The Police State is here. It’s not coming. It’s not on its way. And, I would argue, it’s not anything new.
In the past, before every phone came with a hi-def camcorder, it was much easier for psycho cops to conceal their actions. Today, not so much.
Even so, that doesn’t mean we’re any safer from police misconduct. Cops have become emboldened with new toys, thicker gear and militant combat training that brainwashes them into believing there’s a terrorist hiding in every bush and creek bed.
And, of course, everyone — from the little old lady sitting on her front porch to the pre-teen walking home from school — is guilty until proven innocent.
