Meanwhile, in Connecticut…

Things are heating up to a point that worries His Imperial Majesty a whole lot more than anything going on in the Ukraine, although the latter worries him quite a bit too, seeing as how that particular story is following a script that has a historical tendency to end in tragedy. Always.

Before we continue, however, His Imperial Majesty would like to make a few things abundantly clear: This, and other articles like it, are not an indictment of every LEO in the United States anymore than anything we’ve written about that puling pussy fucktard Bradley Manning is an indictment of the entire United States Armed Forces. If you take it that way, we suggest you do a couple of remedial courses in Reading for Comprehension. His Imperial Majesty has family and friends, lots of them, who are honorable LEOs who wouldn’t dream of violating their oaths or acting in a fashion non-compliant with the Constitutional restrictions under which they, as well as all of the rest of those of us who call ourselves Americans, operate every day. If anybody would like to slander them and brand them as vile and untrustworthy because they wear the Blue and somebody else who wore it committed an atrocious act, then know that your opinion will be held in the regard that it deserves. Somewhere in the same category as one who states that because a Jew once cheated him out of his life’s savings, all Jews should be gassed. You’re talking about people I know and love, people I’d share a foxhole and my last can of beans with, people that you don’t know from Adam.

When I write this kind of post, it is not to call the integrity of a huge group into question because of the unconscionable actions of a few members of it, it is to point out those rotten apples, to let them know that we have their number, to hang a large sign around their necks that everybody, including their fellow officers, can see, stating that they’re disgusting, treasonous pigs unworthy of living in this great country, and it is to help the young and impressionable among them think twice before they allow those swine to drag them down with them.

With all of that behind us, let us proceed.

LC & IB Silverdeth sends a link to a long post about developments in Connecticut with a LOT of links, all of it worth reading as it sums up the situation in its totality quite well. His Imperial Majesty will just focus on one item here, which we shall call “the letter.”

It was received by a citizen of the once great state of Connecticut when he failed to comply in time with the un-Constitutional mandate that he register his weapon and magazines. And yes, it is indeed a real letter and not “fake” as some claim (click to embiggen):

conn-letter-e1393366587721

Now, before we proceed, as we read the letter with our objective glasses on (we sometimes fail to put them on, which is shameful as we spent years having them fitted for us) it is quite true that the letter itself contains to threat of arrest in case of non-compliance. That threat is in the illegal law that the fascists and traitors of the Connecticut legislature forfeited their right to life and liberty in order to pass. But the letter itself does not contain such. Sure, it follows logically that if you’re not following the letters directions for being in compliance, then you’re non-compliant, and if you’re non-compliant with the law that it DOES mention, then the consequences are as stated in the law. Spoiler: Felony. So very MUCH implied but no, not directly mentioned.

That’s not what’s really interesting, though. Where shit gets real is when a concerned citizen, the wife of somebody who received one of those letters, called to clarify the consequences of not following this ridiculous, fascist “law” and spoke to the Connecticut State Gestapo’s Spokestool, one Obersturmbannführer Paul Vance:

“My question is this: What happens if my husband decides not to do this?” Ashley asks the officer, who responds by suggesting that she contact an attorney but that his understanding is that non-compliance is a felony.

“What will happen, then, if my husband refuses? Will you come to our home to arrest him?” she asks again.

Sounding calm and composed, Lt. Vance explains that “we haven’t crossed that bridge just yet.” He says her husband could be subject to arrest and that he did not have a “good answer” to the question.

In either case, Vance emphasizes that he would not personally be visiting gun owners, but lower-ranking officers might.

Of course Herr Obersturmbannführer Vance wouldn’t be doing such ridiculously menial and, *shudder*, dangerous work. That sort of duty would be assigned to expendable, low-ranking members of the Gestapo.

Ashley suggests that this was a “slippery slope”” that could potentially put the police in harm’s way if they go door to door in search of unregistered firearms and gun owners.

“We’re in harm’s way every day,” Vance responded without addressing the prospect of door-to-door gun confiscation.

“We?” Yes, Herr Vance, we can’t imagine the unholy terror of being viciously paper-cut or even stung by a stapler you must live in every single day of your overpaid, worthless life. We surely hope you draw hazardous duty pay.

The caller then asks if the officer took an oath to the Constitution.

“Did I take an oath to the Constitution?” responds Vance, who earned national notoriety in the aftermath of Sandy Hook. “What bearing does that have on this conversation?”

Thank you, you just answered the question, Herr Vance.

