The woman was charged with resisting arrest and fined for not wearing a mask although allegedly she had a medical exemption.

The officer was cleared of any wrongdoing.

  1. Truth or not truth

    Cooperate or don’t cooperate

    Submit or don’t submit

    We decide for ourselves or they DICKtate to us

    It’s pretty simple.

    Somehow though I just don’t see it being easy.

    For many folk, freedom is addictive.

    For other folk, control is addictive.

    Looks like the main event(s) are stewing in the pot as we speak.

  2. My first thought when I saw that:
    The officer is employing deadly force. For what is, at most, a nonviolent misdemeanor. There is only one response: deadly force.

    The eyes. He might take me to the ground, but my fingers would be two knuckles deep in his eye sockets.

  3. I wonder if there is any difference in the minds and hearts of the Aussie police and most cops in what once was America? Even though my brother is a cop, he presides over a small-town department in the rural Midwest, where nearly everything is different from metro areas. In a small town you don’t go around choking people for alleged misdemeanors, or you won’t be there long. On the other hand…when they are ordered to arrest people who refuse the vaxx, will the rank and file cops in s—hole blue cities obey those orders? I admit I’m more and more cynical these days, but I fear the answer, for most, will be “yes.”

    1. I’ve lived in small towns most of my life. I’m talking less than 6,000, even down to four hundred in one town. Most of where I have lived was unincorporated.

      One town was less than 4,000 and when they decided to incorporate, they got their own PD. My theory was those officers of the new PD were mad because they didn’t get hired on at their first choices – the larger cities. Because every one of those officers were real jerks. They loved their authority over the people. Quite a few of them were reprimanded often enough that they didn’t last out the year. The problem was more of the same right behind them.

      Another town just up the road was incorporated but for years used the Sheriff. Then one year they got their own PD. Same story. There are lots of stories of the mistreatment and abuse of authority. Some will make you cringe and seek vengeance.

      I’ve been face down spread eagle over the hood of a squad with a shotgun in my back because I looked like a suspect. I have been followed for miles while driving into town then, at the grocery store parking lot, two cops draw on me. Because somehow they thought I was a big time drug dealer. Or, at the very moment I walked out of a bar I was detained for drunk driving. These and more are the antics of the small town cop.

      Maybe that seems justified policing. But to the people it looks very thuggish. In some of the towns I lived it really was like Mayberry. Until the cops showed up. Small wonder that a heavy hand produces resentment and thuggery in return.

      Nowadays when I read about or see a bad cop I see a whole department complicit. The respect in them I was raised to have is gone and by their own hand.

      Oh, a recent example; Because Jeff Sessions when AG and his war on drugs caught up legitimate need for, say pain medicines, my doctor found a way to circumvent a lot of the BS. I signed a written contract with my doctor that contained the clause that if I ever lost control of the Rx I would report it to the police and to my doctor.

      So when my drug addicted nephew stole my pain meds I called the police. On the phone I clearly stated the reason for wanting to make a report. Three cops showed up in three separate squads. When I opened the door, one was at the door, another had ducked around the side with his pistol drawn, the third stood behind his vehicle across the street with a rifle at low ready. The one at the side yard shortly left the scene while the one across the street remained. The cop at the door taking my report began by asking me about who I associate with, where I might frequent, and such. Several times I stated I need to report the theft. To no avail. He growled when I asked him to take my report. He then replied that he could take me in if I wasn’t going to cooperate.

      Make of it what you will. I no longer trust any cop unless and until they prove to me they are worthy of respect. Two contacts stand in my mind of how it should go. One a senior highway patrolman who was every bit of calm and kind, the other also an ‘old timer’ who also showed a modicum of respect and civility. I cooperate by avoiding furtive movements, not looking suspicious, and keeping my hands in full view. I’ll say sir and thank you but not because I bow to authority. Less experienced cops seem to not understand that. They’re too new at the department so it must be the academy which teaches the public is the enemy. Combine that with small town and you have the conditions for a conflagration.

      (wordy, I know. so what?)

  4. Work with what ya got
    And they got Brownies.

    If’in i was a aussy in Auschina i would be collecting lots of brownie juice.
    Might even find a interesting way to get it into the Aussy SS veins.

  5. First thought: And this is why we have the Second Amendment.

    Second thought: If that were my upstairs window and I were witnessing that, I’d be handing the phone to my wife and grabbing a rifle.

    My claim in court is that I didn’t believe they were police, just criminal thugs dressed up to appear like police so they can assault and rob people with impunity. As evidence: they were choking the poor girl out, which is just not something real police officers do, ergo they must be criminals.

    I think most juries in America outside Blue sh*t-holes would be sympathetic.

  6. I’ve always been a huge support of law enforcement, but “they” are doing everything they can to lose my support.
    Do they really think what they are doing is right and just?

    1. Re: respect and support of law enforcement.

      It’s how I was raised. Later, I didn’t like waking up to seeing the cops in a different light. I fought against that reality, I reasoned that only sketchy people would be set against law enforcement.

      I was forced to change my perspective. My humanity is lessened. I didn’t like it then and I don’t like it now. The difference is now I am filled with great resolve. This was done to me by others. Those others wear uniforms and badges.
