Quote of the Day: The Violent Warrior Cop

warrior cop

Quotes from a “33-page slide show used to train cadets for the Kentucky State Police encouraged ethical and moral decision-making, selflessness, pride and honor.” ( The Washington Post)

“The very first essential for success is a perpetually constant and regular employment of violence.”

— Adolph Hitler

“A warrior must possess certain traits, protect certain things and have the courage to do both at all costs.”

— Unknown

“Private and public life are subject to the same rules; truth and manliness will carry you through the world much better than policy, or tact, or expediency, or any other word that was ever devised to conceal a deviation from a straight line.”

— Robert E. Lee

Be a loving father, spouse, and friend as well as the ruthless killer.

[The page also includes instructions on how to effectively use violence, recommending that cadets are] “able to meet violence with greater violence” [and have] “a mind-set void of emotion, where perception, analysis, and response merge into one process.”

— Kentucky State Police Lt. Curt Hall

“It is always more difficult to fight against faith than against knowledge.”

— Adolph Hitler

    So, here we are. A country that could re-elect a white supremacist, that is how close the count is. And this idea of using fucking HITLER to train the police? How could anyone doubt that American police are infested with Nazis? Oh right, there are literally people who now DEFEND these motherfuckers. “Oh, THOSE Nazis aren’t the ones who are going to kill Jews, just, you know, the other people we don’t like: Black people who don’t know their place, liberals, leftists, Dems, atheists, non-Christians, uppity women, illegal immigrants.”

    The last couple years I’ve only been happy that my parents didn’t live until now. This is not the America that they taught me to love. We’re NOT a country of love and acceptance, of a great melting pot. I’m not eager to die and hope to live another 20 to 30 years. But when I think of all these things…death certainly seems more peaceful.

    Because of the BLM movement I started learning more about the history of police and policing in America. It’s not a pretty history. It’s rooted in violent racism, thuggery, and protecting white people’s property. It wasn’t rooted in protecting people.

    Home of the brave, land of the free… (gag me with a spoon)
    The United States of America is the most violent, warmongering nation on earth. It’s prisons are full to the brim of the disenfranchised. It is led by a rich bully narcissist who was ELECTED! Wake up, USA.

    Out here in Southern California we see these warrior cops almost daily. I read Police One, a cop magazine, to see what makes this type of person tick. It’s truly terrifying to see how the police have melded with Fascist politicians and their philosophy. The LAPD is notorious for this, as the whole country knows of them by now. Recently they arrested a reporter from NPR, after some Sheriff’s deputies were ambushed and shot. She was at the hospital reporting on protesters there, when the cops charged at her and tackled her.
