The Police: Society gives far too much credit and funding to these people. They're not heroes, they're not martyrs and they're not good people, none of them. These people unlawfully arrested me for not having my drivers licence during the covid 19 pandemic, when all the Secretary Of States across America were closed. They should have considered this a special circumstance but they didn't. One of the officers was searching my car and you could her him on cell phone record saying this dude stinks behind my back. They pulled me over for high head beams and impeding traffic. I was doing 30 in a 55 because it was 10:30p.m. and dark outside and I was just exercising caution. I should not be punished for exercising caution, if more people exercised caution there would be a lot less traffic fatalities and a lot less traffic accidents. If people exercised the appropriate amount of caution in all aspects of their lives the worId would be a much safer and better place. I was in a small city late at night and there wasn't much traffic, I wasn't doing anything dangerous to anyone and yet threatened to give me a ticket for impeding traffic. The only ticket the officer could have fairly given me was for failure to turn off my high head beams and yet even after pulling me over and threatening me with tickets for some reason he decided to change his mind and not ticket me at all, not even for the high head beams. I ask myself, why did he pull me over for a crime, threaten to give me tickets and then change his mind. Was it the fact that I called my mother to the traffic stop and he had to explain himself to her, was it the fact that I stood up for myself and argued with him about the charges, was it the fact that the officer and his partner had to explain their misconduct against me I don't know. But what I do know is by him pulling me over for a crime, by him threatening me with tickets and then failure to ticket me for the appropriate crime is an act of corruption no matter how you look at it. This is just one incidence of the Police's misconduct against me, there's other incidences. On another occasion they called me a liar behind my back and maliciously attacked me, deliberately trying to make me look bad for some reason and I was lucky enough to overhear them doing it. These people took my property without my permission and under unjust circumstances and everytime I come into contact with these people they never do there job fairly, for some reason they always tend to make things worse instead of better. These people will shake your hand, they will smile at you, they will pretend to be fair, they will pretend to be your friend, they will tell you to have a nice day and then they will go behind your back and maliciously attack you, slander you, try to turn you into a monster, unlawfully arrest you, obstruct justice, abuse their power, murder you and say it was self defense, they'll say they feared for their lives, but what really happened was they maliciously murdered you. They will convict you of crimes you didn't commit, they will put innocent people on death row and execute them and they don't even give a shit, they'll put you in prison and let people rape you and they say it never happened, they'll say they didn't see it, they'll say the cameras were down,they'll say they wouldn't of let it happen, they'll call you a liar, they'll say your just trying to cause trouble, they'll try to cover all these things up, but the truth is all of these things actually happened and the truth is, is that all of these cops, judges, lawyers, politicians, probation officers, parole officers, correction officers, military officials, media officials, immigration officers, FBI, the entire government and most of its citizens are all corrupt murderers, criminals, and they get away with it because they got the whole system wired in their favor. They cover for each other's misconduct and that's why these murderers running our government keep getting away with all the evil things they do.

"Our Governor Sir, hardly does any day pass in Nigeria, without a report of a massacre of Nigerians by Nigerians or at least, coordinated by Nigerians. Hardly does a day pass, without the report of a major violent crime committed against Nigerians by Nigerians. Hardly does a day pass, without the story of how large sums of money are stolen by Nigerians who are in positions of trust. The revelations at the various probes by the National Assembly are heart breaking as billions of Naira meant for the improvement in the welfare and condition of living of ordinary Nigerians are brazenly stolen by those who they are entrusted in their care. All these are examples of violence against the people of Nigeria. The killings and maiming of Nigerians, whether by Boko Haram, Militants, cult groups, kidnappers, armed robbers, misguided youths, political thugs and other forms of societal vices by deviant groups under whatever guise, are all examples of direct violence. There is also structural violence, which is the violence that does not hurt or kill through fists or guns or bombs, but through social structures that produce poverty, death and enormous suffering such as: corruption, injustice and bad governance. The truth is that, no one will be able to properly address the problems of direct violence especially, those with ideological inclination without understanding the relationship between direct violence and structural violence. For instance, take a hypothetical example of a man who loses his land or fishing port to oil /gas exploitation because of unjust laws. His son loses her mother because of poverty and crumbling social infrastructure in the Niger Delta, his daughter cannot further her education because the surviving parent is poor. Yet, they live closer oil pipelines When she manages to go to school through community effort. She is told that there is no job for her. She becomes unemployed and frustrated. The community also becomes frustrated, and unable to sponsor others like her. They become abandoned and trapped in the heinous poverty circle while their God-given resources are carted away and used to fund a system of fiscal federalism that is a misnomer and unbecoming of any true federation. The fund is used to pay for the construction of the expensive city of Abuja, fund the huge corruption that we read daily in the newspapers, finance expatriate workers in the Oil and Gas Industry who enjoy highest condition of service, incomparable to any of their equivalent in the world, fund one of the most expensive National Assemblies in the world and provide for the lavish and hedonistic lifestyle of the privileged few Nigerians . Our Governor Sir, you will agree with us that hunger, neglect, frustration and deprivation of this magnitude IN THE MIDST OF PLENTY is a serious form of violence, capable of pushing ( indeed has pushed) the man and his community into direct violence. The story is also not different in Northern Nigeria, where years of deprivation, neglect, corruption and misrule by the ruling elites have led to the emergence and establishment of dynasties of poverty in the form of ‘Almajiris’, and now we all cry over the terror in the land, occasioned by the ‘Boko Haram’ insurgence. Let me quickly add that I am not by any chance providing any justification for criminal activities, I am only showing how one crime, for example corruption, leads to another. For example, the killings by ‘Boko Haram’ or militant/cult groups in the Niger Delta. This analysis in my view, is important if we must address the unacceptable violence, insecurity and wanton killings in Nigeria that is fast becoming a way of life in our beloved country." Exerpt from AN ADDRESS PRESENTED BY COMRADE HYGINUS CHIKA ONUEGBU (JP, FCA) STATE CHAIRMAN TRADE UNION CONGRESS OF NIGERIA (TUC) RIVERS STATE COUNCIL ON THE OCCASION OF 2012 MAY DAY CELEBRATION IN RIVERS STATE NIGERIA.
