Recently, I interviewed Rob Richardson from Off Grid Survival. One of the main topics we explored was the out-of-control police state in this country and the impact it is having on our neighborhoods and psyche. In doing the research for that interview, I came across several very disturbing articles regarding SWAT attacks perpetrated against citizens. Most of the situations did not call for a SWAT attack. Believe it or not, a lot of the alarms were sounded by disgruntled gamers! Yes, one person sitting at home playing a video game and calling the police, telling them a story that may or may not be true—and the police's response is to send out a SWAT team to investigate!
It appears the police officers in this country should be held up as the reason for gun control. On the one hand, we have Moms demanding gun control like it's the ordinary, law-abiding citizen that are the problem when they should be, in fact, looking at the local police department and demanding action. The police, as the awake and aware have known for some time, are completely out of control. No need to revisit any of the recent high-profile murders at the hands of the local police. Instead, let's review what other criminal, murderous activities the gangs in blue have been conducting.
If you listen to the mass media, people like Gabrielle Giffords, and organizations such as Everytown, they would have you believe that responsible citizens should not own guns to protect their families and property. Never do you hear on the mainstream media the atrocities committed by the local police, everyday, across this country. Would you believe the police have killed a person an average of every eight hours in the US in 2015?
Obomba did his level best to portray the police and the armed citizen as being equal in his State of the Union address, stating:
"We may have different takes on the events of Ferguson and New York. But surely we can understand a father who fears his son can't walk home without being harassed. Surely we can understand the wife who won't rest until the police officer she married walks through the front door at the end of his shift."
It sounds like Obomba wants to paint a picture of equality. Well, if you look at the available data it is anything but equal. How many police have been gunned down by citizens in the US in 2015? Well, the FBI will not keep that information nor do local police departments. How convenient. Well, there are people that are tracking this information on both sides of the issue.
As of February 13, U.S. police have killed at least 131 people in 2015, an average of three per day, the vast majority by gunfire. Last year, police killed more than 1,100 people according to the killedbypolice.net website, nearly three times the number reported by local and state police and sheriff's departments to the FBI. The FBI reporting is voluntary, and many departments, large and small—including New York City—do not participate.
In the first 44 days of 2015, while 13 police died while on duty, no police were killed by hostile action, according to the pro-police website, "Officer Down Memorial Page." All of the reported deaths have been attributed to illness or accidents.[Source]
Not good enough? Do you trust the Wall Street Journal?
Criminal justice experts note that, while the federal government and national research groups keep scads of data and statistics— on topics ranging from how many people were victims of unprovoked shark attacks (53 in 2013) to the number of hogs and pigs living on farms in the U.S. (upwards of 64,000,000 according to 2010 numbers) — there is no reliable national data on how many people are shot by police officers each year.
Does that sound like the police are in real danger? In danger of a heart-attack or perhaps the flu, due to forced inoculations. The citizens of this country still have at least a small amount of respect for their local police. Personally, I want to believe in the good of all people, that's just the way I was raised. Unfortunately, the police are charged, the exact same way as I would be charged, with guilt by association. If the good cops don't start turning in the bad cops, regardless of their gang colors, they are going to lose what little respect is left.
The mainstream media loves to parade the police—local, state, federal or whatever—around like they are here to "protect and serve." The mainstream media just leaves out the simple fact the police are only protecting and serving the ruling, banking, and elite class in this country. If that doesn't start changing in the very near future, the statics listed above will begin to balance out in earnest.Facebook, Google Plus, & Twitter.
