Kill The Poor!

“The sun beams down on a brand new day
No more welfare tax to pay
Unsightly slums gone up in flashing light
Jobless millions whisked away
At last we have more room to play
All systems go to kill the poor tonight …”

– Kill the Poor, Dead Kennedys

The acquittal of two former Los Angeles police officers in the murder trial of homeless schizophrenic Kelly Thomas means that tonight I will be donning my best hunting jacket, polishing off my elephant gun and taking my black stallion, Mussolini out into the streets of London to ride down the poor, the weak and the unwashed. I hope the cries of my own victims will be as juicy as those of Thomas, who repeatedly apologized and then called for his father as he was bludgeoned to death. I am confident that the police will support my actions, as they have declared open and unremitting war upon anyone without money, in collaboration with the judicial and political institutions. There will be no consequences, save for perhaps that I will become notably a ‘former police officer’. Even when such actions are captured on CCTV and broadcast to millions of people worldwide, the court’s verdict will be infallibly: not guilty.

It’s good to see that our cousins in the United States, like us here in good old Blighty, share this bloodthirsty disgust and hatred for anyone who isn’t wealthy and powerful, and that this disdain is mirrored in the righteous actions of our police, who serve and protect the rich so diligently to make sure they are never troubled by bothersome oiks and poor folk.

This week, we Brits also had a shining example of a fair and equitable justice system in regards to the case of the ‘lawful killing’ of Mark Duggan, whose murder at the hands of police sparked nationwide riots in 2011. These ‘disturbances’ were subsequently described to us by the media and our dear Prime Minister (who had to come back early off his summer holidays, the poor bugger) as ‘sheer criminality’, stripping the insurrection of any political depth and marginalizing the very obvious expression of rage and indignation that the looting and violence manifest.

Similarly, in 2009, Ian Tomlinson committed the heinous offence of trying to cross through the G20 protest to take a shortcut home, where upon a noble police officer, sensing the terrible threat this portly, middle-aged man posed, barged into him from behind and knocked him to the ground. Tomlinson suffered a heart attack and died as a result of the incident. Though an inquest (probably infiltrated by communists) found the killing unlawful, Constable Harwood was later found not guilty of manslaughter, and still expects to receive a full pension.

And again, the tale of Jean Charles de Menezes, who was assassinated in 2005 in the frenzied paranoid atmosphere after the 7/7 bombings in London. He fled from officers because he didn’t have a ticket for the Metro, and because he was a brown-skinned man, which at that time was a crime punishable by summary execution.
And although it is now over a decade ago and who really remembers that far back, apart from perhaps grieving family members and bitter anarchists, let us not forget how Harry Stanley was shot dead by police in 1999 after they received reports of ‘a man with an Irish accent carrying a gun’ in Hackney. Infact, the ‘gun’ was a table leg wrapped in newspaper. The Verdict: not enough evidence to convict officers of unlawful killing.

But clearly, the most impressive scores in this grand game of murder must go to the police officers in Campinas, Brazil, who went on a killing spree in an apparent revenge attack for the death of an off-duty officer during a robbery. At least 12 people died in the overnight carnage.

Forgive me if my tone seems flippant. It is not my intention to make light of these tragedies, but to highlight how the system responds to them. On a global scale, the minions of the rich and powerful are in open warfare with everyday people like you and me. They care even less about justice and the welfare of others than I have tried to demonstrate in the facetious vitriol above. It is deluded to write these events off as the actions of a ‘few bad apples’, or to isolate them as singular, disconnected instances of where the system fails. This is how the system works. It is designed and enacted to ensure this – that the police and powers that be can act with impunity, and the relatives of victims of that systemic violence are left to pick up the pieces, with justice merely an illusion. We cannot point fingers at individuals when everyone involved in that system is an accomplice in the murder of the innocent. ACAB is not an anachronism, it is a tacit condemnation.

