First I want to say that many corporate (security) sympathizers tend to defend private policing, but this article will debunk all their arguments and show how private policing is the end-all end-game ultimate threat to freedom in America and humanity as a whole, all in the name of protecting corporate profits $ while working hand in hand with government for their greater long-term new world order plans.
In 2014 I covered the rising threat of private security now arresting American citizens in the streets of America after witnessing firsthand the arrest of a gentleman in Hollywood, California. The private security company looked very threatening with guns, bulletproof vests and the whole tyranny outfit. The frightening scene looked more like a SWAT military situation with around 10-15 fully armed agents and multiple nearly unmarked cars, only there were no tanks or machine guns that I saw. To my chagrin, a closer look showed that no police were present, all of this was being done in the name of private police!
Since this article and accompanying video I’ve been attacked by some with comments claiming this is no big deal, that I’m exaggerating, an idiot, a fool and that I don’t know what I’m talking about because private security is a good thing. Let’s take a look at the issue more closely.
To add some historical perspective, private security has been around in the U.S. since at least the late 1800s. Private security boomed in the early 20th century, and by the 1930s private security companies were becoming a problem due to their questionable tactics. According to one research site:
The early twentieth century might be thought of as a golden age of private detective firms. The Pinkerton Agency, for example, is credited with influencing the development of investigation techniques used by the public police through its systems of surveillance and its development of a file system that was used by the Federal Bureau of Investigation until it developed its own case file system (Sklansky 1999; Draper 1978; O’Reilly and Ellison 2004). Indeed, it was not until the 1930s that private security stature and legitimacy came to be questioned. A significant event in this process was the establishment of the La Follette Committee to investigate threats to civil liberties (particularly labor-related threats) associated with the private security industry. A particular cause for concern was Pinkerton’s use of espionage techniques and other methods to break strikes and monitor industrial activities.
