Ah yes America, land of where we get to pretend we have freedom and pay lip service to the idea that all men are created equal and they cannot be forced against their will…until the state tells you to shut up and comply. In most cases the state I am talking about are the jack booted thugs who call themselves police. The official definition is this:
police plural of po·lice (Noun)
The civil force of a federal or local government, responsible for the prevention and detection of crime and the maintenance of public order.
The actual definition is more like:
The paramilitary force of a federal or local government, responsible for ensuring compliance of citizens to the expected norms set by the state, ensuring terror and fear reign when necessary and rights belong to the protected classes. Additionally these forces are used to fine individuals and groups for the purpose of raising revenue for the parent organization they serve first and foremost.
You see, police aren’t there for you. They aren’t there to solve crimes, prevent crimes, or maintain “public” order. Their purpose is to serve their masters, the government for which they work. If they are told to raid your home without a warrant, who are you to stop them, they have the force of the government behind them. They’ll kill you dead and sort out who was right and who was wrong years down the road, just ask the victims at Ruby Ridge.
In this instance, the police use a Constitutionally illegal road block or DUI checkpoint to run through massive amounts of people to find if someone is breaking the law. Some would say that is prevention of crime, but what if they catch no one, then it is just the violation of the constitutional rights of hundreds, every single innocent person they singled out was stripped of their constitutional rights without any due process, and most of them let it happen. But watch the video and see what happens when one person objects to the treatment.
Oh see the look when they finally notice they have been captured stomping all over the right of this citizen, they even say he is innocent and knows the constitution…but that doesn’t stop him from being detained and searched illegally. Funny how that works. I hope the rest of you had a great Independence Day weekend, I know for the most part I did too. But from now I’ll be back protecting my First Amendment right with this blog.
