I can't understand why criminal cops are allowed to be criminals! Why don't they have to follow the same laws as us? It makes no sense to me. It's probably just a very few cops that are bad, but the bad ones should be punished for criminal activity, that way we would respect cops, rather than think they are all bad. And who gave cops all this excess power? It's dangerous to give any human being power like that. Power corrupts.

"We" need cops to protect capitalists interests, private ownership...
"We" need fear, terror, hate, power and domination to rule the people...

Even a 'good' cop, a "good mother or father" is a threat to freedom and justice.

Why? because of the dynamics of power, orders and hierarchy. Not because the person is bad.

The question of authority, police and the state repression should be considered in all aspects (psychology, sociology and micro-sociology, history and race, economy and capitalism).


There is no way but the abolition of police and the whole state.

Stupid, foolish, too radical ?

Radical: going to the "root" of a problem (or at least trying to)...

Anarchy is Order
