Next weeks cover of the New Yorker. It equates the assassination of the two NYPD officers by an angry disgruntled disturbed individual with the systemic slaughter of citizens by their public servants. These are totally incommensurate, unless they are saying the police of the United States are angry disgruntled disturbed individuals. They are not. They are members of an organized police state using fear and terror to justify denial of our right to life and liberty, our right to be secure in our persons, papers and effects, our right to not suffer cruel and unusual punishment, like death by policemen.
