This is a guest blog which was written by @Ripunzelle in reply to my post #Unity I thought it too interesting not to share

wolfinsheepOn the subject of Police and Policing, I have in some way got to go
around the houses here to ‘justify’ why I feel, and therefore
communicate, in the way I do about that subject. I can see that ordinary
Police Officers ARE in a quandary about what is happening to them and
the society they serve. They undeniably do a difficult and at times very
dangerous job. That said, this is a phrase often used carte blanche to
lionise the Police. Let’s be truthful, many people in other walks of
life do difficult and dangerous jobs in different ways. I agree that the
Police often have to deal with and mop up the worst excesses of
humanity. However, the fundamental problem that they, and we face, is
that the system they serve is ultimately no longer worth serving. When I
say that, it may appear to be sweeping, but my understanding of the
design for life we are subject to is undeniably indicative of a system
that is in a downward spiral because of the cause and effect of greed,
vulture Capitalism and Elitism.

The society we exist in is not fair, it is not free and it is not
civilised. It is a stage-managed show in which a tiny minority of greedy
and privileged arseholes conspire to use coercion, deception and plastic
morality to wave an imaginary carrot in front of human nature. The
simplest way of summing this up is to say that ‘the only thing that
Power respects – IS power’. Western ‘democracy’ has been tainted and
corrupted by the design and goals of Corporate desire. To this end,
politicians have become glove-puppets in a system where tax is collected
and revenue is used to beggar and divide people and repress truth and
freedom. In a nutshell, for me and I suspect many other people, Western
democracy has become essentially Corporate Fascism. This design is
failing rapidly, and the people who are ultimately in charge are
becoming increasingly desperate to retain control, at any cost. To me,
this is painfully obvious and yet many people simply refuse to see
things for what they are out of fear.

The Police as a force, as an organisation, have rapidly become the
foot-soldiers of a system that no longer has any true moral authority.
This may be less true in Britain than other countries, but one would
have to be blind not to see the trend in brutal disregard for ordinary
people across the Globe. Over the last thirty years, the Police have
become something increasingly detached from their original purpose, and
it seems to me that very soon there will be very few Police and more and
more Drones and forms of electronic monitoring and compliance. Secondary
to that point is the fact that the ‘authorities’ are more and more
frequently using small truths to tell huge lies in order to provide
themselves with monsters and enemies by which they justify their
positions, for example ‘terrorism’. The proliferation of secret courts,
communications monitoring, byzantine and ever changing criminal justice
systems, the NDAA in America and constant barrages of pap legislation
across Europe can only suggests that there has been a revolution from
the top down. The only comparable historical event is the rise of
National Socialism and Hitler’s Germany. For most people, Fascism
requires the presence of Nazi uniforms, jackboots and concentration
camps to have authenticity. I contend that Corporate Fascism has
reviewed and re-styled itself to become less obvious and more
‘appealing’ to the masses by way of entrenching itself within what
appears to be a democracy. It is for this reason I proselytize
revolution as being the only true remedy for the current political
system, of which the Police, as confused as they are, are a significant

The Police, as a force and organisation, have not done themselves any
favours. In the last couple of years alone, between the revelations of
Hillsboro, the shooting of Mark Duggan, the canard of the London riots
and the death of Iain Tomlinson, to name but a small fraction of the
controversies lately involving Police integrity, the Police as a force
have become deeply mired in corruption and profoundly exposed as
unreliable and ‘playing on behalf of incumbent Governments. Bodies such
as the IPCC are responsible for much of this and the latest debacle
regarding Police Commissioners is further proof that the Police ARE
politicised to benefit a very small minority that can comfortably trade
‘truth’ for political convenience. I understand fully that 98percent of
serving officers will be as far removed from these machinations as you
and I are. However, commuting the actions of people paid and entrusted
to serve the public good down to ‘a few bad apples’ is simply not good
enough, nor is it in any way consistent. The Police as a force and the
Police as individuals need to wake up to what is happening to the world,
like the rest of us, and act accordingly.

The ‘plebgate’ affair is just one more knife in the back of truth and
reason. It appears that the Police, motivated by the worst excesses of
the Coalition, have conspired to expose the attitude of the Cabinet –
then adding problems by introducing a ‘witness’ that wasn’t there and
whom appears to have been a Policeman, as opposed to a ‘citizen’. If the
Police have done what they have done because of the attitude of the
Cabinet, they have fucked up – massively. I smell a fat nasty political
rat, in that it may well have been the ‘political’ side of the Police
who orchestrated this schism in order to pile up even more reason for
‘implemented change’, further disgracing and bringing in to question an
already disgraced organisation.

As bad as this is for ordinary Copper’s, I rather feel that if they
want stability, change, reason and decency to prevail it is high time
that they came out in force and stood WITH the people they are paid to
protect and serve – instead of blindly accepting increasing
Totalitarianism whilst losing jobs, hours, pay and security. The whole
system is deeply flawed and needs reducing to rubble in order to remove
the protective barrier that keeps the Elite safe from the consequences
of their actions. This is why I espouse what I do. In the end, being
nice, patient and reasonable will not change anything. The people we are
dealing with are smiling Assassins using the media, wealth, power,
privilege and pap litigation to make themselves credible – plausible
liars with a mandate of hegemony. If Unity is to prevail to bring about
change, all people must wake up and act accordingly, not least of all
the Police.
