ASSHOLE 101 - SADISTIC, OFFICIOUS, SELF JUSTIFYING COP MIND SET THAT MAKES COPS FLARE UP AND BEAT THE SAWDUST OUT OF YOU!
HOW NEVER TO LIGHT A COP'S CANDLE! I have a redheaded, spunky girlfriend who got beat up by an L.A. cop trying to give her a traffic ticket. She didn't feel she'd done anything. It escalated. I have a friend --a man --who was a vegan, who had a strange hippie look to his gaunt face and drove old cars. He also got beat up by maybe the same L.A. Cop over a car search not a ticket. Both of them got their faces seriously rearranged. Somehow they triggered the centurion's freak out button and it's a button real close to the surface. Pass this on to anyone who drives, who might ...enrage a cop or if traveling abroad, a soldier. Carlos Castaneda once got caught in a dragnet in southern Mexico, border of Guatemala. He was building a mansion there, but the cops didn't know who he was. Don Juan and Axtlan and all. The Guatemalan death squads had rounded up a suspicious bunch and there is the millionaire author of DON JUAN and the death squad all had their guns out and Carlos said 'if the itch had just been a little south on his finger, he'd have shot me dead. That was the closest I've ever been to death." And from a man who took that much peyote...that must have been close. These same cops killed entire villages in QUICHE province, every man, woman child, macheting babies and dogs so as not to leave noise. Thousands of people. Just google the world "QUICHE Massacre". Now, as we face civil unrest during the GREAT DEPRESSION yawning ahead, learn how not to light a cop's candle. You've done it before when BOSS caught you, charm, wit, kindness, obsequiousness, saying " you're right, I'm sorry" a lot, oily slavishness, head nodding, eyes closing and opening a lot as if you were digesting the great and much needed lesson they are giving you.
Learn from a man who was just a tad stiff-necked and was murdered by the side of the road
Found online: "There once was a famous mathematician named Archimedes who was rightly revered for his many imperishable contributions to science! A brainoid. But oddly, he could also be considered the first recorded victim of lethal police brutality. A native of Syracuse, (not New York, GREECE) Archimedes did his considerable best in the doomed but worthy effort to repel Roman invaders. So he was an activist, too. Following the conquest, Roman soldiers were dispatched to "pacify" the restive streets of the newly conquered city. Very touchy soldiers, too.
One afternoon, so the story goes, Archimedes was sitting inoffensively at the side of a street drawing geometric equations in the sand when some mouth-breather in Roman military garb trod heedlessly on the improvised tablet, ruining the elderly scientist's calculations.
By this time, the venerable physicist was in his ninth decade, and he saw no point in enduring this act of thoughtless vandalism by an armored imbecile to pass without protest.
"Please don't disturb my circles," Archimedes insisted in what was probably a direct but polite tone of voice.
Like law enforcement officers who would follow in his footsteps - albeit in jackboots rather than sandals - the Roman soldier took offense that a mere civilian, and an elderly one at that, would demand deference from
someone wearing the uniform and insignia of authority.
If the technology had been available, the Roman quite likely would have given Archimedes a "ride on the Taser." Instead, the thug withdrew his sword and summarily killed him.
Some might object that this crime was committed by a soldier in an
occupying army, not by a civilian police officer. That objection has
merit, if only to underscore what should be an obvious fact: Our
militarized government police force is an army of occupation.
Ask any of the thousands of people annually who are beaten or murdered
by police for no reason. Google search terms, "beaten by police" or
"victim of police brutality" Do it at the NEWS section too. Create a
GOOGLE ALERT so that every headline comes to your daily.
It makes little difference whether law enforcement personnel are of the
federal or "local" variety, or whether they are dressed in
quasi-civilian attire or kitted out in full paramilitary drag. American
civilians are generally expected to render to law enforcement personnel
the kind of docile submission that Archimedes - at the price of his life
- refused to offer the Roman soldier who was patrolling his neighborhood
Under the martial law mind-set, civilians are to give instant and
unqualified obedience to any armed individual in a state-issued costume.
I had plenty of experience with this attitude while living in Guatemala
under martial law following the 1983 military coup that ousted
CIA-installed President Efrain Rios Montt.
