The police are the greatest threat to human liberty in history. Historically, they have been the instruments of oppression throughout the ages. Absent this enforcement mechanism, no member of the political class, that curious professional remora priesthood that plagues societies that usurps power and assumes “delegated powers” not permitted of the serfs that elect them to office or suffer under their dictatorial power could not exist.
The fear of a few bad men is not curbed by putting the worst men in charge.
Members of the same society become policemen who in America manage to make an industry of abuse, kidnapping, maiming and killing under exclusive licensure of the state powers. In other words, you cannot nor do you have the right to steal from your neighbor, physically accost him, kidnap him and murder him if he refuses to obey but a uniform and state-issued badge grants you the power to do so. Not only is the license granted but the full power of the state is brought to bear with funds and assets appropriated at gunpoint to protect the state agents who accost the citizenry that are drained for the monies to pay the occupying army.
