There are way too many stories like this tasered pregnant lady where cops are abusive and walk. Where “men of the cloth are abusive” and walk. If a person happens to take the time and go through Seminary school, then graduate from the Police academy, then theoretically they would be totally immune from just about any legal accountability. Rape, molestation, murder, assault, thief, intimidation, pedophilia, on and on and on.
Citizens are punished far greater than those paid and sworn to serve and protect them. Isn’t it a greater crime when the protector becomes the predator? Who’s worst the wolves you can identify or the wolves in sheep’s clothing? As a cop you are given weapons to protect yourself and citizens from crime and you tase small children and pregnant women…word? As a priest/minister you are presented and projected as a “man of God” (which is a load in itself as by definition we would all be) and you abuse that trust to trap children in your web of sexual perversion…word?
If we cannot hold soldiers, police, politicians, and pastors to a standard of decency and accountability for their violence and crimes NOT in the name serving or protecting, then why have laws at all and why should anyone follow them?
The constitution is too conditional a document for it to dictate decency and justice with any conviction. If it is the foundation then no wonder our civility is so suspect…
Here’s to becoming Bishop Doctor Captain Lott -_-