So tonight, in my hunting jacket atop my glorious stallion, it will not be the poor I’ll be after, it’ll be those bastards in blue who pretend that their role is to ‘uphold the peace, and protect the innocent’. And I hope I will not be alone.

No justice, no peace – fuck the police.

    Well, it was either…

    *Prosecute the bankers for the toxic mortgage/LIBOR scams that impoverished the world, making homeless, hungry, beggars out of all of us.
    *Stop the Fed from fanning hyper-inflation (QE1, QE2, QE3, QE∞) that will result in food riots, mass starvation.
    *Stop the looting, privatization of the world’s social safety net, public space, the commons, imposed “austerity” due to the toxic mortgage/LIBOR/Social Security rip-off scams.
    *Punish the banking cartel’s multi-billion dollar drug-money laundering operations.
    *Investigate and punish the Bush-CIA-mafia S&L pillage.
    *Investigate why jobs and manufacturing are being out-sourced to China, how China came to own most US debt that financed the US war against…China, why China (the oligarchy) is buying up US assets at fire sale prices, even as the US is threatening war against China as it threatens the US economy (national security).
    *Investigate why the US government won’t move heaven and earth to stop the radiation spewing from Fukushima, poisoning the US, the northern hemisphere, and investigate the connections between the Fukushima, Stuxnet, HAARP and nuke created earthquakes.
    *Investigate who was really behind 9/11, the false-flag terrorist attack that touched off the serial, never-ending wars of pillage against the nation-states of the world, creating the pretext for the massive police state edifice now threatening the freedoms of everyone.

    OR…

    The US government…

    *Ends food stamps to the poor even though there are no jobs, no social safety net, which will result in the starvation of thousands of Americans.
    *Stands by while the unprosecuted banking and economic crisis destroys the ability of cities and towns to protect their own citizens, fund their police departments.
    *Confiscates the guns.
    *DHS buys billions bullets, while giving away “tanks” to US cities and towns.
    *Flys soon to be weaponized drones over everywhere.
    *Allows Israel foreign nation contractors to run US NSA spying out of Mormon (occult) Utah.
    *Pre-positions military hardware in preparation for the coming US melt-down and chaos (COG).
    *Destroys the social safety net, making being elderly, homeless, jobless, disabled veteran, and hungry a crime (useless eaters).
    *Buys thousands of “FEMA coffins” in anticipation of US mass starvation.

    Gyorgy, great article and it’s nice to know I’m not the only one appalled by what is going on in the UK.

    Most people think that just because the government courts didn’t convict government thugs that justice cannot be served. That’s entirely untrue. Vigilante justice is a possibility. I also think it’s only a matter of time before vigilantism takes hold.
    That being said we anarchists are going to have to start from the ground up and build new institutions that compete with the state. The first, arguably, is the internet. The second may very well be Bitcoin. What comes after communication and money? I don’t know, maybe it’s justice. Eventually the disparate anarchists of the world will find ways to create their own defense agency. Then things are going to get real interesting. Might be a few more years, though.

    All that is necessary for evil to triumph is for good people to do nothing. And if there are any good people they are certainly doing nothing.
    People like to speak about the founding fathers and such so tell me how would they describe the current couch potato, IQ challenged, drug addled, semi trailer sized population of this country now?
    It is all well and good to point out what is wrong but guess what it does fix a damn thing and as long the perpetrators get away with it, the same thing will continue. Do not ever expect he court to do anything but lock up the poor, that is all they will ever do.
    You want change? It is not coming from a vote or a march or a movement. It will come when you make it happen and that may very well be messy because we are dealing with folks who are used to getting their way. And they are used to being violent. Yes it will be messy, but how badly do you want to keep being a slave. Do you like swat raids over petty infractions or no infractions at all because they got the wrong house hundreds of times a year. I mean really they cant even use gps? There are no accidents, this is not a mistake. A mistake is something you fix but this keeps happening so no mistake.
    You want freedom? You want your rights back? Try deserving them.

