    This is giving me great hope for the future...surely it's not just in the US, but a worldwide phenomena. The young people are coming and they are different than the "old world". Thanks for sharing this Dreamtimer!

    If I was in the room I'd tell Jimmy that I remember the police abuse of Occupy Wall Street including confiscating and then basically destroying their library of donated books. The police behaved terribly, I haven't forgotten.

    You're welcome, Elen.

    Here's another segment with Jimmy and Michael. At 9:45 they discuss the 2nd Amendment.

    This is the last segment, I believe. They discuss an encounter in New York between a bicycle deliverer and a cop.

    Michael has had quite the awakening to what he used to be, and how he served the system not the people. Often times watching his chagrin over who he used to be gives me little flashbacks to when I used to bow at the alter of the neocons like Cheney and Bolton, and think that war was the answer to all problems. Sometimes people change in dramatic fashion like that but not very often.

    Anyway, there's a saying going around the cop block community "Earning The Hate", it often comes up in a video title showing yet another example of police misconduct. I don't happen to go along with that sentiment because I will still always choose to judge cops, or anyone for that matter, on an individual basis. However, after watching this shit for 3-4 years now I think I can spot the early tell tale signs of an encounter with a bad cop pretty quickly now, and go from friendly and cooperative to asserting my rights and asking for reasonable suspicion.

    I think the state troopers are by far the worst, almost nothing but a stalk and fleece money making operation and nothing else. Road bandits, they piss both me and my wife off. Just the other day we were parked facing the road in a fast food parking lot waiting to follow a friend who would soon be driving by to lead us somewhere. A trooper drove by slowly, gave me the double take but continued on. Soon as I saw the double take the wheels started turning for how I might handle potential scenarios depending on how he might present himself.

    I could see how my positioning may look a wee bit suspicious, and were he to just approach and ask politely I would gladly tell him exactly what I'm doing, "I'm waiting for someone". Then again should he approach accusingly with that typical cop condescension, I would more likely have come back with "do you have reasonable suspicion that I'm doing something illegal?" You show me respect I show you respect. You come at be with a big fat chip on your bully shoulder I start politely asking YOU questions, asserting my constitutional rights, and the video starts rolling. No game playing.

    That's the first time I heard the term gypsy cops.

    I've said it before, my ex-brother-in-law is a cop...I would trust the average drug dealer more than him. My brother's 2nd career was Law Enforcement. He started life as a individual that was headed to prison and/or death by cop...when he was 13 years old. A weird intervention changed his path, but he has never been emotionally stable.

Gypsy cops, just shuffle them around same as the pedophile priests...
    On the flip side of this equation, "Officer 401" is one of the cops I follow on YouTube. This is not only a good genuine cop, but a good genuine man as well, and this latest 12 minute video about PTSD really gives us some good insights on other side of things. I actually got a bit emotional watching this:
