This hits close to home. A few months back I experienced one of the most terrifying events in my life when a road pirate from the Seymour MO police department stopped me for an expired tag. (An offficer Mullins) Most of the physical injuries took a week to heal, but I will be dealing with the psychological damages for a long time to come. Rape victims often experience depression, and need counseling. Do not think for a moment that this was not a rape of my rights, my humanity, and my person. That was exactly what it was. Some day I will be able to write about it.
If you have been reading this paper then you also know that I was assaulted by a business owner in Seymour a month back and the predictably incompetent police department has not even contacted me concerning their so called investigation. IMHO if they can’t steal someone’s money, or get an illegitimate felony bust, they are not interested. Protecting your rights is the very last things that police departments are interested in. I have had conversations with the past 2 mayors of Seymour, and suggested that they either get rid of the police department or at the very least replace it with a contracted private police department. ( and here) As it stands all police departments stand behind the principle of “Sovereign Immunity” which is clearly a form of moral relativism, one of the major platforms of the Church of Satan. That is a fact, not a wild unsubstantiated claim. If we are to take the Declarations claim that “all men are created equal” , a cornerstone that this country was founded upon, we need to recognize that having a class of men with more rights than others is both immoral and evil on it’s face.
It was VERY telling that Mullins like a sexual predator that has just finished raping a victim, asked me with the leading question: “Why don’t you like cops?” Isn’t that almost the same thing that rapists ask their victims? i.e. “Did you enjoy it?”
It’s not that I don’t like cops like Rapist-Mullins. It’s that I don’t like criminals that violate my rights. Just like at Auschwitz, a Legislator putting words on paper do not excuse your committing crimes.
“Quit resisting.”—Cops yell at compliant young man who was thrown to the ground, beaten, arrested and hospitalized for severe injuries to his face and arm, allegedly in retaliation for “resisting arrest” by driving to a safe, well-lit area before submitting to a traffic stop for a broken tail light
We’ve all been there before.
You’re driving along and you see a pair of flashing blue lights in your rearview mirror. Whether or not you’ve done anything wrong, you get a sinking feeling in your stomach.
You’ve read enough news stories, seen enough headlines, and lived in the American police state long enough to be anxious about any encounter with a cop that takes place on the side of the road.
For better or worse, from the moment you’re pulled over, you’re at the mercy of law enforcement officers who have almost absolute discretion to decide who is a threat, what constitutes resistance, and how harshly they can deal with the citizens they were appointed to “serve and protect.”
This is what I call “blank check policing,” in which the police get to call all of the shots.
So if you’re nervous about traffic stops, you have every reason to be. — Read More