Anybody who has spent any time in airports since 9-11 will likewise
recognize that mentality. And Portuguese-born Canadian citizen Desiderio
Fortunato can testify about the treatment one can expect if he insists
on rudimentary courtesy from the anencephalic knuckle-draggers who act
as border guards for the Department of Homeland Tyranny.
Mr. Fortunato resides in British Columbia and maintains a part-time home
in Washington State. He regularly crosses the border separating
quasi-socialist Canada into the quasi-fascist U.S.A.
Like many people, he resents being treated like a criminal or a
domesticated animal; unlike most, he actually does something about it -
specifically, he insists that border guards display a particle of
courtesy when issuing instructions to people driving through the border
This takes a certain admirable temerity of the sort one wouldn't expect
in a 54-year-old professional jazz dancer, but such is Fortunato's
honest profession, and such is his disposition.
According to Fortunato, he has often chided Canadian border guards by
asking them to say "please" when telling him to shut off his motor or
perform other tasks. This request is generally honored, often with a
sheepish grin - on the Canadian side of the border, that is.
Last week, during a crossing into the United States, Fortunato was
gruffly instructed to turn off his engine by a tax-fattened time-server.
"Excuse me sir - `please,'" Fortunato replied. It would have taken a
tiny fraction of a single second to honor that reasonable request. But
had the border guard done so he would have been deferring to a mere
mundane, someone not clad in the sacred vestments of the Most High and
Holy State. So the ill-tempered drudge escalated his demands, finally
threatening to assault Fortunato with pepper spray.
Fortunato - showing that, in the language of Louis L'Amour, he had more
"sand" than an entire concert hall full of Republican Chickenhawks -
stood his ground. So the thug pepper-sprayed him, and, with the help of
several of his fellow trough-swillers, gang-tackled and handcuffed the
middle-aged professional dancer. Fortunato was held for three hours
before being released - without apology - into Canada.
Let's be clear about something: This had absolutely nothing to do with
protecting the borders of the United States from terrorists or any other
threat. An actual terrorist would go out of his way to be inconspicuous.
The assault on Fortunato was intended to punish him for failing to
display proper submissiveness to the Man In The Uniform.
"Our officers will give direct orders or commands to passengers,"
explained Mike Milne, a spokesdrone for the Customs and Border
Protection (CPB) agency. "It is the obligation of the passenger to be
compliant with those." (Emphasis added.) The same point was made by Tom
Schreiber, CPB Staffelführer in Blaine, Washington: "This is not a
situation where we're asking; this is a situation where we're ordering
you to do that." (Emphasis added.)
Once again: Whenever a civilian is told that he is subject to the
"orders" of someone in uniform, martial law exists.
A few weeks before Fortunato was treated to a chemical-weapon assault by
the heroic guardians of our sacred northern frontier, a photographer
named Robert Taylor (no, not that Robert Taylor) was accosted by a
police officer while attempting to take a photo of a train.
"The cop wanted my ID, and I showed it to him," Taylor told the New York
Times. "He told me I couldn't take the pictures. I told him that's not
true, that the rules permitted it. He said I was wrong. I said, `I'm
willing to bet your paycheck.'"
Of course, Taylor was right and the tax-gobbler was wrong: The
photographer was able to call up the relevant transit authority rule on
his BlackBerry. But that didn't end the matter, of course.
A police sergeant materialized and immediately began lying on behalf of
his subordinate: The sergeant insisted that their rules were different
from those of the transit authority, a claim intended - once again - to
get Taylor to yield to those garbed in the accoutrements of the State's
Taylor wasn't having any of it. "I [told the sergeant], `If you feel I'm
wrong, give me a summons and I'll see everyone in court.' The sergeant
told them to arrest me." The photographer was handcuffed and given a
batch of summonses, all of them spurious and most of them quickly
The one significant charge the police insist on pressing is "disorderly
conduct," which supposedly took the form of speaking to the officers in
an "unreasonable voice." "Unreasonable" in this instance refers to a
tone of voice other than one associated with timid, cringing submission.
This is the same supposed offense that got Archimedes killed, and led to
the assault on Desiderio Fortunato: Mr. Taylor refused to behave like a
whipped dog when confronted by an armed bureaucrat. In fact, he insisted
on treating the officers as equals before the law, rather than the
incarnation of The Law.
