Cops call it “command presence.” It’s called being a fucking asshole. Don’t show any emotion, then yell, wave your gun around, stick it in someone’s face, be a control-freak. Only MY safety matters.
Of course, no one is a cop 24 hours per day. The “cop-face” is only put on for 8 hours. They aren’t like that in the locker room, or bar, or their living room. The public doesn’t see this side. Cops are the beer-drinkers and the football-watchers.
Script 1: SWAT Breach of a House
“POLICE! Get on the ground NOW! Comply, comply! Stop resisting! Get on the FUCKING floor!!!”
Script 2: Armed Robbery at a Bank
“FREEZE! This is a STICKUP! NOBODY move. Get on the fucking floor! Don’t look at me you fuck!”
The Process: Start off by …..……scaring them. Yell and scream, hold a gun. You take total control. For “your own safety.” If someone disobeys, they get fucked up or shot. You tell them EXACTLY what to do and when to do it. Then, only relax when they have been completely restrained, either by ducktape or cuffs. That’s how to be a cop, or a criminal, in America.
If you make the threat big enough, you often don’t have to use violence. But if the threat doesn’t work, you MUST use violence. Cops and cons both.
There’s nothing more real than pain and death. Violence is the solution cops, criminals and the USG all turn to. It’s the only solution – when nothing else is real anymore.
