leo's and po's

LEO’S AND PO’S

Today we discuss the difference between our current crop of law enforcement officers and the old school peace officers. You might bark at me that this has nothing to do with the apocalypse and your eyes might glaze over and you might actually for the first time in over fifteen years actually think unkind thoughts about me, but I submit that once again you are misguided and unkindly. Semantics matter. Just think of the difference between the War Department and our current Defense Department. The old group was just as imperialistic ( the South was the first foreign colony to be exploited under armed occupation ) as the new, but with the old name citizens had no misconception as to what our military did. We were used to using genocide to take the land and resources we wanted. But under the guise of defense, few citizens today actually think we make war. Rather, we defend our homeland. And a direct path from there to here was our current blind acceptance of enemy domestic terrorists who are disappeared with nary a whimper from the flock.

When you have a Peace Officer, the gentleman is there to Keep The Peace. A LEO, on the other hand, has no interest in keeping the peace ( this is secondary, if a consideration at all ). Rather, he enforces laws. A PO wouldn’t care if an opium den was operating, as long as no patron was hurt or robbed. As long as they were circumvent in their vice. Don’t get the town women folk in an uproar and things moved along nicely. A LEO will rush in guns blazing to stop people from hurting themselves ( we had to destroy the village to save it ) because a politician decided that a victimless crime should be against the law. A PO can sit around and do not much of anything, as long as the peace is maintained. A LEO advances in a career the more laws he enforces ( non-watering lawn days, speed limits, littering ).

When I was an MP in the Army, we didn’t really mess with law enforcement. Oh, sure, when we wanted to be dicks we harassed folks about petty crap. But mainly we were content to sit around and do as little as possible. And we could get around that because the military has a culture that has a self-policing mechanism ( all successful cultures do-which the American one ain’t ). You need a final arbitrator and enforcer, but a culture should be strong enough to police itself successfully most of the time. When a society has the police there to enforce bureaucratic dictates, you have a sick or dying culture. When the cops are just there to keep almost everyone honest, and they don’t have to do all that much, you have a strong society. The police doing more is always bad news.

  2. I don't care what your ex-wives say - you know your sheet. I'm trying to cut down on the usage of obscenity and profanity so some words are intentional.

    1. A benefit of substituting swear words is you sound witty. Well, I do anyway.

  3. Damn! http://news.yahoo.com/blogs/sideshow/cop-arrests-on-duty-firefighter-over-parking-feud-150128011.html?vp=1

    "Good thing it was caught on camera, or it would be tough to believe: A California Highway Patrol officer put an on-duty Chula Vista firefighter in handcuffs for refusing to move his truck while tending to victims of a car crash.

    As he was being handcuffed on the side of the 805 Freeway near Orange County, the firefighter, 12-year veteran Jacob Gregoire, told reporters who had gathered, "I just want to let you all know he’s arresting me." "
    Unholy sheet indeed. Just sit back and let the world prove you right.

    Interesting blogger

    Been working alot lately at da kingdom, whilst other lower paid departments are stuggling to get hours. Also LOTS of dem "FORENERS" are visiting. Not so many USA as before.

    Don't expect the boys in blue to rally to the people until their hours are cut or unpaid. Just saying...Schadenfreude!!!!