Ashley goes on to argue that enforcing unconstitutional laws, which she said are all “null and void,” would be a violation of his oath. He responded by saying that until the law was struck down by the courts, it was a “lawful law” that would be enforced.

So if it was a law that stated, we don’t know, that Jews were subhuman subversive traitors that need to be gassed for the good of the Reich, then it would be a “lawful law” that you’d enforce vigorously until such time as the courts got around to striking it down? No, there is no difference. There IS such a thing as an “unlawful order”, which you would be aware of if you had a minute’s worth of actual service under your XXXL duty belt, which we very much doubt that you do. So, continuing on that thought, if you’d been vigorously following your “lawful law” ordering you to gas Jews and it was finally struck down, what would you do? Apologize to the dead Jews? Resurrect them? Oh no, of course you wouldn’t. You’d be screaming “I was only follovink orderz”, tears streaming down your cheeks as the noose was tightened around your fat neck until the short drop finally shut your malodorous yap up for good.

Wouldn’t do the dead Jews any good, though.

“We’re not the Gestapo, and I don’t want the inference of that,” Vance says.

Then quit acting like the Gestapo, you fucking fascist prick. Quit acting like them or learn to live with the prospect of facing their fate. And know that not a single soul will be weeping for you when your lifeless corpse dangles on the end of a rope. And we’re not kidding about that, because that’s the road you seem to be willing, in your boundless ignorance, to travel down.

“It sounds like you’re anti-American, it sounds like you’re anti-law,” Vance says, clearly becoming frustrated with the caller, who insists she is “pro-American.”

Because nothing is more American than following un-Constitutional laws and throwing people in jail, kicking in their doors and threatening them for the crime of exercising their rights. Gotcha, Herr Obersturmbannführer Vance.

“You’re going to speak to me this way, somebody that pays your salary?” she asks. “You’re a servant, you serve me. … You can refuse to follow unlawful orders!”

“Just remember, you’re the servant, we’re the masters, OK?” she adds.

Vance responds by saying: “I’m the master, Ma’am, I’m the master.”

Ohhhhkay. You are clearly in dire need of some wall-to-wall counseling on the limitations of your office, Herr Vance. The frightening thing here is that you just might believe that, and that statement, that statement ALONE should be a firing offense. You should be stripped of your rank, benefits and pension and be summarily kicked off the force. Not just as a punishment for your offense, not just because you clearly don’t understand how a free society works and what “public servant” means, but because that attitude WILL bring tragedy to countless innocent people as well as those who, like you, richly deserve it when your kind, in your hubris, start acting out on your penis envy and assorted other issues. You do not belong in any position of authority with that attitude, and to keep you there will bring nothing but grief not only to you, about whom we care not at all, you chose that, but to many, many people who deserve nothing of the sort.

How long until somebody fucks up while trying to enforce what you call a “lawful law?” How long until some trigger-happy, untrained fucktard cancerous cunt like this one, who shot up a 70-year-old grandpa for the “crime” of reaching for his walking stick guns down a “non-compliant” citizen for making a “wrong” move as your Gestapo kicks in his door?

Oh sure. They were “only follovink orderz”, they “did what they had to do”, you’re “terribly sorry” and blah, blah, blech. How well do you think that’s going to go over as the Internet and the two or three media outlets not officially members of the New American Reichspartei flood with images of his wife and kids crying over his lifeless body or, heaven forbid, images of his murdered kids because your Gestapo goons just let fly with everything they had to “go home at the end of their shift?”

Just how easy do you think it’s going to be, shoving THAT particular tooth paste back in the tube?

Once that train leaves the station…

We need to get rid of those fascist assholes, and we need to get rid of them right quick. For ALL of our sakes. Because the aftermath is going to be grisly if we don’t. For all of us. And we need the help of the vast majority of LEOs who see those assholes for the cancers on their profession that they are.

Because if we DON’T work together on this one, it’s going to end badly. For all of us.

Thatisall.

Well, they’ll do what they must, I suppose.

But anyone unlawfully entering my home and fulfilling A, O, and J is going to find themselves perforated by either 9 .45ACP or 25 5.56 NATO depending upon what comes most readily to hand at that moment. Each.

As a former LEO I agree with the Emperor on the importance of the individual’s responsibility to stand on his/her principles as signified in the taking of the “oath”.

There may be upstanding law enforcement officers left these days (I believe they are the rare exception), but those numbers are dwindling as they retire.

I see some jaded people in here, and maybe with good reason. I can’t say for sure, as I have never walked a mile in their shoes.
