30 Signs That the USA is a Prison

 30 Signs That The United States Of America Is Being Turned Into A Giant Prison

#1 A new bill that is going through the U.S. Senate would allow the U.S. military to arrest American citizens and hold them indefinitely without trial.  This new law was recently discussed in an article posted on the website of the New American….
In what may be a tale too bizarre to be believed by millions of Americans, the U.S. Senate appears ready to pass a bill that will designate the entire earth, including the United States and its territories, one all-encompassing “battlefield” in the global “war on terror” and authorize the detention of Americans suspected of terrorist ties indefinitely and without trial or even charges being filed that would necessitate a trial.
U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham is a big supporter of the bill, and he says that it would “basically say in law for the first time that the homeland is part of the battlefield”.
According to the PPJ Gazette, the following are three things that this new law would do….
1)  Explicitly authorize the federal government to indefinitely imprison without charge or trial American citizens and others picked up inside and outside the United States;
(2)  Mandate military detention of some civilians who would otherwise be outside of military control, including civilians picked up within the United States itself; and
(3)  Transfer to the Department of Defense core prosecutorial, investigative, law enforcement, penal, and custodial authority and responsibility now held by the Department of Justice.
#2 U.S. Senator Joe Lieberman is asking Google to install a “terrorist button” on all Blogger.com blogs so that readers can easily flag “terrorist content” for authorities.

#3 Most Americans have no idea how sophisticated the “Big Brother” prison grid has become.  For example, in Washington D.C. the movements of every single car are tracked using automated license plate readers (ALPRs).  The following comes from a recent Washington Post article….
More than 250 cameras in the District and its suburbs scan license plates in real time, helping police pinpoint stolen cars and fleeing killers. But the program quietly has expanded beyond what anyone had imagined even a few years ago.
With virtually no public debate, police agencies have begun storing the information from the cameras, building databases that document the travels of millions of vehicles.
Nowhere is that more prevalent than in the District, which has more than one plate-reader per square mile, the highest concentration in the nation. Police in the Washington suburbs have dozens of them as well, and local agencies plan to add many more in coming months, creating a comprehensive dragnet that will include all the approaches into the District.
#4 In some American schools, RFID chips are now being used to monitor the attendance and movements of children while they are at school.  The following is how one article recently described a program that has just been instituted at a preschool in California….
Upon arriving in the morning, according to the Associated Press, each student at the CCC-George Miller preschool will don a jersey with a stitched in RFID chip. As the kids go about the business of learning, sensors in the school will record their movements, collecting attendance for both classes and meals. Officials from the school have claimed they’re only recording information they’re required to provide while receiving  federal funds for their Headstart program.
#5 Increasingly, incidents of misbehavior at many U.S. schools are being treated as very serious crimes.  For example, when a little girl kissed a little boy at one Florida elementary school recently, it was considered to be a “possible sex crime” and the police were called out.
#6 But what happened to one very young student in Stockton, California earlier this year was even worse….
Earlier this year, a Stockton student was handcuffed with zip ties on his hands and feet, forced to go to the hospital for a psychiatric evaluation and was charged with battery on a police officer. That student was 5 years old.
#7 In the United States today, police are trained to respond to even the smallest crimes with extreme physical force.  For example, one grandfather in Arizona was recently filmed laying unconscious in a pool of his own blood after police rammed his head into the flood inside a Wal-Mart on Black Friday night.  It was thought that he was shoplifting, but it turns out that he says that he was just trying to tuck a video game away so other crazed shoppers would not grab it out of his hands.

