It has to end now.
Who Rules You and how?
If the government cannot protect our lives… Why are you in the armed forces fighting for a democracy that you don’t have at home?” “Why are you in the armed forces of America going overseas to fight someone that never did a thing to you then act pitifully when your own people are shot down in front of you?”
Terrorism within the United States has many avenues of inhumanity and inequality. The militant policing system, which is under the Department of Justice, is one of these avenues. The inhumanity is not in the Americans being tortuously murdered, beaten unmercifully, shot at, teargassed, stunned with Tasers, attacked by police-trained dogs, hosed with fire department equipment, and wrongfully arrested and incarcerated. The inhumanity is in this crooked system of government and “law enforcement” that endorses such terrorism and the use of military vehicles and equipment in civilized American cities. called Krav Maga.
Throughout America’s history, the majority of the victims of the mass organized ruthlessness have been unarmed and defenseless. The endless list of victimizations include the genocide of Indian Americans and the robbery of their land, war with Mexicans and the robbery of their land, bringing Africans to this land shackled and naked in insanitary slave ships, beating and raping them, Jim Crow, Ku Klux Klan terror, lynching, no respect for people of color while and after fighting your wars, continuous poverty and discrimination, police terrorism during the Civil Rights era, and police brutality and murder to this day.
Police in the UK do not carry weapons. What does this say about the lack of respect for life in America?

The first government-licensed police agencies in America were 18th century slave patrols, which were authorized to arrest both fugitive slaves and “disorderly” people of all descriptions.
Historian Philip L. Reichel recalls that slave patrols “had full power and authority to enter any plantation and break open Negro houses or other places where slaves were suspected of keeping arms … to punish runaways or slaves found outside their masters’ plantations without a pass … [and] to whip any slave who should affront or abuse them in the execution of their duties….”
Reichel points out that in 1778, the Georgia slave patrol’s duties were expanded to include arresting “all white persons who cannot give a satisfactory account of themselves and carry them before a Justice of the Peace to be dealt with as is directed by the Vagrant Act.”
From its inception, American “law enforcement” has been in the business of harassing harmless people, demanding that they present their “papers,” and violently abducting them if they cannot give a proper “accounting” of themselves to those who presumed to own them. Victims of 18th century slave patrols might be mystified by the accoutrements of contemporary police, astounded by the technology they can employ in the service of official coercion, and horrified by their capacity for unprovoked violence, often of the lethal variety. But they would recognize their role to be largely indistinguishable from that of the “patter-rollers” used to round up human beings who decided to flee from captivity.
Once it’s understood that contemporary police are the direct descendants of 18th and 19th century slave patrols, spectacles like the one that unfolded yesterday in Austin, Texas make perfect sense.
An avenue of inequality in the system is the automatic criminalization (“guilty until proven innocent”) of Americans based upon race and color. The inequality is also in the lack of punishment of policemen who commit these atrocities. Murderous police are most often rewarded with paid administrative leave for a short period, and returned to full-time duty. Policemen who commit brutality remain on the job with no discipline administered.
Every incident of police brutality and murder should be criminal misconduct. Police should not be above the law.
Victims of terrorist policemen are quickly demoralized and demonized by the policemen, themselves, and by the news media. The bodies of victims murdered by police have been abandoned at the scenes; survivors of the brutality are often jailed rather than hospitalized. This is immorality. Terrorist police cause untimely deaths, serious permanent injuries (physical, mental, and emotional), loss of income, and loss of jobs.
This government thrives on violence, both here and abroad! That is why we are continually engaged in war after war both physically and fiscally. This government has killed and continues killing millions and millions of people around the world — while we the people are told to be quiet, and be still, and continue being victims of the one-sided American terrorism, as we have been since this country’s inception.
