Across the nation, pigs increasingly feel as though they have the right to beat us into submission and to execute us in the street. That is our fault. People excuse pig behavior, in this case by saying dead man was selling contraband or he resisted arrest and in other cases by pointing to this or that law the cop-assaulted or cop-killed person broke or something they said or did wrong.
So what?!?! Selling illegal tobacco isn't a crime that carries a death sentence in this country, nor is resisting arrest. Just like many of the other situations that cops feel merit a street execution, like refusing to stop when pulled over or halt when told to do so. Refusing to pull over or even trying to outrun the pigs – that gets a bunch of traffic tickets, a big ol' stack of 'em. It gets fines and more fines, loss of license and maybe even some jail time, perhaps prison if someone was hurt during the process. What, under the law, it does not get is the death penalty.
Just like when the dog shootings started and went unpunished, they steadily increased to becoming quite common, so too have the incidents of assaulting and killing people. We have allowed a seriously dangerous situation to develop. And, without direct, like we the people really mean it sort of action, it will continue to get worse, more dangerous.
These assaults and murders are not police work, but something else entirely. They are intimidation and terror tactics used by totalitarian regimes, by governments seeking to establish the maximum degree of control possible over a population. We, as a people, should already have put a halt to it. However, better late than never. The moment we – even just 20 percent or so – refuse to pay and refuse to comply, it stops.
