Before everyone launches into a post-9/11 Bush-bashing frenzy,

please consider that this type of Gestapo behavior has long been a
characteristic of Philadelphia cops. I grew up in Philly, and left
in digust over the corruption in government and the police.
Remember, this was the police force that firebombed 61 houses about
20 years ago.

Hmmm. Interesting. You are correct. Worth considering.

While I have great respect for police who take the "protect and
serve" oath seriously, all too many have inflated egos and are
hyper-sensitive to anything that they perceive as infringing on
their status and prerogatives.

There are god cops and bad cops. Problem is, most of the bad ones gravitate towards the higher positions in the force.

And, especially since the photographed and televised instances of
cops beating suspects, police are very sensitive to photographers
recording their activities.

The maxim, If you have nothing to hide you have nothing to fear, should be turned around and directed at them.

No lie can live forever. They must find it difficult, those who have taken authority as truth, rather than truth as authority.
