Police Interaction Book

Preface – The King’s Men

The following words are an attempt to catalog my experiences with police, and frame them in such a way that makes it as clear as possible what my perspective was. From the very first time that a police officer pointed his sidearm at me to the very last, I’ve continuously known that the actions of both myself and the police officers I met would be difficult for many people to understand. I have known that I’ve never appeared really normal or average when others view my actions, but I have always felt that this was due to a fundamental misunderstanding of my premise.

However, this book is not truly about me. While I myself must frame the stories, since I (and my corroborating cameras) were actually there, the stories herein are about the individual police officers; the specific humans that occupy the uniforms of law enforcement; the minds within the machine. Perhaps I have my own biases, partially due to my own ego and drive to succeed, but I will include no added lies or falsifications to tell the story better for my perspective; I will only include the full picture of truth that I can, because the boring old truth still ends up being a sum of unbelievable experiences with a plethora of colorful people. I have shocked myself in what I’ve seen with my own eyes, and I hope that you might be able to withdraw the same knowledge that I have from my experiences.

While this book will be universally declared by angry critics to be completely anti-police, let me make it clear that this is not the case. Police are a necessary part of a peaceful society. Absolutely necessary. Not everyone in a society, certainly not a majority, are likely to be professionals at conflict resolution, confrontation de-escalation, and defense of the peaceful population at large; I think that every reader, and myself, will agree that this is ideally the ultimate role of police in society.

This is not how police actually are.

Police are trained not to resolve conflicts, but to investigate and cage possible offenders of an arbitrary edict sent down from the metaphorical king in Washington, DC or Lansing, Michigan or your local city hall. The king (the government: the state, and their courts) has offices nationwide, and indeed across the world. Though the exact nature of how that king comes to power is no longer a method as arbitrary as family lines or marriage, the collective edicts returned from the king(s) carry the threat of violent, life-threatening, physical force from the king’s men (police) if you dare defy such edict. It does not matter if you didn’t hurt anyone or if there is no complaining victim: the king’s men will put you in a cage if the king says so, end of story.

Police are not trained to deescalate confrontations, but to escalate them until they gain physical control. If a police officer wants to talk to you, and you are walking away from him (since you have the fundamental right to ignore any stranger on the street, regardless of their costume or certification from the king), since he thinks the king will grant him permission to do so, he will grab your arm to stop you. If you resist, he will either knock you to the ground with his body or his Taser. If you defend yourself from this clear aggression, the officer will murder you. If you submit to the torture, you will be chained, caged, and be told to remit a portion of your wealth to the king to leave said cage.

I once got pulled over for having a muddy license plate (the purpose of such plate being that the king may better identify and steal from his subjects), just a few minutes after being on a muddy dirt road. The only issue here is that the police want to be able to see the plate; its not like anyone was harmed in the making of this $60 traffic ticket. If I hadn’t paid that $60, the police would eventually send a SWAT team to put me in a cage, just because the police officer couldn’t read a piece of metal that I don’t even need on any practical or moral level; I only have it because the king demands his subjects have plates.

Police are trained not to defend the peaceful population at large, but to protect themselves at all costs, even if those costs are grossly immoral on their face. Not only do police officers often cause unnecessary physical harm to peaceful people in their efforts to enforce the king’s edicts, but they lie to protect each other in a dangerous Police vs Public mentality, all to put the king’s wrath upon some peaceful subject rather than themselves. Whom will the king believe: a peasant, or one of his own men? Even then, in the United States at least, the king has declared that his men aren’t even required to protect any specific subject from imminent harm happening in front of them, but to protect the community at large so that the king’s interests are not affected by unrest (Warren v. District of Columbia is an edict from the king that addresses this point).

