The True Face Of Police

May 28th, 2014

The Federalist has a piece on Survivor.  Read the whole thing — it’s a much different direction than this piece.  I had to pull this out, to make a different point:

This might have been the best season so far.  It featured one of the most gifted Survivor contestants I’ve ever seen play; New Jersey cop Tony Vlachos.  Tony was a virtuoso of treachery. He expertly read people’s weaknesses, (unconsciously) deployed game theory and was unafraid to dive into the dirt, both literally and morally.  He snooped, threatened, cajoled, browbeat, backstabbed, but his real gift was an ability to convincingly and shamelessly lie.

A few examples:

  • Tony swore on his badge, and lied.
  • Tony swore on his wife and newborn baby, and lied.
  • Tony swore on his dad’s grave, and lied.

This is 100% expected.  Police lie.  That is what they do.  It is their nature.  Maybe it wasn’t that way once, but it sure as hell is now.   To be trained as a cop now is to be trained as an effortless and easy liar.  They lie when the truth would suit them better, because they also think that they are smarter than you.

The next time you are listening to a cop, remember: He is probably lying.  It is more likely than not.  The courts have even explicitly told them they can lie.  It is any surprise that the courts turn a blind eye when they lie to juries as well as suspects?

My beard is not ironic. I can change a tire.  Changed the wife’s oil this weekend, in fact.  (Not a euphemism.)  I shave the beard down to a goatee in the summer.  The only “product” that goes in my facial hair is wax that goes on the mustache only.  And yes, I wash it with Irish Spring.

As far as I am concerned, if you have a beard and an earring, you better be a pirate.

Good riddance.  I don’t think that they can maintain critical mass now.  America is inherently anti-fascist.  It’s just hard for us to admit when someone has gone fascist.

The gay soviets have gone fascist.  This was a terrible plan to take.  Why?  Because Prop 8 was popular.  It passed.  If you want to start out-grouping people, you have to be the bigger group.  The anti-Prop 8 faction isn’t the bigger group.

They claim democracy, but they don’t want democracy.  (In all fairness, neither do I.)  Democracy is Prop 8.  They want fascism.  Fascism is political control of corporations and business.

And that is exactly what this is.  They want to politically control the Mozilla corporation.

That is fascism.  Straight up.
