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”

But to keep in mind the coming Christmas holidays, here is some beautiful traditional music from Bolivia – which, if you understand Spanish well enough, will also inform you about the centuries of abuse of the Bolivian people (miners losing their lungs, factory workers their hands, poor people walking barefoot through their entire lives…):

Also new insights on recent events and presidential candidates. And, of course, some stuff to read, too.

Unaccountable U.S. Government Agencies

Chris Hedges: Maintaining US Empire is bipartisan ~ RT America

By now, a growing number of Americans have become aware of how our intended democracy has become undermined by Big Money and turned into a sham where voter participation is essentially blocked by a twin party tyranny of the R- and D-Party, both working exclusively for the rich and their corporations, think tanks, and an army of 42,000+ registered lobbyists (plus many more unregistered ones) while dangling billionaire puppets in front of us as “our” candidates, excluding true people’s representatives from our ballots or rigging the elections when one does make it on the ballots. Some of us fight for honest candidates or try to take over one of these corrupt major parties from within (always failed, so far), fight for a new party that really represents us, or are even awake enough to fight against the massive election fraud committed by both major parties.

But an issue still often overlooked or smeared as “conspiracy theories” is an evil bureaucracy that also rules us, commits crimes in our name, and is unaccountable because even when we do manage to elect trustworthy representatives into Congress or the White House (or state and local governments), our various bureaucratic institutions are kingdoms of their own whose bosses are not elected, at best appointed by elected officials, but even then generally independent from those as these bureaucratic bosses have no term limits while our elected officials do. And even when the very top bosses are replaced by elected officials, they tend to be or later become lobbyists for the corporations they should regulate rather than serve, so they benefit from term limits and are even more reliably driven into the control by billionaires and their corporations – rather than being restrained by term limits – just like our term limited elected officials. (One reason why term limits aren’t really helpful to democracy, which makes the recent smear of Bolivia’s elected president as a “dictator” because he didn’t accept unconstitutional term limits in Bolivia a bit ironic — and sad, of course, when one looks at the violent mass murders and threats committed by his “political” opposition that is running a racist and fascist coup with support or even organized by OUR unaccountable bureaucratic bosses).  Continue reading “Unaccountable U.S. Government Agencies”
