Why I Don't Need To Call A Crackhead Instead Of A Cop: A False Dichotomy Dismantled posted 01/27/2015, 8:21 PM (Seeing Through The Fog)
[Category: Commentary]
A couple of weeks ago, cops and their supporters started circulating sarcastic little memes about “The next time you need help, call a crackhead.” They thought they were really clever and putting anyone who dared to question police for any reason in their place. Really that’s an irrational emotional response worthy of a 12 year old. Let me lay some real logic and reasoning on you.

That statement is a false dichotomy. It suggests that the two options it puts forward are the only two available to people. They aren’t. Rather than calling a crackhead or a cop or a neighborhood or community I could hire my own security guards. By doing this I could negotiate directly with them for for how much they get paid. They could be paid by me directly instead of living off my tax dollars. I could also screen them for myself instead of having it being done by someone else. Someone who may be stupid, corrupt, or have their own agenda. I would be deciding on whether they had the intelligence and moral fiber I was looking for to do the job right. They would be accountable directly to me. If I’m not happy with their performance I don’t have to settle for filing a complaint and having their brother officers investigating them and deciding they did nothing wrong. I can fire their asses on the spot. They can’t invoke special privileges like cops do.

I could hire two, one to protect my home and one to follow me everywhere I go. I get to decide what their duties are. I tell them what their job is instead of thousands of pages of laws, most of which are garbage. My home security guard won’t bring his friends to my home with automatic weapons to break down my door, shoot my dogs, throw a flash bang grenade in my baby’s crib, shoot my wife between the eyes, and kidnap me and throw me in a rape cage. All because I had the sheer AUDACITY to make a personal choice about what I put in my body. And I chose a plant that anyone on God’s green earth can grow on their win
