Well, government is about hiring as many people as possible, collecting as much money as possible, and taking and wielding as much power as is possible. They also want to take whatever property, assets, and cash they can get their grubby little hands on. They are affiliated with the international corporate and banking cartels and local organized crime, not you.
Citizens who start Crime Watches, have families, own homes, and especially those who own small businesses are ripe for the plucking and are prime targets of the police state.
I was told by a Stafford Springs, Connecticut, Police Officer that I was not allowed to speak at Crime Watch I co-founded and that I was not allowed to suggest legislation to elected officials that would interrupt the revenue collection system of lawyers, police, the town, the state, and the courts. I was threatened with break up of my marriage, loss of my daughter, loss of my business, loss of my home, loss of everything to be railroaded to prison for the offense of testing the 1st Amendment to see if it really applies. The Police Officer known as "Fat Frank" who lived with his mother, became infatuated with my wife and told me that I did not deserve her. He stalked me and my wife and then arrested me 6 weeks after I dialed 911 being assaulted by a cocaine dealer who I told not to sell drugs in my neighborhood.
Fat Frank wanted to see me do a year and a half in prison for having my ear chomped into and my face pummeled by a human gorilla, and so did the court system. I bled down my neck, my chest, and my underwear was soaked in blood. It is rigged and corrupt. Fat Frank got witnesses to change their sworn statements of what they saw to what he wanted them to say so he could arrest only me. Police gang up on citizens who inform others of what is really going on, and police and the court system target those who interfere with the US Armed Revenue Collection System. Police in the US aren't law enforcement, they are armed revenue collectors. Offshore corporations, bankers, and the lawyer mafia run the US Government for their own profit.
The answer is Civilian Oversight of Police and to get rid of all judge who are monarch who have most sold their souls. A Grand Jury System where citizens without political ties and who are not funded by organized criminals agree to prosecute and try those who are a threat to society, not threats to Big Brother's Police State.
