OTOH, if you enjoy tasing children, killing pets, and shooting unarmed mundanes, life in the enforcer class is very sweet indeed.

The problem here is the same we see with many other groups----because a small minority of an organization are bad apples, the entire organization is maligned. People create a lot of problems for themselves by not acting in a SMART manner.

Would Gandhi or Dr. King call police names?  I don't think so, and neither should we.

We've covered this a great many times. Might be true if the system or the supposed good guys actually did anything to stop or eliminate the "bad apples." It's not happening, and those bad apples seem to be increasing in number constantly. I don't hear any of the supposed good guys fighting to get rid of the immunity from prosecution and punishment for those bad apples. The entire organization should be maligned, and dismantled. The idea that people must be subservient, groveling serfs to be "smart" is completely insane.  If anyone wants "police" to protect them, they can hire their own... without any special privileges or powers. And at their own expense.

eric1, First of all, welcome to TMM!


I would add to what MamaLiberty said, and that is that one must draw a distinction between "enforcers" and "Peace Officers". One group is to be admired for their intent in enforcing laws against mala in se and the other group is to be disdained for their intent in enforcing rules of mala prohibita.

Having said this, I generally agree that using epithets against anyone is bad form and that there are many Peace Officers that are to be admired.

From MamaLiberty; "The Price of Liberty (is) self ownership, self control, integrity and non-aggression."
