Policing Porn Isn’t Part of The Job

 

An incident at a Bethesda library:
Two uniformed men from a Homeland Security detachment made an announcement stating that pornography was not acceptable viewing at the library. They then questioned a patron’s choice of reading material. From the article: “A librarian intervened, and the two men went into the library’s work area to discuss the matter. A police officer arrived. In the end, no one had to step outside except the uniformed men. They were officers of the security division of Montgomery County’s Homeland Security Department, an unarmed force that patrols about 300 county buildings — but is not responsible for enforcing obscenity laws.”
Sweet god, people, how far does this farce have to run before you realise that the “threat” that Homeland Security was set-up to combat is *you*?
Fortunately, these men were working for the county Homeland Security, not the Federal one.  And they were acting on their own.  However, it is the current political cuture that created the situation where people think this is acceptible behavior.
Do you think Hitler killed each Jew himself?
Do you think Hitler ordered each killing himself?
He merely setup the climate, and allowed people to do what they would within the framework he defined.
This is the same thing that is happening today.
Considering it’s commonly reported on CNN that the FBI has people looking for pornography, full-time, I think it’s nigh time people start to wake the fuck up and protect their freedoms before they erode completely away!
