Holding Up a Mirror to Militarized Police

Given that our increasingly militarized police have reportedly killed over 5,000 civilians since 9/11 — making them arguably a greater threat than foreign terrorists — this idea from the Ukraine may come into vogue here:

In a move that is picking up international attention, the people of Ukraine have begun bringing mirrors to their protests.

They say they’re doing it to force police to look at their own reflection, in a piercing psychological reminder of what they’ve turned into.

The idea came about after police were seen violently attacking hundreds of Ukrainians who are upset with their government.

In one shocking video, swarms of police can be seen kicking, stomping, and trampling a defenseless man.

This Ukrainian cop doesn’t seem to like what he sees.


I wonder if these guys have looked in the mirror lately:

scary cops

Cops have usually been heroes in our culture. But that’s because they have enforced laws put on the books by a government that represented us. If our government still represented us, police wouldn’t be increasingly hard to tell apart from the military, which is intended not to maintain order but to destroy the government’s enemies.

Like the division of powers laid out in the Constitution, we are going to miss Posse Comitatus after it has been washed away in the tide of Hopey Change.

    This reminds me of Mussolini’s northern Italian fascists imposing their will on southern Italians.

    Compare the old Ukrainian woman to the spoiled brat anarchists of Occupy Wall Street.

    There was a Gilligan’s Island episode titled: The Pigeon, where Gilligan used a mirror to scare off a giant spider. Who knew Gilligan was using psychological warfare to show a giant ugly spider what he was and scare him away?

    The police are now giant ugly spiders needing their own reflections to scare them away. There is a comparison to Dorian Gray building somewhere..

    We need more police like Andy and Barney, and fewer Union Thugs With Guns.

    “stream a video of them in action to their mother,

    seeing cop reality shows on TV, they’re quite proud of their actions beating up semi random people…
    Give your intended victim contradictory orders, then beat them up for violating one of them while trying to comply with the other before being beaten up for being too slow in complying.

    You may go. These are not the droids you’re looking for.

    That link you gave, for “over 5000 civilians” killed by police since 9/11, led to a ‘social justice and human rights’ Castro-friendly lefty “news” website…not to be believed at all. Come up with a non-lefty website if you want that number to be given some credence.

    Carol mcl; This has been reported on many right wing sites also, 111 percent and Prison Planet. Some of these police murders are on CCTV and show unarmed civilians being killed for just being deaf.
