When Should We Start Forcibly Resisting Police Tyranny?

A 17-year-old kid was tased into a coma and suffered brain damage after Officer Tim Runnels arrested him for a traffic ticket that was associated with the car he had borrowed. It was not his ticket. The window was broken and the minor could not roll the window down completely when ordered. Therefore the officer used force to enforce an unlawful order. The department has stated that Runnels acted within policy and placed the officer on paid vacation. The minor is the son of another police officer. Since it deals with one of their own, the FBI has launched a probe. Image credit: OregonDOT

swatprepIf putting a child in a coma for someone else’s traffic ticket is within policy, where does it end?

 “Those who make peaceful revolution impossible, make violent revolution inevitable.”

-President John F. Kennedy

Weeks of peaceful protests and outright riots in Missouri have accomplished nothing. The government has chosen to protect its enforcement class rather than its citizens. If peaceful requests for a redress of grievances, as guaranteed in the US Constitution, fail to work, do people have the right to engage in violence to protect their life and the lives of their loved ones?

Police officer deaths are at an all time low, yet cases of police brutality are at an all time high. More importantly, officers are not held accountable for their actions and are allowed to walk free even when a video is available that shows them murdering someone who is begging for their life. What are the American people to do when the protests, politicians, and courts have failed them?

Americans have been told that their freedom rests on four boxes: the soap box, the ballot box, the jury box, and the cartridge box.

People have exercised their right to stand on soap boxes and speak against the corruption and brutality that is plaguing the American justice system for decades and nothing has been done.

The ballot box has been proven pointless as special interests, police unions, and corrupt elected officials protect law enforcement in exchange for preferential treatment.

The jury box is also pointless as prosecutors and law enforcement work hand in glove to cover up the misdeeds of their fellow law enforcers.

The first three boxes have been used and proved to be useless against the machine of general mayhem that is known as the “thin blue line.” The only box left available to the American people is the cartridge box. Objections to shooting a cop are so ingrained in the American psyche that I can visualize many readers wincing as the subject is openly discussed. The discussion of uncomfortable ideas is the only path to reform; but to avoid sending the gentle reader into a shock-induced coma faster than Runnels’ taser, allow me to phrase the question differently:

If an organization displayed a pattern of assault, rape, murder, theft, home invasion, and racketeering would a person coming in contact with members of that organization have a reasonable expectation that they would be harmed if they did not act to preserve their own life?

All of a sudden the question seems almost ridiculously easy to answer. Of course, a person would have the right to defend their life and property when confronted with such an organization. So why are those that wear blue uniforms instead of blue bandanas immune from this judgment of guilt?

The answer is simple: propaganda. Much like those that turned a blind eye to totalitarian police forces throughout history, the average American sees these people as heroes out defending democracy against the threat of lawlessness. The problem, of course, is that the United States is not a democracy; it is an oligarchy.

Some readers probably retracted in horror from the screen at the idea that the United States is not what was told to them in their high school civics class. The term oligarchy gets thrown around and sometimes people aren’t clear on exactly what it means. Provided below is the definition.

Full Definition of OLIGARCHY

1

:  government by the few

2

:  a government in which a small group exercises control especially for corrupt and selfish purposes; also :  a group exercising such control

3

:  an organization under oligarchic control

Does that seem more like the government we have today, or does the government represent the will of the people, as it would in a republic or a democracy?

Knowing those in government are out to pursue corrupt and selfish interests, makes it a lot easier to view the cop who is beating homeless people to death as the Sheriff of Nottingham and the government as Prince John. So where are Robin Hood and his band of Merry Men?

Where are those that are willing to stand up to injustice and fight those that would kill your child or maim them with a grenade to please the ruling class? Is it time to meet force with force in cases of police brutality? Is it time to stop demonizing the term “cop killer?”

The police watchdog group Cop Block put out video pondering this very question before the topic became the subject of national debate.

Is it time to start using violence against law enforcement?

