Judge makes it official: America is a Police State

See also

In April the Tenth US Circuit Court of Appeals in Denver ruled that the police have a legal right to stop, search and arrest anyone anywhere anytime for committing or not committing a crime or doing or not doing anything right or wrong.

All that's required of a cop is to invent a pretext.

According to a Huffington Post article a person can be arrested for "driving with your hands at the ten-and-two position on the steering wheel at 7:45 PM, taking a scenic route and having acne."

Cindy Lee Westhoven of Tucson, Arizona had been doing all of that; thereby fitting the profile of a person who smuggles undocumented immigrants and drugs (neither of which would be a crime in a libertarian society).

So you'd better not drive while wearing a business suit because that fits the profile of a white collar criminal.

And don't drive in a baseball cap and a team jersey because that fits the profile of a carjacker.

And whatever you do don't look up or down or left or right or straight ahead, scratch your nose, smile or frown or drive safely because that fits the profile of someone who is guilty of something trying not to look guilty of something.

The Police State is upheld by the federal courts because they're run by judges who are nothing more than politically connected public bureaucrats, who were typically bought and paid for by politicians, who got their educations in taxpayer-funded public schools and public universities and were trained in public judicial systems and have never lived in the real world.

Judges think "civilization" begins and ends with "The Law" which is anything the politicians and the lawyers say it is. If the masters who yank their chains say the Police State is "The Law" then it's "The Law."

Once little people with little minds get just a little taste of that magical government power they go mad with it. Judges and cops are no exceptions.

Cindy Lee Westhoven's mistake was speaking to the border control agent who stopped her as though he was a normally intelligent being not overdosed on a power high.

"I thought you were going to let me go," she told the Majestic and All Powerful Law Tyrant. "Do you think I'm hauling illegal aliens?"

Bam! Suspicion! Confession! Probable Cause! Arrest!

The lesson she learned the hard way? Never talk to the cops!

It's chaos. There's a total Police State out there.
