“We have historically been a paramilitary organization...”


“We have historically been a paramilitary organization,” observed Indianapolis Police Chief Rick Hite during a September 17 City Council meeting. “And we serve whoever sits in that chair, regardless of race, gender, creed, or political party. I don’t know what we would do if we had to go to battle, and we had to make a determination, based on past practices, whether or not we wanted to go into battle. … I am a soldier in an army. We serve you in that way…. We should not be in a position where we’re going to have to decide how we’re going to police this city.”

Para-military: adjective

adjective: paramilitary; adjective: para-military (of an unofficial force) organized similarly to a military force.
 
 
A word of caution to our LEO who think they are SEALs & SF - If you behave like a paramilitary force, you may not complain when citizens begin to treat you that way.

  1. I hammer these assholes quite often at the local news websites.
    I'd say some Indy folks are waking up, but the majority still wishes to polish the badge.

  2. An Open Letter to the Chief
    Dear Chief Dick Hite,
    We have historically been a nation of independent, liberty minded individuals.It seems you need to be reminded of whom it is you are to serve. As an oath-bound civil servant your fist duty is to the constituents/tax payers in your community, You are not the commandant of a private paramilitary army in service of the council. Your comments underscore an atmosphere of hostility towards the civilian population already too prevelant in law-enforcement. The sychophantic hand licking of your masters further demonstrates your unfitness for the position you hold. I will be recommending an imediate dismissal from your current position as well as a psychological evaluation and perhaps a civics and US History class taught by a Constitutional scholar, not a marxist.

  3. I'm down with that, Mr. Deaver, and I'll add this. I haven't had the time to learn the finer details of this Marvin Louis Guy thing, but if it's as it appears, it ain't gonna stand and that's all there is to it.

    From the little I've seen, it strikes me that a crime was committed when he was charged. I don't really care what happens about that, but if this was a guy protecting his home/castle, then he cannot be punished for THAT particular decision...not by anyone who wishes to be civil, anyway. Period.

    After all, the only thing that can do that sort of punishing, is Tyranny.
