    Why is a Deutsche Bank mouthpiece suggesting “negative retail deposit rates or perhaps wealth taxes”? The answer is to (supposedly) stimulate our economies.

Thursday Tragicomedy: The Zombie A-Cop-alypse Is Coming

Tyler Durden's picture




 

While everyone (and certainly all those hedge funds who have by now given up on Q4) is watching the sliding market, silently crying inside and mesmerized by Simon Potter's reluctance to bail out "confidence" and all those underwater pension plans, here is a quick glance at what is going on in the real world, courtesy of the New York FBI office.

And to think New York's "finest" had problems when they were merely shooting innocent bystanders...

Why only one officer if it's a conspiracy?

Maybe you read that wrong. 

I think they're saying the FBI *IS* the "conspiracy to kidnap, cook, and eat women."  They arrested that cop as a small part of their nefarious plan.

Someone should do something, now that the FBI has announced its wicked intention.

Psychological profiling has consistently revealed major similarities between psychological "makeup" of armed police officers & violent criminals.

 

Personality traits of armed police and criminals are remarkably similar based on use of the Zuckerman-Kuhlman Personality Questionnaire (ZKPQ), a 30 Item Work Values Inventory, and a multiple-choice sentence completion task.

Not to paint with too broad of a brush, but kids who I knew growing up who decided on careers in law enforcement were not exactly the most law abiding among my peers. Quite the opposite, in fact. Just about anyone with whom I have ever shared this observation has a similar one. Add to that the conditioning they receive, both through their training, but then on the job... But again, a broad stroke, and perhaps a bit unfair.

I'm not in any way claiming that law enforcement officers are inclined to commit crime nor become corrupt at a higher rate than what's prevalent amongst the general population.

I am claiming that there's a credible case to be made that law enforcement officers and criminals share an astounding number of personality traits based on credible psychological studies that have consistently yielded the same net results and conclusions.

Instead of thinking of these results in terms of "police officers are criminals," I find it more accurate to submit something similar to "police officers and criminals both have a similarly & remarkably high inclination to believe that the ends justify the means," or something similar.

This is where we get into the realm of the trampling on of concepts such as "due process" and such.

Oh, the irony. Did you see what this man is suggesting?

"The results offer evidence to support the recruitment of certain offenders for active duties within the armed wing of the police service."

He also notes "To use a footballing metaphor, it would be like transferring to a team which, arguably, still enjoys rather more home support. In paying off their debt to society, many ex-offenders will respond positively to the demands of the job and should relate well to their new colleagues."

Ah yes, paying off their debt. Sure, give them a gun and a badge, and have the police unions protect them when then shoot unarmed folks. (although I bet they're already street smart enough to plant a weapon in such a case.) As long as they'll bash the heads of protestors, they'll fit right in with all the neanderthals in blue.

Also, my experience is very similar to kridkrid's. I knew a few guys in high school who wanted to be cops. They were for the most part losers and quasi-criminals, and more than anything wanted to have power over those who in all respects were their superiors.

We are only getting warmed up when it comes to police abuses. Police will be the new warlords when social order breaks down. They will make the gangs look like rank amateurs, and they will outgun anyone who resists.

these trigger-happy Cops weren't suffering from a diet, they clearly had too much energy for the job at hand

it takes incredible skill (cough) to target 1 man and shoot 11 other people ..an incredible failure to success rate everyone would agree!

maybe positive employment discrimination (ie. anyone but a capable white guy) has gone too far in the NYPD, and they sent out the epileptic fit, one-eye-only, shakey finger sufferers crack shooting police unit for this job?

the entire NYPD needs serious target practice and hand-eye co-ordination tests before they slaughter the whole population of NY at their next any-moving-target-is-fair-game shoot out

I'm lookin forward to the rumoured re-make of the Deerhunter by the NYPD, it's called

in fact less than that, half of them not paying tax in revolt will cause any Govts cashflow to seize up and soon after debt to implode ..Game Over

small business is the single most important part of the economy from any angle, most people employed, most turnover, most taxes paid... it leads the economy, not the fat cats

That's not really a concern given that I've plainly stated I live in NYC on many occasions here.  I have great faith in the relative permanence of the digital record. 

I don't pretend to understand the "anti-city" vibe around these parts, but I don't take it seriously.
