Just how subtle is the effort to influence the man on the street to accept the dominant behavior of the emerging police state. Do not resist? Do not challenge?
This coming from a person I believed was a Constitutionally supportive commentator. http://www.mikeonline.com/
Has Mike been co-opted to sell the “Police State,” narrative? Listen and you tell me?

Mike-Gallagher-Co-opted Really Mike
The gist of Mike’s message I took away from his show on this matter was as follows: If a member of the police gives you an order, do not question…just obey. Blind obedience.
Here is the whole segment of his show on November 27. 2012, for you to hear it all for yourself.
It seems significance to me that Mike mentions how the police in New York act quite aggressively. It is a tough job and the police deserve all the respect they earn just like the rest of us fellow humans.
But, not to make their job any harder, but clearly their efforts to enforce the peace and safety of the public must be restricted to criminal activity. They too work for the benefit and the safety of the people.
This requirement, however, does not give them authority to use force when ever they deem to do so unless justified. if we do not hold the line and demand restraint from those on the force, then are we not encouraging them to become more aggressive? Is this not the trend we see today especially when enhanced with military tactics and strategic weapons deliberately added to the local police arsenal by DHS?
What are your views on this matter?
