"Americans shouldn't stand for an out-of-control police, but it is merely the symptom of an out-of-control government." #QotD


"Robert Peel, the British prime minister who established the Metropolitan Police Service, which is considered the template for the modern civilian law enforcement authority, said, 'The police are the public and the public are the police.' He meant that they should be an integral part of the community to which they belong, and he would have been horrified at the division that has arisen between his progeny in America and the people they are meant to serve. [Americans] shouldn't stand for an out-of-control police, but we should [all] realise that it is merely the symptom of an out-of-control government."
