At 68, I’ve lived to view and differentiate the vast change in America that has caused a chasm and paradigm shift in the way the police force is trained and taught. There exists a shift is the way police view the public. The slogan, “To Protect and Serve” has disappeared from the cars of most municipal police forces. Why, you might ask; because that is not longer their objective. I’ll start my remembered journey of police and their mindset in the middle 1950’s when I was about nine years old. I was taught by my parents to respect the authority of “Peace Officers.” In the 1950’s, things were different in America, there was a real sense of country and patriotism. One must understand that WWII had just been won less than a decade earlier and the Korean War was just ending. In my memory, the local police and Sheriffs were there to protect and serve and for the most part, they did. They did not act like para-military units out to suppress the citizens at all cost. I remember the Sheriff in the county where I lived being almost everybody’s friend. What happened in the last sixty years that caused such a paradigm shift in police thinking and training? Each year our civil rights are eroded, just a little at an almost unnoticeable pace as more restrictions are put on the ownership of a gun. People need to ask. Why? The answer can only be, “complete state and national control of every facet of the American Citizen.” It isn’t that the police are bad people, it is simply that they are being trained to shoot first and shoot to kill. If the alleged perpetrator is not dead after a couple of shots, they have been walking up and performing the KILL shot to the head. In fact America’s police forces are actors in a national attempt to force our nation into a police state. They are becoming nothing but a para-military force at war with the nation’s citizens. Although incidents like the standoff at the Bundy Ranch in Clark County Nevada have seemingly faded from media view, this incident has set a dangerous precedent for all constitutional-minded Americans. Many Americans believe that if militia members from many states hadn’t flocked to the Bundy Ranch during the BLM’s (Bureau of Land Management) Siege, that all of the Bundy family would have been massacred. As it was, the family was humiliated, their children tazed and beaten for defending their property from invasion and their livestock rustled and killed. This family is just a hard working family that committed no crime, except angering the federal government. Incidents like the Bundy Ranch and others involving local, state and federal agencies are on the rise. There is only the constitution to stop this country from becoming a Marxist totalitarian regime, where those that are insiders are included in the spoils and those that are outsiders are considered perpetrators. To subjugate a free people might not be quite so easy. First, all weapons must be confiscated, least the citizens shoot back when attacked, while defending their homes and property. The police will absolutely protect their own and the state has proven that they will absolutely not prosecute their own police for any crime, while they are on duty. An example is the shooting of Michael Rogers on Deep Branch Road, just a couple of miles from my house. The incident involved an alleged hit and run. What happened is the plastic frame of a license was cracked allegedly by Mr. Rogers and he drove home. A DSP officer, Matthew Morgan dispatched himself to the home of Mr. Rogers and gained entry past Roger’s 87 year-old mother and started a fight with Rogers in his bedroom while he was getting dressed. Rogers was not armed and offered no deadly force to the officer at all. After the fight was over and Rogers was standing next to his mother, Matthew Morgan drew his service weapon and discharged nine rounds, five striking Rogers, two rounds to the groin. Rogers was never charged with any crime other than fighting off a police officer that came into his home without a warrant. (assault) Rogers was tried for assault and it ended in a hung jury. The AG’s office intends to retry the case. Officer Mathew Morgan was never charged with attempted murder and after an investigation by the Attorney General’s office (LOL), DSP Officer Mathew Morgan was exonerated from any wrongdoing and promoted to Master Cpl. NOW THAT’S JUSTICE! A dangerous precedent is being set in Delaware and the nation. The new para-military police force believe they are heros and the citizens are starting to view them as the perpetrators. What’s the answer?
