Journaling Coronavirus (COVID19) Pandemic,
Reflection #71

May 29, 2020



What do you get, as a member of a social enforcement team or the team itself, if you decide that your million-strong combination of police agencies has 328,000,000 million citizens that used to be regular people, friends, family, or even just civilians hanging around, are the enemy. That you have to be afraid of them at every encounter? There is this new thing out, since 2019, called “Police Warrior Training,” and another selfish calculating bastard is making a fortune off of it at the expense of everyone in America.

Here’s the latest write-up on this clown and his ‘training,’ so far: “Warrior-style training takes a fear-based approach to policing that prioritizes officer safety over community safety by conditioning trainees to view all encounters as inherently dangerous. The most well-known examples are offered by retired Lt. Colonel Dave Grossman and his Grossman Academy.”

This kind of rotten training and preparation that leads to direct confrontation, invariably, and there’s the mess up in Minnesota to prove it. One million police officers in the U.S. cannot ‘fight’ 328 million of the newly designated ‘enemy.’ Even throwing in all of the militaries together the count only goes up to four million…again, do the math. With all these unemployed, fearful, hungry and very angry citizens just waiting for something, anything, to do, what is presented to them for ‘entertainment?’ Minneapolis. And more cities and states if escalation sets in. The National Guard has already been activated up in Minneapolis. Normally, that might be the end of it, and maybe, hopefully, that will end the looming nightmare now, but not necessarily, by any means. Escalation can turn into insurgency just as quickly and violently as this ignition of chaos, created by the loss of life of just one person, bloomed out of seeming nowhere overnight.

As I have been writing, the Cornovirus is not the worst killer to fear.

It is us.
