A good society does not really need police

Although I normally would applaud more police officers and more money to the justice system, it is hard to do this time around. The Swedish government has issued more billions to these causes, and I cannot help wondering why that money is really needed.

Let’s put aside, for a movement, the massive deficit, the depression we are in, the borrowing to cover this and other manic spending, and lets also ignore how the justice system really “works” (hardly at all). Instead let’s look what “criminals” that we are getting imprisoned.

Firstly, a lot of the systems resources go to catch hardened gangsters like grandmas downloading music, soccer-mums speeding on well kept high-ways, youngsters riding their bikes without helmets, and animal owners shooting wolfs. Secondly, a vast majority of the criminal-systems resources goes to hunting down people that have not harmed a single soul. For instance prostitutes and their customers. People having sex and exchanging money is a victimless “crime”, nevertheless, they are chased harder than any murderer. People doing drugs are another “crime” where there is no victim. Both these examples are not only unnecessary to allocate resources for, the very fact that this wrong focus exists is also something that creates even more problems, like more break-ins because of higher drug prices, or greater risks for hookers needed to hide together with the costumer. People getting caught because of the things mentioned, especially drugs, is what is making jails overcrowded. In other words, there is another waste of resources.

In affect, what the government does, is to create criminals through laws, then they need more police to cover those “crimes”, which in turn create even more criminals. All the time they are saying they are “going to save us”. The whole reasoning is absurd.

I actually like the police, maybe you didn’t think so, but I do. There are a lot of idiots within the police, of course, but most of them do their jobs. I know it sounds like defending the guards at Treblinka, but what I’m saying is that it’s the law that is stupid. And how much bureaucracy and political correctness aren’t messing with the brains of police officers everyday? And how many times do not laws change every year? Resources get diverted, proper equipment isn’t provided, politicians often use police as a scapegoat, and on top of all this they get to see body parts scattered, raped preteens, brain-matter all over floors and so on. All things considered, most within the police force do a very good job, and I’m hundred percent convinced that if we changed those things mentioned in this post, they would be doing an even greater job.

A society where the government is limited, where basic human rights is respected by authorities and a society where the law only punished those that have committed atrocities against another human, in such a society the police will stand for something pure and right. Today, however, the police are the prolonged arm of the fascists, the power elitists and a horrid justice system. Consequently, today, it means that more police will only do more harm than good. It would be much better using that money to lower taxes, pay of our collective debt or to hire a committee to look over our laws.

At the same time some minor riots are going on here and there in Sweden, fully justified for the most part since our enemies refuses to do anything about the real problems. Many of those youngsters are idiots, of course, but that does not change the fact that the issues they are upset over are real.

I hope more people, real people, not idiots, take to the street and demand that the real criminals, those not getting hunted and imprisoned i.e. the banksters, the politicians and the power elite, get thrown in jail. And I hope that when this happens - which I don’t think is that far off into the future - that the police join in with the people.
