Description
We've noticed a rash of bad cop/worse cop stories in the news as of late..... never in a free society should the public have to live in fear of their police force who have been sworn "to serve and protect" them.... yet we do....and for good reason.... unwarranted search and seizure.... invasion of privacy .... tazings.... beatings .... abuse of power.... the militarization of our domestic and supposedly non-military police force....and we are suppose to worship these heroes??
We are 2 shakes from martial law....

Am I saying all cops are bad?? ABSOLUTELY NOT!!!!
I have relatives who are cops and FBI agents.... I live in a town where, at least the ones I know, the police are good people doing a good job.... who are serving and protecting the public.... and bless them for doing a tough and thankless job that needs to be done....

But sadly there are those....all over this country.... who do not meet this benchmark.... I've even had cops tell me that a lot of other officers are nothing more than classic high school bullies who are still acting like Neanderthals via a badge and a gun....

a little Spidey wisdom:
"with great power comes great responsibility"
Thanks Uncle Ben....

In addition, and sadly, there are now memorandums going out to police departments and federal agents telling them to look for people who carry copies of the pocket constitution. According to the memo, if you carry a pocket constitution you are most likely a domestic terrorist.... So if you are a high school student in the US you have to take the constitution test in order to graduate....but don't you dare carry that on you....God forbid you should refresh yourself on the fundamentals on how our country is suppose to work...do a little research for yourself....you won't have to look far to see what is taking place....

And to be clear...WE DO NOT CONDONE VIOLENCE OR TERRORIST ACTS AGAINST ANY GROUP OF PEOPLE DOMESTIC OR FOREIGN..... We believe that blood only begets more blood.... so this song IS NOT a call to pick up your gun and storm the gates....

It is a call for us to peacefully say "NO MORE!!"
Because we do not have to stand by and allow injustice to carry on....we can do better than this.... Our police can do better than this....An enlightened country should admit,learn from and repair our mistakes.... and we should avoid the repeating of such mistakes....

as far as the music is concerned.....this is an in your face rock song.... I've had friends compare it to Army of Anyone, Velvet Revolver and Skid Row lol.... hey at least Skid Row's 2nd record was killer....peace

Lyrics
Arm the thugs and goons who missed academy
Abusing at high noon, piss on democracy

Arresting and professing, forget the constitution
Some patriotic blessing, better look alive

Don't make a sound
They'll gun your babies down
A badge for the clown

Beware the double talk they speak so easily
They're gonna keep us safe while subtracting civil liberties

Arresting and professing, forget the constitution
Some patriotic blessing, better look alive

Don't make a sound
They'll gun your babies down
A badge for the clown

Will no one, Will no one assist the widows son?

They got clearance for the torture
submit and lose that tone
just get them an excuse
witness the Third Reich clone

Hide away what you have seen cause now you are the enemy
Execution without regret convinced that they are heaven sent

Don't make a sound
They'll gun your babies down
A badge for the clown

Don't you think for a single moment that they might be wrong

They'll take your punk ass down

Right on. . .
Lyrics are true--- good message, delivered in a dark, hard rock way. That's good rock.

Reminds me of Alice in Chains (especially the droning vocal harmonies)

Dahaman or Damn! rather!
This is.. pretty awesome! Great message and a good preface to it as well!

This is out of my genre, so cant really give critique but I do indeed dig it!

well ...

Nee naw .. the cop is here! Your busted!! lol ..

.. if it wasn't for the "hot fuzz" in the keywords .. how would I have found this?

Everything is pro done, little grunge in this one- I do hope everyone gets copy of the "calling captain obvious" CD ... and if you haven't, you must hear "heavy polly" IMO.

Well done Ian & Kevin.

Extra rockin
This kicks ass, guys. Yeah, I know some good cops. Having said that, the one's who abuse their authority are the worst kind of criminals. Reminds me of Alice in Chains too, but with a different voice. Excellent work.

Deep
Reminds me of a Deep Purple record I've got, called "Rat Bat Blue." This is well-produced track, with aggressive vocals and in-the-pocket guitars. You guys did not just fall off the turnip truck, that's for sure. Much better quality track than most I hear on MJ.

The vocals especially are pro-quality. Production all around is top-drawer.

And I love that Hammond B-3 organ! Very tasty! Great licks. Very "Green-Eyed Lady".

yeah baby!
great song and love the ending. =) I agree the song is polished and well produced. While I must admit it not m genre any more its very well done and one of the better songs I have heard lately. I came across it from a link that someone posted to their music. I am guessing it was a typo. I'm glad I stumbled upon this song.
