a particular profession. We have particular hobbies. We are American or from another country. We are a Democrat, a Republican or neither. There are many groups we can choose to identify with. And that’s when the problem starts. We paint ourselves into corners that are hard to escape if our identity comes from a group. You can identify as an individual even though you are a member of many different groups. You don’t have to defend the bad people in ‘the’ group if you think of yourself as an individual first.

Watch the video. Put yourself in the nurses shoes. Put yourself in the arresting cops shoes, if that’s possible. But try to put yourself in the shoes of the cop who is filming this. What would you have done if a colleague acted like this?

 

Sheriff Forced To Pay After Ordering Raid On Blogger Who Criticized Him, at reason.com. This Sheriff should have been fired. Because of his position as sheriff, he had to know he was breaking the law. Since he is in a position of power, he should only get one strike and he’s out. It is not about him as much as it is about constraining other’s in positions of power who want to wield it against citizens.

Police Devise New Revenue Scam By Citing People Who Forget To Press Crosswalk Button, at thefreethoughtproject.com. These are the kind of petty rules that make people dislike cops. City councils should get rid of laws like this.

Forget The Violent Campus Protests – This College Cop Is Gunning For Unlicensed Hot Dog Vendors, at reason.com. Another example of a law that should not be on the books. Cops should be policing real crimes.

Police Serve Warrant To Wrong Address, Kill Man Who Lives There, at reason.com. I know that men are not perfect. We all make mistakes. But can you be sure you are at the right address! Put yourself in the shoes of the person whose door was broken down. Should the cops rules of engagement be like the military’s rules of engagement? Don’t fire until fired upon. Would a different type of person be attracted to the job if this was the rule of engagement?

The Drug Whisperer’: Drivers Arrested While Stoned Cold Sober, at wltx.com. The cop is smarter than the ‘science’ of a blood test? This has to be a violation of a persons fourth and fifth amendment rights.

What Can Happen When You Try To File A Complaint Against Police Officers

There are millions of contacts between citizens and police each day. The vast majority turn out just fine. The bad situations are not the norm. But just because the bad situations are not the norm doesn’t mean they should to be swept under the rug by the people who are supposed to investigate them.

The video below shows cops attempting to stop complaints against their fellow officers from even being filed. These cops use straw man arguments, intimidation, lying, verbal sleight of hand, and force to stop people from filing complaints. By letting the bad cops go unpunished the bad behaviour is incentivized.

This video shows how people act when they identify themselves as members of a group and not as an individual.

If cops want to identify themselves as a group, people are going to gladly give them their wish. People will begin to identify all cops by the lowest common denominator of the group.

Cops have to purge themselves of their bad apples. Or their credibility will continue to erode.

The Breakdown Of The Rule Of Law

June 22, 2016

The breakdown of the rule of law leads to a breakdown of a civil society.

We define the rule of law as general rules, known in advance, and pertaining to the rulers as well as the ruled. Unfortunately the rule of law does not deter our politicians and government betters. They make micro managing laws that are so numerous we can’t possibly know them in advance. They act as a ruling aristocracy who are above the laws they make.

When we the masses don’t know the rules of the game, on the one hand, and see our rulers getting away with breaking them, on the other, we start to push back. At first we use our 1st amendment rights to free speech and peaceably to assemble, and petition the Government for a redress of grievances. The problem starts to escalate when this doesn’t produce a desired result. We then start to resist slowly at first. This leads to an escalation on the side of Government which than leads to a reciprocal escalation by us. We are now in an upward spiral of resistance – response – resistance.

Americans don’t like to be told what to do. Each person has a different level of tolerance toward Government coercion. More and more people are reaching their limit and we are witnessing the push back.

Although government has been usurping power for a century, it has really increased under the last three Presidents. President Obama has expanded the power of government more than Bush did and Bush expanded it more than Clinton did. The number of laws on the federal registry has grown so large, a motivated government lawyer can dig deep enough in the federal registry and find a law that you have broken. Where will this lead? I hope it can be resolved peacefully.

SOME EXAMPLES

Oklahoma Cops Find A New Way To Take People’s Money, at huffingtonpost.com. As bad as civil asset forfeiture laws are, this escalates it exponentially. The ability to seize assets by scanning a persons debit and bank cards at the spot of the arrest is against the fourth and fifth amendments of the Constitution.

4thThe right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects against unreasonable searches and seizures shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath of affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

5thNo person shall……. be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property without due process of law;…..

People will not stand for this.

Ex Missouri Cop Gets 4 Years For Tasering Teen and Dropping Him On His Face, at kansascity.com. Watch this video. This teens heart stopped because the cop held the taser on him for more than 20 seconds. This was far longer than what his training taught him. He than cuffed and dragged the teen to the curb where he dropped him face first on the concrete. The teen was put into an induced coma to relieve brain damage. Read the details in the article and watch the video.

In war some of the rules of engagement tell our military guys they are not allowed to fire until fired upon. This is in a war zone. What are the rules of engagement for police? Shouldn’t it be at least what our military guys have to fight under? Police aren’t in a war zone even though we are constantly told they are. My friend retired early from law enforcement because he couldn’t believe that the new officers were being taught that everyone was a criminal. When he got in law enforcement he was taught that he was there to serve the public.

