NYPD Football Cops Found Not Guilty

Two female NYPD officers’ disciplined for tossing football with a young boy while on their post were found ‘Not Guilty’ of misconduct by the Trial Commissioner after a Department Trial. The decision was approved on December 17, 2012, by Police Commissioner Raymond W. Kelly. “This was yet another colossal waste of Department Resources” says Eric Sanders.

“The Department really needs to rethink its definition of community policing. I think the Department prefers its officers to be an occupying force rather than positively interacting with the community it serves” Sanders said.

  1. NYPD is not a positive community building force. They are an oppressive force that works for the ruling class in this country. There sole purpose is to oppress working class people in order to keep the ruling class in power. That is what stop and firsk is about, that is what the police department is about. If you want to work for your community then take off that uniform. If you believe as a police officer you are in that uniform to protect and serve then you have seriously been misinformed. It’s not a job, it’s not a career, it’s a state sponsored terrorist organization.

    1. Thank you for your comments. I agree with some parts of your comments about the “uses” of law enforcement. But, I do not think that the police officers themselves do not realize that at times they are being used as political pawns. Quite frankly, military and paramilitary (police) organizations have always been used by the ruling classes throughout history to protect their interests. With respect to this story, the police officers did the right thing as human beings irrespective of any political agenda.

      1. “When [one side] proclaims [one ruler] and [another side] proclaims another, whom do the [police] follow? The man who pays them.” — Littlefinger, “Game of Thrones”

        It may be the ruling classes that control the police, yet ironically, it is the working class who pays them. This is a major theme of Ayn Rand’s “Atlas Shrugged”, in which the universal truth of “you can’t get something from nothing” is paralleled in our current social reality. Wealth (energy in the form of goods, services, any commodities) is generated from the labor of the working class, in which the ruling class will take via force (guns, robbery) and/or sanction (taxes, laws). Either way, it is a form of extortion: if you don’t pay at gunpoint, you get shot; if you don’t pay a tax or fine, you go to jail. And the most ironic part is that not only do WE sanction this system by obeying it, but it is also WE who provide the energy to keep this system in play. Like the stereotypical Mafia, brutes (police, IRS) are sent to collect your hard earnings, and you pay them for the sole reason of not wanting to be harmed (I believe this is the exact definition of ‘extortion’). And like the Mafia, most of these funds will go on to keep the ruling family (class) in power, in the form of supporting the very brutes and their weapons to keep on extorting you. And since the greedy only get more greedy, they will push to take more and more of your hard-earned energy until you have nothing left (up to 40% of a middle-classman’s paycheck goes to taxes; that’s more than the Mafia would extort). The endgame of this system can only lead to one outcome: slavery.

        So is there a solution to break this cycle? A number of solutions exist, and the one portrayed in “Atlas Shrugged” is one of the least violent: the working class goes on strike. Without our energy and our sanction, there is nothing for the ruling class to take; they cannot extort what is not there. We stop providing commodities and labor, halt the extortion payments that are written on paper and labelled ‘taxes’, and as the book would say, “stop the motor of the world.”

        The requirement of such a method is that it can only be accomplished if EVERY [capable] member of the working class agrees to it. In order for the cycle to be stopped, the energy must be COMPLETELY drained; so long as even a small number continue to provide energy to such a system, the ruling class will continue to take as they please.