    Yep. The so-called “elites” want us all to think that we need to be taxed on the very air we breathe, so that Al Gore can make his BILLIONS of $$ in a carbon tax, meanwhile, the Corporations of the world (who run the U.S. Government) continue spewing TONS of CO2 (carbon) into the atmosphere.

    The so-called “elites” would LOVE it, if we started a VIOLENT revolution. They know how to deal with violence. Hell, government = violence. They’d simply wait for the public to cry “DO SOMETHING”! when things got messy, and, then they’d step in, with their preplanned solution: Martial Law, FEMA Camps (“Re-Education” Centers), etc,, etc., etc.

    NOT A SINGLE SHOT NEED BE FIRED, in this, or any, ‘revolution’.
    We, the people, simply need to change the way we do things. (More to follow) Keep reading.

    (Individual) SOLUTIONS

    1) Trade your FRN’s for SILVER BULLION. Silver is currently the most affordable (undervalued) commodity available, and along with gold, has been used as REAL MONEY, for thousands of years. It also is used in many, many, many industrial applications.
    2) Buy USED, locally. Or online, if necessary, such as on Etsy.com – buy from Etsy.com Sellers who ship within the U.S. It keeps your $$ in either the local economy, or the U.S. economy.
    3) Buy MADE IN USA, when buying NEW items, if you want jobs to return to the US.
    (If Americans begin buying MADE IN USA ONLY, guess where manufacturing jobs will move to?)
    4) Buy ORGANIC food! Support your local Organic food store or Co-op! Whole,
    organically-grown foods are best. LOCALLY-sourced, is ideal. Support the true HEROES of organic food production (on the right side, of the following poster: http://www.cornucopia.org/wp-content/uploads/2012/08/prop37-poste r3.jpeg)
    5) Take a high-quality daily multi-vitamin (such as Carlson’s, NOW brand, Stop Aging Now (SAN), or Mercola.com)
    6) CUT BACK ON OIL AND GAS CONSUMPTION!
    7) Get out, and/or stay out, of DEBT!
    8) USE CASH (or personal checks) AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE. Avoid credit/debit cards.
    9) Bank at a local credit union! Why bank at a TBTF (“Too-Big-To-Fail”) Bank, such as those that received a CRONY BANKER BAILOUT (from the “Fed”) in late 2008, which Obama authorized with his signature?
    10) VOTE WITH YOUR DOLLARS! (What do you support, with your time, money, energy, and attention?)
    11) Contact your Representatives on critical issues: such as “END THE FED!” (I would ONLY contact them on this ONE issue. Otherwise, IGNORE the politicians. They don’t represent you, and haven’t for a LONG, LONG time).
    12) Re-read the 2nd Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. It isn’t about hunting! It’s about government tyranny, and protecting yourself from it.
    13) THINK for yourself. TURN OFF the IDIOT-BOX (the TV), OR THROW IT AWAY!
    14) QUESTION all ‘authority’ (Big Business + Big Government, Big Religion, Big Media, Big Agribiz (Monsanto), Big Pharma, etc).
    15) Pray or meditate – reduce your stress! (Stress weakens the auto-immune system, opening up the body to free radical attack).
    16) Listen to soothing classical, jazz, ambient or other music you thoroughly enjoy!
    17) BOYCOTT – learn this concept well, and EMPLOY IT – against those 1) enslaving, or 2) poisoning you!
    18) Avoid the military. Don’t feed LEVIATHAN. Don’t be cannon-fodder for the N.W.O.
    19) Quit your TBTF (“Too-Big-To-Fail”) Bank/Corporate or Government job. Do something that may SAVE YOUR ASS, when this system collapses. Do you still want to be living in a city, when that happens? Just sayin’.

    There – you now have NINETEEN Solutions, that you can begin implementing in your own life, starting TODAY. ADD TO THIS LIST, and share it, with everyone you know!

    A little confused, the link re police beating blind man in Philly is nothing of the sort. A blind man was attacked by an unidentified black male, the attack was cough on a police surveillance video, no police were involved. I’m no fan of the police, but truth is truth.
