Have we ever sat down and thought how twisted and backwards this is? We pay people to take our money.
In any other industry in life it would be completely crazy to pay somebody to rob you. But when it comes to police this irrational behavior becomes rational.
I have never met anybody who enjoys getting a traffic ticket. Not one person. I doubt you have either. Every time we see a cop pull up behind us when we're driving we think, "Ah crap, alright play it cool. Go slow, drive straight and wait for him to turn or pass". But why?
Why do we pay to have people that we don't want? Why is it that none of us feel the need for police on roads, yet we have them? And why is it that we are okay paying taxes to support police who write us tickets that none of us want?
The whole thing is a farce. I know it, you know it, everyone knows it. Nobody likes seeing cops on the road. Nobody likes getting a traffic ticket. And nobody believes that getting a traffic ticket makes you a better driver or more safe. Every time you get a ticket you think, "What a bunch of BS". Traffic tickets are like a ticking time bomb that is waiting to eventually get you. You're always breaking the law and it's just a matter of time before the person you employ forces you to cough up even more money for a ticket.
We know the police are not on our side because every time we see somebody pulled over on the side of the road we don't think, "Good, I feel safer and justice has been served". Hell no, we think, "Awww man, that guy got caught, that sucks for them". We feel bad for our fellow men because we know they got screwed and that it could have been us.
I always find it funny how every time I see a big traffic jam somewhere on the roads there is always a cop car nearby. It's funny how traffic flows smooth and freely under normal conditions until a cop shows up. As soon as a cop shows up everybody slows down and makes the roads more dangerous. Cars get more congested, and you have to pay more attention to the cars around you.
I always find it funny how cops have no problem at all just stopping in the middle of the road and thinking that this is a safe idea -- a much safer idea than you happening to not fully stop at a stop sign or you happening to go 3 miles per hours too fast. But stopping in the middle of the road is perfectly safe. Pulling somebody over and expecting you to dodge them isn't a problem at all. That's money well spent.
Police don't make the roads safer. People don't speed less. People don't obey rules more. Police don't change anything. If we didn't have police people wouldn't speed at unsafe levels. Police don't make people better drivers. We don't have police 99.9% of the time you're on the road and everything works just fine. We don't need them and we don't need to pay them to steal from us.
There are certain rules that are supposed to be dangerous and not allowed on the roads. These rules are in place because supposedly if you do them it is risky and could cause an accident. But if you're a cop you can do it. For some magical reason it's not dangerous for cops to do these things. Make an illegal U-turn? Stop wherever you want? Run a red light? Meh, no problem if you're a cop. But if you're not a cop then you're dangerous. If you are a cop, it's perfectly safe.
Talking on your cell phone in the car? That's so dangerous! It is much safer to open a laptop up in the passenger seat and operate that while you drive. That's the safe thing to do. It's even more safe if you take money from everyone to trick out your car with cool technology so that you can use it on them to extract even more money.
I find it funny how bikes are free to do whatever they want on the road and nobody cares. Bikes can go through red lights. Bikes can skip stop signs. Bike can change lanes where cars can not. Bikes can choose to ride at night without lights. Bikes can do what they want because for some reason it's not dangerous when a bike does it. But if you were to even think about trying this in a motorized vehicle then you're magically much more dangerous and breaking the law. A bike does it, meh.
The whole police scam is a fraud and a bad joke. We pay cops to take our money. It's no different than going online, finding a professional asshole and then paying him $50 to come over to your house with a bill for another $100. Oh and don't forget that he will make you wait 30 minutes for the bill. What a scam it is.Filed under: Politics / Government, Police, Little men acting like big men, Schutzstaffel
