My life as a tyrant
#1
This is a great read.

Tyranny comes in many forms.

http://chrishernandezauthor.com/2013/01/...-a-tyrant/

"Keep in mind, I became a police officer because I wanted to be a good guy. Even though we’ve all seen reports of police brutality and corruption, I still believe we cops are the good guys. I’ve seen cops perform brave, selfless acts for strangers on countless occasions. Even the worst cops I’ve ever known would risk their lives to defend the innocent. But I have to say this anyway. Before you start throwing shoes, hear me out. I have a good reason for saying it.

If you think our police are no threat to your freedom, you’re living in a fantasy world.

Now I’ll explain what I mean. I worked for the United Nations Police Mission in Kosovo for eighteen months. I wasn’t there as a soldier. I was a civilian cop, living in town, basically a Kosovo PD officer. For part of my tour I worked patrol with a group of international officers and local police. We had officers from America, the UK, Germany and Greece, plus local Kosovar Albanians. The Americans were regular street cops from police departments all over the United States."

I have mixed feelings on this article. he tries to male the case that these are good people that are misled and are only following orders, while admitting that it is no defense for his actions, and then goes on to delete any comments referring to nazis...

I did not read the entire article, but the "I'm only doing my job" or "you should cooperate to make my job easier" is too often heard from those that are more than happy to violate your rights. Just look at all the videos from people crossing "immigration checkpoints" in the south west. Those agents have said repeatedly that they're just doing their job.

This is a guy who seems to have a problem with the whole "just doing my job" mentality.

A little more of the article.

"The founding fathers knew guys like me and Joe need to be controlled. They wrote the 4th Amendment so we would have to follow rules when we took people’s property. And they wrote the 2nd Amendment so that if we ever decided not to care about citizens’ rights, the citizens could forcibly change our minds."


"As I’ve said before, I don’t speak for anyone but me. Many, many cops will vehemently disagree with me about this (which might sort of prove my point). But I WANT law-abiding citizens to have guns. I WANT them to have a means to defend themselves from ME. I DON’T want the people I’ve sworn to defend worrying about Officer Joe and his friends taking their property on a whim. I feel ZERO threat, absolutely none, from lawfully armed good citizens.

This comes to mind, from the political cartoon thread:
