I'm sure that we all know the ostensible purpose of the police is to protect the citizenry and enforce law and order.
Well, they're not. I know people have been catching on to this on at an increasing pace of late, but it's nice to know the SCOTUS thinks otherwise:
WASHINGTON, June 27 - The Supreme Court ruled on Monday that the police did not have a constitutional duty to protect a person from harm, even a woman who had obtained a court-issued protective order against a violent husband making an arrest mandatory for a violation
The decision, with an opinion by Justice Antonin Scalia and dissents from Justices John Paul Stevens and Ruth Bader Ginsburg, overturned a ruling by a federal appeals court in Colorado. The appeals court had permitted a lawsuit to proceed against a Colorado town, Castle Rock, for the failure of the police to respond to a woman's pleas for help after her estranged husband violated a protective order by kidnapping their three young daughters, whom he eventually killed.
The cops are not looking out for you, my friend. They're here to control you. And the more short-sighted idiots there are who brainlessly give them more of a monopoly on power, the more they will abuse that power.
Pimp Daddy G has decided that now he's gotten enough of a hold over his whores with promises of protection and provision from those nasty Johns, and he's starting to get a little slap-happy.
Especially so when it's his own that're on the line:
And the cops clearly have no problem shooting up the innocent while they panic.
So...if you've done nothing wrong, you have no need to fear them, right?
It's just like the cops in Constantinople during the fall of the Ottoman empire. They turned into brigands. Some things just don't change.
