'News and Views of a Frustrated Editor and His Featured Guests '

‘ Police Man Cometh ‘


The news has been released in Ferguson…..and the violence broke out….go figure!  First, how many did not see the grand jury decision coming?  Second, why would the decision be announced in the middle of the night?  Was the announcement intentionally announced at dark so the inevitable would be more vivid and dramatic video?

Just a few question that crossed my mind when I heard the announcement.  And then I got to thinking about back in August and the events after the shooting of Michael Brown……basically the response of the police and its tactics….

The recent militarization of the police should be disturbing to most Americans….even to the staunchest law and order conservative should be worried…..all this appears to be the beginning of a police state…..WHAT?

You read it right a police state……kinda on the mould of Orwell and 1984…..

But first…what is a police state?

1–a country in which the activities of the people are strictly controlled by the government with the help of a police force…..

2–a political unit characterized by repressive governmental control of political, economic, and social life usually by an arbitrary exercise of power by police and especially secret police in place of regular operation of administrative and judicial organs of the government according to publicly known legal procedures

Either definition could explain the happenings in Ferguson in August and after the decision…..but is there more signs than just some arbitrary definition?

Good question…..the police in the US have killed around 400 people with “justifiable” homicide………unlawful harassment of people, mostly minorities….children seen as criminals……stop and frisk laws……long imprisonment for ridiculous crimes………..Peaceful protest met with violence……….military and police sharing resources like intel gathering, training and equipment….finally, police do not face similar charges and sentences as civilians……all in all a birth of the American police state.

US is sending police officers to the best example of a police state for training….Israel.  Why if not to learn the control of the police over a population?

Of course the argument in support of the militarization of the police is that we live in a new era an era of danger and new tactics are needed to protect the people from danger……but think about that excuse…..how many times in history has some authoritarian muscle man used that excuse in some form or another?

The so-called ‘power of the people’ is waning and the people are allowing it in the name of security……

The American Police State has arrived on the back of massive apathy and fear.  That genie once out of the bottle will be hard to control.

There is an old saying that applies to what is happening in the US…..”Careful what you ask for….you may just get it”………..
