The Supreme Court has ruled that cops can lie to us, that they have no duty to protect us, and that they enjoy immunities that effectively place them above the law.
Cops know they can routinely abuse people and get away with it. Therefore, they just look you in the eye, lie, smirk and sometimes cave your head in with a club. Worst case for the cop? After beating up a taxpayer, a civil judgment of, say, $5 million, may be assessed against the state government to be paid by the rest of the taxpayers. When a cop pulls this crap, he should lose his house, car, savings and pension and 25% of his income for the next 10 years. Plus, he should be charged with criminal assault and jailed for 3 to 5. Minimum. The people charged with enforcing the law can’t be deemed to be above the law.
