"Support Your Local Police"? There aren't any "Local" Police Anymore!

Will Grigg?s Liberty Minute

January 20, 2012

Los Angeles resident Shawn Nee, an amateur photographer, was accosted by sheriff?s deputies while taking photos of subway turnstiles. Because Nee was doing nothing illegal, and the deputy had no business harassing him, the shutterbug quite properly told the officer to mind his own business.

This prompted a smug extortion threat from the uniformed bully:

?You know, I?ll just submit your name to TLO (the Terrorism Liaison Officer program). Every time your driver?s license gets scanned, every time you take a plane, any time you go on any type of public transit system where they look at your identification, you?re going to be stopped. You will be detained. You?ll be searched. You will be on the FBI?s hit list.?

This is a perfect snapshot of the so-called ?local? police at work, using the threat of all-encompassing, Soviet-style harassment to browbeat an innocent man into surrendering his constitutionally protected rights.

In principle, and increasingly in practice, every police department and Sheriff?s Office in this country is part of a seamlessly integrated totalitarian homeland security apparatus. How can we support our local police when truly local police no longer exist?

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