“srf21c” posted in reply to my Omaha massacre entry that his favourite term for policemen is “crime janitors.” I think that’s a great term and everyone should use it! It perfectly reflects what the State police actually does, although there’s not enough emphasis on how immoral they are. After all, janitors don’t break down your door at 2AM because they got a tip that you might have a gram of pot somewhere. Janitors are better than policemen.
On a somewhat related topic, Democracy Sucks had a great article on how statists use names to make other people believe that Anarchists are against whatever good values they believe government is fulfilling. Just because we are against the State does not mean that we are against the values that it is supposed to fulfill (but doesn’t). That’s an important lesson to remember.
