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.

    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.

    Exactly, brother.

    And that’s what I fear, and what motivates me to write these posts over and over again, because I see that scenario happening. It’s inevitable unless this society, as a whole, wakes up and smells the totalitarian ersatz coffee.

    Not only can it happen here, it will happen here if we keep stuffing our ears because it’s uncomfortable to even entertain the notion. Look how well it worked out for the Germans. It could never happen there either. Until it did. And there are people to blame on both sides.

    Both sides have a subset of individuals who aren’t quite in touch with reality. On “our side” there are those who think that we’ll just gun the bastards down and we’ll all live happily ever after, granted with a few losses on our side who die in glorious, valiant combat, and on “their side” we have those who think pretty much the same, only coming from the other view. That sure, there will be casualties, but it will be mainly the “bad guys” and then a few martyrs to the cause who will live on as heroes in the glorious aftermath.

    Both are horribly wrong. If this shit hits the fan, there won’t be any winners or losers. Oh, there’ll be the last ones standing, I suppose we could call those “winners” and yes, I do believe that our side will be the ones, but none of them, us, will come out with their souls unscarred, their honors intact and their consciences clean either.

    None of this to say that we should all just smoke a bong, stick flowers into our barrels and tune out and refuse to fight because it’ll be horrible, if it comes to that we MUST fight and suffer the consequences or forever live as slaves. The latter is not acceptable, so there.

    But as long as there is even a smidgen of naive hope that all of this might be avoided, that words might stop it before the paste is out of the tube, I’ll keep trying. Once that’s no longer an option… Let the chips fall as they may. I, like every other true American, will have to fight, damn the odds and consequences, even in victory. I’m right there with you, as always.

    I still believe that good and righteous men and women make up the majority of law enforcement, but these type of stories are popping up on my computer at a rate I’m not comfortable with recently. Law enforcement needs to do some pruning, and they need to do it right quick. Police need to start refusing no knock warrants and the like, they need start policing their own….. they need to do more positive public relations type things. Police forces around the nation are not what they were when I was growing up, they need to get back there.
    If they don’t, the result will be very much like what you described. I don’t want to see that.

    I read last week that another letter is circulating. This one has been signed by 250+ Connecticut police officers stating they will not enforce this law. I have not been able to verify this.

    I’ve also read that they had a special election to replace a drone Democrat who went to work for jugears. He voted for the grab. The winner was dead set against it and I believe a republican. Not as good as a recall, but a start.

    Bones growls and barks:

    Emporer, your site, your rules, but at least let me vent before you chew me up and spit me out… On that note, I do not trust ANY cops, and I would not care if it were YOU in that uniform. AS Gingis notes above, the frequency and severity of abuses heaped on the people by the cops are growing more severe and frequent on a seemingly monthly basis. When those responsible are “only doing my job” and the response from their department is “followed training and proceedures” instead of “arrested and charged with rape/first degree murder/etc”, there is NO amount of words that will make me have any trust in any department. BUT, BUT, THE VAST MAJORITY ARE GOOD. Really, well, the “vast majority” then completely surround and support those “just a few bad apples”. Those “few bad apples” are known to their co-workers, their personalities are known and the environment they work in is known. If, and a big if, an individual officer has a psychotic break and jsut “goes off”, that is one thing. What we are witnessing is not that, it is a culture of “Us VS Them”, and from my conversations, every citizen is “them”. IF you turn a blind eye to the evil, does not that make you complicit in said evil? If you KNOW that joe is going to rob the bank down the road, you do not stop him, but “facillitate” same by laughing at his plans, does that not make you an accessory before the fact? Do we hear all the good stories, no we do not. But, in my opinion, until the cops actively and publicly purge every jack-wagon they have on the payroll, from top to bottom, I will not trust them and am on a higher alert level around them than a bunch of hoodlums. Your milage may vary.

    LC MuscleDaddy growls and barks:

    The thing to keep in mind here is that these things happen because they can – and they can because this is the society that We The People have allowed to develop.

