    By the time this thread ends I intend to convince as many of you as possible (the ones capable of reason and logic) that we live in a police state.

    I say we live in a "police state" because the police of the United States have been militarized and given special rights and privileges that none of the rest of us enjoy. Even their clothing, weapons and vehicles are militarized. As is much of their training.

    When is the last time you flashed your lights and honked your horn (emergency lights and siren for cops) to run a red light? When is the last time you sped 60 mph in a 30 mph zone to get to to the local donut shop in time to meet with your coworkers? When is the last time you spun an illegal u-turn just because you wanted to go the other direction? When is the last time you and your buddies beat a homeless man to death and got away with it (Google Kelly Thomas video) and the city paid a 4.9 million dollar wrongful death settlement on your behalf? When is the last time you flashbanged a baby in its crib while forcing yourself and buddies into somebodies home (New Low: Sheriff's Office Claims Infant at Fault for SWAT Team Blowing His Face Apart with Grenade) and the city paid 3.6 million dollars on your behalf in the resulting suit?

    Never? I thought not.

    So many cops are assholes, it must be part of the required qualifications for the job.
    Or perhaps it's just a result of the military training (brainwashing) that they must complete, before being set loose with an arsenal of military weapons.
    We've come a long way in 50 years...

    If these actions don't concern you, then you never paid attention in your history classes.

    There is a problem with the idea that we live in a police state. It isn't quite accurate. We are closing in on it IMO. We do have a major problem with police misconduct and abuses.

    One of the better sources for information on this topic is PoliceMisconduct.net

    As I said we aren't there yet. I believe we are at the point of no return. Where authoritarian policies will soon become irreversible. But we aren't quite there yet.

    We are there. When cops come at you with military guns, kicking in your doors and caging and killing you for failure to appear for a 'jaywalking' ticket or treating your loved one with cannabis who has cancer, ticketing children for not having a permission slip to sell Koolaid...we are there.

    Funny thing is, you said, "funny shit", and didn't make anyone laugh.
