In my earlier post I spoke about a proposal to get the army to assist the police in dealing with gangs. This proposal was made by Richard Lewis, former policeman and current leader of the Family Party, and he typifies the attitude of those Statist policemen who always want more powers that they can use against the population.
Never forget this: the police do not enforce the will of the people, they enforce the will of the State. For example, more than 80% of the population was and is opposed to the anti-smacking law, but the State forced this law upon us. The police enforce this law, and thus they are an instrument that the State is using to force its will upon the people.
