Think sobriety protects you from "The War On Drugs?" Think again.

"Keeley said his wife and 9-year-old accompanied him to the home on Sunday to clean it up and get it ready for new tenants. Inside the home, Keeley said he found eight bags of narcotics hidden behind the walls.

Keeley said he immediately called the authorities, but he was shocked by their reaction. Officers interrogated him and his wife before arresting them on charges of tampering with evidence, he said.

Keeley said officers threatened to send their 9-year-old to the Department of Family and Children Services, but a neighbor stepped up to watch him."

i had the wonderful

i had the wonderful opportunity of being homeless and walking across the state for a month, zig-zagging across the state, actually.

A fellow homeless man and i laughed about how much people in Georiga worship the police. they seriously worship the police like they're gods. the first thing they want to do is call the cops when something happens.


Remember when

It was "protect and serve". Now its just "law enforcement."

We are in another war for our Independence.

We MUST Serve on Juries, Folks

This is where we can make our votes really count.

What do you think?

I witness police

driving without seatbelts, rolling stops, turning without signaling, running yellow/red lights without their lights on. I got pulled over late one night because my tire was on the white line...!! I had to ask ask if he was serious and I was issued a warning. I video taped police with their tires on the white line, on cell phones while driving and other infractions listed above with clear images on the license plate and face of the officers and sent it to the local news. They never did anything with the video but it makes my blood boil the police think they are excluded for the same infractions they hold the public accountable for!!

Finally pissed off enough to spread the word of Dr. Paul
Here's song I wrote for a close friend and wounded Iraq war veteran:

one time i was in the

one time i was in the passenger seat of a car and my friend was driving. ahead of our car was a cop car. we were at a weird intersection where you're not allowed to turn left(it was kinda dangerous). my friend wanted to turn left because it would be fastest way to get to the place we were headed. i warned against it seeing as a cop was right in front of us. I then said to him "I bet the cop will just turn left"(bear in mind he wasn't signalling and you're only allowed to go straight on this street).

what do you think happened next? the cop takes the left turn, again without signalling, very casually - no sirens or anything. my friend and I were left flabbergasted.

That's what happens when you go running to the authorities to rat someone out over what they have in their own place. It's called mind your own business, they aren't hurting anyone but themselves. Just either dump it in the trash or put it in the toilet, and move on.

Is anyone here really shocked

This is reality. They are the trained attack dogs of the ellite.

Job security

The PO-leece just arrest and "introduce you to the system" and lets the "system" determine if you're innocent or guilty thereby ensuring job security not only for them but all those who work in the court and prison system!

"It is well enough that people of the nation do not understand our banking and monetary system, for if they did, I believe there would be a rEVOLution before tomorrow morning." - Henry Ford

Don't forget the revenue!

Those folks had to pony up $5K EACH - and that is before they start paying attorneys and court costs and whatever fine they will plea to to get the charges reduced....

Where are the champions of JUSTICE in our legal system? Anybody seen anything like that, anywhere, any time?

Love or fear? Choose again with every breath.

The thing that really get's me is that

there are alot of ambulatory whale excrement that will do these sorts of things. Where have all the good, common sensical people gotten off to ?

Just one last kick in the nuts, then a final deathblow

They are being driven out ... the inmates are running the asylum

I see it in every single job sector - the dead wood is floating to the top as the dedicated professionals are leaving in exasperation at being surrounded by more and more incompetence.

The good, common-sensical people are becoming fed-up with the jerks who get hired via nepotism or cronyism or via outright falsification and disingenuous behavior.

This is, in no way, an ageist remark. I recognize good leadership skills wherever they may exist.

Well from what I have seen

Well from what I have seen
they didn't join the Military or the police force.

Should have kept his mouth shut. NEVER call the cops


Yup. They Broke Rule #1

NEVER talk to the police. Period.

Amen, and can I get an "Hallelujah!" from the choir?

There is no problem so big that it cannot be made worse by dialing 9-1-1.