By this point, you may be thinking that I am broadly generalizing police in an unfair way. This is at least partially correct. Each individual police officer is their own person; they each own themselves and control their own actions. This means that individual police officers are fully capable of ignoring the common trends described previously and being better custodians of the peace of their community than their peers. Many officers proactively attempt to be better than others, but they are a minority. Thanks to the nature of relying on a metaphorical king to rule society, the king’s men typically follow the training handed down to them, regardless of its ethicality or morality. I have met police officers that literally tell me, “I hate cops,” knowing full well the coercive, thug-like nature of the common police officer; this is the exception rather than the rule.

Different law enforcement agencies across the world have their own standard of what exactly is proper conduct for their officers. In many nations, the police are literally worse than the criminals on the streets, because the police are assured of having the king’s blessing in whatever corruption they choose. Another plethora of nations have police that are far more effective at maintaining a helpful relationship with the king’s subjects, to the point that the people look up to the police to one degree or another. Police in the United States fall into both of these two loose categories, usually varying wildly by geography and local politics. A sheriff’s deputy in rural Montana will almost always be a true community peacekeeper compared to the thugs that occupy NYPD costumes in New York City. Bigger populations are almost always an indicator of worse police, for a wide variety of economic and political reasons.

However, it CAN truly be said that all police are required to be immoral; it IS objectively true that all cops are bad. This may seem like an extremely overbroad statement that couldn’t possibly be justified, but the explanation is rather simple. Police are policy enforcers: its right there in the name. Alternatively, they are law enforcement officers; their job is to enforce ALL of the king’s edicts (laws), not protect anyone needing protection. While police can and do, of course, on occasion actually protect someone in dire need of protection, this is not in their job description. The institution of police is designed to enforce ALL the laws, ideally with the intention of making a safer community.

However, sometimes government makes laws for reasons that aren’t based in a concern for the public, but perhaps a concern for itself or whom it favors. There are bad laws in existence in every single jurisdiction that police patrol. Every single police jurisdiction in the world has laws against what natural plants you can choose to put in your body, as an easy example. Because you own yourself, and because you own your body, it is a violation of your self-ownership for the king to declare that you cannot do so. Putting a plant in your body is not inherently a violation of someone’s safety or freedom, and yet your safety and freedom is directly threatened by the king and the king’s men if you do so.

The inherent contradiction that all police encounter is that they are required to enforce these bad laws and put you in a cage if you do not comply. It doesn’t matter if it is manifestly evil to throw a peaceful plant smoker into a cage; the king requires his men to do so. Therefore, every police officer is constantly required to choose between doing their jobs properly or not enforce these unjust edicts from the king. If the police officer does not enforce an unjust law, they are not doing their jobs properly, and are therefore a bad cop. If the police officer enforces an unjust law, they are acting in a manifestly evil manner under the king’s direction, and are therefore a bad cop. There are NO good cops, because every single one is required to be in this dilemma.

Police, as you might imagine, nearly exclusively choose to enforce these unjust laws in manifestly evil manners. They have their own needs to fund theirs and their families’ best interests with income from the king, and they have little motivation to give up that financial security. To make matters worse, the training that police receive convinces them that their actions are perfectly moral; they are conditioned to accept that the unjust means justify the ineffective ends. It is a sad truth that all police are in this position where they must choose between financial security and being a moral peacekeeper; it is exponentially sadder that police choose to put themselves in that position by virtue of their voluntary choice of career.

At this point, you may be wondering precisely how I can show that all police are required to be immoral, yet simultaneously claim that we need police. The key difference here is that I advocate not for the monopolized enforcers of the king’s arbitrary edicts that we currently live with, but with peacekeepers skilled in conflict de-escalation, conflict resolution, and protection of those who ask for protection. Being forced to have “protection” from a thug class with the force of the entire king’s resources at their disposal is not freedom; any peaceful person being forced to subjugate themselves to something they do not ask for is tyranny. You as a liberated, peaceful person who just wants to live your life hassle-free have every right to protect yourself if you choose; you have no moral requirement to accept another’s protection. Just like a mafia demanding protection money from members of the community, the end result is a net loss for the peaceful community members. In the end, you are not paying for protection from the mafia, even if they actually provide it: you are paying to not get your ass kicked by the mafia.

