Police Chiefs have given their departments powerful tools to make policing safer and easier, but the abuse of those weapons is taking place just as was expected.
Mace abuse seems harmless, but you would not want to be maced. Yet police and some security guards are generally allowed to use it.
Here we see an obvious case of mace abuse. A protester has been
wrestled down with her leg twisted out of proportion, and her
companions are being maced for attempting to protest the first
police abuse. They should have known officers who willingly abuse
in one way will abuse in another.
Had their well paying police careers been terminated after such obvious evidence of abuse, their fellow officers would have seriously restricted their use of leg holds and mace. But the trend continues the same. Police everywhere are free to commit brutality and get away with it.
Police officers trained in "pressure point control tactics" (PPCT) ought to be admonished to not injure suspects with the use of it. In the above picture of abuse, it would not be a surprise to find out the woman down on the ground with her leg twisted terribly, will have problems with that leg for the rest of her life. Law enforcement officers are not to be the judge, jury and executioner. They are to make arrests as safely as possible and deliver suspects to the justice system in the same health they found them.
Here we see officers macing people who are standing. They are not
menancing nor attacking the officers. The use of mace in this
photograph clearly indicates the mindset officers have throughout
the United States, that they are to be obeyed or else they will
use the power entrusted to them by the people to punish those
who do not submit to their will.
Those officers who are abusing their public trust are a disgrace
to the uniform they are wearing, and their bad fruit spiritually
will be reckoned with by the Lord of glory in Judgment. Meanwhile,
two options remain. Make officers accountable for the use of
the weapons entrusted to them or take their mace away. These kinds
of laws could be passed by the people were there a will to do it.