    Madison spoke of a ‘Moral Citizenry’ as a basis for enduring liberty – understanding that a people who can be trusted to do the right thing have no particular need for a centralized enforcement of such.

    Americans made a pretty good go of that until everyone came home from WWII, popped out a lot of babies and said “My Kids Will Have It Better & Will Never Have To Struggle Through What I did”.

    To their credit, they largely made good on that promise – to their discredit, they neglected to replace Struggle with something else that could instill a like sense of personal responsibility.

    …and then those kids grew…well,… older.

    Enter the middle 1960′s – Imagine the glee with which the Communists, Assorted other Leftists and their useful Idiots realized that “Screw you and your antiquated, patriarchal morality, Man!” was the surest way kick the underpinnings out from beneath what had been, to that point, the model of American Liberty – No Joke, to have something like that fall right into your LAP… and all you have to do from that point is install a couple of “Cool” college professors to chant ‘God is Dead’ to their students.

    Tocqueville said:

    Despotism may govern without faith, but liberty cannot. How is it possible that society should escape destruction if the moral tie is not strengthened in proportion as the political tie is relaxed? And what can be done with a people who are their own masters if they are not submissive to the Deity?

    Remove “faith from the public square” – leave what-is-right up to the slippery mind of the individual and their ‘unique circumstances’ (which they almost never really are, btw) , throw in some political correctness that demands that Adults refrain from making Judgements’ on the actions/decisions of others (which I always thought was supposed to be one the responsibilities of being an adult in the first place) – drop all of that into a bowl and stir – what kind of society do you get?

    Well,… the kind that ends up needing a progressively more Despotic government, just to keep the whole thing from imploding.

    The kind that ends up needing more paramilitaristic police forces, just to maintain the societal power-balance – Remember, this isn’t the ‘Old Days’, when the badge commanded respect even though the words used were kind – that was over the moment the concept of “The Man” was invented.

    Remove the moral rules that bind men’s appetites & drives – replace them with Regulation that enumerates only non-compliance, rather than actual Judgement, making such non-compliance no more troubling at-its-heart than any other technicality… and well…

    Now bring it back around to the Police – remember that they have to not only train to be ‘harder’, but they also have to become personally more comfortable with wearing that gorilla-suit, day-in and day-out – and that’s not something that comes off easily (think ‘police-divorce-rates’). Other people, as a general rule, don’t have to behave like that – so there’s your ‘Us v. Them’ mentality, all neatly pre-packaged.

    Now ALSO consider that LEOs really are Just People – people drawn from the same population that I went on about previously. They don’t come from a better or more moralistic society than the one the rest of us live in – the base-material is EXACTLY the same.

    Any number of us here have said that Police are not necessarily Sheepdogs (any more than Teachers all burn with fervor to educate) – but coming from this sideways-sliding society that We The People have allowed to develop, there is a greater possibility for many of them to be little more than roughly-aimed Wolves – who happen to be on one side of ‘Us v Them’.

    We The People did this – don’t forget that while you’re pointing fingers.

    …which is not an appeal to stop pointing – just a reminder that a dose of self-loathing is appropriate too.

    LC Nala growls and barks:

    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”. Fortunately, I was retired in 1990 before the problems we now see became apparent. Even then there were a few in the ranks who were showing a different kind of law enforcement than we old timers were exercising. It is very hard individually to do anything to cull the herd when it comes to getting rid of questionable types in the force. They usually culled themselves before too long.
    I can see now that it must be substantially worse. My experiences once were that the brotherhood of LEOs were watching each others backs. Now, I’m not comfortable around the current crop even in my neighborhood. Once it was with a sense of pride that I could refer to myself as a former LEO, now not so much.

    A small interaction with the “Man.” Smallest daughter is stopped for speeding by three different agencies. Discussion on jurisdiction for speed trap is determined and said LEO who has jurisdiction proceeds to interrogate smallest, search vehicle, search passengers and search car and trunk for contraband.

