Should we trust police officers? Are police officers allowed to lie to you? Yes the Supreme Court has ruled that police officers can lie to the American people. Police officers are trained at lying, twisting words and being manipulative. Police officers and other law enforcement agents are very skilled at getting information from people. So don’t try to “out smart” a police officer and don’t try being a “smooth talker” because you will lose! If you can keep your mouth shut, you just might come out ahead more than you expected.

How Can Anyone Respect the US Military? Part II

By Christopher R Rice


I wrote an article called "Why Respect the US military?" Because maybe I'd like a decent school to send my kids to instead of another military over run. Our children need a modern education, not another war plane.

Fourteen years in Afghanistan, how long does it take to beat a bunch of goat herders that don't have an air force, a navy or even a military budget?

You can only imagine the comments that I received. So in case I wasn't crystal clear about how I feel about the US military taking half of the US budget every year and yet they have not won a single war in over 50 years. Let me explain...

Male survivors of rape while serving in the military say they are often deemed "liars and troublemakers" when they report abuse.

The Pentagon estimated about 13,000 of the 1.2 million men serving in the military suffered sexual assault last year, NBC News reported. About 12,100 of the 203,000 women in uniform were sexually assaulted on active duty last year.

The Defense Department has said men "report at much lower rates than female survivors."

Okinawa: US Marines Corps' Training Lectures Denigrate Local Residents, Hide Military Crimes

Documents from the United States Marine Corps reveal that lectures supposed to improve Marines' understanding of Okinawa instead disparage local residents and politicians, downplay military crimes and mislead service members about the island's 27-year occupation by the U.S.

But I have a lot of reasons not to blindly respect anyone in the USA...

Pentagon: Hundreds of Military Kids Sexually Abused Annually

WASHINGTON -- Cpl. Aaron C. Masa became fast friends with a fellow Marine during field training in North Carolina. But behind his buddy's back, Masa was sexually abusing his friend's 3-year-old stepdaughter. He also took sexually explicit photos of the girl and the Marine's infant daughter.

A military judge convicted Masa last year of sexual abuse of a child and production of child pornography, according to court records and other documents detailing the case. Under the terms of a pretrial agreement, he pleaded guilty and received 30 years in prison.

In total, incidents involving sexual assault in which the children of service members are victims occur hundreds of times each year, data the Defense Department provided exclusively to The Associated Press show. The abuse is committed most often by male enlisted troops, according to the data, followed by family members.

Respect is something that can only be earned. Like trust. If I just met you and handed you my wallet and car keys and you said, "hey, what are you doing?" And I said, "no worries, I trust you." You'd think I was crazy. Respect can't be given away either. And since the US military has never done anything to earn my respect they don't get any respect.

On the weekends you can find me at the Marine base in San Diego. Me and my girlfriend drive down to Oceanside every weekend. She goes into a bar, finds a group of Marines, they usually roll ten deep. She gets friendly and then whispers to one of them to follow her out to her car. When I see her exit the bar with the Marine I quickly holler "what are you doing with my girl?" As I'm not interested in sucker punching a Marine, I wait for his eyes to meet mine and his shoulders to cock back. Then I plant my fist on his stupid face. And watch as the drunk Marine eats the parking lot pavement. Then my girlfriend goes back into the bar and repeats the process. Then she takes their pants and we head back to our hotel room. Where we wait to repeat the process the next day.

Remember, there's nothing illegal about beating up another man whose hitting on your girlfriend.

Why would you respect a bunch of drunk Marines? Whose motto is "A bastard baby in every port." There's nothing honorable about the US military. If you'd rather have safe modern schools and roads over another war plane then please share.

Part III Coming soon.
