The Police are scary.
Did anyone see 'Coppers' on Channel four on Monday night? If you missed it, catch up here. I've watched most of the programmes so far and, to be honest, none were any surprise to me. Particularly Monday's episode. Although it was scary, it was no surprise.
It focussed this week on the frontline cops who deal with protests, public order etc. The ones who dress up like a paramilitary robo-cop and get off on batoning those who dare to use their right to protest.
It was scary because of the type of person that have become police officers and ended up on the front line. The bullying type with a few 'issues'.
Our police have now become their police. A tool of the state to be used against us and it was plain to see that the officers themselves have totally absorbed themselves within the logic of the state. The police are part of our enemy.
You probably read Inspector Gadget's blog. I have noticed a shift in attitude by him and his police buddy commenters. In many posts he laments the fact that the police are ill equipped to deal with public order offences and his commenters agree with him. They pine for plastic bullets, water cannon and tear gas to keep us, the great un-washed, in our place. They also have called for the police to be routinely armed.
It is very simple. The police are our enemy and should be treated as such. They care nothing for you or your family. They are part of the state apparatus that requires dismantling.