    Smallest is accused of evading squad car during pursuit and is threatened with arrest if search of vehicle is not allowed. Now smallest is and two other passengers are Dean’s list engineering students. They were going to the captain of the FSAE team’s lake house for a cookout. They had groceries in the vehicle trunk and a six pack belonging to the 21 year old team member.

    Four white kids in a Volkswagon traveling too fast on a divided highway with Illinois plates. Local LEO thinks he’s found a Chicago drug gang cell in the middle of his little back water burb. Scaring the crap out of four kids so he can perform extralegal search and seizure.

    Yes she received a citation for speeding but the lesson was not what was intended. From now on she is treating every LEO as not officer friendly, the way she was taught as a kid. From now on she clams up, gives only name, rank and serial number and asks for to speak to her lawyer before answering any questions. We secured her an attorney and he will be handling this as he knows the towns DA. I’m sure an accommodation will be made to pay the speeding ticket and get the evading part dismissed. And so another erosion of the trust in the police happens because of one bad apple. On grain of sand at a time…

    Rogue, I do not “bash” leo’s lightly. I was raised to respect cops, and did for most of my life. I have only come to the above position over the last few years, as an adult with eyes (now) wide open. I regret that most of my life has been as a sleeping sheep, not being able to connect the dots that are glowing brightly right in front of me.
    Muscle: I do acknowledge that I HAVE ALLOWED THIS to come to this point. But, I will not quietly sit down and allow it to continue. I want my children (grown) to be able to raise my grandchildren in an actually free country, not the direction that it is going. Whatever I have to do, I will, BECAUSE I, and MY GENERATION, DID NOT FIX IT! That does not mean that, once awake to the problem, that you get to ignore it. You either accept the slavery that is coming, or fight to end it. I will not submit! It would be preferable that it be done peaceably, but I am unaware of any country on earth where that has occurred.

    Connecticut is where the end is starting. I have zero faith in the citizens to stand up as one. To many of them are far more concerned about Justin Beibers latest hair style to wake up and see their country is dying.

    SoTXPatriot growls and barks:

    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. However, as a current LEO, I disagree with the notion that “upstanding LEO’s” are disappearing. I still believe that those of us who swore to uphold the laws AND the constitution still outnumber those on power-trips. I heard mention of sheepdogs in previous comments. Yes, I can proudly state I AM a sheepdog. I probably patrol one of the worst areas of my city, and gladly do it. I came to realize early on that there WERE law-abiding citizens, good people many of them, who live where they do for reasons of their own. It is MY job to protect them from the dealers and gang bangers infesting OUR neighborhood. During patrol, I will frequently touch base with many of the citizens who have decided to stand up and work with us to clean up their neighborhoods.

    On another note, closer to the subject of this post, thankfully I live in Texas and “most likely” won’t see any unconstitutional laws being passed any time soon. I prefer having our citizens armed, as when they need me in seconds, I and my backup are minutes away. By being armed, they can keep the wolves at bay until I can get there and provide aid in removing the wolf completely.

    Retired Spook growls and barks:

    Had occasion, some years back, to be involved in a domestic violence incident in the parking lot of the local Walmart. In this case, I did not have my normal carry piece, but was armed with a single-action Ruger Vaquero (in .45 Colt, as G-d intended single-actions to be). It was sufficient to stop the incident, and keep Bubba Wifebeater at bay until the local gendarmarie arrived.

    Of the five LEOs on the scene, one wanted load data (Highway Patrol), two were happy that there was much less paperwork involved than would otherwise have been the case (county deputies), and two wanted to bust my chops for being a “civilian waving a gun around in the Walmart parking lot.” (City cops).
    I pointed out the following:
    1. I have a military ID card (retired, but still military). That means I’m not a civilian, but they are.
    2. I wasn’t waving the weapon in question, I was holding it pretty steady on the center of Bubba’s considerable mass.
    3. That I had probably fired more rounds in practice THAT MONTH than they had fired in the last five years.
    4. That Bubba was half my age and twice my size, and if they thought I was going to the mat with him, especially with him having a tire iron in hand, they were out of their duck-fuckin’ minds.

