Former US Republican Treasury Assistant calls US police Gestapo/criminals. Is this true ?

Posted on July 4th, 2011 by admin1 in republican email lists

Ok first who is this guy ?

Paul Craig Roberts [email him] was Assistant Secretary of the Treasury during President Reagan’s first term. He was Associate Editor of the Wall Street Journal. He has held numerous academic appointments, including the William E. Simon Chair, Center for Strategic and International Studies, Georgetown University, and Senior Research Fellow, Hoover Institution, Stanford University. He was awarded the Legion of Honor by French President Francois Mitterrand

Second where am I getting this from ?

His blog

Third what did he actually say ? (Clips from the article I found interesting – below )

The American police have never prevented crimes. In olden days, the police solved crimes by finding the guilty party. No more. In our time, the police create crimes. And that is why the US prison population is twice the size of China’s, an authoritarian country with a population four to five times larger than America’s.

There you have it. The American Police—”support your local Gestapo”—spend their time engineering false crimes and not investigating real crimes. Americans are more at risk from the police than they are from criminals.

Never make the mistake of calling the police, and never get stopped by a traffic cop. You run the risk that he will drop a bag of drugs into your car and arrest you on a drug offense. If you encounter a police officer, be sure you have thousands of dollars with which to buy him off from making false charges. Most police charges are false charges. Americans need to wake up to this fact or the American prison population will outstrip the rest of the world combined.

What Wikipedia has to say about him

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paul_Craig_Roberts

Forget about his politics for a moment and put all those partisan issues aside

This a rich man – he isn’t worried about where his next meal is coming from

He was part of the system the government the inner circle whatever you would like to call it –

He gains nothing by being critical in a public forum and risks much —

He isn’t running for any office(s) he isn’t likely to be welcome by Republicans or Democrats and he is in his late 60’s (69)

At that age it is likely his career for the most part is over – He has to coast on whatever his previous achievements have gotten him

And as I said one of those achievements is wealth –

Is what this guy telling you true ?

What are your reactions to this ?
A Republican — a life long Republican who was part of Regan’s government is a liberal academic and that is your "basis" for dismissing him ?

Wow -that is "special "

A high ranking official should be taken seriously