The cop in this video escalated this situation right from the start. He tried to intimidate this teen and look what happened. I know this sounds like Monday morning quarterbacking but he went all tough guy right away and there is no turning back once he decided to travel down that road. If you start out in a non threatening way, you can always escalate to another level.

At some point either the cops or we have to stop this upward spiral of resist – response – resist.

Watch the video below. The child was treated better by the gorilla than teen was treated by the cop.

 

What The IRS Just Revealed Should Start A Wave Of OUTRAGE, at allenwest.com. The IRS used its power to keep people from exercising their rights to “peaceably assemble and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances“. Everyone is afraid of the IRS, ergo they can intimidate people easily. Even though working for the IRS isn’t a political position, there is an incentive for the IRS to protect big Government from anyone who wants to shrink it. Because if it wasn’t for big Government there would be no need for the IRS. Lois Lerner should be in jail, not enjoying her 6 figure “retirement” on the tax payers dime.

Wake Up America, by Andrew Napolitano, lewrockwell.com. Excerpt from the article. “Now the FBI wants access to everyone’s internet browser history, as long as its agents are looking for spies or terrorists; and again, it proposes that rather than present probable cause to a judge and seek a warrant as the Fourth Amendment requires, one FBI agent can be authorized to issue a search warrant to another.” Our congress is about to give the FBI this power! I’m reminded of a quote by Joseph Sobran; “The Constitution is no threat to our current form of government.”

Ugly Bloody Scenes In San Jose As Protesters Attack Trump Supporters Outside Rally, at washington.com. These are not protests against Trump (which are protected by the 1st amendment). These are rioters who are physically assaulting individuals and damaging private property, which is against the law. The cops stood and watched. Americans normally don’t act like this. This is how third world countries settle disputes.

Is the rule of law breaking down? You be the judge.

Political Correctness, A Civil Society, And The Rule Of Law

November 10, 2015

In my previous post we talked about how political correctness produces petulant people. Here is an example of what we talked about. In this video a person from the media is taking pictures of the protests at the University of Missouri. The students, and what appear to be adults, don’t like him being there. The interaction between the reporter and the people in the crowd is instructive in understanding the mentality of the crowd. I see two different kinds of people in the crowd. Some are acting like children, and others are acting like union guys on a picket line trying to intimidate a scab laborer.

It’s impossible to reason with ignorant children because there is no starting point on which to agree. And the only way to deal with bullies is to stand up to their intimidation. Unfortunately you can’t educate ignorance if the ignorant don’t want to be educated, and standing up to bullies can ultimately lead to a physical confrontation.

The reporter in the video shows us how difficult it is to educate ignorance and stand up to bullies. I tip my hat to his courage. Here is what he says to an ignorant lady who won’t listen, “Ma’am , ok ma’am, the first amendment, ma’am, ma’am, Don’t yell at me ma’am. The first amendment protects your right to be here, and mine.” Of course she didn’t hear him or wouldn’t listen to what he said.

Then the union like bullies try to intimidate him, and when he doesn’t back down they push a little harder.

Make sure you watch the last 20 seconds of the video to see how an “adult” acts when a different reporter tells her he doesn’t have to move. She says, “You need to get out, you need to get out, you need to get out, you need to get out.” Doesn’t that sound like a child repeating I want my mommy, I want my mommy, I want my mommy. Then she yells to the crowd, “Hey, who wants to help me get this reporter out of here. I need some muscle over here.” She showed she was childish and a bully.

CIVILIZED SOCIETY AND THE RULE OF LAW.

A civilized society can only function when there are behavioral standards that are accepted by a majority of its members. These standards are not top down rules from government, like the PC crowd wants to impose on people. These behavioral standards (how we treat each others), are passed down from previous generations. These societal norms evolved spontaneously over time because acting a certain way produced more cooperation and less conflict.

The break down of the rule of law is causing what we are seeing happen from Baltimore to the University of Missouri. If the rule of law is defined as “general rules, known in advance, and applying to the rulers as well as the ruled”. Than the breakdown of the rule of law is caused by government making laws that are micro managing, so numerous we can’t possibly know them in advance, and not applying to the rulers, only to the ruled.

As more rules are passed, Government power grows. As this power increases, individuals outside of government, begin to see opportunities to lobby bureaucrats and politicians to achieve their goals.

It’s not just the PC crowd who want to use government to push an agenda. People from crony capitalists, to environmental crazies, are trying to use the power of government law making to force others to comply with their ideas.

What we are seeing is the correction for giving the government too much power. The best possible solutions for most of our problems, or perceived problems, are not found in one size fits all decisions by third party Government bureaucrats and politicians. The best possible solutions to problems are revealed when individuals voluntarily cooperate. We have traveled so far down this road that I fear the correction will have a high cost in strife between people. I hope I’m wrong.

What’s The Rule Of Law, by Walter E. Williams

December 16, 2014

Walter E. Williams recent article asks the question, What’s The Rule Of Law (read here)?

