    is the mind-killer.  Riot cops fear disorder.  They know that they will go home afterwards as long as they stand shoulder to shoulder and keep everything in front of themselves.

      place and welded by guilt into a nefarious association. The process is the same as for the mafia. It's triagulatory.

      A tasks B and B whacks C or B risks getting whacked himself.  Since C is not whacking back, the safer course is for B to do as he's told. Both obedience and prudence dictate following orders. What needs to be addressed is the As handing the orders out.

      Once we peal back all the layers, it's the citizens ,who didn't object when the policies and procedures and weapons purchases were agreed to, where the buck stops.
      That they were lied to and kept in the dark is an excuse and a valid one. That they've been trained to accept blame for being innocent is also a valid excuse. And that, now that it's coming out, they are standing up and saying "no more," is good.
