Law Enforcement Today Tweeted the image above. It seems the boys in blue are feeling a bit unappreciated. Combative even. The sentiment is more than a little reminiscent of the 60’s, when police brutality against civil rights and anti-war protesters earned cops the nickname “pigs.” While I haven’t heard that epithet in years, it may make a comeback if Connecticut State Troopers enforce the Constitution State’s post-Newtown gun control pogrom. And not for nothing. Are we, the general public, supposed to be reassured by an image of five military-style cops with their faces obscured by weapons [banned from civilian use] pointed in our genera direction? The caption assumes its either the cops or a crackhead when we’re in trouble. What about self-reliance? Armed self-reliance? Is it any wonder that some of us don’t like cops, generally speaking?
