New York City– A viral video shows NYPD officers assaulting a family during a home invasion. Officers force their way into a home without a warrant, claiming that somebody had told them that a fugitive was inside the home. In future, bank robbers should say that somebody had told them that there was a bomb inside the vault, and that they were just there to defuse it.
No search warrant, they were not in a pursuit, there was no fugitive there, and they assaulted the homeowner’s daughter anyway. There was no legal reason for them to enter the home occupied by three women. With the rising number of NYPD cops accused and convicted of rape in recent years, the women in the home obviously had good reason to be cynical about the intentions of a group of over-excited brutes, as they broke in and assaulted one of them.
They lied about the emergency need to search a home without a warrant: searching the home without a warrant while assaulting the homeowner’s daughter is a crime, marking them as criminals.
Should a homeowner be allowed to defend himself from the police? With lethal force? Police accountability organization Cop Block produced an informative video about the subject, embeded at the bottom of this article.
No sane person would advocate opening fire on cops, but when rogue cops behave like they are a law unto themselves, intent on harming you, and as all their fellows join in to protect them, quis custodiet ipsos custodes? Who watches the watchmen? It used to be the police who would reign themselves in. That leaves that unsavory task to the people who pay their salaries: ordinary Americans.
Officers need to understand that there is a growing segment of the American population that celebrate when officers are killed; these aren’t just ex-convicts either. A former Deputy Sheriff posted this on his Facebook profile:
“When dealing with the cops…turn on a recording device…if you have a gun…be ready to use it… do not trust them… shoot first…”
Another user posted:
“A message to police officers: People don’t trust you. Why? Look at the news and the stories all over the internet about police beating, robbing, raping, and murdering people. Then look at how many of these officers are actually indicted and charged with a crime. By and large, people are afraid of police because they know that they can be assaulted, robbed, raped, and even murdered by a cop and the cop will face little to no consequences for their actions. That to me is the definition of terrorism. So if there are any good police officers out there, I implore you to do something about the bad ones. Because, as you know, in this country we do not negotiate with terrorists.”
While nobody should advocate killing cops, there is a difference between obeying the law… and fearing a criminal… Where the latter comes to mind, one should be prepared with a handy bottle of peperspray on one’s person.
If lethal force were neccessary to protect oneself, a jury of your peers will decide if there really was good reason to use it. You have a right to protect yourself; exercise it with caution, or you become the outlaw. Learn this fact, even if the police and other common criminals won’t themselves.
