      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Another arrest leading to death

Recommended Posts

read

 

I think there is areal problem how police works, and what methods are used. These incidents are now a weekly norm. Police in these cases acts like thugs with badges. It starts with traffic and arrest quotas, because it establishes this type of culture. It looks to me police is becoming an extortion tool for cities and counties to extort cash out of ordinary folks. In the meantime these incidents will be on the rise.

has it "become" the norm, or is rather more now that the norm is suffering greater circumspection? :)

Probably one place where libtards and conservatards agree. Police need to be demilitarized. Take away all their tactical looking shit. Black beanies, parachute cord rifle slings, dark sunglasses, cammo. (Why do they need cammo in an urban or suburban setting anyhow?) Take away their armored vehicles. Let them keep revolvers. Maybe shotguns too. With wood stocks. Bicycles are a plus. Good way to meet the folks you serve.

FW, for one, we can agree on one topic. For starters taking away monetary aspect of tickets, fines and caesuras. Said assets could be spent only on charity and school project, not bonuses for cops.

Actually, they extort cash out of blacks, hispanics, and poor people. Middle class white people and rich folks get a free pass. Just look at Petreus getting probation for spilling national secrets to the chick he was banging. Different laws for different tiers of society. It's sickening.

Bullshit.

 

The proliferation of paramilitary federal SWAT teams inevitably brings abuses that have nothing to do with either drugs or terrorism. Many of the raids they conduct are against harmless, often innocent, Americans who typically are accused of non-violent civil or administrative violations.

. . . a SWAT team from the Food and Drug Administration raided the farm of Dan Allgyer of Lancaster, Pa. His crime was shipping unpasteurized milk across state lines to a cooperative of young women with children in Washington, D.C., called Grass Fed on the Hill. Raw milk can be sold in Pennsylvania, but it is illegal to transport it across state lines. The raid forced Allgyer to close down his business.

Being a middle class white who was some experience being thrown under the judicial bus (long story), I'd say it is the rich who typically get a free pass. That's not to say that being black in certain parts of country doesn't come without its larger challenges.

When you look at the statistics, there is a racial bias, but it doesn't mean overreach of police isn't effecting white lower and middle class as well. And this is the crux of the issue- we are diving this issue into categories, but it might effect everyone at some point. Like unjustifiable traffic fines. WTF is this crap, where 80% of the traffic fines are about speeding, while actual access speed causes only a small portion of actual motor vehicle collisions. Hence most of the traffic speeding citations are not about making roads safer, but it's about easy and indisputable in court revenue source for municipalities and counties. There are documented cases, where the cities or counties have over 20% of their revenue based upon traffic citations. That boils down to basic extortion by these entities, where cops are nothing but an "uncle Viny" with a badge. This establishes farther conduct of "acting with impunity", which basically leads at the end to crap like deaths upon arrest.

Tickets as a revenue source does make one wonder why municipalities need to make money that way. Do they not have enough revenue from other sources? Are they just greedy?

Federal tax cuts, trickle down effect, reduced municipal budgets. Tax cuts don't kill people, cops and lack of doctors kill people.

This is why we don't want our doctors to be owned and paid by bureaucrats. Down here.

When I moved to Bellingham in 200, there were two parking enforcement officers, now there are 6. So the system has to pay for itself. I just had to pay a ticket in Sumas. It has population of 1300. Please explain, why Sumas has to have it's own Police, Court and a Prosecutor office? There are 6 cops! WTF? So you create this bureaucracy, and then you have an "uncle Viny" with a badge try to catch Canadians.

There are also revenue cuts. But having 6 cops, own court and a prosecutor's office I see as plain fucking ridiculous.

Most likely they could sniff an asshole a mile away. You should mask your stench.

I am 100 100% sure you are talking from your own experience. You are one of those people cutting cheese in a crowded room, and asking who let the whiff out!

The difference is that the government bureaucrats have to follow rules, while insurance company bureaucrats don't.

indeed, a bureaucrat is a bureaucrat

 

capitalism is a fine thing, and founded upon the concept of choice: why not have a public option so i can choose if a want a public or a private bureaucrat to decide if i live or die? one i can deny my vote, the other my dollar.

Capitalism, by its nature, chooses the latter. But the choice as I see it is similar, which is, "Who's gonna fuck me up the ass? The government? or the corporation?"

 

While the corporation can make sure I starve or die lacking coverage for that one last medical test, the government has the guns and prisons.
