Honestly, I see no difference between the American Police and Thai, Cambodian, Afghan or Egyptian Police.
They are all Corrupt.
In America, they’re simply in denial.
American Police spend most of their time doing anything and everything except Law Enforcement.
American Police generate revenue 90% of the time.
Speeding Tickets, Parking Tickets, Civil Asset Forfeiture and anything else to make a buck or, as I like to call it, pilfer the Citizen.
American Prosecutors use lies, corruption, intimidation, bullying and harassment to persecute citizens and gain a plea deal. Many, if not most, citizens who plea do so, not because they are guilty of anything but because they cannot afford competent legal representation and/or are ignorant of the system.
Judges and Prosecutors will believe obvious Police lies over obvious Citizens truths in order to find guilt and sentence Citizens to prison or fine them.
Setting up speed traps is not law enforcement. It is a rigged system of revenue generation.
A Police Officer will endanger everyone else on the road to catch a speeding driver. How is that Public Safety.
The last time that I was in America, a Police Officer ran a red light to get to an accident that had zero fatalities and was no danger to any citizen. He was rushing over there to produce a traffic report. In doing so, he caused a five car collision that included me. I was able to stop in time. I barely bumped the car who had slammed on their brakes in front of me. However, a large oil truck slammed into the back of me spun off of my truck and hit two other cars causing me to ram the car in front of me and damage and injury to two citizens in two other vehicles.
It is my considered opinion that American Police are a menace to society.
I know many Police in America. I’ve heard the worst stories from them. I’ve heard grotesque racism. I’ve heard obvious violations of the law from them. I’ve witnessed them violate the law.
American Police are granted magical “qualified immunity.” This causes a situation wherein Police are above the law. That coupled with every Prosecutor and Judge in America being either afraid of prosecuting or outright sympathetic to Police regardless of their guilt or innocence in any given situation has created a huge imbalance of justice in America.
In reality, it is rare for a citizen to obtain justice when the Police, Prosecutor and Judiciary of America all act in concert to thwart the basic rights as represented by the guarantees in the US Constitution.
American Police feel that they are entitled to respect. They demand respect of their authority despite the fact that they are supposed to be public servants.
In America, Justice is nearly impossible.
At least, the “uncivilized” nations offer a path to justice in the form of small bribes for small crimes. In America, a small crime can land you in prison for 10 to 20 years simply because the Cop needs to fill his quota and the Prosecutor needs a win for his rating.
That is not justice.
That is tyranny.
