Smaller Font Larger Font RSS 2.0



"Law Enforcement in the US, actively practice open piracy as everyday operational guidelines and protocol, yet a mostly gullible and thoroughly brain-dead public, remain compliant, conformed, and still support local police."  I do believe that a valid case could be made that between the blanket dispensing of countless psychotropic drugs, public education, big media, social networks, chemtrail spraying, RF Bombardment, and the poisoning of all the food and water -- to name a scant few -- that for the most part, people in this country have had Their collective brains cooked off, along with Their will to resist anything.



Law enforcement took more stuff from people than burglars did last year


Here's an interesting factoid about contemporary policing: In 2014, for the first time ever, law enforcement officers took more property from American citizens than burglars did. Martin Armstrong pointed this out at his blog, Armstrong Economics, last week.

Officers can take cash and property from people without convicting or even charging them with a crime — yes, really! — through the highly controversial practice known as civil asset forfeiture. Last year, according to the Institute for Justice, the Treasury and Justice departments deposited more than $5 billion into their respective asset forfeiture funds. That same year, the FBI reports that burglary losses topped out at $3.5 billion.

Armstrong claims that "the police are now taking more assets than the criminals," but this isn't exactly right: The FBI also tracks property losses from larceny and theft, in addition to plain ol' burglary. If you add up all the property stolen in 2014, from burglary, theft, motor vehicle theft and other means, you arrive at roughly $12.3 billion, according to the FBI. That's more than double the federal asset forfeiture haul.