Martial law exists anywhere an individual can find himself arrested,
assaulted, or murdered simply for insisting on being treated as a free
man. The 2006 murder of Michael Kreca in San Diego provides the most
compelling example I've seen that such a condition exists - albeit in a
latent form - wherever government police are found.
Kreca, a gentle and unassuming man and accomplished writer specializing
in freedom-related issues, was walking in Sorrento Mesa one morning in
when he was accosted by two police officers - Officer Samantha Fleming
and Sgt. Elmer Edwards - who claimed they had heard gunshots. Kreca
replied that he had not been shooting and hadn't heard gunfire.
He consented to a body search (during which his arms were physically
restrained by the officers) that turned up, in the waistband of his
baggy casual clothes, a 9mm pistol the Navy veteran carried for personal
According to the official police account, Officer Fleming told Kreca
that she was going to handcuff him "for her safety."
"No, you're not going to do that," replied Kreca. "Let me go; I want to
Bear in mind that Kreca had consented to a pat-down search, something he
wouldn't have done if he harbored violent intentions toward the
officers. They had no reason to treat Kreca as a threat, much less to
arrest him - apart from the arrogant assumption, typical of their
professional tribe, that a civilian in possession of a firearm is a
As Kreca tried to leave, a needless and pointless scuffle ensued. It
ended when Sergeant Elmer Edwards valiantly placed his gun against
Kreca's chest and fired twice, killing him.
Predictably, an official inquiry found that Sgt. Edwards "acted within
the law," since California statutes permit police "to use deadly force
to protect themselves and members of the public from serious injury or
death.." The same report by the District Attorney acknowledged that
"Irrespective of any laws applicable to situations where peace officers
use deadly force in accomplishing their duties, the law of self-defense
is available to any person" and that homicide is justifiable "when
resisting an attempt by a person to commit grave bodily injury or to
kill any person."
This observation was intended as a supplemental defense for the officers
who murdered Kreca, since Sgt. Edwards insisted that he was afraid Kreca
was reaching for his gun. This made no sense, given that Kreca was
confronting two armed individuals and hadn't resisted at all until the
police threatened to shackle him.
And it shouldn't be forgotten that the kill-shots were executed with the
gun in the victim's chest, not by an officer diving for cover in fear
for his or her life.
Furthermore, after the police murdered Kreca they found that his gun
wasn't loaded - which means that he couldn't have shot them even if he
had wanted to. So the "justifiable homicide" defense here is based on
the subjective impression on the part of Sgt. Edwards that Kreca was
going to shoot him and his partner with an empty gun. That assumes, of
course, that Edwards' account of the shooting itself wasn't perjury,
which is never a safe assumption in incidents of this kind.
Kreca had much more to fear from the police than they had to fear from
him. The proof of this proposition resides in the simple fact that he is
dead, and his murderers continue to pollute the earth.
"The truth is told by whoever is left standing," explained Tom Zarek,
Battlestar Galactica's resident arch-Machiavel, after he presided over
the massacre of his political opponents. Kreca is dead, his murderers
agree on a cover story, and those with the authority to prosecute the
crime have accepted that account as the "truth."
In practically every jurisdiction in this once-free land, it is a
"criminal offense" - and often a felony - to disarm a "peace officer."
Why isn't it a crime to disarm a law-abiding citizen?
Michael Kreca's only "crime" in this affair was his failure to display
the docility of an ancient Spartan helot - that is, a member of class
not protected by law, and subject to summary execution at the whim of
the Krypteia (ancient Sparta's militarized secret police).
Every encounter between civilians and the state's armed enforcers has
the potential to escalate into an episode of state-inflicted lethal
violence. If we permit them - and only our principled resistance,
peaceful where possible, but forceful where necessary, is the only thing
that will stop them - those who presume to rule us intend to reduce us
to abject helotry. And the question is not whether this will happen,
since it's already taking place. The real question is what can we do about it?"
THE ANSWER IS, google up search terms "police brutality" or "beaten by police"
at GOOGLE NEWS. You'll get a daily mailout from them reporting all police
brutality. Do activism in your city on that cop's actions. Make it unstylish to lose
your glue at unarmed citizens. Here's a 15 year old girl the cops beat up:
