    They rule with our consent. Right now pigs like the ones that attacked this unarmed woman, and that's what they are, don't have my consent to enforce the law. They earned the title "pig" by committing horrible crimes like this.

    We do need cops, and there's the problem. We can't trust the ones we have, and that is a major problem.

    But cops seem to have little interest in changing, and there's a segment of peeople who think that those who criticize cops are vermin, scum, "the same as same as Stormfront fucks", the same as Westboro, and "not normal people". Those people enable this system and squash any attempt at reconciliation ro meaningful dialogue.

    If there are good cops, where are they? Where are the cops speaking up to denounce the assault against this woman?

    Some would say that I'm off my gourd. I would say that I am a gourd.
