I mean, if you could call the above an insidious sign. An officer arrested a nurse in Utah named Alex Wubbels for citing policy and refusing to draw blood from an unconscious patient. Here. Take a look.
I mean. Pretty disturbing, right? Not sure what else to say except that it seems police are expanding the bubble of people they are allowed to harass. Apologies from the mayor of Salt Lake City aren’t going to patch this one up. Other abusive cops will see this video and think to themselves “It’s okay to do something like this. My buddies in blue have my back.”
Keep in mind that Trump recently rescinded an Obama-era policy, allowing military-grade weapons to be used by the police. Everything seems to be shaping up nicely, if you are a monstrous, blood-sucking dictator.
Duterte, President of the Philippines, has his “war on drugs,” which have killed how many innocent people? Somewhere in the thousands. Trump has his wars on immigrants and “crime.”
Do you want to live in Duterte’s Philippines? I sure as hell don’t. But I’m not sure that Trump’s America is going to end up much better.
Seriously. Look at how authoritarian states get started. Simply because we haven’t lost all rights yet doesn’t mean we aren’t on that deadly trajectory.
Trump supporters need to be woken up. They might not care, self-interested, redneck SOBs that they are, but they will care when he starts targeting them.
Watch the above video again and see your rights as a private citizen go down the toilet.
