    It’s all going to come down to who really has faith in the system anymore.. They have failed us miserably why should we listen to the police I don’t believe in our government there for I don’t believe in our so called “Police”.. The Eagle has fallen and the squares of the world meaning goody to shoes type of people will be left saying wTf just happened.. Live ur own life don’t follow these laws it’s all a hoax. The sooner people realize we need a new goverment the better chance of seeing some actual change will take place.
