Land of the Free?. Uncle Sam's Misguided Children - Police state madness - more and more children being arrested for trivial things - things we all got up to as

Uncle Sam's Misguided Children - Police state madness - more and more children being arrested for trivial things - things we all got up to as kids:

#1 At one public school down in Texas, a 12-year-old girl named Sarah Bustamantes was recently arrested for spraying herself with perfume.

#2 A 13-year-old student at a school in Albuquerque, New Mexico was recently arrested by police for burping in class.

#3 Another student down in Albuquerque was forced to strip down to his underwear while five adults watched because he had $200 in his pocket. The student was never formally charged with doing anything wrong.

#4 A security guard at one school in California broke the arm of a 16-year-old girl because she left some crumbs on the floor after cleaning up some cake that she had spilled.

#5 One teenage couple down in Houston poured milk on each other during a squabble while they were breaking up. Instead of being sent to see the principal, they were arrested and sent to court.

#6 In early 2010, a 12-year-old girl at a school in Forest Hills, New York was arrested by police and marched out of her school in handcuffs just because she doodled on her desk. "I love my friends Abby and Faith" was what she reportedly scribbled on her desk.

#7 A 6-year-old girl down in Florida was handcuffed and sent to a mental facility after throwing temper tantrums at her elementary school.

#8 One student down in Texas was reportedly arrested by police for throwing paper airplanes in class.

#9 A 17-year-old honor student in North Carolina named Ashley Smithwick accidentally took her father's lunch with her to school. It contained a small paring knife which he would use to slice up apples. So what happened to this standout student when the school discovered this? The school suspended her for the rest of the year and the police charged her with a misdemeanor.

#10 In Allentown, Pennsylvania a 14-year-old girl was tasered in the groin area by a school security officer even though she had put up her hands in the air to surrender.

#11 Down in Florida, an 11-year-old student was arrested, thrown in jail and charged with a third-degree felony for bringing a plastic butter knife to school.

#12 Back in 2009, an 8-year-old boy in Massachusetts was sent home from school and was forced to undergo a psychological evaluation because he drew a picture of Jesus on the cross.

the list goes on.....

Get ready for Muslims, a rich family who takes your money, a horrible history, more Muslims, and the most racist people in the world. (They don't very much like Americans, or any other nationality)

Thank you. I feel horrible because that was the earliest any vet would get her in. One said that they had a large opening that day, but I couldn't take it because I wasn't a regular.

"#3 Another student down in Albuquerque was forced to strip down to his underwear while five adults watched because he had $200 in his pocket. The student was never formally charged with doing anything wrong"

Are we sure he didn't get the money after the stripping?

well i fully agree that anyone who commits an actual crime deserves to be punished, but all these arrests made over ******** is the problem

its like its too hard for police to catch all the real bad guys so they just arrest anyone over anything to up the count of arrests made

its not like they have quotas or something

why would the police want to find ******** reasons to arrest people

more arrests = more people in jails using state resources = more taxes

last time i checked, policemen still pay taxes, and who wants that
#211 to #59 - anon

(05/18/2013) [-]
Police DO have quotas but police don't want to say anything because they want people to believe that they have no good reason to make these arrests when really funding for police is determined by which precinct makes the most arrests because the higher-ups give more funding to the precinct they think needs it more than others

tlr Police do this because they want better stuff where they work

not everything results in jail, some crimes just end up with either community service, essentially people working for free, thus saving money from having to pay people to do those tasks, or fines, which directly makes money
either way, not officially taxes but still saving or making money out of the people

police do have quotas they just cant admit it, hence why they hope things they attend to do escalate enough for them to make arrests, or they try to direct things towards escalating it, i have personally seen cops digging at people til someone gets angry enough to be arrested for violent behaviour

please tell us how all of the police of the entire country operate without actually known any of them. Police have one main duty, protect the general public at all costs. They die every day protecting us and all you can think to do is makeup or exaggerate events when they're just doing their job. i hear fox news is in need of little cock suckers like you.

police do not exist to protect people, they exist to enforce laws

hell ive seen plenty of times where people are harming each other and police dont bother to turn up,....

one case for example.....i see 3 guys pretty much dropkicking a 4th down the street,...police tell me they dont have anyone free to come assist......but an hour later i see 2 homeless guys sitting at a bus stop sharing a bottle of wine....2 police cars come screeching up and they get arrested

GO POLICE....love your ******* priorities

Actually, the Mayor of New York city stated recently that it was not the responsibility of the police force to protect the citizenry, but rather to enforce laws, and take action if necessary.

yeah
one has to question: if youre really free, then why does the government and media need to keep telling you

its not freedom, its the state trying to reprogram the people into thinking the **** they live in is 'freedom'
its not just usa, there are other countries who are 'free' its just because usa is more active in world conttrol it has to preach freedom harder than the others

Oh yeah for sure, that and the fact that they try selling off the "american dream" to oter people in different countries... i know lots of friends in Europe who think that the states is just like in the movies, wen clearly it isn't.

oh definitively, the way they try and sell freedom to the people while funding oppression right behind their backs is quite the thing....

Yeah other countries do it as well but the states has the ungodly ability to sell it off to the world

well its not an ability to sell it, its more
"we're america, we're ******* bigger than you, take our freedom or we'll shove it up your ass"

its made easier by ********* of propaganda, like the battlefield, call of duty, and medal of honor games series keeping to a neverending "america vs the world" theme, so many movies making usa out as the superhero that saves the day, as well as ******** spewed out a 'cool' for people across the world to imitate in their lifestyles

another angle of who's in charge

every time israel commits ANOTHER crime against humanity, and the UN soit around to TALK about doing something, USA steps in and Veto's all their plans
theyve veto'd about 40 times, pretty much giving israel the eternal green light on its genocide in palestine

yeah i read about that, people should stand up to the US a bit more, a good example of that was in Iraq when Bush asked France to help out and Chirac (the current president at the time) said : no, they've done noting wrong to us, and we aren't going to attack them for their resources.

Obviously made the Us furious that they didn't get it their way....

i get the feeling the US is like that teenage brat who get's everything and if he doesn't he pulls a tantrum....
