DEFINITION

When I thought about the police force before, I thought about how they expose their lives to ‘protect and serve‘ the communities they come from.

There seems to be a tendency to be drifting aways from the meaning behind that motto.

The picture/meme above is a perfect example.

In February 1955, the Los Angeles Police Department, through the pages of the internally produced BEAT magazine, conducted a contest for a motto for the police academy.

The conditions of the contest stated that: “The motto should be one that in a few words would express some or all the ideals to which the Los Angeles police service is dedicated. It is possible that the winning motto might someday be adopted as the official motto of the Department.”

To Protect and to Serve“, the motto of the Los Angeles Police Department since 1955, has been adopted by many other police forces.

‘All-Out War’ in North Dakota as Police Arrest 141 Water Protectors
Activists vow to keep up resistance to Dakota Access Pipeline

Police arrested 141 people in North Dakota on Thursday, November 3, moving in with pepper spray and armored tanks on Native American water protectors and other activists who for months have waged resistance against the Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL).

Tara Houska, an Ojibwe attorney and director of the rights group Honor the Earth, told Democracy Now! on Friday, November 4, that the raid was an act of “all-out war … waged on Indigenous protectors.”

Houska, who was reportedly shot in the face with a beanbag round during the onslaught, also said in a separate statement released by a coalition of Indigenous groups on Friday,

“Yesterday was a shameful moment in American history.

Law enforcement is supposed to serve and protect the people, not corporate interests. Police enacted violence on people who were armed only with prayer.”

As we head into primary season, Sarah Palin is back again — on SNL and in real life.

And, as always, Tina Fey’s Palin impression is almost too close to the real thing, like a Highlights magazine spot the difference game where there are only two differences.

Can you tell reality from performance?

Can anyone?

A dear blogger friend taught me this concept.

~IN HER OWN WORDS~

IOTD” is image of the day, a concept I came up with. I teach visual meditative therapy – or in easy terms – a mini mental holiday. For some people it is very difficult for them to get their image right. I post an image a day for people to use in their mini mental vacay. Some are serious, some are silly, and some are just beautiful!”
