Why do so many people have blind spots where cops are concerned? Even otherwise liberty-loving people. I don’t get it at all.
One guy told me he thinks cops “fight bad dudes” so he doesn’t have to. Such as when a woman gets beaten by her husband, instead of her having to confront the evil loser on her own, she can call the cops and let them do it.
Sounds cute if that were reality.
He’s ignoring the fact that that abuser has a high likelihood of being a cop or “cop adjacent”.
I have no problem with someone calling for rescue– I do have a problem with those rescuers being a monopoly that everyone is forced to fund.
I also have a problem with that gang of “rescuers” not being held accountable when they show up and kill the person who called for help. A local woman experienced this, but she survived. The cop was a bad shot and only wounded her in the shoulder when he showed up to save her from an intruder he didn’t find.
Also, why does it have to be the cops she calls? Because that’s how the rules the cops established and enforce are set up. If she does what she has a natural human right to do, the cops will most likely kidnap and cage her until the government courts decide how much to punish her.
Others have told me it’s because they are helpless and can’t defend themselves. Not in those exact words, of course, but that’s what they were getting at.
Still, others support cops because they are cowards. Sorry, but it’s important to call things what they are. And if you’re afraid to defend your own life, liberty, or property…
Cops are bad guys who sometimes accidentally do good, but more often either do bad or enable others to do bad. They are unnecessary and are harmful to society. Don’t ever support or excuse them and pretend it’s about supporting liberty.
