Understanding Peace Officer
vs. Law Enforcement Officer
By Ron Branson National J.A.I.L. CIC
Not long ago all law enforcement officers were referred to as Peace Officers, but a transition has slowly set in, in which now all peace officers have become known as Law Enforcement Officers. Is this just semantics in title, or is there really a difference? That is the subject of this addition to my Understanding series by Ron Branson on various items of public service.
To start out, we note that one title contains the word Peace, and the other Enforcement. Do these two titles denote the same thing, or is there a difference? Most any grade school graduate can understand them to be two different things. But to the naked eye, one might argue that both wear a uniform, have a badge, and carry a gun, and therefore are one and the same.
The distinction is not one of appearance, but rather one of objective. In all of society life is competition, and everything works from three basic positions: A versus B mediated by C, the latter of which is a neutral position that may be called a mediator, an arbitrator, a referee, an umpire, or a judge. Everyone in the competitive society of life is either a player, or a neutral participant. While the competition of A and B could also include the competition of D, E, and F, there can be only one C who absolutely must have no interest in the outcome between A, B, D, E, and F. Once C manifests an interest in the competition between A, B, D, E, and F, he automatically forfeits his position as a neutral participant, and becomes a player in the competion.
Every game of sport provides an excellent illustration of the game of life. No judge in an Olympian race can enter himself into the race as a candidate. The moment he does, he forfeits his neutral position as judge because he now has an interest in the outcome.
This illustrates why there can exist no such thing as a government interest because the moment government obtains an interest in the outcome, it ceases to be government and becomes a contestant in the competitive world in which someone else must necessarily step up to assume the role of government. Government must absolutely be neutral, or it ceases to be government!
That is a profound statement I have just made because the courts in America have recognized an overriding governmental interest, U.S. v. Lee, 102 S. Ct. 1051 (1982), and Bowen v. Roy, 476 U.S. 693 (1986), both dealing with the mandatory numbering of all Americans to support the Social Security Administration. However, any true-thinking person can quickly see that by the very principles of nature itself, there cannot exist a governmental interest at all, much less an overriding one. Once the existence of such a principle is introduced, there can be no end, for it works like the camels nose under your tent; you will soon be sleeping with the camel, or worse yet, be crowded out totally from under the tent, for everything will eventually be done to accomplish an overriding governmental interest!
With this as a background, let me explain the distinction between a Peace Officer, and a Law Enforcement Officer. The objective of a peace officer is peace, nothing more. He has no interest in the cause of A over B, but seeks only peace, which benefits A, B, D, E, and F. In fact, the whole purpose for all government in society is justice which results in peace. Peace is not possible where there is no justice. Said another way, where there is no justice, there can be no peace; and where there is no peace, you can count on the fact that it is because there is no justice. When a peace officer arrives on the scene, his objective is to separate the disputing factors and quell the tension --whether it be a fight between a husband and wife, or feuding neighbors. He has no inherent interest in arresting anyone upon arrival at the scene. Such pursuit of peace is a rewarding objective. The Bible tells us, Blessed are the peacemakers. Matt. 5:9.
So now let us discuss a Law Enforcement Officer. His interest, as his title indicates, is enforcing the law. Now we have already stated that the objective of all government must be the establishment of peace through justice. So the question now turns to whether law enforcements only interest is seeking peace. I state emphatically, NO! Let me again illustrate with a sports game baseball.
Baseball, as with all sports, has rules. The purpose of those rules, which we might here call laws, are made to assure that everyone plays on a level playing field and thus keeps the peace. One batter cannot be granted five strikes while another is limited to two. All rules must contribute to the objective of obtaining peace between the competing sides. Obviously, if one side or the other cannot agree as to what the rules are, or to abide by them for the benefit of both sides, there can be no peace, i.e., no game can possibly be played. This natural principle of law is true even where the opponents are fighting in a ring. The objective of all rules/laws must be peace!
Applying this law of nature to all rules and all laws governing society, let us consider the incidents where the rule or the laws objective is not peace. We accept that the umpire is the decision-maker in baseball; and both sides agree to honor his judgment, whether or not they agree with any particular play. Conceptually, both sides agree that the umpire is trying to keep the peace by being honest and just in calling each and every play, and is not motivated by a personal interest in the outcome, such as a bet on the game.
Now suppose the umpire, pursuant to the authority and permission of the Baseball Commission, imposes a fine against every player in the game for each strike in the amount of $10, (an infraction,) and $100 (a misdemeanor) for each out, and finally $1000 (a felony) for each accumulation of 10 strikes. The laws/rules provide that the Baseball Commission receives 90% of the proceeds, and the umpire 10%. It is declared perfectly legal, and such practice is endorsed by the courts see, here it is, pointing to the published opinion of United Baseball Players v. Baseball Commission, 666 U.S. 911, (2069). Now the enforcement of this rule/law is enforceable; and the Commission is within its right to pursue the players for failure to pay this fee/fine, and it is authorized to send forth law enforcement officers with badges and guns to collect this fee or throw the players in jail.
What has happened is, while this enforcement is perfectly legal, it has violated the fundamental laws of nature: that all laws must be for the purpose of bringing about peace through justice. Imposing a fine upon the players in a baseball game is neither a pursuit of justice nor peace, but rather the pursuit of the Commissions own interest --that of collecting fines. And since collecting fines is the Commissions interest, it then follows that their next step is maximizing those fines, i.e, increasing the numbers and amounts of the fines. Therefore, the neutral umpire, who has no interest in the outcome, starts interpreting more questionable calls in favor of strikes, the Baseball Commissioners, and his own 10% commission. Again I say, show me an umpire that has a little bit of interest in the outcome of a game, and I will show you a man that under any natural standard is disqualified as an umpire.
A Law Enforcement Officer is contending for the interest of those who hire him to enforce their laws/rules having nothing to do with peace or justice, only with profits for those who have sent him. The objective is greed-oriented.
The term law enforcement officer connotates the mentality of a fascist police state that has no interest in peacejust sheer obedience to the interests of the authority that pays him, i.e., he gets a cut of the profits of tyranny. There is no difference in this scenario than a driver of a get-away car receiving part of the profits of a bank robbery when splitting up the booty; except the former is a legal heist, while the latter an illegal one. The former is accomplished with an official uniform and badge, while the latter with a mask and bag.
By the very laws of nature, there cannot exist a Law Enforcement Officer, for if such were true, then we could all make ourselves law enforcement officers, for life itself must be a level playing field for all competive interests. Life is not supposed to be government. It is supposed to be about society getting along peaceably with each other as much as is possible; and society needs only so much government as is necessary to bring about that objective, Government, even in its best state, is but a necessary evil; in its worst state, an intolerable one.
-- Thomas Paine
So now we know why the foreign power, under color of government, has purposely designed the extermination of every reference to peace officers to metamorphose them into law enforcement officers. The objective is designed to subjugate the American People to obedience to an all-powerful, ever-expanding law enforcement police state. According to the foreign power, there can never be enough law enforcement officers the more, the better! And if there arent enough laws for these law enforcement officers to enforce, do not worry because the foreign power will surely pass more.
Only by judicial accountability to the People through J.A.I.L. will their plans be thwarted!
