what's on my mind doesn't really have anything to do with current events, but was watching COPS the other night because it happened to be on.....
the cop kept insisting that this girl had a piece of crack in her mouth that she swallowed, and she kept telling him it was only a breath mint. he never actually SAW what she had in her mouth, but he was busy pinning her to the cement with his knee in her back, telling her she was going to jail for tampering with evidence. guess he figured it was his word against hers, and that he would win....
the reason why this bugged me, aside from the obvious....is that each time an enforcement officer takes the boundaries of proof into his own hands like that, he sets a precedent. it's not written, but it's still there. don't know if it's the job that creates these type of people, or these type of people that gravitate to the jobs. only thing i know, is the more such actions occur, the more such action or enforcement will be condoned.
in other words.....behaving like an ass creates more asses.
and think we have plenty enough of those running around.
sort of related to this is an animal control issue a friend of mine had. guess it's not ok anymore to leave your dog in the car even with the windows rolled down. they tried to get her for abuse of her animal, and i've never heard of anything so absurd. if you leave a baby unattended in a vehicle, yes.....that is wrong and we have laws against that. but a dog? because they were telling her that if SHE was in the truck WITH the dog, it would have been ok. so guess what i'm saying here.....is
WHAT THE FUCKS WRONG WITH YOU PEOPLE?????? HAS THIS WORLD GONE MAD????
HUMANS ARE TREATED LIKE ANIMALS, AND ANIMALS ARE TREATED LIKE HUMANS AND DAMNED IF WE AREN'T ALL GOING TO HELL ANYWAY AT THIS RATE!
government needs to take a step back.....quit trying to micromanage so many people's lives. they need to get their facts straight and stick by a few principles. is it so much to ask for a little bit of logic from those in positions of authority? where did the brains go.....and if america is the camel, where is the last straw?
