This is a very interesting tale into human nature truly only god himself knows the heart of man which is evil and wicked. We wonder why God punishes us with hell for sins which seem insignificant to us . The truth is small things lead to bigger things Jesus Christ himself said if you can not be trusted with small things then how can we trust you with larger things. People who think they are good people in a normal sense when given the opportunity will it seems turn to evil with relish. Is this why God judges this way? Read on and decide for yourself.
Why Men Do Evil… When Wearing A Badge
“Honor was never taking the easy way when it was also the wrong one. Never telling a falsehood unless the truth was painful and unnecessary, or a lie was necessary to save others. Never manipulating the truth to serve only yourself. Protecting the weak and helpless; standing fast even when fear made you weak. Keeping your word.” ― Mercedes Lackey, Exile’s Honor
~ List of Police Brutality Cases
Sometimes in this crazy world we get lost in the noise and bustle of everyday life. We hear stories that cause us fear and concern. We know a friend-of-a-friend that has a second cousin that…
Stories are just a part of a person’s life. Each of us have a story. A snippet of our life that we hold onto and pass along. Many stories are cute and endearing, and then there are those at the other end of the spectrum.
These stories are of fear and pain.These are stories of abuse by police.These stories are becoming more frequent. Entire website networks have sprung up to alert readers and web searches of the abuse caused by police officers.Photographing the crimes by police, although protected by Supreme Courts in many states, still results in harassment by law enforcement.When the general public states their concern about surveillance cameras all over their town, the police may respond with “If you’re not doing anything wrong, what’s wrong with being recorded”. The hypocrisy sits in their mouths like venom when they are recorded abusing a pedestrian or a driver because, “They gave me attitude”.
It has been a long held tradition – from the time of Hammurabi of the Sumerians – the duty of the strong is to protect the weak.
“…that the strong may not oppress the weak, that justice may be dealt the orphan and the widow.” – source
As Rev. Clifford Stevens puts it:
“Wherever constitutional law has emerged, it was in the form of laws to protect weak and helpless members of society from those who would use their power, privilege or position to oppress and exploit.
Law itself can be described as protection for the weak and helpless, since the strong and prosperous have their own means of protection.”
Law enforcement is for professionals. You must be trained and licensed, and later swear an an oath protecting the Constitution. It involves long hours in the worst kind of weather. Behaving like a spoiled child because someone called you a name is not professional. And yet so many bad cops are allowed to get away with literal murder.
Why? What makes a person who swore an oath, to protect the general public, to taser unarmed women. Or beat senseless with night sticks?
To answer that question we need to go back to 1971, to Stanford University for the Stanford Prison Experiment. The experiment was conducted at Stanford University from August 14 to August 20 of 1971 by a team of researchers led by psychology professor Philip Zimbardo, and was funded by the US Office of Naval Research as an investigation into the causes of conflict between military guards and prisoners.
In the experiment, the guards and prisoners were chosen by a coin toss. And then began a two week experiment that was doomed even before it started and ended six days later. As the head researcher, Philip Zombardo stated:
Guard aggression … was emitted simply as a ‘natural’ consequence of being in the uniform of a ‘guard’ and asserting the power inherent in that role.
Furthermore, because the Guards could not help themselves, they could not be blamed for their actions.
Stop reading now if you are troubled by senseless violence. The following areexcerpts of the Experiment:
The guards were given no specific training on how to be guards. Instead they were free, within limits, to do whatever they thought was necessary to maintain law and order in the prison and to command the respect of the prisoners.
The guards made up their own set of rules, which they then carried into effect under the supervision of Warden David Jaffe, an undergraduate from Stanford University.
They were warned, however, of the potential seriousness of their mission and of the possible dangers in the situation they were about to enter, as, of course, are real guards who voluntarily take such a dangerous job.
As with real prisoners, our prisoners expected some harassment, to have their privacy and some of their other civil rights violated while they were in prison, and to get a minimally adequate diet — all part of their informed consent agreement when they volunteered.
This is what one of our guards looked like. All guards were dressed in identical uniforms of khaki, and they carried a whistle around their neck and a billy club borrowed from the police. Guards also wore special sun-glasses, an idea I borrowed from the movie “Cool Hand Luke.”
Mirror sunglasses prevented anyone from seeing their eyes or reading their emotions, and thus helped to further promote their anonymity. We were, of course, studying not only the prisoners but also the guards, who found themselves in a new power-laden role. more
