Four Swedish Cops on Vacation in New York Just Showed Americans What REAL Policing Looks Like posted 04/24/2015, 3:30 PM (The Free Thought Project)
[Category: Tyranny/Police State]


New York, NY– Four Swedish police officers vacationing in New York City were on the subway on Wednesday when a fight broke out. The train operator asked if there were any police riding who could help with the situation. The Scandinavian patrolmen were very soothing and non-aggressive as they de-escalated the situation instead of escalating it, the way we have seen so often from our own men and women in blue.

The officers were on their way to see a performance of Les Misérables when the train operator frantically asked for assistance. "Are there any police officers on the train?!" the men heard over the intercom.
"We thought maybe someone needed help," Samuel Kvarzell, 25, a rookie with the Stockholm Police Department told the New York Post.
The Scandinavian patrolmen ran towards the front of the subway to help and encountered a brutal fight between two homeless men that had broken out. One of the men was reportedly attacking the other, as the injured victim made very little effort to defend himself.

After separating the aggressor off of the victim, the officers kept the aggressor detained in an arm lock while attempting to calm him using non-threatening voices and a soothing hand on the back.

“Take it easy, just relax, everything is going to be okay,” one of the officers tells the detained man while he frantically screamed that he couldn’t breathe. This seemed to calm him, and the officer asked if he was injured with a kind and gentle hand on his back. The officer seemed genuinely concerned about his well being.

There was no violence; there was no threat of violence, no cursing or raci

The Tyranny of Drug Laws posted 04/24/2015, 3:27 PM (Jacob G. Hornberger)

It is difficult to conceive of a greater violation of the principles of freedom than drug laws -- that is, laws by which the government punishes people who possess, distribute, or ingest drugs. A free society necessarily entails the right to engage in any peaceful activity, even if it is considered self-destructive, harmful, or irresponsible.

Thus, it's not surprising that drug laws are an inherent part of totalitarian regimes. A good example is China, where the country's communis
