The Rapist Doctrine vs. the Tom Joad Test posted 08/20/2014, 1:53 AM (William Norman Grigg)
[Category: Tyranny/Police State]
"Don't resist -- it will only be worse for you." That's the message of both the rapist and the police officer, as candidly digested by Sunil Dutta, a 17-year veteran of the LAPD who now preaches that doctrine as a professor of homeland security at Colorado Tech University.

Whenever a Mundane is approached by a member of the state's punitive priesthood, Dutta explains, "here is the bottom line" from the perspective of the privileged aggressor: "[I]f you don't want to get shot, tased, pepper-sprayed, struck with a baton or thrown to the ground, just do what I tell you. Don't argue with me, don't call me names, don't tell me that I can't stop you, don't say that I'm a racist pig, don't threaten that you'll sue me and take away my badge. Don't even think of aggressively walking towards me" (which would mean, apparently, that if the Mundane obeys a command to approach the officer he had better not frighten the timid creature giving the orders by complying too enthusiastically).

To that litany, he might had added: Don't think of walking away from me, either, because that act is also considered "aggression" by a police officer; don't place one foot behind the other, or crouch even to the slightest degree, because this will be defined, after the fact, as "assuming a fighting stance"; don't flinch or recoil from the officer when he batters you, because this can be, and often has, been defined as "assault on an officer"; if the officer throws you to the ground and starts to choke you, don't defend yourself, or you can be charged with "attempted murder."

"Most field stops are complete in minutes," coos the apologist for state-licensed aggressive violence. "How difficult is it to cooperate

What If the Military or CIA Had Killed Mike Brown? posted 08/20/2014, 1:50 AM (Jacob G. Hornberger)
[Category: Commentary]
While the facts surrounding the police killing of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, must still be determined, one thing is clear: If it turns out that the killing was not justified, the law dictates that he is subject to being criminally indicted and also to being sued in a civil action for wrongful death by Brown's survivors.

Not so, however, if the killing had come at the hands of the military or the CIA. In that case, the soldier or the CIA agent would be immune from crimina
