We Need More Bad Cops

(ANTIMEDIA) A good cop is a cop who is good at his job, right? So let’s review what a cop’s job is, and what a cop’s job is not. A cop’s job is to enforce the law, no matter how unjust, using force to punish anyone caught disobeying. A cop’s job is not to protect and serve. The Supreme Court admitted in Castle Rock v. Gonzales that the police are under no legal obligation to protect anyone. That phrase, “To Protect and Serve,” written on the side of their vehicles? Just a PR slogan.

Their actual job description is to enforce laws; not to prevent harm, but to make sure that anyone caught disobeying arbitrary legislation written by corrupt politicians is punished by any means necessary, whether by something as “mild” as the threat of violence, all the way up to and including execution on sight with absolute impunity. And there is now a growing trend in which cops are going above and beyond the call of “duty,” and preemptively harassing, attacking, and executing innocent people before they even get a chance to break any kind of law. Bravo officers, you get a paid vacation for your efforts!

So why do we need more bad cops? Well, if a good cop is one who obeys orders and enforces the law without question, then we are in dire need of more bad cops — cops who will use reason, morality and logic, who will not follow orders, and who will stop the good cops from being so good at their jobs. But such “bad” cops are just about extinct, due to the fact that when a cop starts to become bad at his job and better at being a good person, and steps in to stop the violence of his or her fellow coworkers — or even just speaks out against it — he or she is usually bullied, ostracized, intimidated, and threatened into resigning.

This was the case with Sergeant Mark Benjamin of the Atlantic City PD, and New Albany police officer Laura Schook, both of whom spoke out against police abuse and corruption. And when “bad” cops can’t be forced to resign, they will often be fired outright for making the department look bad, as was the case with officer Cariol Horne, who stepped in to stop fellow officer Gregory Kwiatkowski from beating and choking a handcuffed man. For her troubles she was assaulted by officer Kwiatkowski, and then fired.

This horrible cycle creates a sense of fear amongst the blue mafia: cops are scared to do the right thing. What does it say when cops are more afraid of each other than they are of being an accessory to harassment, assault and murder?

A good cop is a bad person. So here’s hoping to seeing more bad cops on the streets!

  3. Obviously the person who wrote this article is doing something to change the system by trying to educate and bring the problem to the forefront. What are you doing? besides making it clear that you are a cop or at lease a cop lover or your head is so far up somebody's ass that you can't see what's going on in America

  5. "doesnt matter what you think is a good law or not"

    Actually, you are 100% correct. It doesn't matter what you or anybody else think about a law. A law is good or bad depending on if it aligns with Natural Law or not. And Natural Law is not a matter of opinion, it's a matter of fact. If a law is in alignment with morality, it's a good law. If not it's a bad law.
    This, however, means that all manmade laws are actually unnecessary. All we need is to learn what Natural Law and morality is and we'll be just fine.

    "you shut the fuck up and do as you're told"

    With that statement, if you were told to kill an innocent, you would? You do understand how absolutely absurd that statement is? If you always do as you're told, without going inwards asking if this is morally right or not, YOU ARE A BAD PERSON. If you always do as you're told you are also a brainwashed slave of the system.

    "unless you take a truly active role in the government you have no room to talk"

    Who told you this? Do you actually believe that there are some people who have more basic rights than other people? That there are some people who have the authority to tell you what you should and shouldn't do with your own body? If you believe this, than this is further evidence that you are a brainwashed slave to the system.

  6. Trying to place all the blame on police for laws is idiotic. That's like blaming a bouncer for kicking you out of a bar for being too drunk. You chose the bar, you got drunk, and the rules were made by the owner. Oh but a "bad bouncer" would be good and let you keep hitting on the 21 year old. Cops are the lowest level on the totem pole. Presumably you're higher than the cop because you vote for those "corrupt" politicians and engage in the society that made these rules. You complain cops are obeying the law too much? Are you fucking high? You're simultaneously complaining about politicians breaking the law, ignoring the voter's obligation to hold politicians accountable, and blaming the only people actually doing their job? What political theory is this? Do-whatever-the-hell-you-want-as-long-as you-think-it's-rightism? You are advocating for rogue unaccountable police. That's a shitty solution.