    County guys made sure that I didn’t even have to go to court over the incident, and called me when Bubba got released from durance vile, to ask if I wanted to have a restraining order issued. We had a good laugh over that one.

    Thus we have come to the point that there are LEOs that I trust, and LEOs that I wouldn’t piss on if they were burning.

    (Incidentally, the young lady in the incident remarried a couple of years ago. Five months ago they had a bouncing baby boy. They named him after me! How cool is that?)

    Watch gun owners burn registration forms
    Insurrection over firearms spreads to New York

    A looming crisis for Connecticut law enforcement officials – the potential that they have 350,000 new felons in their state – soon will expand to New York, where officials have set an April 15 deadline for owners to register weapons that have features the state says are characteristic of “assault” weapons.

    The two states are among many re-defining ordinary guns that as many as hundreds of thousands of people own and demanding a registration that Second Amendment supporters view as a violation of the U.S. Constitution.

    The NY2A Grassroots Coalition recently met in Saratoga Springs, inviting the public to burn registration forms.

    The report said members of the coalition handed out copies of the “assault” gun registration form and burned them on an outdoor grill.

    More from “Officer Friendly:”

    “Just wanted to thank you for the very fair article on the Police officer in CT. While yes, the conversation got very heated, once he [Officer Joseph Peterson] was seen as a cop, he should have stepped WAY back. A lot of news articles are putting my quote in of me saying he would put Jews in Ghettos as the reason he went off. He actually went off well before that. I literally asked him if a law was passed to put Jews in the Ghettos, would you? He literally said “Now you are being silly…but if its the law, I enforce it; I don’t make them.”

    Bones says:

    Emporer, your site, your rules, but at least let me vent before you chew me up and spit me out… On that note, I do not trust ANY cops, and I would not care if it were YOU in that uniform.

    Mheh, Bones, I guess I should clarify a bit.

    What you’re expressing is a growing distrust of cops as a whole, not an outright hatred based on nothing but the uniform that they wear. While I do not personally share that distrust, I guess I must have been lucky in my interactions or the area I live in, I can certainly understand where you’re coming from based on your experiences.

    If your, or anybody else’s, experiences have been leaning heavily towards the bad side, then you’d be a fool to not take that into account in your daily life. There are several zip codes of differences between “better be safe and assume that this situation may turn bad” and “that guy wears a uniform, therefore he is an asshole (as opposed to might be an asshole) and I should treat him accordingly.”

    It’s the latter I have a problem with, not the former. The former just makes me sad because it didn’t use to be that way, but I can see how things have gradually progressed (“progressives”, natch) to a point where one might reasonably feel that way.

    I will caution, though, probably needlessly because nobody in this pack ought to be unfamiliar with it, that news stories are anecdotes and that, moreover, the fascist Gestapo cop who shoots up grandpa for reaching for his cane WILL make the news whereas the ordinary cop who lets Joe Schmo off with a warning because it’s been a bad day for Joe and hey, why throw the book at him just because he wasn’t paying attention and ran a stop sign at 3AM when nobody was about will NOT make the news.

    Myself being stopped by a highway patrol man at Oh Dark Thirty for doing 85 in a 65 in the pouring rain and cold (which he was standing outside in) only to end up discussing my Kimber and what a lucky arse I am to have married a woman who would give me such a thing as an anniversary present (I AM a lucky arse) and then be told to slow down a bit so I wouldn’t reward her love with making her a widow ALSO does not make the news. And that’s a true story.

    Keep in mind that the “news” is about pushing copy, nothing else.

