One for Woodsman: Rethinking War on Crime

Postby Sri Lanky » Thu Jun 16, 2011 5:29 pm

Seems fairly accurate. After reading this you might think that government is organized crime and that it uses outlaw biker gangs and mafias as scapegoats...to make themselves look good of course. Much in the same way organized religion was capable of doing in the past. My morality is better than your morality. A government which professes to be good or to do good but only in regards to their own egoistic self-interest are actually revealing their true face..a face which is evil.

Fantastic article, cheers Sri
I know the law. And I have spent my entire life in its flagrant disregard.

a protection racket under the veil of legitimacy is all government really is in the end.

This is not insightful or edgy. What he does do is address reality that is quered by media, tv, and movies. But if you read news and educate yourself, granted which most Americans do not do, then this is not new news.

Of course socioeconomic circumstances are not seen as relevant to many in the law enforcement community. There are still some cowboys out there. If any good came out of this it's that economic development is now the priority with regards to the working relationship between government and these communities. Self-government is on the back burner.

I've known an IP for about ten years. He recently moved high up in the gang while in prison. Last talked to him 'bout 6 months ago. This guy with no education whatsoever would cut into your bullshit in two seconds...I know,because he's done it to me. Fearless. I wouldn't compare their situation to Chechens...not even close. But the attitude from what I've read about Chechens is not far off. They can be defiant and arrogant but at the same time if you show independence and courage they will respect you regardless.

If you have trouble getting to the article query "The Ballad of Daniel Wolfe".

Out of all the people that I've asked the riddle,"What is beyond deception?",my IP aquaintance is the only one who replied,"Just deception".

Oh fuck. It occured to me that we shared the same woman for a couple of days one summer. So maybe we are on a bit more of an intimate level than say...aquaintance.

Did you make up that riddle? I got asked it once and answered ulterior motives. 30 minutes later into the conversation the guy offered me a job.

It was Natalie Portman and between the two of you you failed to achieved more than 20% impact on her (and most of that impact occurred at the unexpected appearance of a chigger in Woodsman's beard at an inopportune moment).
