Those who don’t believe that there is an active War on Police are naïve. This war impacts law enforcement officers on many fronts including the psychological manipulation of the public to distrust and dislike police.

Case in point; Google entering the fray against police by introducing the word “police” as an example of how to use the noun “harassment” in its on-line dictionary and word descriptions. Google the word “harassment” for yourselves and witness Google’s definition and use of the word “harassment.”

Harassment ha•rass•ment, noun; aggressive pressure or intimidation. Example: “they face daily harassment by the police.” Persecution, “intimidation,” pressure by force; coercion; informal hassle.

I am sure that Google could have used an almost infinite number of alternate words besides the word “police” to provide a proper example for the use of the word “harassment;” but they didn’t. The question is why not? Here’s the answer, a subliminal message to the reader that police harass citizens daily. The carefully and subtlety planted message ingrained into the subconscious region of the brain that reinforces the notion that police are the bad guys.

Notice that there is no record or accountability on Google’s part as to who of their thousands of employees took it upon themselves to introduce this notion that police harass citizens daily. That’s the idea. Zero accountability. That’s how this aspect of a psychological War on Police is conducted.

What can the law enforcement do to combat this level of psy-ops against them? Not much really; but you can. You can take it upon yourselves to write to the CEO of Google, demanding that they remove the word “police” from this definition or you will switch from Google products like Google Chrome to another search engine. Tell them you will use their competitors’ products instead of theirs. Hit their “bottom line.”

Finally, remember that the War on Police is being fought every day by those who want to change the fabric of this nation. Use the power of the pen, the phone call, your email, social media and your vote to Make America and the police great again.