#8 Did you know that the government actually sets up fake cell phone towers that can intercept your cell phone calls?  The following is how a recent Wired articledescribed these “stingrays”….
You make a call on your cellphone thinking the only thing standing between you and the recipient of your call is your carrier’s cellphone tower. In fact, that tower your phone is connecting to just might be a boobytrap set up by law enforcement to ensnare your phone signals and maybe even the content of your calls.
So-called stingrays are one of the new high-tech tools that authorities are using to track and identify you. The devices, about the size of a suitcase, spoof a legitimate cellphone tower in order to trick nearby cellphones and other wireless communication devices into connecting to the tower, as they would to a real cellphone tower.
The government maintains that the stingrays don’t violate Fourth Amendment rights, since Americans don’t have a legitimate expectation of privacy for data sent from their mobile phones and other wireless devices to a cell tower.
#9 U.S. border agents are allowed by law to search any laptop being brought into the United States without even needing any reason to do so.

#10 In the United States of America, everyone is a “potential terrorist”.  According to FBI Director Robert Mueller, “homegrown terrorists” represent as big a threat to American national security as al-Qaeda does.

#11 Most Americans are not that concerned about the Patriot Act, but that might change if they understood that the federal government has a “secret interpretation” of what the Patriot Act really means.  U.S. Senator Ron Wyden says that the U.S. government interprets the Patriot Act much more “broadly” than the general public does….
“We’re getting to a gap between what the public thinks the law says and what the American government secretly thinks the law says.”
#12 The FBI is now admittedly recording Internet talk radio programs all over the United States.  The following comes from a recent article by Mark Weaver of WMAL.com….
If you call a radio talk show and get on the air, you might be recorded by the FBI.
The FBI has awarded a $524,927 contract to a Virginia company to record as much radio news and talk programming as it can find on the Internet.
The FBI says it is not playing big brother by policing the airwaves, but rather seeking access to what airs as potential evidence.
#13 The federal government has decided that what you and I share with one another on Facebook and on Twitter could be a threat to national security.  According to a recent Associated Press article, the Department of Homeland Security will soon be “gleaning information from sites such as Twitter and Facebook for law enforcement purposes”.

#14 What you say on your cell phone is never private.  The truth is that that the FBI can demand to see your cell phone data whenever it wants.  In addition, according to CNET News the FBI can remotely activate the microphone on your cell phone and listen to whatever you are saying….
The FBI appears to have begun using a novel form of electronic surveillance in criminal investigations: remotely activating a mobile phone’s microphone and using it to eavesdrop on nearby conversations.
The technique is called a “roving bug,” and was approved by top U.S. Department of Justice officials for use against members of a New York organized crime family who were wary of conventional surveillance techniques such as tailing a suspect or wiretapping him.
#15 In some areas of the country, law enforcement authorities are pulling data out of cell phones for no reason whatsoever.  According to the ACLU, state police in Michigan are now using “extraction devices” to download data from the cell phones of motorists that they pull over.  This is taking place even if the motorists that are pulled over are not accused of doing anything wrong.
The following is how a recent article on CNET News described the capabilities of these “extraction devices”….
The devices, sold by a company called Cellebrite, can download text messages, photos, video, and even GPS data from most brands of cell phones. The handheld machines have various interfaces to work with different models and can even bypass security passwords and access some information.
#16 The federal government has become so paranoid that they have been putting GPS tracking devices on the vehicles of thousands of people that have not even been charged with committing any crimes.  The following is a short excerpt from a recent Wired magazine article about this issue….
The 25-year-old resident of San Jose, California, says he found the first one about three weeks ago on his Volvo SUV while visiting his mother in Modesto, about 80 miles northeast of San Jose. After contacting Wired and allowing a photographer to snap pictures of the device, it was swapped out and replaced with a second tracking device. A witness also reported seeing a strange man looking beneath the vehicle of the young man’s girlfriend while her car was parked at work, suggesting that a tracking device may have been retrieved from her car.
Then things got really weird when police showed up during a Wired interview with the man.
The young man, who asked to be identified only as Greg, is one among an increasing number of U.S. citizens who are finding themselves tracked with the high-tech devices.
The Justice Department has said that law enforcement agents employ GPS as a crime-fighting tool with “great frequency,”and GPS retailers have told Wired that they’ve sold thousands of the devices to the feds.
#17 New high-tech street lights that are being funded by the federal government and that are being installed all over the nation can also be used as surveillance cameras, can be used by the DHS to make “security announcements” and can even be used to record personal conversations.  The following is from a recent article by Paul Joseph Watson for Infowars.com….
Federally-funded high-tech street lights now being installed in American cities are not only set to aid the DHS in making “security announcements” and acting as talking surveillance cameras, they are also capable of “recording conversations,” bringing the potential privacy threat posed by ‘Intellistreets’ to a whole new level.
#18 If you choose to protest in the streets of America today, there is a good chance that you will be brutalized.  All over the United States law enforcement authorities have been spraying pepper spray directly into the faces of unarmed protesters in recent weeks.

