EVERYTHING Brian Aitken was or had worked for was wiped away one winter afternoon after his mother called the police on him.

Separated from his wife, the entrepreneur and media consultant, now 27, had moved back home to New Jersey from Colorado toward the end of 2008 to be closer to their young son.

In between jobs, his well-oiled life was running ragged, and on Jan. 2, 2009, when his ex canceled his visit with their son, he became distraught, muttered something to his mother, and left his parents' home in Mount Laurel, N.J.

"He said something that scared her, things that a guy will only say to his mom, like . . . 'Life's not worth living anymore,' " said Larry Aitken, Brian's father.

Sue Aitken, a trained social worker, decided to play it safe and called police, but she hung up before the 9-1-1 dispatcher could answer. Police traced the call and showed up anyway, and found two handguns in the trunk of Brian's car. And now Brian, her middle child, a graduate student with no prior criminal record, is serving a seven-year prison sentence for weapons charges.

NEVER, EVER, call the cops for help! Cops and help do not go together! I know of a Phoenix couple that called the cops on their teenaged son who was upset - the kid was dead within the hour. Got it? Don't call'em!

These comments shock me.
I did not think that people were so perceptive.

Zero cooperation. The police are not your friend, the government is your enemy.

"To Serve and Protect" isn't speaking about you unless you are part of the corporate or political agenda being safeguarded.

Never, EVER, ever, ever, EVER trust a cop. No matter how nicey nice they may act they are NOT your friend. They are ENFORCERS for the government first, second, and always. They are trained to try and get your confidence and get you to let down your guard. "Trust Me I'm from the government."