People want police, or else they wouldn’t exist. It really is that simple, but a huge portion of peaceful people in the world believe that our current type of police is good enough. We can find a better way as a society; we can do without the king’s men and even the king himself. We need not settle for a thug enforcer class that operates under intimidation and coercion; we can have police that are not bound by edicts from a king. The king’s men are only out for the king, by definition, and the safety and liberty of we the people is secondary at best. The king’s men theoretically serve the citizenry by serving the king; why can’t the king’s men simply serve the citizenry directly, and simply cease to be men of the king?

Until we reach a critical mass of people realizing the coercive nature of their police, there are many things to be done. The massive quantity of personal paradigm shifts required to improve the status quo is a daunting task. What we can easily do, in our efforts to move to a more peaceful society, is educate both the police and citizenry of the concepts in the preceding paragraphs. This is my premise for this book. This book is designed to show not only efforts of myself to improve individual police officers directly in their respect for the liberties of the citizenry, but to more importantly show you how you can create the same positive changes for yourself and your community. Call this an autobiographical how-to guide on preserving your liberty in the face of growing unrest and tyranny in our world, starting with the boots on the ground that the king’s men are. Ideally, upon completing this book, you will have all the knowledge you need to make yourself exponentially harder to be victimized by the police, as well as learn distinctly effective methods for improving the police for the safety and liberty of the rest of your community.

If it pleases the crown, I invite you to read on.

A New Age of YouTube Liberty Activism

Good evening.

I greet you all warmly, and I hope that you all are well.

The world we live in is constantly changing. We all see changes, and we express ourselves regarding what changes we object to. This is an undervalued human right, and is protected in the United States by the First Amendment of our Constitution. There are many people who object to the directions that our planet’s societies take from time to time. There are people who protest the abortion of unborn fetuses. There are citizens who work to protect the Earth’s environment. There are millions who protest governments sending armies to fight each other. There are droves who want less restricted gun rights. There are those who are activists for religious freedom, and there are more and more beyond.

We are none of the above.

We, the new LibertyIsForEveryone.com, are human rights activists. We are civil rights protestors. We are the resistance’s online newspaper. We do everything we can to fight for liberty, guided by the Non-Aggression Principle, for literally everyone. Human rights have no borders, and WE ALL should be free. It is critical that WE ALL unite for EVERYONE’s freedom. Your liberty should be just as bountiful and unwavering as the starving child in Uganda; the ex-convict’s freedom the same as the CEO. Any given black male in America who drives a rusty Ford Pinto should be just as free as the racist white man who is chauffeured in his Bentley, and everything vice-versa.

The key to freedom is not equal opportunity, equal standard of living, or even equal treatment under law: the key to freedom is the idea that each and every human has equal authority over each other. That is to say, since everyone has equal authority over each other, no one has authority, and every human interaction must necessarily be voluntary.

This is a fight that has no winners, except for our entire species. I believe that we, as the innovative beings we are, have the ability to evolve beyond the need for petty rule by a distant government; I hope you believe we can too.

OK, since more than likely everyone who finds freedom to be disgusting has perished from the previous words or simply closed this page by now, we can really get down to business.

Our new website, LibertyIsForEveryone.com, is a homepage stuffed with the latest videos from liberty activists across the globe. We have temporarily selected 18 YouTube channels to be featured; you will likely recognize HonorYourOath, Kory Watkins, Adam Kokesh, Cop Block, and Photography is Not a Crime. There are other channels you might not be familiar with, such as Bunny Boots Inc, Jackson Cop Block, and Mike Blue Hair. We are in the process of selecting which final 30 channels will be featured on the homepage, and we are asking for the best YouTube liberty activists to join. The LibertyIsForEveryone network will engage more cross-traffic between YouTube channels; that is to say, we will all learn more and reach more of the sheeple faster when we work together, freely share content, and promote each other. If you are interested as a channel owner, please email Contact@LibertyIsForEveryone.com or visit our Contact Us page.
