You have to ask yourself what a police officer is. A person with no legal obligation to assist citizens in the face of violent force, who is charged with increasing state revenue by means of subjective enforcement of regulations, in my opinion, is no friend of mine. Certainly no friend of Liberty. I'm torn because I know and like many police officers, but as the the role of the police shifts away from protection and towards fund raising and social engineering I can't help but pine for a resistance movement. Where are the checks and balances that protect us from a police force run by the same government that makes the laws?
