OathKeepers enforce unconstitutional laws every single day they are on duty. Tell me why we should believe they will not do so some day in the future?
Police & Politicians, and anyone granted the Public Trust must adhere to a higher standard.
Yes, they are only human, and we all make mistakes. But the sheer hypocrisy involved in a Law Officer enforcing laws and providing testimony on Citizens, resulting in the loss of Liberty while the same Officer engages in illegal activity of any manner is simply not acceptable.
If you choose to be a cop and you drive faster than the speed limit when not in pursuit or heading to a call, you may not issue a ticket to a Citizen for speeding. If you fail to use your turn signal and ever write such a citation, you are wrong.
If you choose to be a LEO and you have a penchant for prostitutes, you understand why enforcing anti-prostitution laws makes you a hypocrite of the highest order?
But these points of discussion are Sparklies in our world today, no?
We have bigger problems with LEO than hypocrisy.
Every single LEO has sworn an oath to preserve, protect & defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign & domestic. Until we have our LEO in basic compliance with that fundamental oath it is nothing but Sparklies to wail about a cop taxing local prostitutes & drug dealers.
Can you defeat this argument: Not one single LEO has managed to abide his oath of office.
The LEO who has ever initiated contact with a Citizen regarding a concealed weapon is in violation. Every LEO who has ever written a charge for carrying a firearm, whether the only charge involved or stacking the charges to ensure conviction, has violated his oath.
The LEO who has ever arrested a prostitute or John has violated his oath.
Every LEO who has ever enforced an anti-drug law is guilty of violating his oath.
I could go on, but I am comfortable that I have already indicted 95% of all LEO.
And the charge is not simply violating the oath of office. Violating that particular oath is to violate the Constitution, it is to infringe the innate and unalienable Rights of Man. It is the undermining of Constitutional governance, and that, my friends, is Treason.
In the polygonal battlespace some enemies of the republic are very easy to identify.