#19 In many areas of the United States today, you will be arrested if you do not produce proper identification for the police.  In the old days, “your papers please” was a phrase that was used to use to mock the tyranny of Nazi Germany.  But now all of us are being required to be able to produce “our papers” for law enforcement authorities at any time.  For example, a 21-year-old college student named Samantha Zucker was recently arrested and put in a New York City jail for 36 hours just because she could not produce any identification for police.

#20 According to blogger Alexander Higgins, students in kindergarten and the 1st grade in the state of New Jersey are now required by law to participate “in monthly anti-terrorism drills”.  The following is an excerpt from a letter that he recently received from the school where his child attends….
Each month a school must conduct one fire drill and one security drill which may be a lockdown, bomb threat, evacuation, active shooter, or shelter-in place drill. All schools are now required by law to implement this procedure.
So who in the world ever decided that it would be a good idea for 1st grade students to endure “lockdown” and “active shooter” drills?

To get an idea of what these kinds of drills are like, just check out this video.

#21 With all of the other problems that we are having all over the nation, you would think that authorities would not be too concerned about little kids that are trying to sell cups of lemonade.  But sadly, over the past year police have been sent in to shut down lemonade stands run by children all over the United States.

#22 The federal government has decided to invest a significant amount of time, money and energy raiding organic farms.  The following example comes from Natural News….
It is the latest case of extreme government food tyranny, and one that is sure to have you reeling in anger and disgust. Health department officials recently conducted a raid of Quail Hollow Farm, an organic community supported agriculture (CSA) farm in southern Nevada, during its special “farm to fork” picnic dinner put on for guests — and the agent who arrived on the scene ordered that all the fresh, local produce and pasture-based meat that was intended for the meal be destroyed with bleach.
#23 It is an absolute disgrace that all of us (including grandmothers and young children) must either go through body scanners that reveal the intimate details of our naked bodies or endure “enhanced pat-downs” during which our genitals will be touched before we are allowed to get on an airplane.

It is also an absolute disgrace that the American people are putting up with this.

#24 Invasive TSA security techniques are not just for airports anymore.  Now, TSA “VIPR teams” are actively conducting random inspections at bus stations and on interstate highways all over the United States.  For example, the following comes from a local news report down in Tennessee….
You’re probably used to seeing TSA’s signature blue uniforms at the airport, but now agents are hitting the interstates to fight terrorism with Visible Intermodal Prevention and Response (VIPR).
“Where is a terrorist more apt to be found? Not these days on an airplane more likely on the interstate,” said Tennessee Department of Safety & Homeland Security Commissioner Bill Gibbons.
Tuesday Tennessee was first to deploy VIPR simultaneously at five weigh stations and two bus stations across the state.
TSA “VIPR teams” now conduct approximately 8,000 “unannounced security screenings” a year at subway stations, bus terminals, ports and highway rest stops.

