Entire Police Force in Colorado Quits, Abandoning Their Posts … Town Doesn’t Descend into Chaos

police_stateBy Matt Agorist

Without giving any reason whatsoever, the entire Green Mountain Police department in Colorado has quit. 

The chief of police announced his resignation on Tuesday and he was quickly followed by all the other officers. It has now been 4 days and, remarkably, the town of Green Mountain Falls does not look like a scene out of Mad Max.

“In an election year there’s always some people who choose to stay and some people who choose to go, and I think that happens at every level of government,” Green Mountain Falls Mayor Jane Newberry said.

Despite giving no reason, it is likely that the department disagreed with the local politics and reacted by abandoning their duty as public servants — thereby illustrating the irrelevance of their job in the first place.

Unfortunately, the town of Green Mountain Falls will likely seek out a new group of armed enforcers to ticket them for petty offenses, but in the meantime, this is a perfect example of how societies can function peacefully without the threat of state violence.

The idea that police protect you is a misconception as well, as they will seldom prevent violence. They normally show up after the violence or crime has been committed and then try and find a culprit, or not.

The average response time to a 9-1-1 call is 10 minutes nationwide; for poor areas that time quadruples. In some cases, the dispatchers do not even take the caller seriously and the victim ends up dead, when a crime could have actually been prevented.

The reality is that police act as revenue collectors for the state and solely exist to enforce the law only.

In a perfect world, police would show up prior to a crime and stop it, or at least during a crime, but this is simply not a reality.

Police in America also do not “protect and serve.” If you doubt this claim simply refer to Warren v. District of Columbia, in which the Supreme Court ruled that the police do not have a constitutional duty to protect a person from harm.

Sure, Green Mountain Falls is a small town and the likelihood of a crime wave bursting on to the scenes is rare regardless of police presence. However, we’ve seen similar situations involving millions. At the end of 2014, for example, the NYPD stopped doing its job after the murder of officers Rafael Ramos and Wenjian Liu and something amazing happened — crime went down.

The Post reported that arrests were down 66% in the week following the deaths of officers Rafael Ramos and Wenjian Liu, compared to the same period in 2013.

For certain offenses, the arrest levels are staggeringly low, according to the numbers put out by the Post.

Citations for traffic violations fell by 94 percent, from 10,069 to 587, during that time frame.

Summonses for low-level offenses like public drinking and urination also plunged 94 percent — from 4,831 to 300.

Even parking violations are way down, dropping by 92 percent, from 14,699 to 1,241.

Drug arrests by cops assigned to the NYPD’s Organized Crime Control Bureau — which are part of the overall number — dropped by 84 percent, from 382 to 63.

It wasn’t a slowdown — it was a virtual work stoppage. And, in spite of police not writing tickets for jaywalking, arresting people for marijuana possession, and failing to wear their seatbelts, the city of New York did not descend into chaos either.

  1. LMAO! – Probably the safest town to move to at the moment.

  2. I’ve been saying this for decades.

  3. Ever since Colorado legalized the whackybacky some real strangeness has emerged. In this case it has been a positive event.

  4. Now that the cops aren’t putting people in cages for using cannabis, there is nothing left for them to do all day, so they just went home. Progress!

      So true. I wish we had an entire world without police to live in. There really is no need to let the violent losers dominate us any longer. I recommend market alternatives as far as defense goes, and crimes involving no victim, since they are non-existent, shouldn’t be prevented.

      • Yay Julian! it’s a rare day when I hear someone proclaim it’s time to stop letting the violent losers (I call them the LCD- Lowest Common Denominators) rule humanity. We received this limiting program usually in the first week of school, where as soon as someone screws up they punish everyone, and thus society is formed. It’s time to put our collective foot down and say, “No more.” Not many people are awake to the idea of sovereignty and that they can actually declare it for themselves, so keep spreading it around.

    “Many people seem to think that if they can make a little more money along some particular line, then that line is good, even though it is obvious to them that their money is being made at the cost of loss to the community as a whole. They think, ‘We do not care about the community as a whole: we care only for our individual gain.’ But they forget that they are part of the community, and if they enjoy and profit by something which is evil for the whole, certainly they themselves will suffer by that. They make a little more money, perhaps, but the price of living goes up to such a degree that that little more money is not of much use to them.”

    “People are blindly following self-interest, and they lack the wideness of view that would show them the great fact that what is evil for the whole can never really be good for any individual in that whole.”

    • Following self-interest manifests in cognition of “the great fact that what is evil for the whole can never really be good for any individual in that whole.” Remaining with the herd keeps one ignorant of the tyranny which occurs when blindly following those with evil intent.

    The Roman Empire started to go into meltdown when the Roman Legionnaires and the Praetorian Guards began to walk out on their contracts. Most of them were mercenaries who could have cared less about The Empire. Among other things they were pissed off at getting paid with “clipped” (devalued) coins. Most people who enlist in the Armed Forces or in Law Enforcement (“force” is the root word) are in it for the benefits and early retirement. Once these perks dwindle or are deemed inadequate it’ll be hasta la vista to these goons. Then what?

    • Really? That’s one interpretation of events. Not a logically consistent one though. The Roman Empire started to go into meltdown due to many considerations. One of which was the devaluation of the currency due to the excesses and greed of the leaders. One was sheer size of the empire. One was the inevitable backlash against occupying forces. One was the debauch of Rome itself. The citizens of the city became as fat, lazy, worthless, and unprincipled as most Americans today.

      My point: order from force will not last long. Order must be self-sustaining. In other words, order must come from everyone. Not in the form of everyone enforcing upon others, but in the form of everyone enforcing upon themselves. Order must arise from individuals if it is to be sustained. Order cannot be forced upon anyone indefinitely.

