Unfortunately, one of the most common things the cops do, with the "in-justice" system's complicity, is beat someone up. Then whether the victim moves, covers his head, or even just takes the beating without doing a thing, the cops say the victim is RESISTING! --Redwood Curtain CopWatch

“Totalitarianism is patriotism institutionalized.”
“Patriotic” Americans are still berating me for “demeaning” my son’s “sacrifice.” A typical message goes something like this:
“Your son died to give you the right to spew your filth against this country. If it wasn’t for the military and people like your son, you wouldn’t have the freedom to protest.”
Oh, really? If I have the “freedom to protest” then why have I been arrested so many times and why did I have a four-month restraining order from protesting near the White House last year that would have landed my buns in jail for six-months if I violated it? Why are activists still being arrested for solely exercising what used to be our fundamental rights?
