Nothing Wrong with Murder, Apparently

July 17, 2012

New story out today: authorities kill an innocent man in Florida after mistakenly arriving at the wrong house.

Actually, this isn’t really what troubles me. People make mistakes. And sometimes, those mistakes lead to tragedy. That’s just the way the world is. The real problem has to do with the government’s callous response to the situation.

Take, for instance, Lieutenant ‘asshat’ John Herrell, who didn’t seem to express the slightest regret. According to him, “it’s just a bizarre set of circumstances. The bottom line is, you point a gun at a deputy sheriff or police office, you’re going to get shot.”

Did everybody catch that? This is the guy with an innocent man’s blood on his hands. Where is the contrition? The sadness? The shame? The guilt? The regret?

If we had a free market in security, people would be flocking to some other security agency in droves. Virtually nobody would want to stand behind such an insensitive and immoral institution and it would go out of business almost immediately. That’s what the free market does; it weeds out those that provide poor services and replaces them with those that provide good ones. A government monopoly, however, is subject to no such market forces. In fact, it doesn’t even abide by its own universal laws. That’s how government crooks are able to commit atrocities with minimal repercussions. And that’s why the killers who murdered Andrew Scott in cold blood will unfortunately be immune from the rightful consequences.

Rest in peace, Andrew.

    The police force is a magnet for psychopaths / those killed as beaten
    while in police custody / never make the media / the relatives knowing
    that none will ever be brought to account / police protect police / thus
    the crimes simply continue / the killing the beatings the mental abuse.

    It be many psychopaths are holding the top positions thus protect all
    others of same sick state of mind /they are above the law as beyond
    the law / able to do as please / thus the brutality the killing continues
    no police are brought to account / rather they are given the freedom
    of the media to say as please / while victims as relatives left weeping.

    • Absolutely. That’s precisely the problem with government – since it’s a monopoly, there’s no other agency people can turn to. Thus, without anything holding it back, government continues to grow at everybody’s expense.
