Diabolical Police State

Cops committing sexual assault and battery of passengers at every airport; cops drawing people’s blood without consent; cops searching people’s body cavities without consent; cops searching people’s cars and homes without consent; cops planting drugs in people’s cars and homes; cops invading hospitals to draw blood from unconscious patients; cops shooting people’s dogs without reason; cops beating, tasing, and shooting people when those people pose no threat.

Look around you, U.S. citizen. Consider that you live in a truly diabolical police state. Why so little noise in opposition? Is the racism really so deep that it can make up for this hell on earth?
