4 irrefutable truths explaining how all cops are in fact “bad”1. No matter how nice of a person or how noble the intention of the individual, once hired as a police employee, that person is no longer rational, free thinkers.. they are now order followers. If they were not order followers who are “just doing their jobs” they would be rogue vigilantes upholding their own sense of justice and law. Being paid to follow orders is always very dangerous, look at Nazi, Germany. 2.  People with integrity don’t choose careers that initiate violence on peaceful people, no matter how noble they claim the cause to be. Because man made legislation does not always align with morality police by definition enforce (use force/violence) policies that requires the initiation of force against peaceful people not guilty of committing aggression. — Think ‘drug war’ and how many lives have been ruined because of victimless crimes enforced by people who claim authority over your actions, your possessions and your consciousness.3. Crime, fraud, brutality and misconduct by police are so apparent and prevalent these days it really makes you wonder how much gets swept under the rug. How many cops turn a blind eye because of the inside code of conduct known as “the blue code of silence”, or also “the thin blue line”? How many cops want to keep their pay and pension and continue to allow crimes to go unreported and their colleagues unaccountable? If you believe this isn’t happening explain to me the incentive of why it wouldn’t? All gangs look out for their members. Besides when the same system that makes the laws is the final arbiter of all conflict including cases of conflict within its own institution, you can always expect fraud and corruption. 4. Cops are paid with stolen tax money. Regardless of how you personally feel about taxation, hopefully you have the intellectual integrity to admit that taxes are not voluntary and are funded by coercion. If they were voluntary they wouldn’t have to be collected at (eventually) gun point. Communities get poor “service and protection” by police employees because there is zero incentive for them to go above and beyond or to be accountable in the slightest. They get paid either way, they know that. When you are paid by stolen money you are not a public servant you are a gang member paid to enforce the rules (laws). There is no distinguishing line between the two. Taxation is coercion/extortion and anything that is paid for by government is paid with stolen money. We all also know that quotas and victimless “crime” revenue generation are other ways that police pervert the law and subsidize their existence. My explanation to the graphic above? Most everyone knows a friend or family member who is a cop and think of them as a good person, Not too many people know politicians. It’s a personal bias and years of deep indoctrination.Its funny because its the same institution, and everyone knows all politicians are corrupt, but don’t dare say all cops are bad, people will lose their minds….Created by: - Police the Police - (A Community Project)

Created by: - Police the Police - (A Community Project)

Everyone can get 100 brochures, no problem. More if you are working with a group. They’ll send them to you for free! But you must be in the US or CAN. I just sent 0.005 BTC to offset the printing/shipping for my own stash. Can’t wait! Much easier than trying to explain the world of bitcoin on my own to those who just keep mumbling, “So… it’s like invisible money… based on nothing?”

On the coattails of the rise of intellectual property and economic monopolies, the Open Source movement is thriving, expanding public access to knowledge, culture and tools. Advocates have opened up everything from software to science, media to politics…and of course, data.
Here are some of the 10 most promising Open Source Hardware projects that might just save the world:

1. Agriculture: FarmBot
We live on a planet that is experiencing exponential population growth. Everybody needs to eat, so many companies are working to make agriculture as efficient as possible. Problem is, they’re all proprietary (or “closed source”). So Rory Aronson, founder of FarmBot, is taking on the challenge of opening up agricultural technologies so we can all start to grow our food as efficiently as possible.
2. Waste: Precious Plastics
Commercial recycling operations are great, but often the applications for recycled materials, especially plastics, are limited. So Design Academy Eindhoven graduate Dave Hakkens recently showcased a series of open source machines he’s developed for repurposing waste plastics into new and useful things. Now anyone can build a local micro-recycling centre to service their (and their communities?) needs.
3. Housing: WikiHouse
WikiHouse is an open source construction. Users can freely download a series of files, purchase a bunch of plywood, and cut the designs out using a CNC router. The pieces all snap together like a giant puzzle (with instructions) and you can even cut out wooden mallets to help knock the joints together. This project is lowering barriers of entry to house building, so almost anyone can do it.
4. Ecology: Open Source Beehives
Bee colony collapse is a crisis we’ve heard a lot about over the past several years. Many people are aware, but there are very few grassroots solutions on the table. The OSBH project is helping citizens prevent bee population decline by bringing sensor-enhanced bee conservation into their backyards. Confession: I’m one of the founders of this project, but I really believe in it’s significance, otherwise I wouldn’t be putting all my energy behind it. If you care about colony collapse, please  check out our Indiegogo!
5. Connectivity: Spark.io
With all this talk of “The Internet of Things” there needs to be a piece of hardware that connects your technologies to the Internet, right? And it needs to be open source, so you can change it to suit your needs. Thats where Spark.io comes in. This Arduino compatible board lets even non-programmers start to make their hardware smarter.
6. Environment: Public Lab
Since our Governments and Corporations have become as corrupted as they are powerful, and democratic process is in many ways broken, the time has come for citizens to look after our own environment. Public Lab is facilitating this movement by developing open source hardware tools to generate knowledge and share data about community environmental health.
7. Fabrication: Lasersaur / Blackfoot
In order to utilise some of the open hardware designs out there, we need reliable digital fabrication tools to bring them from the digital into reality. These two projects give us considerably cheaper access to these tools in the increasingly important areas of laser cutting and CNC milling.
8. Clean Energy 1: The Gasifier Experimenters Kit
Ever wonder if you could turn you compost (or biomass) into energy? With this open source gasifier kit from All Power Labs, you can. This kit, available at multiple levels of energy output, can help you to lower your carbon footprint, while lessening your waste output. As an Open Hardware company, APL offer their kit for sale, but give the plans to make it yourself for free!
9. Clean Energy 2: Zenman Energy
Since energy production is one of the major issues of our time, here’s another open source energy project coming at the solution from a different angle. Zenman Energy have been working tirelessly to develop a cheap solar concentrator for you to harness power from the mother of all energy resources, the sun. Check out what even a mall solar concentrator can do here.
10. Transport: The Tabby
The Tabby is an open source, electric car designed by the team at Open Source Vehicle. According to the team, the whole car (once you have the parts) can be assembled in only an hour. This is a relatively new project, and definitely one to keep an eye on.
