Congress Proposes Bill to Address the Problem of Immunity for Killer Cops posted 12/16/2014, 11:15 AM (The Free Thought Project)
[Category: Tyranny/Police State]
Washington DC – The grand jury system that is used to judge cases of police misconduct, has come under heavy public scrutiny in recent weeks, after a string of high profile acquittals for killer cops.

For decades police have attacked, robbed and murdered innocent people with immunity, and have been able to avoid even standing trial because they have been shielded by the grand jury process. This happens every single day in America.

However, recently with police under

"Once, I remember, I ran across the case of a boy who had been sentenced to prison, a poor, scared little brat, who had intended something no worse than mischief, and it turned out to be a crime. The judge said he disliked to sentence the lad; it seemed the wrong thing to do; but the law left him no option. I was struck by this. The judge, then, was doing something as an official that he would not dream of doing as a man; and he could do it without any sense of responsibility, or discomfort, simply because he was acting as an official and not as a man. On this principle of action, it seemed to me that one could commit almost any kind of crime without getting into trouble with one's conscience.

Clearly, a great crime had been committed against this boy; yet nobody who had had a hand in it — the judge, the jury, the prosecutor, the complaining witness, the policemen and jailers — felt any responsibility about it, because they were not acting as men, but as officials. Clearly, too, the public did not regard them as criminals, but rather as upright and conscientious men.

The idea came to me then, vaguely but unmistakably, that if the primary intention of government was not to abolish crime but merely to monopolize crime, no better device could be found for doing it than the inculcation of precisely this frame of mind in the officials and in the public; for the effect of this was to exempt both from any allegiance to those sanctions of humanity or decency which anyone of either class, acting as an individual, would have felt himself bound to respect — nay, would have wished to respect. This idea was vague at the moment, as I say, and I did not work it out for some years, but I think I never quite lost track of it from that time." - Albert Jay Nock, "Anarchist's Progress", The American Mercury (1927); § III : To Abolish Crime or to Monopolize It?

[Category: Economy]

“The truth is that the State is a conspiracy designed not only to exploit, but above all to corrupt its citizens.” — Leo Tolstoy

My 7-year-old granddaughter has suddenly developed a keen interest in card games: Go Fish, Crazy Eights, Old Maid, Blackjack, and War. We’ve fallen into a set pattern now: every time we play, she deals the cards, and I pretend not to see her stacking the deck in her favor. And of course, I always lose.

[Category: Tyranny/Police State]
We are constantly reminded via politicians, television, and the mainstream media in general of just how brave those "boys in blue" are to work in such "dangerous" conditions. The thin blue line, we're told, is akin to storming the beaches at Normandy.

But do these claims of mass danger and death hold water? Is it really necessary to smash an elderly woman's face into the ground, so you can "make it home to your wife and kids"?
