(NaturalNews) Apparently it is now illegal, at least in the eyes of the corrupt police state, to even engage a police officer in any way other than complete subservience and groveling. PrisonPlanet.com, recounting the story as it was told by ABC 7 in Fredericksburg, Virginia, explains that David Loveless, a father with no criminal record, was recently arrested and charged with two counts of assault on a law enforcement officer, and two counts of obstruction of justice, for allegedly pointing his finger at a police officer.
Police say Loveless pointed his finger at officers who had testified against his son in a robbery case, which prompted his being immediately handcuffed and arrested. But Loveless says he did not point his finger at police or make any sort of threatening hand gestures at all, which indicates that he is merely the latest victim of an out-of-control police state.
"I don't see how I was pointing my finger," Loveless is quoted as saying to ABC 7. "If anything, I was reaching into my pocket to get a pack of cigarettes. If that's what they saw, they have a vivid imagination."
But police state insanity comes in many forms. Back in 2008, for instance, police in Ozark, Alabama, tasered and arrested a man who was having a diabetic seizure. Reports indicate that 54-year-old James Bludsworth was driving when he began having the seizure, upon which he pulled over to the side of the road and passed out.
When police arrived on the scene, they began barking commands at Bludsworth's unconscious body. When he obviously did not respond, they proceeded to taser him. They then took him to jail and charged him with resisting arrest and driving drunk, an absolutely ludicrous demonstration of law enforcement incompetence (http://www.naturalnews.com/023323_Taser_diabetic_WHO.html).
Trickle-down tyranny in action
All this madness is really just the result of "trickle-down tyranny," as local governments adopt the tyrannical behaviors of the federal government. Rather than focus on the real enemy, which is those who fill positions at the highest level of central government, local law enforcement agencies are now treating everyday citizens as if they are criminals and terrorists (http://www.naturalnews.com/034221_trickle-down_tyranny_America.html).
Curbing this growing epidemic of tyranny requires both knowing your own rights, and standing up for the rights of others. When such abuses occur, public outrage must be so strong that those responsible for perpetrating them will not be able to escape justice for their crimes. Knowing the laws in your own state, as well as those provisioned in the U.S. Constitution, will also go a long way in protecting you personally should you ever become the victim of police abuse.
