COPS GOT BAD ATTITUDE
To Orwell Today,
re: COPS WHO KILL BLAME VICTIMS
Yes, I AGREE totally that cops get away with this more than we know. Who will protect the prisoner who has no resources or who does not really know his rights? Who will actually stand up to this? Thanks for informing us on the subject.
I am from BC and right away I noticed the attitude of Edmonton Police. I got stopped for a couple of speeding tickets and also another incident. I was amazed at the attitude of the male cops. They are very ignorant to women, and they think they are sooooo much better than everyone else. I noticed last year watching the Fireworks. I saw a man fall down on Saskatchewan Drive. The police blocked the road for far too long, for hours, doing absolutely nothing but blocking innocent tourists and locals wanting to get their children home after the fireworks. They are just assholes here in Edmonton. I have never had a negative opinion about Police but here I have my first taste of a whole 'system' that bothers the shit out of me.
Thank you for your kind, supportive words on my coverage of the subject, and for sending your story and observations.
Every day in the news, as you've no doubt noticed yourself, there are stories of police assault and brutality. There's no way I could even begin to cover all of them, although each of them is another inch along the road to the Police State they're setting up here in North America - and the rest of the Western World, modelled after practices presently conducted in the Soviet Union and China, and the countries they control. We're becoming no different, just as Orwell explained in 7.Systems of Thought and 37.We Are The Dead.
As a case in point, here's an article in today's news about the use of tasers and stun guns by cops and now civilians. The corporation that makes these mind, body and soul destroying devices is marketing them to consumers in black pearl, titanium silver, electric blue and metallic pink:
Taser use popular despite risk. MinnesotaDaily, Jan 25, 2007
(...A shock delivers 50,000 volts, cycling 19 times per second for five seconds. The shock basically paralyzes the muscles between the leads...."It is not pleasant; there is no resisting it"...The shock incapacitates the suspect and usually allows police to subdue the person...."It would be a sexual predator's dream to have a weapon like (a Taser) to use"...)
The victim I think of the most - besides the recent twenty-two-year old boy in BC who was shot behind the ear while in police custody - is that sixteen-year-old boy in Edmonton who was pushed down the elevator shaft. If they can get away with that, they can get away with anything.
Two important articles to read, if you haven't already, are COPS ARE DOGS IN ANIMAL FARM and DRUG WAR & PEACE.
And for your further interest, I've compiled the list below of related articles from my website, in the order they were written, with the most recent at the top.
All the best,
To Orwell Today,
I do believe the Edmonton Police do good works also and I appreciate them very very much, respect them and hope they are there to protect me next time I have to lean on them.
Yes, I agree that the police do good works also, and they are appreciated and respected by people when they do. But when they do things that are NOT good, as in the case of abusing their power, as described in the articles on my website, it needs to be brought to the peoples' attention, otherwise the abuse will continue and will escalate. The law is there to protect us, and the police are subject to its rules as well.
It's not a crime to talk about police crime, and people shouldn't fear when they do. The police constantly ask, through their CRIME STOPPERS programs, for the public to get involved in helping fight crime. When we see crime, we're asked to report it. That is what victims, witnesses, journalists and others who are "watchdogs" are doing when they bring crime by police to the public's attention. They are being CRIME STOPPERS, a term Orwell coined in "1984". See 21.Crimestop.