#25 More than a million hotel television sets all over America are now broadcasting propaganda messages from the Department of Homeland Security promoting the “See Something, Say Something” campaign.  In essence, the federal government wants all of us to become “informants” and to start spying on one another constantly.  The following comes from an article posted by USA Today….
Starting today, the welcome screens on 1.2 million hotel television sets in Marriott, Hilton, Sheraton, Holiday Inn and other hotels in the USA will show a short public service announcement from DHS. The 15-second spot encourages viewers to be vigilant and call law enforcement if they witness something suspicious during their travels.
#26 Certain “types” of American citizens are being labeled as potential threats in official U.S. government documents.  An unclassified Department of Homeland Security report published a couple years ago entitled “Right-wing Extremism: Current Economic and Political Climate Fueling Resurgence in Radicalization and Recruitment” claims that a belief in Bible prophecy “could motivate extremist individuals and groups to stockpile food, ammunition and weapons.”  The report goes on to state that such people are potentially dangerous.

#27 Back on February 20, 2009, the State of Missouri issued a report entitled “MIAC Strategic Report: The Modern Militia Movement“.  That report warned that the following types of people may be potential terrorists….
*anti-abortion activists
*those that are against illegal immigration
*those that consider “the New World Order” to be a threat
*those that have a negative view of the United Nations

#28 As I have written about previously, a very disturbing document that Oath Keepers has obtained shows that the FBI is now instructing store owners to report many new forms of “suspicious activity” to them.  According to the document, “suspicious activity” now includes the following….
*paying with cash
*missing a hand or fingers
*”strange odors”
*making “extreme religious statements”
*”radical theology”
*purchasing weatherproofed ammunition or match containers
*purchasing meals ready to eat
*purchasing night vision devices, night flashlights or gas masks
Do any of those “signs of suspicious activity” apply to you?

#29 Soon you may get labeled as a “potential terrorist” if you are just feeling a little nervous.  A new “pre-crime” technology system that is currently being tested by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security will soon be in use all over the nation.  It is called “Future Attribute Screening Technology” (FAST), and it is very frightening.  The following description of this new program comes from an articlein the London Telegraph….
Using cameras and sensors the “pre-crime” system measures and tracks changes in a person’s body movements, the pitch of their voice and the rhythm of their speech.
It also monitors breathing patterns, eye movements, blink rate and alterations in body heat, which are used to assess an individual’s likelihood to commit a crime.
The Future Attribute Screening Technology (FAST) programme is already being tested on a group of government employees who volunteered to act as guinea pigs.
#30 The truth is that nobody puts more people into prison than America does.  The United States has the highest incarceration rate in the world and thelargest total prison population on the entire globe.

Child Molester Cop Gets No Prison Time

Of all the crimes out there, there is probably none more heinous than molesting children. The public demand harsh penalties against pedophile sexual predators. Yet in this case we see that the double standard of justice continues, when the perpetrator is a police officer. This man admitted in court to molesting his step daughter beginning when she was just 6 years old. He escaped charges of molesting her two sisters altogether as part of a plea agreement. Nonetheless, this conviction could have landed him in the slammer for 20 years, but instead, the judge suspended the sentence and placed the former police Captain on just 2 years of supervised probation. Absolutely disgusting.

Gov't Using Copyright to Shut Down Internet Free Speech?

Make no mistake about it folks, this is a smokescreen to get you to fall for more government control which will ultimately destroy everything from small businesses to your freedom of speech.

WASHINGTON — Federal authorities have shut down 150 websites accused of selling knock-off or pirated merchandise to unsuspecting online bargain hunters.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement Director John Morton and Assistant Attorney General Lanny A. Breuer announced the results of the ICE and FBI three-month investigation on “Cyber Monday,” the day that for many shoppers kicks off the online holiday shopping season.

The government seized the domain names for the sites that sold everything from fake replica NBA jerseys to replica Louis Vuitton handbags and imitation Ugg boots.

“This is straight crime,” Morton said. “This is people being duped into buying a counterfeit.”

The federal government has seized the domain names of 350 websites since first targeting online counterfeiters in June 2010. Each investigation, Morton said, has grown.

Visitors to the seized domains are now greeted with a message from federal authorities explaining that the site has been seized by the government and a warning that “willful copyright infringement is a federal crime.”

