More Scenes from our Emerging Police State

…chronicled here. Particularly notable is this SWAT officer punching out an unarmed and puzzled guy on a cellphone (in “self defense” sez he) and then fleeing the scene. The victim was required two brain surgeries and was on life support for 40 hours. The assailant cop had already figured prominently in a raid on the home of innocent people in which he threw a flash-bang at an unresisting woman that resulted in third and fourth degree burns and her winning a million dollar suit against the cops who assaulted her. He’s still employed but on “administrative leave”.


There’s a lot more than just this story at the link. As long as we let the state treat us like subjects and criminals instead of as free citizens, the state will continue to train its cops to act this way.

The best thing we can do is pray for them. Father, have mercy on the cops who have done these things or are tempted to do them, and in particular, pour out your grace and healing on their victims and grant them the grace to forgive those who have hurt them. Mother Mary, pray for them. We ask this through Christ our Lord.
