As the Albuquerque Police Department continues to shoot people willy nilly, the people started to protest the ever increasing police brutality. And what better way to respond to a protest against abuse of force, that with abuse of force. Got to keep the public in fear. It’s like watching a self fulfilled prophecy, cause nothing says freedom like armored riot vehicles.
There was a time when it was illegal have the military police the people. It would seem they found a work-around by militarizing the police.
It’s social conditioning which works something like this:
So you want to attend a protest, do ya? How about now? Here’s military imagery to enforce the idea that YOU are the enemy. You will be the recipient of military action from your very own government if you insist on protesting. This tank is big. Bigger than any gun you have. Are you still sure you want to speak out, domestic terrorist? I mean… citizen?
What we can derive from their ever increasing shows of force is that the rats are feeling cornered, but they’re holding back on naked aggression because they know that most people are still duped enough to not see the dictatorship that hides behind the veil of democracy.
As any government becomes increasingly aggressive, oppressive and abusive toward the governed, the latter will resent, resist and rebel. The government reaction will be to respond with more oppressive and violent tactics to subjugate the governed, but that’s what will eventually wake the sleeping giant up. Beware!