    But I completely understand how others might not feel the same way and, accordingly, have become weary. That’s no different from me going into condition orange if, for some reason, I find myself in a poor black neighborhood at night. It’s not because I hate black people or think they’re all assholes because of their skin color, it’s because statistics prove that I’m in more potential danger there than I’d be in Plano at the same time of day.

    But if I took that to the next level and said “all black people are The Enemy and must be treated accordingly”, then I’d be no better than the sick fucks at StormFront. I don’t want any of that shit near me. People are individuals, individuals who are members of groups.

    Your knowledge of their group is what you use when you approach them and don’t know them as individuals. Your actual treatment of them on an individual basis must be based on what you learn about them as individuals or you’re no better than the asshole who says “Germans were behind WWI and WWII, therefore all Germans are militaristic, murderous fucks and I must treat every single one of them as militaristic, murderous fucks.”

    I will say that I’ve watched police forces be redeemed first hand, it happened in my little sleepy depressed area. It happened thanks to voters, the now retired local sheriff and the now retired mayor.
    Bad apples, while enjoying union protection were made pariahs, they very quickly either got with the program or quit. The mayor demanded meticulous book keeping, logs of every minute spend on the job. The sheriff switched the uniforms to tan and green, (Not all he did but an example) While there was grousing among the officers that they looked like park rangers, he kept telling them that “Bad Guys wore black” in a private moment he told me it was more to make his officers examine their own actions than it was public perception. It all worked…. we now have great local forces. That is not to say there are not still institutional problems, but those problems are more on the state and federal level.
    We are still reaping the rewards of their tenure in office.
    We have a few local guys who, on their own time, take turns helping at pick up/drop off at the local elementary schools. They give the kids high fives and such. I’ve watched them make arrests, I’ve not seen scumbags get bounced off the car.

    You all have to see this: the ATF raids a law-abiding, Marine veteran’s gun store, and you won’t BELIEVE the pretext.

    Be sure to watch the break-in video. The store owner had obtained a COURT INJUNCTION against the ATF, but they proceeded regardless.

    Also, the parts he was selling were not only LEGAL, they had a letter from a state govt. official saying so.

    AND, the real reason the ATF raided his store and smashed his safe open with a SLEDGEHAMMER (feeling violated yet???) was to get the LIST OF HIS CUSTOMERS’ NAMES AND ADDRESSES, which the honorable store owner had REFUSED to provide.

    Watch the video of this grossly outrageously un-Constitutional raid:

    Just a small update from smallest daughter. The officer friendly that was awarded jurisdiction is of the negroid race. Now imagine how that would play out in the news. “Four white honor students from local university terrorized by black cop during traffic stop” You won’t see that headline, it’s not leading the six o’clock news with film at eleven. Obama won’t be announcing on the nightly news shows that smallest daughter looks like his daughters. Nope nothing to see here, move along people. The problem is that this is most likely not the first or last time that this particular officer is/has behaved in this manner.

    How do we citizens root out this behavior? I know what I’m going to do and officer friendly is not going to like it. I’m moving down to the next town over. I’ve already checked and I can run for city council in his jurisdiction. If I am lucky enough to be elected the first order of business will be reviewing all the LEO personnel jackets. The Jack wagons will be asked to resign. The message of accountability has to cut both ways both for the perps and for those that would lord over them. It is up to us to watch the watchers.

    I grew up in NYC and know first hand what police corruption looks like as we lived between a NYC Police Sergeant and a bag man for the Gambino family. There was always a paper bag with dollars and booze trading hands right in front of our house. Just a couple of neighbors being neighborly. Nothing to see here, move along people.

    We the honest have to shed light on the nefarious and bring civility and honor back to this country. Do your part, speak up, write a letter, run for office, do not be silent, be heard not a part of one.

