  1. I am law and order biased. I want our peace officers to return to their families in one piece every night. I have two wonderful nephews that have to deal with the less disirealbles every day. My wife’s cousin retired after an on job incident ended its career.
    The problem is the three branches of government collude to write and support laws that force agression against civilians. Cut out crap laws, (remove 80-90% of laws that should not have been written), hold elected government officials accountable, focus on the 10-15% of violent and obscene crime, and body armor might not be needed.

    • Why not just ask your nephews to actually honor their oath of office to the Constitution for a change?

      But then that is clearly way too much to ask of Only Ones.

  2. The war will be ruthless and bloody. All because the pigs have gone too fucking far. Anyone who believes their families should be spared is dumber than fuck. The enemy deserves nothing.

    Did he forget his ammo?

    I have heard that their training is rather below par…

  4. G. Gordon Liddy had some sage advice for such situations…

  6. The main problem is not the government, but the cop on the road. They have entered into combat mode of shoot first ask questions later. AND the general public has not only accepted this attitude , but has let the police police themselves, and answer to THEIR law and not the law of the land. The police of today have become a rabid entity of its own answering only to itself.

  7. The right to resist an illegal arrest is well established … and I plan to exercise that right if some cop tries getting stupid with me. I’m too old to worry about consequences.

    “Citizens may resist unlawful arrest to the point of taking an arresting officer’s life if necessary.” Plummer v. State, 136 Ind. 306. This premise was upheld by the Supreme Court of the United States in the case: John Bad Elk v. U.S., 177 U.S. 529.”

  8. And who determines a ” bad arrest”, you, the police, the courts.

    • The police are rotten and corrupt.
      The courts are rotten and corrupt.
      The gubbermint is rotten and corrupt.

      Let’s think real hard. Hmm.

      • Good morning my friend, timely indeed. We both agree things are not going well in the police world. We both agree the PO are their own worst enemies.

        What my thought here is, those federal citations noted above are correct, however men and women, patriots who make the choice to not be arrested right wrong or indifferent, can’t make any choice if their dead. At that point the only remedy at that point is a civil court of law. Furthermore you smoke the cop, you WILL have hard times coming your way. I mean really really hard times.

        We both know no grand jury in this country will hold accountable a police officer who dispatches a citizen who refused to be arrested, for crimes real or perceived

        The cost of freedom is expensive, the remedy is via the courts. Not on the streets. It’s fucked up, I just don’t want to see any of us put themselves behind the eight ball.

        Talking’s cheap, poor choices such as those mentioned within the presence of the police are ” unforgiving”

        Hope life on the island is going well. Have a good one.
