Let’s make it easier to get away with murder

If you've ever dreamed of solving crimes, protecting the innocent and ensuring public safety? Ever wanted to protect and serve the public? Do you feel the need to help people and support them in their hour of need?

Well, if that’s the case then you could educate yourself and learn how to share information online. Become a hacker, send movies to your friends, download music and watch TV-show before anyone else sees them. All this serves the public, helps democracy along and makes freedom of speech a priority. To share files and information is the path to righteousness and a better society wherein the powers that be cannot do whatever they like.

If you however feel the urge to do the bidding of those with power, want to be able to beat up innocent citizens, and if you have the need to lock up people for victimless ‘crimes’, well then you can become a police officer.

The police in Sweden have a new career choice to offer any power-hungry individual, that of being a part of the taskforce consistent of nine people set to chase people sharing information online. Probably a high level of reverence internally for that job, don’t you think? The taskforce will probably consist of some new recruit not dying from cardiopathy caused by too many doughnuts and a couple of detectives that has pissed of higher ranking officers.

Regardless, as a police officer they are entrusted with enormous power . . . no other government official has the breadth of authority as does a police officer. This is important to remember whenever the police break down your door, they have the unspoken right to do whatever they like with you. Not according to the law of course, but rather by court cases and through what decrees given from up on high. Have you ever heard of a police officer getting convicted from a report filled from an ordinary citizen? I haven’t.

I actually like the police. Of all the things our government throws money at I believe our justice system and those set to withhold said system are the most important. I can even concede that we should have more police officers. I’ve also known several police officers throughout the years and they’ve all been nice, professional and mostly good people. There are rotten eggs within the police, of course, but few occupations have so great people working within.

With this said, there’s one big problem with the police; they do their job.

I know it sounds kind of contradictory, but it isn’t. The police are there to withhold the law, to catch criminals and make our streets safer. The problem with this is that we have politicians and arbitrary laws that decides who’s a criminal and who’s not.

Victimless crimes like drug-use, moonshine making and driving without a seat-belt have been decided to be illegal hence police arrest, manhandle and lock up ordinary harmless citizens perpetrating such ‘crimes’. They have to, it’s their job. Doing their jobs just like the guards at Treblinka or the officers watching the Gulag camps.

I know I know, I Godwin’ed myself, but it is nevertheless a valid point.

Sharing information and downloading some music isn’t a crime, not in a free society built upon fairness, democracy and liberty. But this new taskforce will hunt such people down, break into their homes, steal their property and send them to jail. Some of these so called criminals will probably go away for a longer time than any rapist.

Ever wondered why certain crimes are punished worse than others?

All normal citizens will say that a rapist, a murderer, a child molester and similar offenders should be locked away for life, get the death penalty or even be tortured in the same manner as their victims. If you ask the same citizens what they think of ‘criminals’ that has shared movies, embezzled a couple of thousands or hidden away money from the taxation agency, they would say those are minor crimes. But that’s not how the powers see it.

Why? Because such ‘crimes’ threatens the elitist agenda. If free information is available to all, then people can learn stuff on their own, expose government plans or spread news about scandals no-one is supposed to know about. If you own a gun you can protect yourself, not only from real criminals (that’s the government’s job...) but also from the actual authorities. So gun-laws are very important. And hiding away your income? Oh my, how horrible. That money belongs to the state. How else can they found their lavish parties and pay for private jets?

There’s a huge discrepancy between the common mans opinion of the law, the elitists point of view and the actual justice system.

In a society wherein the people got to decide 9 cops would never be assigned to hunt down peaceful citizens sharing movies and information. Instead those police officers would be out catching murderers, terrorists and rapists. To those in power it is more important to make it easier to get away with murder then to have people sharing free information.

It’s a matter of priority, and until you people out there gets why the elitist agenda decides to take 9 police officers away from chasing real criminals and have them search for information sharers, we will continue to be screwed by the powers that be. Sadly the police are a part of this, that’s their job…
