Egyptian origins - Salt Lake City, UT
Sept. 1, 2017 7:06 a.m.Unfortunately this is not an isolated incidence. Many of you reading this article most likely know of another example of police abuse authority right here in Utah first hand or second hand by someone close to you. We trust our police to protect us from criminals, but we have learned by sad experience that it is the nature and disposition of almost all mankind that as soon as they get a little authority as they suppose they begin to exercise corrupt dominion. When police turn on the people they are supposed to protect, no one is safe. President Benson of the LDS Church gave warning to embrace the Constitution of the United States and choose good leaders. We as a whole have not headed that warning. We have the right to life, liberty, and property; we have the right to a speedy trial by a jury of our peers; we have the right to receive a warrant of arrest; we have the right in regards to Miranda; etc. But look instead at how our system is run. It is a complete contradiction to the US Constitution and our "guaranteed" rights. And our police and government leaders continue to act with impunity. Is there nothing that can and will be done to stop this oppression of the people?
