Whatcha Gonna Do?
From HuffingtonPost.com: Stephen Anderson, Ex NYPD Cop: We Planted Evidence, Framed Innocent People To Reach Quotas
There are three possible reactions to this story.
Reaction A: You are overcome with a feeling of shock and revulsion at the grotesque abuse of power in the New York Police Department.
Reaction B: You impatiently roll your eyes and wait for the rest of the world to catch up with a revelation which you have known of for years.
Or of course the much more rare, yet still viable, Reaction C: Sweat begins to form on your brow as your asshole tightens and goes cold. Only applicable if you are a lobbyist for the industrial prison complex, a narc detective, or the American Drug Czar.
You know, I never thought this day would really come. But I think we may have finally gotten past the hero worship of the police in the greater metropolitan area of New York that came with 9/11. For a long, long time in these parts it was the mark of a heretic to speak bad on the NYPD. After all, what kind of heartless cretin could stand against the men and women who so selflessly gave themselves for the recovery effort of that terrible day?
But thanks to the media storm surrounding the NYPD from their treatment of the Wall St. protestors, the official recognition of the police force's involvement in planting narcotics on innocent civillians to bolster arrest numbers may just be the straw that breaks this camel's back. And if my gut is right on this one, the degradation of public opinion in regards to those who swear to Protect and Serve has only just begun. Once all the pussy from that "Hero Dick Syndrome" starts to dry up, we'll get to see how mean these bastards can really be.
Don't worry though, girls. The firemen out there are still of pure morals. If you feel the need to get yourself some of that hero dick, just make sure he's wearing red, not blue. Or, better yet, in the loving words of those adorable femme fatales at Suicide Girls: Protestors are the new Rock Stars. Fuck one today.
