Our policing in this society arose from slave patrols and evolved not much from that point on. The police exist to serve the aristocracy and protect them and their extracted and concentrated wealth/property from the rest of us who perform the labor that allows them to amass such fortunes.

The power structure knows full well it has lost all semblance of legitimacy. Societal wealth is extracted at home to maintain the outer reaches of empire abroad as we occupy the planet militarily for the benefit of the Wall Street/donor/”job creator” class to insure their access to the resources of other nations in endless wars of profit.

Militarized police depts., corporate for profit prisons with convict labor leasing and stocks traded on Wall Street is the corporate state’s idea of a jobs program. As societal wealth is further and further concentrated into the hands of fewer and fewer, poverty will require criminalizing, and the system can turn $40-50K per head, per year on the incarcerated. Couple that with the fact that citizens in the US no longer have a guarantee of Habeas corpus, and all this blathering on about fweedumb is for those who cannot bear to face the truth.

This why I chuckle when I hear people say that the cops and military will never turn on the citizens.

This is not a problem in other first world countries. Why is it such a problem in the USA?

Cop handled this terribly. Commands were too difficult. This guy has NO business being a cop.

Guilty of negligent homicide, in my opinion.

This is why I chuckle when I hear that cops and military will join citizens in some sort of “revolution” with all the second amendment lovers.

it's not a problem here either, just the whimpering of those who have see a boogeyman on every street corner. I'm a law abiding citizen, I've never had an unpleasant experience with law enforcement.
