|Animal Farm Revisited||Friday, February 27, 2009|

George Orwell's 1945 novel "Animal Farm" is an allegory on how a utopian society is made impossible by the corrupting nature of the very power necessary to create it. The Animal Farm starts off with the premise that all animals are equal, but over time some animals, the pigs, lead by Napoleon, become more than equal.
Our Declaration of Independence states "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness."
Then along came the pigs who wrote this interesting Massachusetts law (MGL 265-13D): http://www.mass.gov/legis/laws/mgl/265-13d.htm.
When I was arrested in June of 2007, the biggest surprise I discovered was that inadvertently touching a police officer constitutes assault and battery. Does it work the other way? Of course not. The pigs have become more than equal. There are also other laws establishing a two tiered legal system.
Whatever happened to the "equal protection clause" of the 14th amendment of the U.S. Constitution? Thomas Jefferson stated that "Tyranny is defined as that which is legal for government but illegal for the citizenry."
I can thank the following useless and repugnant individuals such as Pam Richardson, Tom Sannicandro, Karen Spilka and of course, officer Gregory Reardon, for their exercise of tyranny on me.
Police officers should be fired and never again be allowed to work in law enforcement when they abuse their authority.
