      Hey Ralph, man I have read a couple of your hubs now... Good stuff! I agree that the police have gotten way too out of hand. In my opinion and based upon my own observations, most cops can't even follow the simple traffic rules let alone much else.

      The police state is here and has been for a long time, it just seems like more people are waking up to it now, but not fast enough!

      Good article!

      Thanks for the comment. A couple of months ago there was a bad car accident a couple of blocks from where I live as I was driving home. I had my camera in the car and I pulled into a side street got out and walked over to the accident where a crowd of 10 people or so had gathered on the sidewalk across the street from where the car had wrapped itself around a tree. Several police cars, a fire truck and a couple of ambulances were there, and the EMTs were removing a badly injured passenger from the car. When I started taking pictures from about 50 feet away from the wrecked car a policeman came over to me and ordered me to stop taking pictures. I asked why, what law I was violating, and he replied "Because I said so." I said that's not good enough. I'm taking the pictures to submit to our local newspaper. I held out my hands and said "If you think I'm violating the law, arrest me and put the cuffs on me." He lost his temper and ordered me to leave the scene. I walked away for a few yards and then resumed taking pictures in no way interfering with the EMTs or police or firemen who were dealing with the accident. I'm still not sure why the policeman didn't want me to take pictures. Any thoughts?

      Police are bullies and if you check out the sites on mobbing and gangstalking, it says they are in on it and the firemen also and a lot of others. We get abused by cops and firemen. In California the cops are mean all over, San Diego, Camarillo, Lompoc, everywhere. They are very abusive.

      I'm not sure that Olberman is correct that Krauthamer is worse than NYPD Pig Patrick Pogan.
