Mentally Corrupting Police Culture

Here is a link to an interesting article from a former police officer describing the corrupting culture of this profession:

Confessions of a Former Bastard Cop – Officer A. Cab – Medium

In this piece a former police officer describes the evil police culture that makes police officers behave evilly; having been psychologically convinced that the entire rest of mankind are their immoral, trashy, murderous enemies best to be killed and asked questions later; and he argues for police abolition. Here are some quotes of his article that I recommend to read:

I was a police officer for nearly ten years and I was a bastard. We all were. ”

This essay has been kicking around in my head for years now and I’ve never felt confident enough to write it. It’s a time in my life I’m ashamed of. It’s a time that I hurt people and, through inaction, allowed others to be hurt. It’s a time that I acted as a violent agent of capitalism and white supremacy. Under the guise of public safety, I personally ruined people’s lives but in so doing, made the public no safer… so did the family members and close friends of mine who also bore the badge alongside me. But enough is enough. … ”

Capitalism requires a permanent underclass to exploit for cheap labor and it requires the cops to bring that underclass to heel. ”

This is where we have to have the courage to ask: why do people rob? Why do they join gangs? Why do they get addicted to drugs or sell them? It’s not because they are inherently evil. I submit to you that these are the results of living in a capitalist system that grinds people down and denies them housing, medical care, human dignity, and a say in their government. ”   Continue reading “Mentally Corrupting Police Culture”
