Cops are only Human

It is dangerous to view Police or, as they like to call themselves, Law Enforcement as “humans.” Certainly, they are humans. However, they are much more than that. They are of the State. They are the means through which the State projects power and authority.

They are not merely humans who are good or bad. They have authority and power vested in them by the State which can be used for good or bad.
Their incompetence can adversely affect us. Their negligence can adversely affect us. Their willful malfeasance can adversely affect us. Any action that they take that is not wholly competent, lawful, moral and with good intent can adversely affect us. Any action that they take which they believe is lawful, moral and with good intent can adversely affect us.

These are not mere humans. They are not mere Citizens. They are instruments of the State. Thinking of them as merely fellow humans or even fellow Citizens is a mistake.

Every action a Law Enforcement Officer takes whether it be good or bad has consequences. Many of the actions that LEO take in the performance of their duties will adversely affect Citizens of the various States and of the United States of America. This must always be uppermost in their minds and it should be the same for Citizens who wish to remain free.

Cops are not mere humans. They are Officers of the State vested with authority and the power over Life and Death. They cannot be imbeciles. They cannot be incompetent. They cannot rely on mere muscle memory. They must be disciplined, knowledgeable of the law, morally reliable, competent and they must be held to a higher standard than every other Citizen of the United States of America.
