Yeah. There is a problem of perception here. Mike seems to be the normal type of cop, who would be appalled at some of the activities of those in his career path. But is he? Does he have a perception issue where he see's everything through this grid of "Legal Lawful" which he said several times in the video.
But what is legal and lawful? It is not something that some politician or bureaucrat makes up. It is simple. Everyone has the right to live their lives as they wish so long as they never abrogate the rights of everyone else to the same. Any rule. regulation, imposition, etc. that does not descend from that one law is illegitimate.
The folks with guns and tasers don't respond any better to the claim of freedom than Custer did in the Black Hills.
Laws are lies written down to protect the powerful.
Yes, any law that does not descend from the One Law. If you take what is not yours and what you did not work for, or make, you are stealing, and that is what most "laws" are for. Most of these can then be better described as "anti-laws" but perhaps we can come up with a better name for them.

Mike the cop is a bully just like the rest of them.
I have no tolerance for anyone who wakes up everyday to shit on someone else.
Oh but he's my__(brother, uncle, father cousin, friend...)_____, he would never do that to me
Of Course not you.... But someone....
Well. You can call a crackhead when you're in trouble.
Um. I'd never call the police if I didn't have to. They've never helped anyway. As a child they'd make me get into my drunk fathers car for visitation..To when I was sodomized, they laughed and told me It was my fault.. To almost getting arrested in a state park(2 cars away from ours) for riding bicycles
never a help...always a hassle..
we actually have an open case with a local pd that's been harassing us. I have a video of 2 piggies denying me a supervisor, while tearing up my car. I wasn't aware that I should have called 911. My fiance filed a report and now, all of a suddenly, continue to get pulled over ONLY in that precinct. Twice in 5 hours same Tickets issued...
I am in no way saying any of it is right. I am just showing how it "Is". This country was built on freedom from all of this nonsense. That is not what we have today until something changes it. I choose to live in reality, and keep my life and body in tact. The fact is, we live in a policed country and I choose to work around laws that I deem unfair, but I also know if I fuck up and get caught, there are smart ways to deal with it, and not so smart ways that get you killed.
Ms.. Get an attorney. Yes, it will cost you money up front probably. File a suit, and get a harassment suit going. They will in all likelihood stop harassing you because to do so would look really bad for their department. Or, you call the press. Go to city hall. Fuck them. Fuck them, fuck THEM. Just make sure to record them from here on out so it is not your word against theirs. I am sorry you are going through this. More often than not they forget they are there to protect, and serve.
The point to remember is that Mike "believes" his world view to such an extent he does not even know he has it. He is not aware that any other point of view about "the law" is possible. The problem is, he has been under the the delusion of a bait and switch in his mind, at a young age no doubt. He was made to believe that there is a "Right" and "Wrong" which there is. The One Law, the true law, that I mentioned above is that definition. Period.
But unfortunately Mike and many like him had a switcheroo done. He was taught until he believed that the paper law of men is "the law". But you see these vaporous laws of men that seek to break the One Law chafe against our inner knowing - it is not right. I do not belong to the state! But Mike belongs to the state, he is part of it, he has become one with it. So he happily "Enforces the Vapors". He is the faceless Imperial Guard. He will soon be replaced by machines even more efficient...and ruthless.
No, actually this country was built on conquest, which is "Right" based on Violence and intimidation.
Personally, I choose to avoid rabid javelinas and other porkers.
I wont debate the reasons men came to this country, as that would be pointless and possible descend into a morass of history lessons and such, and it really does not change the true "Right" and "Wrong" at this point. The fact is few know of the one law. Some follow it "mostly" because it is innate in our being, but many break it when it is convenient for them. I cannot speak for the motives of those who formed the country as I cannot claim to know them. But I can judge actions.
Some were heroic. Many were despicable. Such is the history of mankind. We are still trying to evolve past the animal-istic instincts we still carry.in us.
Avoidance is always a good, probably the best idea.
As I tell my daughter, Martin Luther King Jr Had to break the law to show how wrong it was. Ms. Rosa Parks had to sit down illegally to Show her value. Some would call It tyranny. I call it bravery in the face of adversity.
Laws are around bc some people don't have a moral compass.
if they had tried to stop him without a taser i bet guy would have taken a few of em out being so high on adrenaline
sick bastards force a guy to watch his baby burn alive
did you know you can get in trouble for not obeying a firefighter
oh your house is on fire go stand across the street while we watch your loved ones die and property destroyed
life liberty pursuit of happiness
if the building wasnt actively collapsing and the child was on the first floor the guy probably could have traded some serious burnsfor his baby firefighters=heros homeowners=criminals
Bumping a very old post but this is absolutely correct. i was a fire fighter and if we were on the scene, we had control and our ranking officer would be the IC or Incident Commander . Law enforcement personnel absolutely hated it and typically it were the State Highway Patrol dicks that gave us problems. When we responded to a collision or vehicle fire we would shut the highway down for as long as needed. State troopers would demand that we opened up a lane and we pretty much refused every time. There is a reason why we close off the highway and ut is usually for the safety of the emergency personnel. There is actually a video out there where a firefighter, not of any rank, denied the request of a Commander of the state highway patrol to open up a lane and eventually this firefighter just ignored him and eventually it got heated and he pulled his gun out and was trying to arrest the fire fighter .
The fued between firefighters and law enforcement is typically fun and harmless. We would get on our radios and yell in high pitched voices and act like we were winded and couldnt breath lmao. No matter how hectic or dangerous a situation is, we were trained to remain calm amd communicate clearly over the radio.
The reasoning behind this you might only have 20 minutes of air and if your trapped, injured and etc......you need to communicate clearly as to not have to continue to repeat yourself and you dann sure don't eant to panic because when you panic you start sucking air and that 20 minute supply could be depleted in under 7 minutes.
Cops panic and i think that's why there are many unnecessary shooting victims by cops. Cops scream like 6 year old kids and wheeze over the radio and its Halarious. I wasnt shocked when i seen the cop video of some officer getting into that dumb song by Taylor Swift.
Im getting a little off track but I do want to say i have been friends with a police officer who is actually a lieutenant now. We are fishing buddies and that's it. He never comes to my house and i never go to his so don't freak out if you know what i mean.
He is a good role model cop. He treats all suspects with dignity. So much that he can get them to be honest with him. Yeah officer i stole the car or ehatever it may be. He jokes with them and treats them as humanbeings. He does get a little hyper over men beating women or parents beating children or any other violent crime of that nature.
After a long process he has had several of his officers suspended and or fired for violating civil rights of others. I can honestly say the city i live in, there is a good relationship between the community and police officers.
I have seen the evolution of police officers. 90% of them were kids and or even young adults that got picked on or let people walk all over them. So they go and get the badge to give them confidence to help them find there balls. Then they go home and play there videogames and go back to being turd balls until their next shift.
There are some cool cops out there but most of them are pussies and punk ass bitches that are nothing.....I mean nothing at all......without there shields and weapons.
Here is what sucks, we cant really do anything about it but exposing them. You damn sure dont rise up against them because at the end of the day, our federal government aka our Military is on their side. Were fucked and the only ones who can do anything about it our them......the leadership within the organization and at all levels. Until their is accountability which again, starts with leadership, we will have no civil rights.
Cops murdering? That's a whole ither subject and that starts with accountability at the top of our judicial system.
Anyway hopefully a little humor from my all time favorite movie.....
