WASHINGTON — The Senate Thursday added $600 million to the effort to try and slow the flow of illegal smuggling of drugs and humans across the U.S. Mexican border. The money the bill will provide is to be used for adding 1,500 new enforcement agents and deploying unmanned aerial drones to improve border surveillance. More

When cops become a street gang….

This letter was received by J. Speer-Williams after his recent article entitled “Are cops more criminal than criminals“?  Since we published that article, many comments and stories have come in regarding the rise of fear across the country, of our law enforcement agencies.  Most law enforcement agencies are no longer the protector of the people and instead of instilling respect and admiration, inspire fear and loathing.  This is a very sad state of affairs.

Dear Mr.Williams:

Writing about, or even dwelling on this, causes me extreme rage and anxiety. During flashbacks, which have happened perhaps five times in my life, I usually run away and hide somewhere. Usually these spells only happen if I am physically attacked. When I come back to myself, I am usually completely lost, miles from where I was before. Usually, I am also injured, sometimes not in an insignificant way.
 
I am afraid, naturally, that if I am seen by law enforcement in this state, I might be perceived as dangerous and, well, you know what happens in this case. Even here, my postman was killed with two shotgun blasts to the chest because he threatened to kill himself with a kitchen knife. The policeman who murdered him, a known dangerous psychopath to people who have known him all his life, naturally is still on the force. And yes, this individual took steroids and is built like a large draft horse, only more stupid. Everyone here, except the wealthy, lives in fear of the police, and indeed the entire “establishment” that enables them.
 
What your article does not say, but only implies, is the destruction of society caused by having a psychotic paramilitary force attacking any vestige of real community, should it form. We are rather rapidly becoming Afghanistan. The police, who used to be respected members of communities, are now an outside force attacking everyone and pitting everyone against all others. They only exist to protect the property of the rich and powerful. More
