There are no "peace officers"...

When I was a boy in the 60's we had "peace officers". Today we have "Law Enforcement Officers" and the difference is like night and day. I remember being pulled over for certain offenses as a teen and the peace officers were polite and non-threatening. They usually gave us a warning and sent us on our way with a "drive safe". Although they carried a side arm they would almost never unholster it. "Shoot first" was pretty much unheard of and unless fired upon there was little fear that a peace officer would ever fire at you or injure an innocent bystander. "Law Enforcement Officers" (goons) will shoot you for saying a word. Shoot you in the back if you try to run (unheard of in the 60's). Taser you to death in many cases because you dared to speak of the "constitution" or is you say anything about them violating their "oath".

In short, the peace officer would try to serve the citizen and the law enforcement officer tries to subjugate the slave...