Technically speaking, I am risking being sued just to bring you that excerpt of the news which affects all of us. A few recent cases have held that an excerpt and proper attribution is not enough to be held liable in civil court, but the notice attached to Associated Press articles are chilling nonetheless. Keep in mind here that this is indeed public news we are talking about here, even if they did happen to write an article about it.

Copyright 2011 The Associated Press. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed.

Now, I would argue that I was not infringing on their rights by simply including an excerpt as part of my own creative piece, but would a judge see it the way I do? Especially a judge that happened to have a grudge against a dissident blog such as this? Somehow, I am not convinced, in this day and age, that the powers-that-be are interested in doing the right thing. Especially as the raids mount, and the noose of laws tighten around the neck of the internet. Even if I were to succeed in defending myself in such a lawsuit, it would probably still mean the end of this blog, and therefore a win for fascism no matter how we slice the pie, just as it stands right now. But there are legislative bills in the pipeline right now, that will leave you on the hook for a lawsuit, for the most mundane reference to something someone else claims to "own."

When I found out Fight for the Future needed help with their campaign against a new bill called PROTECT-IP, I had to take a little time away from Everything is a Remix Part 4 and produce the video above. PROTECT-IP is the latest piece of legislation aiming to chip away at your online rights in the name of protecting the entertainment industry's business model. It's legislation that won't work, will give us yet more lawsuits, and will make the net worse.

Whether you lean right and hate business regulation, lean left and hate censorship, or lean neither way but hate useless legislation, PROTECT-IP is a bill everyone should oppose. I encourage you to head over to Fight For the Future and contact congress.

Cop Who Killed Unarmed Man Being Sued in Unrelated Case

Johannes Mehserle, the Bay Area Rapid Transit officer who killed an unarmed man at a train platform, now faces a civil trial in another unrelated case where excessive use of force is alleged.

On January 1, 2009 police detained several men on the platform of the Fruitvale BART station for reasons that were never made clear. While laying face down on the platform and being held down by police, Oscar Grant III was shot in the back by Mehserle and died. The now former officer served one year in prison for the killing.

About six weeks before that incident, Mehserle and several other officers had a confrontation which has now led to this new civil trial. Here is an excerpt from the latest report:

Kenneth Carrethers, an Oakland resident, is suing BART, Mehserle and four other transit-police officers in U.S. District Court for using excessive force after they allegedly kicked, punched and hogtied him during an incident at the Oakland Coliseum BART station three years ago. Jury selection in the civil case is scheduled to begin Monday, and Mehserle is supposed to be in the courtroom for the entirety of the trial, said Carrethers’ attorney, Christopher Dolan. Mehserle is expected to testify during the trial.

On Nov. 15, 2008, Carrethers made a comment about how lazy BART police officers were within earshot of Mehserle, according to documents filed by Carrethers’ lawyers. Mehserle allegedly responded by grabbing Carrethers from behind without warning and leg-sweeping him to the ground, at which time the four other officers “piled on” while punching and kicking Carrethers.
Carrethers was later transported to a local hospital, where he was treated for injuries.

Police Dogs Subject to Double Standard Too

Just a few days ago I saw an article about a woman who watched her dog be shot dead by police, after they responded to her home for a 911 hangup call. The woman didn't know who could have placed the call, but it was reported that it may have actually been one of rambunctious mutts. The article also makes sure to mention that the dog which was shot and killed was part pit-bull, in order to highlight the "danger" the officer was facing no doubt.

It seems rather routine that the police will shoot first and ask questions later, even when there is no immediate danger or when they themselves created the dangerous situation. They tend to do this when it comes to people too, so really I shouldn't be so surprised I suppose, that the double standard also applies when it comes to police dogs vs. your loyal household pooch.  Their dogs can do no wrong, meanwhile if your dog barks they get shot dead in front of your family.

