    I like cops in general. Most of them, I always thought, were basically decent working class guys who were doing a hard job keeping society safe. I was pleased that many policemen, beginning in Wisconsin, seemed to start to understand that our fight was also their fight.

    But this shit cannot go on like this. Any cop who engages in this kind of brutal, inhuman behavior automatically loses his 99% badge. At that point, he or she has stopped being part of the working class and has crossed a line, and has become nothing more than a foot soldier of the malefactors of great wealth. If even half of these stories are true, then any cop who participated in these atrocities has proven himself to belong in the company of mafia enforcers and Stasi thugs.

    The officials who initiate and order such policies, and the rank and file officers who put them into action, are no longer serving justice. They are unworthy of their salaries, their uniforms, their badges, their sidearms, and their titles. All of these should be stripped from them, so that they have no more opportunity to harm themselves or others with the power that so clearly has corrupted them and gone to their heads.
