The U.S. Police State: How The United States Has Become Its Own Worst Nightmare

Total Number of People Fatally Shot by British Police in Last 3 Years: 2

Average Number of People Fatally Shot by U.S. Police Per Day So Far in 2015: 2.6

Of all the alarming statistics, stories, and, increasingly, videos that indicate a rising tide of police brutality – or, as the government more euphemistically terms it, “excessive force” – the above numbers should be the most concerning for every citizen of the United States. Not simply because of the astronomical disproportion at hand, but because of the object of that disproportion. To whom do we compare with so unfavorably?

That’s right. The very tyrannical entity from which we originally escaped, then rebelled. We’ve become our own worst nightmare.

Why did we rebel? State overreach that included an invasive, aggressive, and overly hostile standing militia – then the equivalent a police force. No wonder the Bill of Rights is so preoccupied with the subject…

2nd Amendment:

“A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”

3rd Amendment:

“No soldier shall, in time of peace, be quartered in any house without the consent of the owner, nor in time of war, but in a manner to be prescribed by law.”

4th Amendment:

“The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.”

Today, we focus on the “keep and bear arms” clause, but, for the Founding Fathers, the “well regulated militia” was arguably the more important and hotly contested point. Recalling the daily abuses of British soldiers throughout the colonies, many key figures debated whether a standing army should exist at all.
