Not picking on cops…

Just working my way up the chain…

This abomination needs to be ash-canned. Permanently. Peace Officers do not need up-armored vehicles, tanks, assault boats (yes, a municipality here in Kentucky actually got not one, but two RIB’s – Rigid Inflatable Boats – the kind the SEAL’s use…), grenade launchers, etc… the usual excuse is that they ‘need’ these things to combat up-armed gangs, because it’s so dangerous…. this, despite the very real fact that officers being shot and killed in the line of duty has been declining for decades and is currently at it’s lowest since 1970.

Cops are not the military. If you dress them like soldiers, equip them with military gear, give them up-armored military gear, with military grade weapons, they will begin to think and act like they’re in the military…

The infamous Zimbardo/Stanford Prison Experiment offers some insights into human behavior that backstops my above statement… just by dressing random students as prisoners and guards, they started falling into certain roles on their own, with no prompting whatsoever…

The experiment showed that one third of the guards began to show an extreme and imbedded streak of sadism…

Also – …none of the prisoners wanted to quit the experiment early, even when told that they would be denied their participation pay. The prisoners became institutionalized very quickly and adapted to their roles.

This isn’t downtown Kabul. You are not a Navy SEAL or an SF trooper or an “operator” – no matter what you and your buds call each other… you’re a cop. Dress and act the part.

The wicked flee when none pursueth..." - Proverbs 28:1