    Liberals are exhausting. Everybody knows that they are trying to slow-boil the frog when it comes to banning guns. They can’t do it all at once, they probably can’t even enforce this law in Connecticut right now, regardless of what this power-tripping ignoramus Vance might think. But they will slowly erode gun rights until they don’t exist anymore. Each new law passed will cause some decent folk to give up and turn in their weapons. Eventually their descendants will forget about gun rights and the number of people opposed to these measures will slowly decrease, enabling even further reductions in gun rights. That’s their plan anyway. For each one of us here at the Rott who says “over my dead body” there will be someone who just gives up the fight.

    We know this. They know this. They know that we know this. But everyone on their side seems to pretend this isn’t true. That should be clear proof to anyone with any sort of intelligence whatsoever that Leftists are, fundamentally, delusional lunatics. Or, at best, they could be called ball-less cowards, unable to actually ADMIT their real position.

    But the Liberals are relentless in their political assault. If any word can describe the majority of Conservatives and Libertarians I see every day, it is “exhausted.” Every attempt to strike back at the Left results in a barrage of accusations of racism, sexism, homophobia or wanting children to die. Before a debate can even be had in the public eye, they force us to run a gauntlet of lies and false accusations. Hence the intellectual exhaustion that faces the Right. Gun control is the only area where we have even been able to — somewhat — hold the line over the years. That effort is Herculean and requires implicit threat of violent revolution. Even then, it seems that all we have been able to accomplish there is to convince men like Vance to send someone else to do the job.

    The Right needs to regain control of the debate and the wider culture. For a time I thought our dominance of the blogging community and talk radio might achieve that, but it was not enough. Put a guy like Bill Whittle up for the Presidency. Maybe that’d help.

    Sorry, Sire, I have to disagree with you on this. It hasn’t been just about pushing copy in years, possibly decades. It is now just as much about pushing their narrative as it is about selling to advertisers. If it were simply about pushing copy, every time a 80 year old grandma was assaulted and defended herself with her deceased husband’s old .38, they would be clamoring for an ‘exclusive’ interview with her. Instead, its only news if she was white and the goblin was ‘of color’ and they can trot out his mommy to talk about how he was such a good boy and never did anything in his life.If it doesn’t fit their narrative, its not reported, even things left completely uncovered by other stations.

    Well, I don’t like to leave THREE comments! but I can’t get the comment editor to work. Anyway, here are the words of an alternate translation of the majestic hymn.

    Guten nacht, alles.

    A mighty fortress is our God, a trusty shield and weapon;
    He helps us free from every need that hath us now overtaken.
    The old evil Foe now means deadly woe; deep guile and great might
    Are his dread arms in fight; on Earth is not his equal.

    With might of ours can naught be done, soon were our loss effected;
    But for us fights the Valiant One, whom God Himself elected.
    Ask ye, who is this? Jesus Christ it is.
    Of Sabbath Lord, and there’s none other God;
    He holds the field forever.

    Though devils all the world should fill, all eager to devour us.
    We tremble not, we fear no ill, they shall not overpower us.

    This world’s prince may still scowl fierce as he will,
    He can harm us none, he’s judged; the deed is done;
    One little word can fell him.

    The Word they still shall let remain nor any thanks have for it;
    He’s by our side upon the plain with His good gifts and Spirit.
    And take they our life, goods, fame, child and wife,
    Let these all be gone, they yet have nothing won;
    The Kingdom ours remaineth.

    Both sides have a subset of individuals who aren’t quite in touch with reality. On “our side” there are those who think that we’ll just gun the bastards down and we’ll all live happily ever after, granted with a few losses on our side who die in glorious, valiant combat, and on “their side” we have those who think pretty much the same, only coming from the other view. That sure, there will be casualties, but it will be mainly the “bad guys” and then a few martyrs to the cause who will live on as heroes in the glorious aftermath.

    Both are horribly wrong. If this shit hits the fan, there won’t be any winners or losers. Oh, there’ll be the last ones standing, I suppose we could call those “winners” and yes, I do believe that our side will be the ones, but none of them, us, will come out with their souls unscarred, their honors intact and their consciences clean either.

    Amen, Imperator.
