"Be advised that everybody on the property is trespassing." So said a Creek County Sheriff Department officer as he ordered activists off of private property yesterday.

For an eviction ..WTF ? What a bunch of wussies in their Ken doll play soldier outfits. Has law enforcement totally lost it's self respect and oat to protect and serve ? Oh that's right..they are protecting...corporate interest. I never did like the term 'Pigs' for police officers but now I must say...over the last dozen or so years it fits the maority of them nicely,other than it's an insult to the animal species the name is derived from. Petheitic...shameful...disgraceful...and down right third world in it's concept. Reg. police uniforms will do as will standard side arms as with all patrol cops would do. All this tough guy B.S. image stuff is for those cops with low self estimes apparently. It's degrading the image of real troops I think. I guess it helps in recruiting returning troops who are still all into being military ??

I really wonder what this cost the tax dobut the bank only had to pay a small fee for the paper work. Not a very cost effective way to run a police/sheriff department in my opinion.This might be a case where cuts to their funding is needed....
Perhaps they would also do the tax payers justice if they were in the worst of neighborhoods cracking down on street gangs instead of play corporate bouncers or maybe this is just less dangerous/easier than fightng real crime? WHo ever is running that department should be fired in my opinion for incompetence as to use of tax payer dollars.
