Recently in Shelby County, Tennessee, a sheriff’s deputy stopped a man for driving with expired tags. In other words, he had not yet paid the state forced extortion fee for being allowed to go where he chose to go in his vehicle. The problem was that the man stopped by deputy Micah McNinch, Wayne Ables, was rushing his mother to the hospital that was less than a mile away when he was accosted by the sheriff’s deputy.
The woman in question, Vernice Ables, was 83 years old and suffering from a lung condition and could not breathe. Instead of escorting this man and his mother immediately to the hospital, the cretin cop in a state issued costume decided to call for an ambulance while keeping this man and his mother hostage while continuing to issue a revenue gathering ticket. Her failing and obvious medical distress was not considered by this sheriff’s deputy, and during the wait for the ambulance, the woman died in her son’s vehicle.
This poor woman was gasping for air and suffering greatly, but apparently, this deputy without a soul felt that beating down a citizen for an expired license plate was more important than the life of this woman.
Was this a lapse in judgment, a complete loss of common sense or just today’s standard police operating procedure of intimidation, control and submission of the serf like populace that now resides in this country?
There are two things that stand out in this very sad incident. First, the sheriff’s deputy in question completely ignored the dire medical situation of Vernice Ables, and proceeded to use police state tactics in order to force the submission of Wayne Ables and his mother, all for the sake of a minor traffic ticket. His training by the state becomes perfectly evident, that of treating the citizenry with no respect or compassion.
Secondly, why did Wayne Ables risk his mother’s death by stopping when he was literally just one minute or so from the hospital? Why did he not ignore the police and continue on to his destination, one that could have saved the life of his mother? There could be several answers to these questions. He could have been brainwashed into believing that he has an obligation to obey state gendarmes regardless of the situation. He could have been frightened due to knowledge about the brutal behavior of today’s militarized police in the U.S., and rightfully feared for his life. He could due to his lifetime of state indoctrination have been conditioned to never dissent and never to act for his own self interest or that of his family.
Regardless of the reasons, in my opinion he should have put his mother’s health first. It is a sad state of affairs when almost the entire population stands in fear of doing the right thing due only to fear of the nation state apparatus. It is time to ignore bad laws and police state tactics, and act like responsible human beings. It is time to use active dissent instead of wallowing in perpetual fear!
