"Authorities" over riding their authorities...

My recent post on power tripping police and related security personnel theorized that, as paranoid as it might sound, there is an insidious and intentional force behind these pathological behaviors. Cops, TSA agents, security guards, politicians on the municipal levels are going way beyond their job descriptions as well as crossing ethical and moral lines. There is also a trend of police, cops, guards, and so on utterly ignoring their superiors and the law and doing just what they please. This all done despite the fact they know they're being taped, photographed and recorded. I speculate that aside from the global anxiety we're all experiencing in these times, these cops and cop types are being literally being fed something. Shot up with drugs, something in the water, literally there are pills of many hues in the Kool-Aid. Whatever the transmission, something is changing the brain patterns of these goons to behave very, very badly, often with fatal results.

Two more items of people with badges: this story about a TSA agent intimidating a female driver because she wasn't driving fast enough:
An off-duty Transportation Security Administration agent faces a misdemeanor harassment charge after allegedly tailing, flashing his badge and blowing his car horn at a woman who was driving too slowly for him, police said on Wednesday.
Police in South Windsor, Connecticut, said Donald Eichler, 63, was upset that the motorist ahead of him was traveling 5 to 10 miles per hour below the posted speed limit of 40 mph on a busy Connecticut road early on Tuesday.
As the article points out, TSA officers have no local authority.

Here's a story about a Wal-mart security guard who decided to ignore the facts as well as the store manager's orders, and cause much harm to this family, who were accused of stealing less than $3.00 worth of chicken. After accusing the couple of stealing and refusing to look at the security tape, the guard made his intentions known, and acted on them:
The complaint continues: "The assistant manager said in presence of plaintiff and her husband: 'I see where she scanned it, I see where it's been rung up.' Plaintiff responded: 'I did scan it, I told you.' Ricky, plaintiff's husband said I'll pay for it again if you want me to. The assistant manager then said to the security guard: 'Well what do you want to do?' The security guard said he wanted to put plaintiff and her husband in jail."
When the security guard found that Mary Hill Bonin had worked at another Wal-Mart, he called that store and informed it "that she was being charged with a Theft of Property in the Third Degree," even though the assistant manager already had told him that the chicken bones had been bought and paid for, the Bonins say.
Overruling the assistant manager, the Wal-Mart guard called police, who handcuffed man and wife, led them out through the store that way and threw them in jail. [italics mine]
Charges were dropped, but that's little solace for this family who lost everything because of this.
