Police Union Commissar: If You Resist, You Should Expect to Die

“We’ve heard a lot in the last number of weeks about what police officers can’t do, and what police officers shouldn’t do,” groused Patrick Lynch, designated spokesliar for the Patrolmen’s Benevolent Association, [2] New York’s largest police union. “No one’s telling us what we are able to do, and what we should do, when we’re faced with a situation where the person being placed under arrest says, `I’m not going. I’m not being placed under arrest.’”

“What is it we should do?” continued Lynch, his voice colored by theatrical incredulity. “Walk away?”

If the would-be arrestee isn’t involved in an actual crime — that is, an act of aggression against another person — the only morally suitable answer is: Yes. The cop should shut up, go away, and refrain from molesting one of his betters. The experience might encourage him to find honest work.

“We don’t have that option,” Lynch insisted. “Nor would the public that called and complained about these crimes want us to. If they called, it’s important to them.”

In this fashion Lynch attempted to shift the blame for the killing of Eric Garner [3] on merchants in the Staten Island neighborhood where the harmless man was killed through an act of criminal homicide by NYPD officers enforcing a demented “zero tolerance” policy regarding the sale of untaxed cigarettes. Lynch, who has spent his entire adult life as a member of the coercive caste, tried to depict Garner — a micro-entrepreneur — as a menace to the public, and a threat to commerce. Lynch appears to believe that the spectacle of police killing a harmless and unarmed man is less damaging to the local economy than allowing that man to sell loose cigarettes to willing customers.

Lynch resurrected the unproven claim that plainclothes officers had seen Garner commit an act of unsanctioned petty commerce, and that he resisted their efforts to abduct him on behalf of the state’s tax-consuming class. He carefully avoided mention of the fact that Garner, according to eyewitnesses, had broken up a fight while the officers, ever vigilant for economic “crimes,” refused to intervene.

“There is an attitude on our streets today that it is acceptable to resist arrest,” lamented Lynch. “That attitude is a direct result of a lack of respect for law enforcement.”

While it is the moral duty of every decent person to cultivate disrespect for law enforcement [4], that attitude is not to blame (if that’s the appropriate word) for the growing resistance to officially sanctioned abduction. That inclination is a direct reaction to the impudence, arrogance, and aggressiveness of police officers, their palpable contempt for the public they supposedly serve, their sense of tribal solidarity with officers who commit crimes against innocent people, and the institutional immunity they enjoy.

“The charge of resisting arrest is a very serious and dangerous one,” insisted Lynch. “The charge exists to encourage those being arrested to comply with the lawful orders of police officers so that those officers do not have to use necessary force to make that arrest.”

In other words: If you submit with proper docility to the commands issued by the slave patrol, they won’t have to beat or kill you.

Like most exponents of that view, Lynch assumes that any gust of verbal halitosis that escapes the wet hole at the bottom of a police officer’s face is a “lawful order.” For this reason he insists that resisting arrest “is a serious crime, and must be treated that way by all.”

In fact, resisting unlawful arrest — while considered an actual crime, and prosecuted as such — is an ancient, venerable, and indispensable right of free people [5]. Under the still-valid Supreme Court precedent John Black Elk v. U.S [6]. (1900), a citizen has a legally recognized right to use lethal force to prevent the consummation of an unlawful arrest.

Perhaps, somewhere in the reptilian recesses of what passes for Lynch’s mind, there is an awareness of that fact, and a rapidly coalescing fear of the prospect that the public will come to understand it, as well. This may be why he admonished PBA members to use “all the resources of the NYPD” when they are dealing with a member of the productive class who isn’t willing to endure the indignity and injury of a state-licensed abduction. In other words: Use any means necessary — including lethal force — to insure that resistance is futile.

A lot of what people are saying about cops is justified. Most cops being good doesn't make it okay that lack of accountability allows other cops to engage in questionable/unlawful behavior. You're playing a very dangerous game when cops are increasingly allowed to bend the rules and get away with it. Also, are all of these good cops not supposed to defend what is right and call out the bad ones? Whether or not anybody wants to admit it there is a real problem with the United States police force, and it is getting bigger. I personally think it is directly related to the war on drugs.

Are there dirty cops? Yes. In fact - hell yes.

Are they ignored? Sometimes. Cops have the same problem as soldiers or sailors. Uniform blindness. They protect their own, just as you would.

I can't say I would have turned a blind eye to somebody engaging in unlawful activity that could potentially be harming people that don't deserve it.

I dunno. Know I have done it odd times and I admit it. Turned a blind eye to behavior that isn't going to hurt the unit and is not sociopathic. Betting most vets here have done so. The Us vs. Them mentality catches on fast.

I personally went over there with the us vs them mentality and eventually realized that the world isn't, can't be and never will be that black and white. I realized that a lot of the problems that plague the world are unfortunately caused by little more than paranoia/fear and an unwillingness to understand people that are different than you. I wasn't able to dehumanize them, because I realized that they are humans too.

That, they are. The more people who get that, the better.

They are in the main, just people. Trying to make a living, provide for their kids and get ahead. Proud as hell, too. Try giving aid without accepting something. Even if it's a stick of chewing gum. I like them. A lot.

Yet there is a malignancy. The Muslim equivalent of the Westboro Baptist Church without the profit motive.

I believe that malignancy is caused by fear/paranoia and an unwillingness to understand people that are different. I don't think they are inherently bad people; I think they are desperate and misguided people. More fighting isn't going to change anything. The only way to truly change the world for the better is for enemies to recognize the humanity of their foes and come to terms with their differences.

We are on the same page there. Same paragraph even.

I dislike the Police bashing threads too. Especially when the story embellishes.  I have several family members including my grandfather who are or were Police officers, one even a former police chief, and so have grown up with a deep respect for them and what they do each day. But I'm also aware that some incompetent and even bad ones do get into the department from time to time.  But no different than where each of us work, and no different than the military.    No, – I would say it’s far better than the military. I’ve been a guard at  Navy briggs, and I am shocked at some of the crimes Sailors and Marines can commit that we had locked up, including cold blooded murder. And I ask myself each time, “How the heck did this guy get in?”. The same questions are asked by Police Officers, when one of their own does something stupid or illegal. 
Maybe I wouldn’t ignore these threads so much if the one that post them all the time would balance it out a bit with stories of Police doing something heroic, or heart touching – showing their humanity. The stories are out there if they would care to look.

Respect to your family! Being a cop is bloody hard work.  :beer:

As to the positive stories though: do you know how hard I look for positive stories to post, to balance the negatives? Just can't find them. Bad news sells, and most cops are pretty quiet about the good they do in the first place. One of the things I like about them. A good 99% of their day is helping people and it almost never gets mentioned.

No one cares when police do something good.  They only care when it is something bad.

And using the term "commissar," really?  Are we in the Soviet Union, comrade?
