Cops aren’t just average guys. Cops have the power of life and death. They have qualified immunity. They have the authority to confiscate your property for any reason. This is called Civil Asset Forfeiture.
Stop trying to oversimplify an extremely complicated dynamic.
Marijuana has medicinal properties that people are using to improve the quality of life of hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of your fellow citizens. Yet, the Police will brutalize you to enforce the immoral laws surrounding Marijuana and the War On Drugs. Children have been taken from parents by Police because those PARENTS were using cannabis products to help their children. This is immoral.
Cops have a choice. Instead, they hide behind the phrase “I don’t make the law. I just enforce it.” Nazis used that same excuse at Nuremburg. They were told that this defense was invalid. Yet, American Law Enforcement use this phrase daily.
Police are not your friend. Police aren’t your good buddy. They aren’t there to protect and serve you. Police are there to enforce the law. They do not care if that law destroys lives at the behest of Corporate Lobbyists. The Police will enforce any law. The Police will do everything in their power to enforce a law up to and including taking your life. No, Cops aren’t just average guys in uniform. They are average guys in uniform who have extraordinary authority and power. They have the power to take life and to do so with impunity.