If the rule of law is defined as 1) general rules, 2) known in advance, and 3) applying to the rulers as well as the ruled; than the breakdown of the rule of law is caused by government, 1) making laws that are micro managing, 2) so numerous we can’t possibly know them in advance, and 3) not applying to the rulers, only to the ruled.

When our Government betters think of themselves as being exempt or above the law, and act in a way that flaunts this attitude, regular people will start to push back against such lawlessness by disregarding laws. (There are examples in the related articles below). Here are some excerpts from the article by Dr. Williams.

“President Barack Obama said just before the recent Ferguson, Missouri, riots, “First and foremost, we are a nation built on the rule of law.” Most Americans have little or no inkling of what “rule of law” means. Many think it means obedience to whatever laws legislatures enact. That’s a vision that has led to human tragedy down through the ages…….
“Let’s ask ourselves what the characteristics of laws in a free society should be. Let’s think about baseball rules (laws) as a way to approach this. Some players, through no fault of their own, hit fewer home runs than others. In order to create baseball justice, or what’s sometimes called a level playing field, how about a rule requiring pitchers to throw easier pitches to poorer home run hitters? Alternatively, we could make a rule that what would be a double for a power hitter is a home run for someone who doesn’t hit many homers…….
“You say, “Williams, you can’t be serious! Can you imagine all the chaos that would ensue: players lobbying umpires, umpires deciding who gets what favor, and lawsuits — not to mention violence?” You’re absolutely right. The reason baseball games end peaceably — with players and team owners satisfied with the process, whether they win or lose — is that baseball rules (law) are applied equally to all players. They’re fixed, and umpires don’t make up rules as they go along. In other words, baseball rules meet the test of “abstractness.” They envision no particular game outcome in terms of winners and losers. The rules that govern baseball simply create a framework in which the game is played……”
“Laws or rules in a free society should have similar characteristics………. Laws envision no particular outcome except that of allowing people to peaceably pursue their own objectives. Finally, and most importantly, laws are equally applied to everyone, including government officials”.

The Break Down Of The Rule Of Law

September 18, 2014

Law book library - stock photo

The rule of law is defined as, 1) general rules, 2) known in advance, 3) applying to the rulers as well as the ruled. How does the break down of the rule of law happen? Because there are too many rules to even count, the “general rules” part of the definition of the rule of law doesn’t exist. The increasing amount of rules makes it impossible to know them in advance. But the third part of the definition, applying to the rulers as well as the ruled, is the part that is starting to bother people. Abuses of power and corruption by individuals who are protected by their positions of power in Government are starting to result in a push back by the public.

Here are a couple of examples of Government agents abusing power.

1) TSA Officer Tries To Search Passenger After He Lands At Denver Airport.

This guy did a great job and could have walked away a minute before he did.

 

2) A Lesson In Police Escalation (here), at economicpolicyjournal.com.

If the cop was an NFL player and did this, he would be out of a job.

The result of what we see happening in the above clips will be a natural push back by the average citizen. The passenger walking away in the video above is an example of push back. We should all start peaceful non compliance because if we don’t, it will escalate into what you will see in these videos below. Both sides have to dial it back, because the cost of settling our differences through mob (thug) rule, on both sides, will be greater than if we settle our differences before we get to mob rule.

3) Angry Mob Throws Ukrainian Politician In Dumpster.

I can’t say I didn’t get a chuckle out of this video.

 

4) Airline Passengers Throw Elitist Politicians Off Plane, (here), at economicpolicyjournal.com.

A planes departure time was delayed for two hours as the crew waited for two Pakistani politicians to arrive. The passengers were so upset, they forced the politicians off the plane. I got a kick out of this one too.

These videos show each group using force against the other. The police side uses the sanctioned force of government, to enforce non general rules, that are not know in advance, and don’t apply to the rulers but must be obeyed by the ruled. The citizenry uses the perceived power of a larger group of people who are not going to back down. How far will this escalate before Government gives up a huge portion of it’s power?

SOME THOUGHTS ABOUT FERGUSON MISSOURI

*This is starting to remind me of the Duke rape case. It fits a preconceived narrative, until the facts finally come out.

*Why did the race hustlers and the media pick this particular story. Why didn’t they pick this story, Michael Blair Shot by Police in Fort Bend County Texas (watch video). {Family calls for help after their mentally ill son locks himself in the bathroom threatening to hurt himself}

*The break down of the rule of law starts when politicians and bureaucrats ignore the law that they mandate the citizens follow.  Citizens will start to defy the law, and a gradual escalation starts on both sides. This didn’t just start last week.

*It’s hard to believe anyone in this situation is telling the truth. The truth is the foundation not just of how we interact with each other, it is the foundation of our ethics, our morals, and the rule of law. When the foundation collapses, so does the structure that is built on it.

*Politicians, bureaucrats, and journalists are trying to separate us into as many groups as possible in order to pit us against each other. This allows them to control us by controlling the narrative. We have to understand that there are two and only two groups; 1) politicians and bureaucrats who have access to the sword government power, and 2) we who are expected to obey the sword of Government power. The American Revolution was fought to give the individual sovereignty over the Government. This has been flipped upside down, and it’s time to flip it back.