In this report, you can read about the police dog named "Storm" who's master let the dog off the leash while walking him. The dog then chased down and attacked an 8 year-old boy who was playing hide-and-seek with his cousin.

Now that incident certainly could have wound up worse than it did. The boy was not severely injured. But nonetheless, police defend the dog and his handler without question. If, let's say, the boy's parents shot and killed the K-9, would they have faced charges? Probably. In most states police dogs are considered to be a police officer, and it is a felony to kill or injure one. If they sick the dogs on you and you try to defend yourself, you're looking at serious prison time with the additional charges, even if your life was in danger.

As far as I'm concerned, that officer should be out of a job. At the very least, he should be stripped of his K-9 certification and Storm should be retired. The dog failed to follow commands, and the handler failed to control his dog. The incident should be treated as seriously as if the officer had an accidental misfire of a firearm that injured someone.

I am sick and tired of police getting away with hurting and killing innocents and not being held accountable.

This is video from a police car's dash-cam that shows Tennessee State Troopers shooting a North Carolina family's dog (around 3:03 in the video). It happened while the family was returning from their vacation in Nashville. Police say they stopped them because they "matched the description" in a robbery that had just occurred (they were actually incident). The officer who shot the dog (Eric Hall) hasn't been punished for the episode; he has only been reassigned to "administrative duties". The Tennessee Department of Safety issued an apology here: http://tennessee.gov/safety/newsreleases/2003/statement.html

Here is the account of what happened from the point-of-view of Eric Hall: "I yelled at the dog to 'get back' but it attempted to circle me to attack, so I felt that I had no other option but to protect myself."

Here is the account of what happened from the point-of-view of the family: "My dog then came out of the car and ran towards the officer with the shotgun and flashlight. We started yelling to please let us get him, don't shoot, he was only barking at the flashlight and jumping at the light. My son plays with him using a flashlight. This is when my dog was murdered."

This video shows a search warrant served by the Columbia Mo. police department. The cops bust in this guys house in the middle of the night and shoot his two dogs (one a pit bull that was caged in the kitchen and the other a Corgi) with children in the home. it turns out that rather than a big time drug dealer, this guy had a small pipe with some resin in it, a grinder, and what the cops here call "a small amount of marijuana" (meaning less than a few grams). We here in Comlumbia want everyone to know what kind of police department we have here, check out our "finest" in action.


Cop Humor

I was skimming through the PoliceOne.com page when I stumbled upon this gem. Now some of the things listed here are mundane, what one might expect to find on such a list, but other items really cut to the heart of who police really are and how they view the world. Frankly, it's not funny at all. Even the little introduction they give is quite disturbing. Have a look...

When do you really know that you are a police officer? Is it when you realize that you find humor in other people’s stupidity? Or is it when you know for certain that unspeakable evils will befall you if anyone says, “Boy, it sure is quiet tonight.” Is it when you’ve left more meals on the restaurant table than you’ve eaten, or when you come to the knowledge that discussing human dismemberment over a meal is a perfectly normal thing to do? Maybe it’s when you feel good when you hear someone say, “These handcuffs are too tight.” Here are 25 ways you can be pretty reliably sure that you’re really a cop.

Okay, taking humor out of other people's stupidity. I think maybe we all do that from time to time to some degree, but police officers carry themselves as if they know everything, and the rest of the world is inhabited by stupid cavemen. The reality is that while police may know a thing or two about the streets, they are generally low IQ brutes themselves.Which of course bear itself out when bragging about their sadism, taking pleasure in the torture of someone they have detained in handcuffs. So let's see what else gives a cop his jollies...

1.) You have the bladder capacity of five people combined.

Okay, some professions require long hours away from rest facilities. Drivers, guards, paramedics, landscapers for example. Doesn't necessarily make police unique here, but okay.

2.) You have restrained someone and it was not a sexual experience.

Yup, that's pretty much a big part of the job. Not exactly funny, but accurate. Bouncers, store detectives, people like that could say the same too.

