Incidents of abusive police in Green Bay, Chicago, Los Angeles, and Albuquerque, along with the recent acquisition of armored personnel carriers by some civilian law enforcement, have many in the public concerned. “We’re gonna’ chase down them old ladies jay walking with a tricked out MilSurp Hummer with a Ma Duece sitting on top! Yee haw!”
A few weeks back I heard a young man in Price swear at a cop, calling him a Nazi. I have no idea what the issue was, but the cop either ignored it or didn’t hear it. Whatever. But truly, even now with the drastic increase of police abusing people, we cannot call cops “Nazis” and expect it to be accurate.
The Nazis did their thing against Romanians, Jews, the disabled, and the homosexuals, amongst others, for their Fuhrer. Their leader. Their master. And that is the difference.
The cops are not throwing people into gas chambers or ovens. Not even concentration camps. They are, however, beating up unarmed people who are time and time again proven to be innocent. In many instances, killing them.
If a regular citizen assaults a person and kills them for no reason, it’s murder. If a cop does it, it’s in the line of duty. Duty? Well, there is no national law saying they must do “this.” No leader saying they should. They have the U.S. and state constitutions, and standards set by the state P.O.S.T. Council. Which, so far, has shown too many times to be ineffective.
The Nazis did it out of loyalty to their leader. Cops, they have no such excuse – instead, they do it for a paycheck.
Loyalty to their country and their leader versus a paycheck – that does kind of make the Nazis look like a rather respectable bunch, doesn’t it?
How long until that happens here? How long until the law enforcement in our communities go “that direction”? What will local law enforcement do to prevent that from happening here?
This letter, in its entirety, is not just for the people in the community, but the candidates for the upcoming elections to consider.
