Recently my wife & I rented 2 Sea-Doo watercraft to enjoy some time on the Colorado River near Laughlin, Nevada. I boated into a buoyed to beach the watercraft & stretch a bit when a man approached on the beach dressed in swim trunks and flip flops. He identified himself as a police officer (but refused to say from where) and that “boating into a swimming area” was a felony.
Of course it’s a real shocker when someone says that you just committed a felony, so I’m looking at him speechless. As I was trying to digest what just happened, he said to me “…and you can’t fight it either, you’re just guilty”. I asked him what country he was from because that system didn’t sound american, and he became hostile and asked if I’d like him to call the police right now and have me arrested. I don’t know all of the boating laws, and though his delivery was questionable I didn’t feel willing to get arrested & ruin a perfectly good day with my wife so I backed down.
But the point is his attitude–how police can ‘witness’ something and automatically you’re guilty. In the system we’re heading towards, this mentality can be very useful for the ruling elite. If you can’t get your enemies financially, just have them arrested and charged with something. Wouldn’t be hard too cook up a story to convict someone under that system, and the sadistic glee the police get from beating anyone they can would make it possible. And under that system once you’re in prison, you’re dead.
Makes me sick. Go Team Alex!
