Law enforcement use for political purposes

According to the Wisconsin Professional Police Association Director  Jim Palmer:

The thought of using law enforcement officers to exercise force in order to achieve a political objective is insanely wrong and Wisconsin sorely needs reasonable solutions and not potentially dangerous political theatrics

This of course is in response to Wisconsin Governor Walker's request that the police go get the AWOL representatives, and bring them back.   This would forward Walker's agenda of getting rid of unions.   The people Jim Palmer represents are all unionized, so in this instance, not doing what is asked of them isn't just the right thing to do, but it's in the best interest of those Palmer represents.

Let's see what it means to be "politics":

politics - the activities and affairs involved in managing a state or a government
 The police are the enforcement arm of the government, it is hard to believe that they can separate themselves from exercising force in order to achieve political objectives isn't it?

Have you ever heard them say, Police and Citizens should be treated equally when it comes to the injuries they inflict on each other?   Absolutely not!   They want to charge people with crimes who run away, and officers HURT THEMSELVES while chasing them!

These guys even want their DOGS to be treated better then the people their dogs have battered.

Have they ever spoken out on the demanded use of police force to steal all "Personal property" deemed as a narcotic?    No, they haven't.   And police continue to wage a useless war on drugs that goes against the very intentions of the founding of this nation.

Jim Palmer directs a political organization, and this man claims politics has nothing to do with policing?    That's like saying water has nothing to do with farming!   

While I agree with Jim Palmer's statement, I simply wish he wasn't being a charlatan when he said it.
