US Criminal Justice System Primary Weapon of American Repression



TEHRAN (FNA)- Despite the glowing pleasantries that are constantly hammered into the collective conscience of low-information Americans by various US Media outlets about “democracy”, “American exceptionalism”, “the shining city on the hill” and “every American can be anything they want to be”, the fact is the United States has long been a soft dictatorship for the very few.

The United States is a corporatist dictatorship where the combined economic and political elite use official institutions to exercise terror on the population. The United States of 2015 would make Stalin blush.


United States elections have long been a sham and are specifically designed to prevent changes with clever “ballot access laws” and other regulations designed to assure only the right candidates can participate. Americans have more choices when it comes to shoes than they do political choices, thus America’s political system is very socialist, i.e. controlled and planned.

Nowhere is “Institutional Terror” more evident than in the so-called American criminal justice system, where both police and the judicial system have an incestuous relationship. Over the last 15 years, the number of citizens killed by US law enforcement has grown every year, and not all are criminals and that number does not take into account routine beatings and “mistakes” such as home invasions by Law Enforcement at the wrong address resulting in the death(s) of the occupant(s). In 2015, the number killed by police will exceed 500, and over 400 will be termed justifiable homicides, meaning the system will investigate itself and declare itself justified. Meanwhile, the amount of civil judgments paid by various units of governments will increase, as a “cost of doing business (killing)”. Police misconduct claims in New York City, including excessive force lawsuits, have risen over 200 percent since 2000, while the amount New York City has paid out has risen 75 percent in that same period, $64.4 million in fiscal year 2012. Then, there’s the August 2014 report from the CDC that documented 4,531 citizen or civilian deaths by police from 1999 to 2011. Interestingly, it is much easier to find the number of police killed per year and in- line-of-duty deaths rose from 105 to 121 last year, and of those 50 were killed by gun or assault, but they also sometimes shoot each other which are counted as in-the-line as well by many police depts. For police, stupidity pays as in many cases police officers receive handsome disability awards in such cases and the police officer shooter remains on the job. In fact, over 95 percent of [US] police officers who engage in bad conduct, including assault and murder remain on the job. Police unions and associations in the United States who say “If you do not support the police officers… then you are supporting thugs and criminals”, sound the same as George Bush’s, “If you are with the terrorists then you are against us.” America is in George Bush’s never ending war, which in reality is a war on its own citizens to maintain an illegitimate and corrupt system that no longer enjoys the confidence and support of a vast majority of the people. The American system does this by keeping the populace in constant fear.
