Horrifying Abuse of Power

This. THIS right here is why I’m terrified of law enforcement officers. TERRIFIED. Because all it takes is one insecure, over-powered asshole’s power trip to hurt, maim, disfigure, or kill… and very rarely is there any true retribution when it does.

I can say, based on my few relatively brief and fairly benign dealings with the law alone that my healthy respect for the horrors they can bestow upon another human being taints a lot of what I publicly do and say… and that is a sad thing in America with it’s Land of the Free/Home of the Brave/Free Speech mantra.

I mean, fuck, my kids are so afraid of ANY POLICE OFFICER that they immediately start “becoming invisible,” warning others to steer clear, and reiterating that you cannot trust the officers when they see them… and they’ve only had one real dealing with them in their 9-years of life. ONE!

I’m not saying every cop is a bad cop. I’m not saying every interaction goes sideways… But it happens too often. TOO OFTEN!

Such betrayal and pain at the hands of someone touted to protect. What a disgusting police state we’ve become.

And don’t get me started on the justice system as a whole.
