The percentage of domestic violence by police officers compared to the general public is a chart I would like to see. We are constantly told that guns should only be in the hands of those specially trained, I.E. law enforcement, but it seems to me that there are at least as many violent acts by percentage among law enforcement as the general populace.

We need to completly re-vamp how we police in the western world.

For me, after you get arrested for DUI after blowing a zero but cant stand on one leg because you are nervous, I have lost all respect for police in general.

We are told that there is a drug war and that it is being lost. It has all but been surrendered. Persons can smoke pot quite publicly on bar patios and other places where it can be smelled from the street and police never conduct a "raid".

Yet just because you blow BELOW 0.08 (the nationally mandated BAC on the states, imposed through highway funding) does not mean you are "free to go" or "innocent" of DWI. It's a financial shakedown racket for the cities/counties/courts/lawyers/insurance/politicians.

If the same standard was applied to drug possession and use, there might actually be a "war on drugs" being waged.

And watch out, persons in Utah want the BAC lowered to 0.03 and in Sweden it is 0.01. Neo-prohibition, here we come.

In Arizona they charge $17 a mile for a DUI tow. And they bust you at the very edge of the county, to rack up the highest bill possible. My tow cost me $600. And you don’t get that back if you are found not guilty. And the cops brother in law owns the towing company. With such a high, legislatively sanctioned, towing rate the corruption is basically inevitable.

So I am standing there in court, the corrupt cops, prosecutors and judge are there and everybody is looking at me like I am some sort of scumbag.

It is just surreal. Really scary stuff.

And the scariest part is, you cant move to another country to escape this. It is everywhere.

And another scary part is that we will never have self driving cars, which would stop this. Because the “DUI Industrial Complex” wont permit it, because there racket is so lucrative that they will prevent this from ever happening.

Of course. The danger is that the cops will be disarmed before we will.

Hmm.

Wait....
