Forum Post: Are we a nation of Laws anymore?

A woman in Ohio lies on a school application about where she resides in order to get her kids a decent education. The judge says we need to set an example and the woman must spend jail time. Plenty of law enforcement to go around, no shortage here! People all over the country protest non violently resulting in thousands of arrests and jail time, more than enough law enforcement to go around. Non violent protesters in CA lock arms, sit and get pepper sprayed in the face as if they were cockroaches, again no shortage of law enforcement and millions of dollars of equipment to enforce it. Try cheating on your taxes, plenty of law enforcement to catch and punish you. Try lighting up a joint just about anywhere and see what happens. America is an indiscriminate law enforcement machine in perpetual motion right?! That's what separates us from the banana republics we've always had such disdain for, right?!. But wait.... billions of dollars go missing in the contracting fraud monster called the “war on terror” but we seem to be fresh out of law enforcement, try again tomorrow, maybe we'll have some more in then. Billions more are stolen from pensioners, school teachers, fire fighters and other average Americans by the creeps at Wall Street selling them steaming buckets of crap they knew in advance was going to implode, but again we seem to be fresh out of law enforcement. Ain't it funny how it always seems to be in such short supply in some situations and not others. And our fearless leader in the White House , more in bed with Wall Street than ever, is telling the Attorney General that law enforcement, being in such meager supply, should be doled out carefully and selectively. “Hey Eric, go and bust those medical marijuana farmers for a while, that should keep you busy, I have a fruitcake to deliver to the banks.” So the question is, are we a nation of laws any more? If laws are only selectively enforced, why do we bother passing them at all. The whole democracy is fake and has devolved into a Feudal system of Lords and Peasants. Maybe its time to push “Occupy the Department of Justice” towards the top of the queue.

simply put, from the very beginning laws were for the peasants and the elites were above the laws. We have always been a form of feudalism since they started back in with taxes, there has never been a "devolution" because we were never anything other than a plutocratic feudalism playing smoke and mirrors with isms.

Occupythiswiki must get pushed to the top of the cue, because these issues are much more complicated than simple slogans or readable street signs.

Only once we have detailed platform positions, including a complete new set of laws to replace the old corrupt ones are we then in a position to occupy the department of justice meaningfully- without doing that work we are not going to have an impact.

It called social breakdown. If we have to lie or kill to eat or survive, most of us will. We are all to blame because we allowed our humanity and civilization to erode to this. With out justice and humanity laws mean nothing, because without justice and humanity you have the law of the jungle.

We don't have to live like this - like animals!

They have special department for those guys, but they cut their budget and laid them off.

Yep and when there does happen to be a rare conviction they go to the special "white collar" prison.
