Its Time to Remove Guns From All Police Officers

and to do this, we must at the same time end the Drug War as well as the war on adult prostitution. All three must come to an end.

Ending the Drug War, the War on Prostitution and Removing Guns from the Police as a standard weapon will have major repercussions inside and outside our American culture. It will do three good things for society:

1) Decrease violence in America and across the globe and make communities more of a participant in its own policing; ie safer.

2) End the growing Nazi-spy-Police State and the alienation of citizens to its police. Police, unarmed with guns, will be forced to take a completely different tactic when apprehending and arresting. Indeed, all other tools such as Mase-spray and Baton-clubs and electric-Tasers should also be removed from the police's arsenal of weapons to use for apprehending civilians.

3) Police, unarmed, will now be forced to seek civilian compliance to all apprehensions. To do this, they will engage family and community in its apprehensions. An unarmed police means a whole new respect for civil rights, Miranda rights, warrants for arrest, and a new tactic that seeks cooperation and compliance. It requires the Police to pursue a policy of "slow apprehension" and "family-community" participation in the apprehension. This is a HUGE social-community change that CAN and WILL happen once we disarm our nation's Police.

Your thoughts?

Is this an entirely crazy idea?

Well one country does not allow its cops to carry guns, since the 19th century!

Free market law enforcement and a bounty system

Problem solved.

Dumb.

You go figure out why. Sheesh.

If..

..you disarm the Cops, the people will insist on disarming plumbers and waitresses.

Just To See How Frankenstein Would React

How fun would it be to demand that all cops are disarmed just to see how hypocritically the anti gun nuts would react to such an idea?

skippy

God imagine if the anti-gun

God imagine if the anti-gun nuts got what they want and all guns were taken away from us? I guess we'd all have to carry around mid-evil weaponry for protection and you know what - getting hacked by a sword hurts WAAAAAY more than getting shot and is far more lethal. That’s one of three things I always ask anti-gun people:

1. Would you prefer to be shot or hacked with a sword or smashed with a mace?
2. In protection of your life would you rather shoot someone from 10 feet away or feel the blood drip from your hands when you run someone through with a blade?
3. If your so anti-gun why don’t you post a gun free zone sign in your yard?

Wouldn't it be better

if we just disarm the whole world?Then no one would have any weapons to hurt anyone,and everyone would be safe.And that sounds about as achievable as the possibility of disarming the police.....

That has nothing to do with

That has nothing to do with employment.

No

Broom handles, shovels and even pencils can be used as weapons therefore it is impossible to disarm the world. To disarm police, just pass a law stating that while on duty, they are prohibited from possessing any offensive weapons. Any officer found to violate this would get his or her head removed from their neck in full view of every officer in the precinct and I assure you there would not be many who would make that mistake after witnessing a beheading.

Many people are attracted to cop work because they get to be tough guys, drive around in fast cars, carry a gun and boss around folks. Disarming them and educating them as to their servant status would go a long way towards getting these mental degenerates out of the legal system.

Why do you think it would be difficult to disarm cops?

What part of "shall not be infringed" ........

.....do you people not understand?

Free market capitalism isn't right for America because it works better. It's right because it's free (and it works better).

Woof!

Perhaps some

Perhaps some clarification is needed. As private individuals, I think cops should have guns but not ever when they are on duty, at least beat cops who are interacting with the public.

Cops also need to have it pounded into their heads that they are servants like bellboys and chambermaids who need to show respect to their superiors, the taxpayers. And no, they are not taxpayers themselves, they are net tax consumers. They consume more taxes than they pay therefore they don't really pay any taxes.

As employees of the tax

As employees of the tax paying public, the public has every right to lawfully disarm them. They arent employed and payed by God. Their paychecks dont float down from the heavens.

That doesn't apply to

That doesn't apply to employment. Police officers are free to leave their jobs if they feel unsafe.

.....

Agree with you completely,Snake.Some people just don't get it.....

I have advocated that for years.

I would only issue them handcuffs, a whistle and a radio. No nightsticks, no tasers, no pepper spray or the like.

As long as PDs go out of their way to hire stupid people and the courts have ruled that it is okay for PDs to reject intelligent job applicants based solely upon their intelligence, then we need to ensure that they do not have the ability to easily harm others.

Also, my best guess is that not one in a hundred LEOs has been properly trained regarding what is legal and what is not, therefore how can they be expected to "enforce the law?"

Think of it this way, you you hand a loaded Glock to a chimpanzee? I sure as hell wouldn't.

Don't stop just short of the NWO goal line

Ha.

Boo

They are people too.

It's time, instead, to start thinking about what makes corruption the rule rather than the exception.

Keep local sheriffs armed,

Keep local sheriffs armed, increase funding.
Disarm/disband/defund/reduce all federal ABC agencies. DEA FBI NSA AFT ETC ETC

localize the power to people actual living where they work and make them accountable(and thus respectable) to the community.

Really...

I don't want the local police disarmed any more than I want my neighbor disarmed. You are correct when you conclude that repeal of non-violent prohibition laws would all but stop the police state in its tracks and begin the process of repairing the relationship between police and citizen. So why disarm local police when their duties revert back to stopping and apprehending violent criminals?

I do believe that all federal agents should be disarmed as they are in violation of the "Posse Comitatus Act." The US Government bypasses this law by saying that the law applies to military only and that it does not apply to their alphabet agencies. The problem with that claim is that these agencies are indistinguishable from the military as they recieve military training and weapons. Just because the government says that you don't see what you see, does not make it so. If federal agents need assistance in aprehending a fugitive or serving a warrant, they need to use local resources.

I guess I'm not alone

I also like the idea from Hawaii where all cop cars have a light

light atop them. It turns out citizens feel safer when they ( boys in blue) can always be seen and accounted for.I further suggest cops wear full clown suits including red noses and extremely over sized shoes.

Aaron Russo, Nikola Tesla, Ron Paul, I'm jus' sayin'

Yep.

I agree.
