You can’t have a police state without police. And, if you allow government to have police, you’re probably going to find yourself in a police state sooner or later.
Unless you can find a real way to directly, and tightly, control (and “police”) the police. (No one has ever managed to find that unicorn yet.)
Now, I suppose if you’re a coward and you want to live in a police state, you’re fine with that.
But if you don’t want to live in a police state, but you still want cops around, for some incomprehensible reason, you are going to be disappointed. Eventually, if not sooner.
It’s a path you are either choosing, or your family, friends, and neighbors are choosing for you. At least speak up in opposition.
