Some years ago it came
out that the government was quietly funding more police-type shows and
increased police-state police behavior. If you job is a government propaganda
specialist, using television shows would surely be one of many tactics.
After all, there are countless ways to charge citizens with petty crimes
and collect money from them, while demonstrating to the unaware public
that crime is everywhere.
In the past we had what were commonly called "game wardens" in every
state. Now in many states such as NY and Maine game wardens are now
considered as police and given the same powers to kill, arrest and cite
people. Often their vehicles display lettering such as "Environmental
Police." in Maine, these officers wear olive drab uniforms virtually
identical to what the US Army wears, along with the same style boots.
And of course, they have the brush cut to go with it.
Animal Planet was a network devoted solely to animal life, Now it is
running a television series featuring the day and night actions of environmental
police. I wonder just how much the network was paid by the government
to air this overt propaganda series. On a recent episode, a camera crew
spent most of the time with a man called officer LaFlame.
Here are a few highlights which clearly show the agenda of the show,
and how easy it is to break a law in Maine:
* A boat was found abandoned on private property during a patrol. In
case you didn't get catch that, the boat is on PRIVATE property. LaFlame
noted that "95% of the land in Maine is privately owned." The sixteen
foot long Galaxy brand boat had the registration numbers ground off
and was found on a boat trailer. It's also worth noting that registration
numbers on boats are mainly for using or driving the vessel on water,
not on land. Boat trailers are also registered (and usually inspected)
for use on roads and highways.
An investigation was made after LaFlame traced the faint numbers of
the registration with a felt tip pen to identify the last known
owners. It was stated the owner faced a $2,000 fine for this abandoned
boat. One would think an issue like this is a regular police officer
or sheriff matter, not a job for a game warden.
* Another game officer was hiding in a drainage ditch when a pickup
truck illuminated a bear. Officers came up to the vehicle and made the
man who was driving get out. He was immediately informed "You know that
as of Sept. 1st it's illegal to illuminate wildlife, right?" The man
replied, "My wife told me there was a bear over there, that's all."
The man was issued a citation for doing this horrific crime.
Then the narrator chimes in, "If there was a firearm in the truck, the
crime would be much more serious." Yet during another part of the same
show, officer LaPlame noted that "Almost everyone in Maine is armed."
* Immediately after the night crime scene, the next event was a black
bear about 8ft. off the ground up in an oak tree. Most likely this was
late afternoon. You could clearly see for miles all the surrounding
homes and fields. What was the first thing the officer did with bear
up in the tree? He switched on his vehicle's spotlight and shined it
directly on the bear. Clearly he showed game officers are exempt from
obeying the same laws they enforce. Why was a searchlight needed at
all? The camera had no problem picking up the bear.
* In another scene it was opening day for Moose hunting. Officers were
out on patrol at 4:30AM looking for hunters and listening for gunshots
from those who start hunting before the official opening time. They
seemed somewhat disappointed when there was no one to catch.
* As the cameraman and officer were driving through a residential neighborhood
the officer pointed out one home in particular. He noted that "Just
last week I cited a man in that home for poaching a black bear in his
front yard." Defending yourself is now defined as "poaching." Clearly
the message they give here is, "Don't defend yourself. Let the bear
break into your home first (which has happened to many people already
across the country.) Let a wild animal endanger or kill your children.
Today, animals are more important than people.
These are all clear examples showing the mad police state we live with
and in. It is not a police state we are entering into as some claim.
This madness continues because no one speaks out or even tries to add
a measure of common sense to stop the progression of foolish laws and
regulations. Even though Nazi Germany was less than a century ago, and
was extremely well documented with documents, film and living witness
testimony, it seems very few people today have learned anything from
