National Police Week: May 15-21

Sunday, May 15th, 2011

Just thought I’d let you know that National Police Week starts today.

I didn’t see anything about a National Victims of Police Misconduct Week, though.  Nothing about a Puppycide Week, either.

    Well, in Indiana anyway. But they’ll own us coast to coast soon enough!

    They need all the help they can get, what with the ongoing War on Cops and all.

    I see the Indiana Supreme Court ruled that homeowners have NO right to deny a police officer entry,for any reason, without a warrant,reversing 700+ years of law originating with the Magna Carta.

    Even off duty officers can demand access to anyone’s home in Indiana for any or no reason and now there is no right to refuse the illegal search.

    Welcome to the NWO.

    Damn. You can’t make comments at the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund. I wanted to ask them when Police Malfeasance Week was.

    Fascinating reading for Agitator-tot-types:

    http://www.constitution.org/lrev/roots/cops.htm

    “ARE COPS CONSTITUTIONAL?

    Police work is often lionized by jurists and scholars who claim to employ “textualist” and “originalist” methods of constitutional interpretation. Yet professional police were unknown to the United States in 1789, and first appeared in America almost a half-century after the Constitution’s ratification. The Framers contemplated law enforcement as the duty of mostly private citizens, along with a few constables and sheriffs who could be called upon when necessary. This article marshals extensive historical and legal evidence to show that modern policing is in many ways inconsistent with the original intent of America’s founding documents. The author argues that the growth of modern policing has substantially empowered the state in a way the Framers would regard as abhorrent to their foremost principles.” …><…

    I had to drive through the Mall area of DC yesterday, and it was a fucking sea of jackboots.

    fucking prison guards and prosecutors and judges will be lobbying for their own weeks, too.

    pretty soon, there’ll be propaganda parades, with tanks and tazers and swat teams and shackled prisoners marching through the streets…

    So this is the week that DC residents are forced to tolerate hordes of drunken out-of-towners parked in front of fire hydrants waking them up in the middle of the night?

    #10 – not a bad website.

    Thanks for the link to that article. Very thought-provoking.

    Time to make my annual pilgrimage down to DC to take a leak on the National Police Memorial.

    It’s my favorite time of year! I just love all of the added safety with so many extra police officers in DC!

    In seriousness, what is the law regarding police officers from other jurisdictions open-carrying in places where it would be illegal for anyone else to do so? For example, cops from across the country swarm the Metro carrying firearms, but I’m sure I couldn’t do so. Is this just some sort of “professional courtesy”, or what’s the deal?
