North Korean Police: More Restrained than their U.S. Counterparts

On January 14, the PBS program Frontline aired a documentary entitled The Secret State of North Korea Among the scenes captured in that documentary are two encounters between women and police.

In the first confrontation, a woman running a private bus service is accosted by an officer who attempts to issue a citation. She is angrily and openly defiant of the uniformed bully. She actually shoves him several times and treats him to a well-earned outpouring of verbal abuse before turning back to her work. The second incident involved a woman who refused to accept a citation for wearing pants in defiance of a mandatory dress code.

If these incidents had occurred in theUnited States, the women would have been beaten, tasered, and -- quite possibly -- killed.

American police taught to treat any act of non-compliance as ?resisting arrest,? a supposed offense that justifies the use of pain compliance and lethal force, if it is necessary to subdue the victim. Any incidental contact with the sanctified person of a police officer is treated as criminal battery or even aggravated assault.

Interestingly, this doesn?t appear to be the case in Communist North Korea.

Let us take back the liberty wherewith Christ has made us free.