My husband was a paramedic for 8 years - can you imagine how sad that realization is for us? 20 years ago, firefighters and EMTs were about the finest people on the planet, now they6 stand back and watch kids drown because "the most important thing is to not become victim #2." OK, that makes sense - but your JOB is EMERGENCY services. So there you go, only call 9-1-1 if you have an emergency where there is no emergency and you may get some help... Or you may get tazed and arrested. Its a crap shoot.

Love or fear? Choose again with every breath.

Darn Right Skippy D,

Never call the cops!

Even 40 years ago, as I child, I knew it was best not to get the police involved.

They, for the most part, are ignorant, chest thumping wannabees.

Its way too easy to become a cop.

They will not help those truly in need, because all they care about is their own egos.

I think 5% of the police are good, but that's about all.

Next time, flush that crap down the toilet, or burn it in your wood stove.

I have worked in many hotels and every time there is a police convention, the staff are warned that because the police will be gathering, that damage to the rooms, drugs, intoxicated patrons, and prostitution will be rampant during the police convention.


Couldn't agree more..


Just one last kick in the nuts, then a final deathblow

hate to say it,but....

skippy d is right.The police are not our friends anymore.There are some good police officers.But over all,they are just in place now to show us that we are nothing more than slaves to be whipped & smacked around.Stop calling the police.We don't need them to settle our disputes
The funny thing is,these stupid police are to damn dumb to realize that when the elites are done dealing with us,what do they need police for....???All you LEO's out there think about that when you are dealing with the public.We are you job security.No us=no you!!!

Think about it

What kind of person likes to say "I am sorry but its out of my hands" as they destroy a family or someone's life

for a mans law?

Police/Nanny States

Wow! I thought for sure this would have happened in California. The Orange County Sheriff's Dept is just as bad as this police organization in Georgia. Orange County Sheriff's Dept is the only county in the U.S. that offers a person charged with a misdemeanor a plea bargain of dropping the charges in exchange for your DNA sample. You will then be in a DNA databank where you will be scrutinized against every crime for which they run the DNA databank list. As the Long Beach California Police Officer's Association President said, "There are good guys and bad guys out there. The good guys wear badges and carry guns. Everyone else is a bad guy. We just haven't caught them all yet." Good Luck to us!

Must be more to it... please let there be more to it.

How can this be possible? What idiot authority figure could possibly justify such a thing and keep a straight face?

God forgives always. Man forgives sometimes. But Nature never forgives.

I guess you never called the cops before.

I will never do it again. I called to complain about a neighbors repeated animal abuse. I mean horrible abuse. I had to watch cows and horses put in pens to starve to death more than once. My other neighbor called twice before me. Than I was unable to put in an anonymous call. I was nearly arrested.

I will never, ever call again. I do not care what the circumstance. These guys are not there to help you. They are there to protect their masters and themselves.

Should Just Call

an animal rescue group or the local animal shelter. They usually know animal rescue groups that deal with that kind of stuff. Cops aren't really qualified to deal with animal abuse nor do they really care.


Good lord, NO!!!!

That is what you want - an "animal rights activist" with a badge and gun to back them up....

I am sorry, there is an "animal rights attorney" who is very near and dear to me, but she has lost all compassion for humans. She and her friends from law school would happily shoot a human to save a lab rat. Now, I love animals, but I am rather inclined to try to help the humans if and when it is possible. (Understand that repeated requests to get involved in the destruction of our Constitutional rights are met with a blank stare and some ignorant comment about "living documents" and how antiquated the law of the land is.... so this LAWyer just can't be bothered to defend it. For that matter, I can't find ANY lawyer willing to stick his neck out for HUMAN rights. (Bear and Marcela will have NO legal representation, they are too poor and so the attorney just can't be bothered. The case is SO expensive, I mean, you'd have to play that tape and everything....

Love or fear? Choose again with every breath.

Thanks Skippy, next time I will.

Or maybe I could've just released them.

never get animal cops involved---

they're even worse

Christians should not be warmongers!

It's figures.

I think fead and release will be helpful.

Cops are not qualified for anything.

That's why they are Cops.

Free includes debt-free!


could put a hidden camera after the search....

Ugh. More bs.