Is it time to start using violence against law enforcement?

While I make it a point to never advocate violence, I will say that I can’t wait to go to Sherwood Forest and cover the story.

I openly posed this question on my personal Facebook account; these are some of the responses I received. It should be noted that at the time of writing not a single person indicated they believed it was wrong to use violence against law enforcement officers that were overstepping their bounds.

I pose the question to the reader: Is it time to start resisting police with violence?

  1. Yes just like PA we don't know why. Just like dorner in California. Look at the illegal actions taken in Boston. I posed this same question to several active militias. Each told me the same thing. When it was them their family their door….then it's to late. Then the media works to deem you a fringe crazy. You will lose public opinion and if you survive, not get a fair trial. If this was to happen it must happen everywhere. Remember no women no kids no none combatants. Vote from the rooftops!

  9. There should be absolutely no difference between a civilian and a law enforcement officer when it comes to criminal liability. I have a right to protect my life, property, and liberty and I'm prepared to do so regardless of the consequences. Even if I don't live in a free country anymore, and law enforcement uses the constitution to wipe their ass while on paid vacation, I still believe I have a right to defend myself.

  19. There is no way in hell that they are going to lock me down or out of my home.,over some cop killer.Besides that i always carry one or two pistols at all times. I can protect myself and shoot better than they can.they don't know the meaning one shot one kill. They empty a mag and hit every thing except what they were shooting at anyway.

  20. Yes. Cops are unlawful domestic entities, not even sanctioned by our Constitution, per Article 1, Section 10, Clause 3 of the US Constitution. The elected Sheriff's office is the only constitutional law enforcement in the states anyhow. To the author, I have been pointing out this stuff for over 2 years now. Remember, the kings troops (British) acted as "law enforcement" against the rights & interests of the colonists, as well as being actual soldiers. Posse Commitatus makes it illegal to use troops as LE. The police are nothing but a military, coupled with their entanglement with the federal agencies too, it's about 4 million strong. So keep that in mind. We have zero duty & obligation to NOT shoot back or kill cops/feds because they're breaking the very foundation of what it means to have law & order. When there is a CLEAR pattern of disregard for the laws that are constitutional & the Bill of Rights itself, we are supposed to resist that. We're supposed to open cans of whoop a$$ on the perps who dress as good guys but are nothing but state paid thugs. I don't like it, but it is what it is. The rule of law in 1946 was being violated for over a decade by a Sheriff's office in Athens, TN. What happened on August 1-2nd, 1946 was astounding. Vets mostly gathered with arms, rebelled armed, engaged in a series of fighting, beating down deputies & blowing cars up those 2 days until the deputies & Sheriff were arrested. Thus the rule of law was restored too. That happened over alot of corruption, mainly voter fraud, but today, there's so much more going on. It's our RIGHT & DUTY to resist domestic enemies as well as foreign ones. In our case, it's domestic & they live next to us. Keep that in mind when you go out next time & eat.

  21. To think, we outnumber cops, we out-gun them so much, we have so much power that is untapped, that we refuse to work together to take them down, it's mind boggling to me. Arresting every cop, every judge, every single politician is what I prefer. We need to restore this nation from the ground-up. I fear though, it won't happen without alot of blood because quite simply put, the power structure here is too deeply ingrained. Americans are gonna suffer for their complacency I fear. We're not going to fix this tyrannical govt & it's army of cops/feds without destroying them & their capabilities. Brainwashed Americans feel the police are "heroes" and work to keep us "safe" even though the facts clearly point out otherwise, both literally & constitutionally. Other says they got families, so what? WE got families & we're being oppressed! Without the cops doing the dirty work for the politicians/judges/DA's, we wouldn't have to worry about this! Nazi's & their Secret Police had families. All tyrants enforcers throughout history have had families. Their families have nothing to do with what their tyrannical husband, son or wife does to the people out here. Yes, tyrannical. Most Sheriff's offices are full of the same corrupt scum that police are too.
