You know, after all this stuff about Only Ones, I was really committed to defending cops and other law enforcement officers. I had obviously had my disagreements with other people about the nature of law enforcement, but was prepared to believe that a few bad apples didn’t spoil the barrel.
Until I saw the video that was emailed to me. I don’t know how this video got out, and why there isn’t a media firestorm over this. In the video, these….stormtroopers, for lack of a better word, shoot a fleeing suspect, cover up a murder/suicide, and generally spit in the face of everything that law enforcement and the police are supposed to stand for.
This is exactly the kind of behavior from the police that could spark a rebellion – where an alliance between citizens who will no longer stand for the depredations of their imperialist oppressors.
I have to warn you, the footage is graphic, which is why I’ve put it below the cut.
