The Largest Street Gang in America

This was sent to me by way of a message. It was written by an ex-cop shortly after he saw my blog. What follows is a very honest, insightful and terrifying message as he touches on the police perspective and the militarization of the police (which was largely excused as necessary by the ‘War on Drugs’).
“When I was a “police officer” back in the early ’70s the transformation was just starting to take place from a mentality of a public servant working for the citizens to “law enforcement”. The first I noticed of it was when the police departments started preferential hiring of ex-military people returning from Viet Nam. They started introducing military tactics into the department, including the first S.W.A.T. team. They quit referring to people on the street as citizens and started calling them “civilians”, or more commonly “assholes”.
“They looked for opportunities to use their new toys provided from “federal assistance” monies in the war on drugs. They changed the uniforms from the blue-suited cop with an 8-sided hat with a shield on front to a set of black or navy fatigues and a ball cap. They started shaving their heads and pumping iron. They gave up on the idea that they put themselves in the line of fire to protect and serve the public and took on a combat marine attitude of protect their own above all else. I’ve known them to murder cop-killers in the street, but have a could-care-less attitude when a civilian is killed.”
“I was lied to, lied about and set up when I tried to expose some crooked cops. Things since 1975 have not gotten better. The thugs in uniform now consider themselves to be government agents of a totalitarian regime with limitless authority to enforce the will of the government on all civilian assholes. There are obviously exceptions to that rule, but those would never try to stand in the way of the thugs.”
“Sorry, but talk show hosts I have heard that say we don’t have to worry about tyranny in this “nation” because our troops would never turn their guns on “Americans”. They are wrong. They have never read history. They don’t realize the training and brainwashing that takes place in the military now and in the para-military police forces – especially the federales. Just wait until big-O gets his Civilian National Security Force in place and all the local wanna-be LEOs join in with them.”
“Buy ammo and remember to aim for the head or neck.”
Broward County officials are drawing up plans for how to handle a massive outbreak of swine flu this fall.
The county and area cities would set up centers where large quantities of drugs and medical supplies, including a vaccine for the H1N1 flu virus, would be distributed.
The points of distribution would be opened if health officials declare a public health emergency and decide to tap the nation’s strategic stockpile of medicine. The Centers for Disease Control has large quantities of medicine to protect the public if there is a terrorist attack, major flu outbreak or disaster severe enough to cause local supplies to run out.
The county expects to have sites ready for potential use by October. The distribution centers would be similar to those set up in the aftermath of Hurricane Wilma in 2005 to distribute water, ice and other supplies to residents.
County commissioners are expected to discuss the flu plans at their meeting Tuesday.
Who was Mary Jo Kopechne, forever linked to Ted Kennedy because of Chappaquiddick? Read her biography below and read about the incident itself. Then see the videos at the end of this post.
Mary Jo Kopechne was born on July 26,1940 in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania. She was the only child of Joseph and Gwen Kopechne. She attended parochial schools in New Jersey where she grew up and graduated with a degree in business administration from Caldwell College for Women in 1962. She moved to Montgomery, Alabama, to teach for a year at the Mission of St. Jude as part of the Civil Rights Movement. And then in ‘63, she moved to Washington, D.C., to work as secretary to Florida Senator George Smathers. Mary Jo Kopechne joined New York Senator Robert F. Kennedy’s secretarial staff, following his election in 1964 where she worked as a secretary to one of RFK’s speechwriters.
By all accounts, Mary Jo Kopechne was a loyal and tireless worker for Robert Kennedy. During his campaign, she worked as one of the “Boiler Room Girls”, an affectionate name given to six young women who worked from a central, windowless location in Kennedy’s Washington campaign headquarters.
After Robert Kennedy was assassinated in June of 1968, Mary Jo was devastated and felt she could not return to work on Capitol Hill. She eventually went to work for Matt Reese Associates, a Washington, D.C., firm that helped establish campaign headquarters and field offices for politicians and was one of the first political consulting firms.
Mary Jo Kopechne lived in a Georgetown neighborhood with three other women. She was a devout Roman Catholic with a demure, serious personality, rarely drank much, and had no reputation for extramarital activities with men.
On July 18, 1969, Mary Jo Kopechne attended a party on Chappaquiddick Island, off the coast of Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts, held in honor of the Boiler Room Girls – her old friends and fellow Robert Kennedy campaign workers.
Reportedly, Mary Jo Kopechne left the party at 11:15 p.m. with Ted Kennedy, after he offered to drive her to catch the last ferry back to Edgartown, where she was staying. That ride cost Mary Jo Kopechne her life. After supposedly making a wrong turn, Kennedy drove his car off a bridge, freeing himself from the submerged car and leaving Mary Jo to die. Mary Jo Kopechne was 28 years old. Read more…
