    It's an attitude that is fertilizer for these kinds of abuses.

    •  what did you think power was all about? (7+ / 0-)

      Running around protecting people and stuff makes you the slave and them the master.

      I keep thinking about how to wage psychological warfare against the police: something perfectly legal, but goes down like a psychic gut punch.  I remember reading about how some kid just broke down around a cop thinking he was going to be arrested: I don't remember the details, needless to say it was an extreme overreaction on the kid's part (the cop may have been talking to his mom or something).  I got to thinking we should all train our kids to react that way: teach them to assume that cops are there to arrest you (forget this "protect and serve" shit) and phrase it in such a way that would reduce any child to screaming tears on sight (time out forever or something like that).  Refuse to patronize restaurants and such that are frequented by cops and make a point of walking out when a cop comes in for any reason.  If a cop ever has reason to talk to you, even off-duty and out of uniform, get down on your knees and put your hands behind your head and make a big passive-aggressive "I didn't want you to feel threatened." deal.

      Something's wrong when the bad guys are the utopian ones.