    Same thing happened in SC not long ago – county sheriff took over the area – no loss. Need more ‘citizen policing’ until ‘professional policing’ raises it’s standards much higher than it is now. Things are getting so bad in many areas that ‘vigilantism’ may be the only solution as traitors and enemy alien fifth columnists rely on ‘professional policing’ to assist them in maintaining power.

    • I’m glad you put vigilantism in quotes, but still, it is a vilified term for one protecting one’s own rights and property on one’s own. Of course your rulers will create a vilified term for this, in the same way that “anarchy” was vilified. Your rulers can’t have you thinking that you don’t need them, and that, in fact, you’d be much better off without them.

    Maybe they have been told they will have to shoot Americans that believe in the constitution, if they demonstrate against the government.

    KUDOS to the town – I hope they do not re-instate a police force. Police exist to protect the silver spoon crowd and bust the chops of the commoner.
    Family clans would appear and keep order.
    This is the similar to removing stop lights – folks will slow down and let the first car through then the next in an orderly fashion.

    GOOD for the TOWNSHIP! There are a couple of GOOD sheriff’s in Arizona I hear.

    Maybe the police force is just sick and tired of all the dumbed down potheads living there. Colorado is going to look like Californication in another ten years.

      Dumbed down from the lighter butane maybe, but not from the cannabis. I love to learn and contemplate when high, but never when drunk…

    • Cannabis doesn’t dumb people down. Spouting your Reefer Madness Mentality based on lies you heard 50 years ago that have been proven false, that’s dumbed down.

        Oh my OldeSoul, fifty years ago, before you put that reefer to your lips you were a different person. Don’t you sometimes wonder what that would have been like? Many friends have told me they wish they had never started. The money, the trouble and the heartache this substance has caused them is undeniable. Its obvious its been a long time for you, but please don’t make this poison available to my grandchildren. And I think the only person that is lying is you , to your self. Clean your self up and face reality. I know its scary but I believe you can do it. Good luck……

        • Hahahaha… that’s quite a redolent pile of wildly false assumption you laid out there, Mrs. Brainiac. It figures you would have a bunch of born again potheads for friends though.

      ……..the water is gonna run out in Cali long before that. There will be 40,000,000 Californians and their illegal shadow moving into the rest of the nation’s neighborhoods.

  13. The police may not have a Constitutional duty to protect civilians from harm but they most certainly have a contractual duty to do so!

  14. Police with their outdated Military equipment bought from Homeland Security realised that everyone will know that they are the Biggest Gang and could no longer hide in plain view.

    650 people need FIVE cops? Our little town of 650 went 8 mo. without ANY cop. Now we have one. One too many. As ICE came in & busted the wetbacks. DEA came in & busted the dopers. What do we need this guy for?

  16. Wiki says Green Mountain Falls CO, has a 2010 population of 640. Guess Andy and Barnie Fife had all they could take?

    Perhaps they woke up to the fraud of their jobs
    Google legal name fraud

  18. Yeah Just Google Legal Name Fraud and see why they are all quitting. Oh and see the Apostolic Letter Issued Motu Proprio On the Jurisdiction of Judicial Authorities of Vatican City State in Criminal Matters (11 July 2013) Francis. And Also the 2013 letter from Pope Francis telling all bar card holder that it was revoked… ASK QUESTIONS doppeys… it’s illegal to use a legal name or even hide behind a badge and also impersonating an officer.

  20. In the Magna Carta (The ‘Great Letter’) of 800 years ago, ‘crime’ was correctly defined as “injury or loss to person or property”. Peace Officers were therefore tasked with protecting people and property, while keeping the peace. “Policy officers” (AKA, “police”), on the other hand, are not. Instead, they generate revenue by enforcing arbitrary and ridiculous “Codes” and “Statutes” masquerading as Common Law. They are loyal to their Department and one another, not you. Remove the threat of government force and you don’t have chaos, but community. The biggest lie government would have us believe is that they are indispensable to our well-being.

  21. The police are sure to find a lesson here – don’t need ya. The rise of the family clan will be efficient and solid enough to keep each other from harming one another.
    The rainbow folks have temporary councils to decide who done it and dish out punishment.
    BTW: garndmaAmerica – please stop attacking mj – It’s obvious you have never tried it and your head is filled with government propaganda. there are several books on the subject.
    Please move to Colorado and imbibe for the health of it whilst watching fabulous sunsets with your friends.

  22. Don’t fear the

  23. When you think of it, when do you call the police for help? For me, very rarely, if ever. 98% of the time it’s AFTER something happened. AFTER you got ripped-off. AFTER you got the schit beat out of you. So this is NO surprise. They’re basically useless. As far as a “police presence” as a deterrent, I NEVER see them anywhere. I lived in a big US city, down town proper, for 3 years in a “blue” state. The ONLY time I ever saw uniform police was when there was the democratic convention held a block away. On the corner of my street were 6-8 pigs carrying machine guns! Talk about over-the-top.

  24. The “crime rate” drastically dropped while there were no police officers working to make the arrest!?!
    This is the stupidest thing I’ve ever read…No Cops = No Arrest = No Crime Rate…DUH!!!

    • You’re missing the point. The focus was that the city did not descend into chaos because the cops weren’t busting people for stupid sht. If the police would just focus on investigating and arresting people who do crimes (actual crimes against other people) not made up crimes like drugs that hurts no one but the user. They need to only go after those who do harm like thieves, gangs and murderers…

  25. You say crime went down. Is that based on The Post reporting the 66% decrease on arrests during the police not doing their jobs the week following the deaths of the officers? Obviously arrests will go down if cops stop doing their jobs but this doesn’t mean crime amount has changed.
