Rollin' Like Sisyphus

The Fat, Donut-Glazed Blue Line

It’s a cookbook!

A blue on blue incident goes a long way toward illuminating the true nature of police:

That October 2011 confrontation made national headlines and eventually got Lopez fired. But Watts’ actions involving a fellow officer didn’t sit well with many in law enforcement, and not long after she made that traffic stop, she says, the harassment began. Random telephone calls on her cell phone. Some were threats and some were prank calls, including orders for pizza. Unfamiliar vehicles and police cars sat idling in her cul-de-sac. She was afraid to open her mailbox.
Watts suspected her private driver’s license information was being accessed by fellow officers, so she made a public records request with the Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles. It turned out she was right: over a three-month period, at least 88 law enforcement officers from 25 different agencies accessed Watts’ driver’s license information more than 200 times, according to her lawyer.

They insist that the police are here to protect us, except for all of the court rulings that assert they don’t actually have to bother to do so. But they should be afforded great latitude in the commission of their duties, because they are the Thin Blue Line between civilization and barbarism.
Except, of course they are nothing of the kind.
Every wonder why The Law goes after organized crime so hard?
It’s not because of the crimes, it’s because The Law doesn’t like the competition.
They are a state-sanctioned mafia with military-grade equipment, and they have no qualms about acting like it.
On the bright side, they’ll have Hellfire missile-laden drones soon.
Then the party really gets started.