3.) You believe that 50 percent of people are a waste of good air.

Now this one really cuts to how police see people. Basically they are telling us that they would just assume half the people they come across in a day would just drop dead. In fact, they would even like to help some people drop dead...

4.) Your idea of a good time is a “man with a gun” call.

They actually look forward to the prospect of killing someone. Now I suppose we need people like that to some extent. Firefighters for example, sit around hoping for a fire to break out. Different people have different aptitudes. But taking this item in combination with the rest of a police officer's general nature, we see why too many innocent people are being killed by police these days.

5.) You conduct a criminal record check on anyone who seems friendly towards you.

Yes, abusing your authority is so commonplace that it's funny. Conducting an unsanctioned investigation for personal use is both unethical and illegal. It sets the stage for blackmail and other exploitative behavior. Not to mention the obvious, being nice to a cop will get you investigated.

6.) You believe in the aerial spraying of Prozac and birth control pills.

Yes, make the population chemically catatonic and sterilized. Eugenics was popular under the Nazis too. Park everyone in front of the boob tube where they can drool their life away while destroying all hope for the future.

7.) You disbelieve 90 percent of what you hear and 75 percent of what you see.

Especially if it's in any mainstream media news source... or statements made by police.

8.) You have your weekends off planned for a year.

Life is tough all over pal.

9.) You believe the government should require a permit to reproduce.

Back to the eugenics again. Conform with the herd or we will take your children.

10.) You refer to your favorite restaurant by the intersection at which it’s located.

Meh, common to city dwellers on the go.

11.) You have ever wanted to hold a seminar entitled: “Suicide: Getting it right the first time.”

Promoting suicide. There seems to be a theme here. Maybe police really do want everyone to die.

12.) You ever had to put the phone on hold before you begin laughing uncontrollably.

Anyone who takes calls from the public will have such moments. Doesn't mean we want to kill them though.

13.) You think caffeine should be available in IV form.

Most working class people would agree.

14.) You know anyone who says, “I only had two beers” is going to blow at least a .15

Unless they are a cop, and they won't have to blow anything.

15.) You find out a lot about paranoia just by following people around.

Not actually paranoia when you're really watching us there Mister Officer.

16.) Anyone has ever said to you, “There are people killing other people out there and you are here messing with me.”

Driven By Drug War Incentives, Cops Target Pot Smokers, Brush Off Victims Of Violent Crime

17.) People flag you down on the street and ask you directions to strange places...and you know where it’s located.

Kinda like a cabbie.

18.) You can discuss where you are going to eat with your partner while standing over a dead body.

Well, to be fair, that does show a level of desensitizing that might be considered alarming by some standards, but I am sure guys who pump out septic tanks all day discuss lunch at work, coroners too, etc.

19.) You are the only person introduced at social gatherings by profession.

Don't know many Doctors do you officer?

20.) You walk into places and people think it’s high comedy to grab their buddy and shout, “They’ve come to get you, Bill.”

Don't piss him off Bill.

21.) You do not see daylight from November until May.

A lot of people work night shifts.

22.) People shout, “I didn’t do it!” when you walk into a room and think they’re being hugely funny and original.

Yeah, I could see how that would get old real quick actually.

23.) A week’s worth of laundry consists of five T-shirts, five pairs of socks, and five pairs of underwear.

Yup, uniformed service. Same goes for anyone who is anything from a security guard to a gas station attendant.

24.) You’ve ever referred to Tuesday as “my weekend.”

Again, police aren't the only people who work odd shifts, all the holidays, weekends. Retail workers never get weekends off.

25.) You’ve ever written off guns and ammunition as a business deduction.

Blackwater mercenaries do too.

So end all be all here, I really don't find this list in the least bit funny. Some of the entries are no-brainers, while others really expose the fascist, violent mindset of the average cop. Keep that in mind the next time you get stopped, or questioned by a cop. He would probably rather kill you than do anything to help.
