    Another Government entity gone rogue. Our Police have forgotten that they actually work for the Taxpayers. It's not the other way around.


    The anger hasn’t subsided in Humarock after 4th of July celebrations were cut short due to safety concerns.

    The neighborhood met Sunday morning to plan their next move in a quarrel with the Town of Scituate.

    Nearly 100 people attended a meeting at the South Humarock Civic Association Clubhouse. At the meeting, some residents went so far as to call Scituate town officials “Fascists,” and say Humarock needs to break away.

    The latest aggravation began earlier this month, when residents claim the town was heavy-handed in enforcing a ban on bonfires.

    “That was a full military operation… I mean hummers up and down the beach, state police helicopters, horseback, bomb squad, [and] a command post up the center,” said Fred Hayden, who owns a summer home in Humarock.

    Fires ripped through the beach-front homes in Scituate in March.

    Bonfires are a tradition on the beach, but after a fast-moving fire burned through four homes in March, Scituate shut them down for public safety reasons.

    During Independence Day celebrations on July 3, State Police troopers were called in to help maintain order in the mostly senior-citizen community. A 70-year-old man says they used excessive force when arresting him, leaving his arms bruised and wrists bleeding.

    “Every time they talk to you it’s in a threatening fashion,” long-time resident Emory Langlolies said during Sunday’s meeting.

    Langlolies described his experience with law enforcement on the 3rd as overkill. He claims he was playing patriotic music when town officials marched onto his private property and unplugged his stereo. Langlolies says an officer then crushed the plug to keep him from starting the music again...

    Yeah its good to see the population wake up every single government worker better watch it the loyal American has been pushed too far. We will show our tea party fiscal responsibility vote again in November and then in 2014. The message is clear to these government dolts

    oh, and who are allowed to become the police and who institutes their training and codes of conduct ... as though being a skinhead christian has ever led to anything but violence - hippies need not apply.

    and believing Ron Paul would endorse anything but an all righting (christian) police force and the codes they represent is a sad commentary for his supporters who are actually looking for positive change.

    The richer the neighborhood the more the cops are prick bastards, not a new thing, 25 years ago the Palm Beach Cops regularly beat people into comas or to death for no good reason whatsoever, probably worse now.

    Our entire Police Force needs to be re-trained. Many good law abiding Taxpayers now fear & loathe them. We're reaching a tipping-point. When you lose the good law abiding Taxpayer, you lose all confidence & support.

    It is not going to get any better, at the local level, the police usually reflect the attitude of the biggest local property owners or prominent citizens and fall all over themselves to tow their line. Nationally the local honchos have never been more afraid of crime even though it is at historically low levels.

    Ahhh you underestimate the power of calling anyone who opposes police brutality as being hippies and trouble makers.

    Yeah, Big Brother Gestapo-Worship now permeates our society. I guess it's the years & years of propaganda indocrination. It starts very early on in life for American Citizens. Authority-Worship is pounded into their craniums as children. That's the only explanation i can think of.

    Any community that does not want the police should not have the police. This includes Chicago, Detroit, any any other community that would just rather not be bothered.
