Kentucky State Police used training slideshow that included Hitler quotes and urged officers to be a "ruthless killer"


https://www.cbsnews.com/news/kentucky-state-police-training-slide-hitler-quote-ruthless-killers/



The Kentucky State Police used a training slideshow as recently as 2013 that included quotes from Adolf Hitler advocating violence and urged cadets to be "ruthless." News about the slideshow was first broken by student journalists at the Manual RedEye, the newspaper for duPont Manual High School in Louisville.

(snip)

The Kentucky State Police Academy slideshow is titled "The Warrior Mindset," and its stated objectives include "understand[ing] the importance of ethical and moral decisions as it relates to combat."

(snip)

One slide, titled "Violence of Action," includes a quote from the Nazi leader Adolph Hitler's anti-Semitic manifesto "Mein Kampf": "The very first essential for success is a perpetually constant and regular employment of violence."

(snip)

The slideshow also encourages police trainees to be "ruthless without anger," to have "a mindset void of emotion" and to "meet violence with greater violence." One slide includes the line, "Be the loving father, spouse, and friend as well as the ruthless killer."

1. Anyone Trained Under This, Sir, Needs To Be Put Out To Grass Immediately

Even beyond the poison absurdity of citing Adolph Hitler, the idea police are warriors is high-test barnyard effluvia.

3. The police...

The police, in general, have incentives to embrace Fascism when you consider the benefits and powers it gives them, overall. It means less constrictions and accountability. Corruption is overlooked and becomes commonplace.

The people have to earn the respect of the police, so to speak, rather than the police having to earn the respect of the community they SERVE and PROTECT. They can beat fear into the population.

That was the incentive for the Wiemar police forces to embrace Hitler in Germany.

That considered, we really have to reign this in because it is very tempting, like a box of donuts and once they get to a certain point, we find ourselves in a police state and everything depends on who is running it.
