I distance myself from most libertarians in that I believe that the vast majority of us can co-exist (not in a stupid hippy way) with the police.
I believe that the police could have a moral purpose instead of servicing the whims of both their employers (non profict corporate entities including counties, cities, and states) and the legal environments (courts and the leeches they benefit).
Police have the opportunity to do what most people think they should be doing, (roughly constitutional concerns). I have mentioned that issues of transgression of property or being denied access to one’s property. (You would call this destruction of property or trespassing). I also mention actual physical assaults and personal issues like this.
Dealing with “Karen’s” stupid issues and fundraising opportunities (speeding tickets and DUI’s) have never been a fundamental focus. People are quick to forgive them and think that they are being served by them. The truth that we arent.
We are slowly starting to see that non criminals are starting to be targeted by law enforcement. (Law enforcement being used as hired toughs by tyrannical overseers). Law enforcement is more than safety. They are for their own safety. They decide what is over the thin blue line. And often, it is one random guy at the beach or a elderly black guy walking down the street with a golf club steadying him. Police are determining what their enemies are. It is no longer MS-13 or thugs. It turned into J Edgar Hippy or Grandpa Jenkins.
I dont want you to become enemies. The police in my community are human beings. Many of them are folks that love life and want the best for us all. But their silence is what creates an opportunity for chaos.
Im begging for them to take a principled stand and stop overreach. It takes not spacing out and playing ignorant like many LEO’s have. It takes not being a stereotype. Be enlightened and learning about who you work “with”. Fight against stupidity. For your safety and the safety of the public.
Let people be your customer and not subjects. Dont be the courts fundraising arm. Re-state your mission statement. Please be well and let people live their lives
