"He that would make his own liberty secure, must guard even his enemy from oppression; for if he violates this duty, he establishes a precedent which will reach to himself."

If it was unclear in years past and the serious doubts about police motives were considered to be the fantasy of pessimistic conspiracy theorists, there is little debate today who it is that law enforcement serves, who they protect, and who they abuse. The good deeds performed by police are dramatically overshadowed by what has become their colossal dereliction of duty in allowing corporate and banking thieves to bury the world in a perpetual state of poverty.
Since the felling of the twin towers in New York, and the subsequent perpetual wars in the first decade of the 21st century that were meant to consolidate a singular global power, police have enjoyed a surge in worship by the traditional, corporate media, and have been backed by the moneyed powers with an unlimited budget. Hand-me-downs from the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq have morphed the America's policeman in to militaristic, gang-oriented cops- too weak to capture the large criminals threatening peace everywhere, and too stupid to realize their existence is meant only to preserve the status quo for the uber-criminals, who never suffer repercussions as they rape pillage and destroy lives and foreign countries with their paper money game.

If the riots in Ferguson have done anything, it has been to lay these facts bare- cops really have no use for the people- especially the people who are unhappy with their slavery and oppression. The cops' job as mercenary enforcers for the economic terrorists and the pittance they receive for their treachery is all that matters to them. Even though unjust economic policy has been the root of the world's destruction, the cop gang across the country has refused to see the correlation and instead adopted the ways of their totalitarian overlords.
Basically, the message to the people as America sinks deeper into Depression is, "Shut up and take it." Or, if not, a serious beat down will be directed your way with no possibility of repercussions for the enforcers who are free to use whatever violent tactics they choose. Los Angeles cop Sunil Dutta recently penned an outrageous article laying his perspective bare: "Even though it might sound harsh and impolitic, here is the bottom line: if you don’t want to get shot, tased, pepper-sprayed, struck with a baton or thrown to the ground, just do what I tell you. Don’t argue with me, don’t call me names, don’t tell me that I can’t stop you, don’t say I’m a racist pig, don’t threaten that you’ll sue me and take away my badge. Don’t scream at me that you pay my salary, and don’t even think of aggressively walking towards me. Most field stops are complete in minutes. How difficult is it to cooperate for that long? "
"What has restrained the beasts of prey who are called men? ... In ancient societies they were kept in line by brutal and blind force; after that, it was law. Law is the very same force, only disguised. "...There was a time when faith ruled, but in our day, the power which has replaced the liberal rulers is the power of money..."
-excerpt from the protocols of the Elders of Zion
A few minutes of your time is all they ask. A "few minutes" is out of the question for uber-thieves like Jon Corzine, though. As tough as they claim to be, no cop in the country can detain the powerful Corzine for anything. Uber-thieves operate with impunity, stealing tons while their minions whack the mindless rabble into submission and acceptance.

Therefore, within the corporate police state, the question about reformatory courses of action are worth pondering. Is it worthwhile to protest? Even if the protest is peaceful, there is a high probability of an ass-kicking. Is it worth it to march and whine about rights and shit when one side is clearly at war?
Leaders in the communities of Ferguson have pleaded with the looters and vandals to stop. Why? It's not like the strings of corporate fast food joints and worldwide franchises that make every American town look identical will bring prosperity to the people. Clearly, all the controllers want is a pacified slave class to serve them as they rape and pillage.
So-called peaceful protests are played out- a relic of the past. The authoritarians always infiltrate the protesters and start the violence which causes a bunch of people to get arrested or worse, their head busted. Over and over, these marches and protests prove to be a fool's game.
A natural progression is taking place and the next step is at hand. Law enforcement, if you haven't been watching, has been expecting this violent change for a long time. Consider the recent U.S. Army Techniques Publication 3-39.33: Civil Disturbances which explains that in an emergency, the bankers' pet cops can use lethal force to put down a protest.
Ultimately, it has been law enforcements dereliction of duty that has brought us to this terrible stage. Law enforcement has allowed financial terrorists to run amok. Today we are seeing the fruits of these crimes. Soon, people will demand to know what exactly everybody thinks is worth keeping in this permanent state of poverty created by fraudulent economics. Buildings? Infrastructure so people can work at their slave job? It sure seems today like it would be better to start anew (with the financial terrorists out of the way, of course). The disenfranchised will soon make the distinction that their "neighborhood" isn't theirs, probably never has been, and its destruction by vandalism will probably satisfy their frustration more than getting their head busted at a "peaceful" protest.
The large banks, the corporate media, and the police would like you to believe the "unruly rabble" are aberrations of society. According to them, the dispossessed are the blacks or Latinos or the homeless. However, the facts don't lie. Since the economy crashed in 2008, almost all people are one crisis away from financial ruin. Still, people are scared of theses rapid changes in sentiment and are easily led astray by the corporate sponsored traditional publications about who is at fault. The "divide and conquer" game has been used over and over to bully the masses into totalitarianism.
Unfortunately, it seems, too few are able to see the forest from the trees and are easily sidetracked by race or some other prejudice, thereby making their cowardly decision to side with the oppressor that much easier. Even still, as conditions worsen for everybody, there may come a time in the near future when transgressions become so egregious, resolve will supersede all predilections.
