What a collection of over-reacting morons...

Do the police think that they are gods?
Or the guardians of gods?
I think they see themselves as such.
In the past I have laughed at news of entire court systems losing funding and people got angry because of the general fear that without the cops and the court systems, things will get ugly for normal American citizens.
In light of this
and this (warning: quite horrible)
and a thousand other cases that have popped up in just the last few months alone, a rational person must ask: are we not headed for much worse if we stay our current course?
What is much worse?
Well, let's start with assuming the cops and courts go away. Worst case scenario: people are mugging and killing each other for resources, with no cops to watch over us.
Now let's look at the reality: the cops routinely don't even bother to respond to thefts. In Oakland, recently, they declined to deal with a hostile intruder in a man's house and the man got killed as a result - they were too busy handling an Occupy protest. The police routinely shoot unarmed people who aren't aggressive, they plant false evidence on people (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/False_e...false_evidence), and other transgressions that often go unpunished by the court system. (See: Rodney King.) When the citizenry really start fighting back, we get COINTELPRO and Ruby Ridge. (Really, who here is psycho enough to argue that Vicky Weaver deserved to be shot dead when she was holding a BABY in her arms?)
We have a massive, growing and increasingly privatized prison-industrial complex with arguably the largest prison population in the world outside of China, and an increasingly large number of prisoners doing cheap slave labor that is increasingly replacing paid industrial labor by free people.

He does have a point, I mean we do have a rather large amount of people in jails...
Honestly, I'm to the point where marijuana should be legalized and my entire reasoning is basically that of prohibition and how that created organized crime. Plus, I don't like the idea of someone being in jail that was gonna smoke and feel loopy for a few hours next to murderers and rapists, if you didn't kill anyone you have a target on your back.

Unfortunately, we don't see a lot of good stats in the regular news ie stats which distinguish between those who are stopped for speeding and found with 400 hits of ecstasy and those who plea bargained out of something more serious. Which is not to say that the drug laws aren't costing us a fortune in courts and prison expenses or that it's ridiculous. Here in Florida you can be charged with possession with intent to distribute for being in possession of one ounce of pot in a single bag. Now when I was a kid, an ounce was the standard purchase amount. I understand that pot is more expensive now, but tell me that the 20 gram division between simple possession and intent to distribute isn't contrived and designed to generate more serious charges.
I was watching Locked Up Abroad and in Peru a judge goes and has a day in the prison in which he reviews the cases of prisoners and let's out the ones which aren't a threat to society. It's a very efficient operation, the judge goes to prison and sits at a desk reviewing cases as they come to him. Yes, it's rather imperial, but our dog and pony show doesn't seem to be any better.

The libs/dems of today are the Quislings of former years. The cowards who would vote a fraud into office in exchange for handouts from the devil.

On the other hand they would like the police if they arrested people they didn't like for having different world view then the Moonbats.
And by the way, I'm sure Zalatix would just love the cops if they were to save his weedly little ass from a gang of punks who using him as a chew toy after he tried to reason with them as they were ripping him off on his latest drug deal.CU's Paranormal Expert.
