I support your right to freedom of speech, and assume that you sincerely believe what you are saying, but I disagree with nearly all of it.

“ Or do you think perhaps that their well practiced and continually-reinforced circular justifications for fear and paranoia, violence and overreaction, and fear and paranoia will simply usher you into their tiny world of self-delusion that all this “helps people” and “protects citizens”?”

Your rant just became a reinforcement of Police “fear and paranoia” as your attitude feeds that of Police, who struggle to tell the difference between good citizens and hostile criminals.

What police need most is the support and aid of the wider community they exist to serve and protect, not to be treated as “the most dangerous gang.”

To the extent that your rhetoric empowers people to resist and attack the police, you are part of the problem. If you want to experience life without a police force and the rule of law. Try Somalia or Yemen. I hope you like it.
