and they like to play with them, and try to impress women, just like chimpanzees.
Cops also often intervene in “domestic violence,” with only one thought in mind: men are the sole perpetrators, women are victims, and cops are the “heroes”–even though statistics clearly show that women initiate violence more often than men, and often with another male accomplice to cover her tracks. Worse, men who find themselves caught in the cycle of domestic violence ( where more often than not women are the initiators of the violence) are at risk of being murdered by police, even though cops themselves bully women.
If a cop even tries to take a stand against violence, or the homicidal nature of police in America, he is likely to be labeled a coward by other police. Then, an official black-balling takes place, and a smear campaign behind the scenes. Police even think its o.k. to beat men in wheelchairs, even after those men are handcuffed. You can mosy over to Detective Shaved Longcock, and get an address of where you can write to the cop who beat the guy in the wheelchair, or tell him what a nut I am for saying that cops are stuck in the phallic stage.
But in the US Virgin Islands, an off-duty ATF agent murdered a man who was one half of a domestic dispute. The ATF “investigated” William G. Clark, and found him “not guilty,” without a trial, or civilian review. Most police misconduct is covered up before it ever goes to trial, and before the public ever gets to see the facts. We all know the biases, deceptions, and cover-ups that are the very heart of police investigations.
The Virgin Islands prosecutors came to a different, and more plausible, fair, and human decision: they decided that the ATF agent should face a trial, like any civilian in a similar situation would face.
But American cops are above the law–they are better than you apparently.
“The prosecution of Special Agent William G. Clark for the 2008 shooting death of Marcus Sukow has enraged many federal law enforcement officers, who say Clark was heroically coming to the defense of a battered woman.”
Notice the use of the word “hero.” Since when did murderers hiding behind badges and killing unarmed men in cold blood become heroic? In the old days, shooting an unarmed person was considered cowardly. As some have noted, “Unleashing a hail of hollow-points without those qualifying conditions is the mark of a coward.“
I suspect that there is something of an inferiority complex in the mind of every cop, and that leads them to become bullies in search of victims. As I have discussed earlier, they are also prone to latent homosexual idealization that makes them prone to desire physical contact with other men ( and female cops desire as much from women, but that is another subject) and Sigmund Freud might conclude that a male cops desire to “please the father” is at the root of the problem ( pun intended).
There is also a concept in biological science that states that there is a type of animal that, due to its inferior social status, or inferior physical size, seeks to mate with the mates of others,but on the sly, so that they don’t face consequences. I think cops are like that, despite the fact that many of them are religious. This entire event actually mirrors chimpanzee mating mature: females are promiscuous–slutty, in American terms, or generally just ‘different’ ,because everything turns them on, and some males are violent in order to gain sexual access to those females.[in case you want to study similarities between chimps, and police]
So, cops are very chimp-like and they use the overblown social control mechanism of “domestic violence” to attemp to insert themselves into the relationships that other males have with females, and establish themselves as idealistic “better mates” for those females. And, it appears, that police generally have been having mating success, mating with violence prone, or violence driven females, because the police power has grown in America in the last several decades, OUTSTRIPPING MANUFACTURING, OR OTHER FORMS OF ECONOMIC POWER.[ harassing citizens here, and harassing journalists here; are we facing a police state morality crisis?]
“According to a police affidavit, Clark was leaving his condo when he encountered Sukow and his girlfriend, Marguerite Duncan. They had been drinking and were having a “disagreement.” Duncan asked Clark for a ride to the guard gate and got in Clark’s sports utility vehicle,” and even though Ms. Duncan claims she never asked for or wanted help from that cop, he stayed around to act like a hero.
What we have, then, is a male, who uses a female who is using another male to gain some favor ( an initiator of much domestic violence is womens’ infidelity, or lies, or implied violence via other males). That secondary male, who has made himself available, and idealizing itself as a hero, complies. Never mind the sort of manipulation that was taking place: that female chose Marcus Sukow, a 260pound man, as an initial mate; never mind that she was asking a cop with a gun for ‘help’; and never mind how that cop complied so readily and so easily–such is the social structure of chimpanzees, and many other great apes.
But what really matters is this: do we as a society want to be governed by people who act like apes? Or by people who uphold ape-like behaviors? If so, we have become an ape-ocracy, not a democracy.
According to both investigations, Sukow struck the ATF agents car with a flashlight, which, in the American mind, justifies the use of deadly force. The cop had many choices he could have made:
1) he first could have-and likely should have–called actual local police ( since when is it the business of the ATF to intervene in domestic disputes? I am certain they sit back, and watch women get abused all the time, especially if intervention could jeopardize some case they are making against a dealer. Hell they sat back and watched as all of Latin America’s women were pimped out, sold, beaten, or otherwise abused when it was in the US interest to sell drugs–remeber Iran-Contra?)
2) he could drive away, and get the woman to safety–if in fact safety of that woman was the issue, and not the cuckoldry of that 260 pound man; or the desire that cops have to seek attention for heroic behavior, even if that means creating that “heroic” act.
3) the cop could have used non-lethal weapons–cops surround themselves with weapons of all kinds, as they perceive the world to be a threatening place ( you should see how slow the internet connection becomes when I punched that phrase in).
4) the cop could shoot the un-armed man dead. Cops love to play with their weapons–a sort of sublimated phallus, and murder for a cop is a sublimated act of sex.
Guess what the American cop did? The cop shot the unarmed man, instead of driving away, using a taser, or calling proper authorities, like any normal American citizen is asked–told– to do.
Both sides agree that the murder took place this way:
“Mr. Sukow stood there with his hands at his side when William Clarke [sic] discharged his firearm at him several times.” Five times, actually.
What would you have done? And how long and for what will you tolerate this behavior–this mindset that police have a right to not only insert themselves into situations where they may or may not be required, and to kill first? Are you waiting until American democracy has fully dissolved, or are you in some way to afraid to speak up, or too paid off by capitalistic complacency to notice?
But I know we share this in common: shooting unarmed people was always considered the act of cowards.
My idealism prefers to imagine another way of doing business, but first, we need to get the apes out of the picture. We need to stop fearing the apes, and when we catch those apes doing bad ape-like things, we need to follow the lead of the Virgin Islands, and put those apes behind bars. These American ape-minded police are ruining it for all of us.
In the meantime, if you encounter an ape, or are accosted by a cop, advice for your safety from them harming you is the same as it is for an encounter with a violent ape or a chimp: “The best way of keeping yourself alive after coming across a great ape is to stay calm, try not to scream and avoid running away,” and if that doesn’t work–and if you can get away with it–you can shoot them. They would probably shoot you, if actual chimpanzees could use guns.
But I don’t recommend that–there are enough chimp-like cops out there doing that already.
