Elite Kills Elite

US Marshall Killed During Shootout with Police

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) - A deputy U.S. marshal was killed in a shootout with police officers, who had stopped the agent for driving erratically early Sunday, authorities said. One officer was wounded

Mary Fisher, 46, refused to stop when officers tried to pull her over and led the officers to her home around 6 a.m., according to Sgt. Vince Higgins, a police spokesman.

When the officers told her to get out of the car, she opened her door, pulled out a gun and started shooting at them, Higgins said.

Officer Patrick Taylor, 34, was shot in the leg. He was taken to a hospital, where he remained in stable condition.

Fisher had been in Memphis for several years and began her career as a deputy marshal in the early 1990s, according to the U.S. Marshal's Office.

What? This couldn't be? A member of the elite? Another one of the "were the only ones" who should never have been given a badge. I am beside myself. How am I going to sleep soundedly tonight, knowing Mary Fisher is no longer out there keeping those dangerous criminals from our crime-ridden streets from breaking down my front door while I sleep?

Now, let's get this straight; We've been told to fear someone who buys a US Marshall's badge over the internet, yet, the government approved method of handing out badges from crackerjack boxes is ok? I'm confused...

It isn't the insane, twisted, bully-on-steriods, officers, who are the problem. These are likely not the majority of police, (those being just a bunch of tyrants more then willing to break their sworn oath to the Constitution) . But still, even they are not the problem.

The problem is the citizen's blind trust that these elites are actually out there "to protect and serve". Wake up! It's a propaganda slogan and nothing more. They can paint their cars pink and yellow and describe it as "community policing" until they are blue in the face. It will not change the fact police operate for their own benefit, whether it be ego, money, power, or the lust for more power. They will not magically be there to save you when the burglar, rapists, or murder shows up at your door. There number one rule is to make it home safe at the end of their shift (period) Their pretty colors and colorful PR departments will not make their "dynamic entry" at 4 in the morning over your hibiscus plants any less deadly.

Finally, the belief so many "civilians" have that the elites may trample on other's Constitutional rights, but would never, ever attack freedoms we hold dear is insane. Yet, that very belief is what is causing us to remain divided, while our brothers and sisters are taken out behind the chemical shed and shot.
