TaxEater Olympics

From an Ionia, Michigan newspaper:

Ionia Complex Emergency Response Team (ERT) went to Moundsville, W.Va., to participate in a nationwide mock prison riot competition with several other teams from Michigan to form the Michigan ERT team. Overall, the Michigan ERT team took second place, and three Ionia corrections officers ranked high in an individual obstacle course called “Super SWAT Cop.”

“I am just really proud of our three guys,” said Ionia Complex ERT Captain Lt. Patrick Nielsen. “Our team is a group of very dedicated individuals, and have a lot of pride in what we do.”

I’m sure the “search and secure” event was most compelling. Was there also a Best Brushcut competition, or perhaps a “Taser a Grandma Today” tournament?

    Brushcutting? Nah, that sounds too much like honest work.

    Anytime I read things like this, I picture $100 bills swirling down the toilet….

    Tase a Grandma, Shoot a dog, Kill a child, yea, those guys need to stay sharp…..

    So did these thugtards perform “juiced” to replicate conditions “in the field”, or was this a “drug-free event” like regular Olympic games?

    The phrase, “Taser a Grandma Today” tournament, is kind of disturbing, especially when combined with their statements of pride.

    Such an event would require pregnant women, and children holding pets, to be standing in front of the grandma, to determine points. Eck.

    In Greece the unemployment for teenagers is 30% and possibly the source of some of the violence there, a forward looking government that expects to be in a Greek-like setting might be pro-active and put troublemaking teens in prison, using any number of new laws aimed at controlling the behavior of people, just as a precaution, i.e. blood tests for teenage drivers and those wearing casts (you broke your arm and now you’re driving, you must be on medication of course and off to the needle with you). Parents might not like that and be dragged off too? Or they might fold and let the state replace them? After all, ‘Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer’ is a popular national song, it reflects,… what? I don’t know I can’t stand that song.

    How big is the prison industrial output in the U.S.?
    Is it hard to see because the money the prison system makes is from shaking down work release prisoners and not from actual output?
    A system like that would need a strong, young and employed base to continue, it would have to expand to make up for lost revenue from a slowing economy and increased costs, perhaps even raise the amount shaken down from prisoners, increasing the odds of riots? Decreases in pay are for everyone Except those operating the prison industrial complex?

    With a number of states having budget problems, what happens if they have to turn off the air-conditioning or heat at the prisons?

    Would it be more efficient for the prison industrial complex to emulate the web and lose the bricks and mortar? Maybe the government could offer a forced voluntary homeower tax credit to house a GPS micro-chipped prison inmate complete with shock collar and remote?

    Just makes ya wanna giggle, doesn’t it?

    Thanks for posting this Karen. I have a hard time believing that, “prison riots” are society’s most pressing, serious dilemma. However, in the coming months with increasing civil unrest and revolt, the powers that be will want their “kapos” to be trained in how to deal with all these people speaking out against injustice. aka the surge in “corrections.” Also, look who else is hiring these days:

    Of course, the commercial was removed from the site as soon as word got out that they were recruiting people to work in this field…Wanna be a FEMA camp guard? For more information, contact the police state nearest you!!!! (which is pretty much damn near everywhere).

    We’re not very far removed from the statist monstrosities of the Nazis and Soviets. More individuals incarcerated than any other country in the world, more behind bars per capita than any other country in the world. Politicians pass more laws that make more people into criminals every day. That makes them political prisoners.