  7. You're dumb as fuck. No matter who gets voted in. They are already bought And paid for. These cops are upholding unjust laws. That trample the very definition of the Word freedom. I have looked at your profile. I see you are a fat fucking slob of a pig. What are you gonna do when they make it illegal to be a slob like yourself. And enforce you by the comply or die method. I'm betting you die

  8. YOU have missed the point of the majority of posts RE cops… the point IS that THEY have the same laws as the CITIZENS and it is them that are often operating OUTSIDE these laws!
    Additionally, cops DO NOT protect, they come AFTER and clean up (although in some cases make things worse)

  9. Hey there DA Kota do you have an actual brain or is more of an "virtual" brain. I'm 60 and have never,ever called the police for anything. So how in the fuck are they protecting me? They're not protecting anybody. The word you're looking for is "harassment".

  14. Jessica Gonzales v. U.S.A.

    In the first case brought by a survivor of domestic violence against the U.S. before an international human rights tribunal, the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights (IACHR) found that the United States violated the human rights of Jessica Lenahan (formerly Gonzales) and her children. The decision underscores that the U.S. is failing in its legal obligation to protect women and girls from domestic violence.

    In June 1999, Jessica Gonzales' three young daughters, ages seven, nine and ten, were abducted by her estranged husband and killed after the Colorado police refused to enforce a restraining order against him.

    Although Gonzales repeatedly called the police, telling them of her fears for her daughters' safety, they failed to respond. Hours later, Gonzales' husband drove his pick-up truck to the police department and opened fire. He was shot dead by the police. The slain bodies of the three girls were subsequently discovered in the back of his pickup truck.

    Gonzales filed a lawsuit against the police, but in June 2005 the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that she had no Constitutional right to police enforcement of her restraining order. She then filed a petition with the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights, saying that the inaction of the police and the Supreme Court's decision violated her human rights.

    Status: In a landmark decision, the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights (IACHR) found the U.S. government responsible for human rights violations against Jessica Lenahan (formerly Gonzales) and her three deceased children who were victims of domestic violence.

  15. Right and some idiot judge like you will not uphold the Constitution as law as written for the government to follow

    You are the real criminal why let's look at one law of the Constitution

    The Second Amendment (Amendment II) to the United States Constitution protects the right of the people to keep and bear arms.[1][2][3][4] The Supreme Court of the United States has ruled that the right belongs to individuals,[5][6] while also ruling that the right is not unlimited and does not prohibit all regulation of either firearms or similar devices.[7] State and local governments are limited to the same extent as the federal government from infringing this right per the incorporation of the Bill of Rights. The Second Amendment was adopted on December 15, 1791, as part of the first ten amendments contained in the Bill of Rights.

    The not only gives Americans the right to own guns but also the right to bear them

    to hold or carry (oneself, one's body, one's head, etc.):
    to bear oneself erectly.

    This means every law against the right to carry a weapon is illegal and you are a criminal who uses unlawful laws to do your bidding.

    America is dead your system killed it – the current system is no better than the one Hitler created and your no better than Hitler because of your support of it.

  17. Matt FU Biz I'm going to ignore the other stuff but the thing about the politicians is spot on, dude. People act like a guy with a donkey symbol is different than a guy with an elephant. They all have the same goal: get richer and help other rich folk.

  18. You have obviously completely missed the point of this article, you fool. How can you talk like that? Shut the fuck up and do as you're told? How American of you. People like you are a huuuuuge part of the problem. It's obvious by the way you type that you are nothing but an uneducated, unenlightened piece of garbage. Have fun being an ignorant sheep the rest of your life. You do realize that is not just criminals who are being victimized right? Or do you just ignore any news story that doesn't fit in your little conservative bubble? You disgust me.
