WHAT IS THIS SITE?
Police State USA is a volunteer, grassroots journalism hub dedicated to exposing the systemic formation of an American police state. A team of contributing authors has been built based on their ability to exhibit professionalism, accuracy, knowledge of the subjects, and passion for the liberty movement.
Our mission is to educate and inform the public about issues that endanger our rights and liberties, and to work to fix them through non-violent means.
A complete paradigm shift will be necessary to save this country’s freedom. A necessary part of this involves a massive information campaign to expose the crimes of the police state and promote freedom-based alternatives. We are part of that information campaign.
This website seeks to cover all aspects of the police state. These include a spiderweb of bad laws, unaddressed corruption, rampant police brutality, the militarization of law enforcement, systematic civil rights infringements, prohibition of non-violent/victimless behaviors, destruction of property rights, outlawing of arbitrary items, invasions of privacy, surveillance & spying, citizen indoctrination & state propaganda, fascist economic policies, aggressive foreign policy, centralization and federalization of government, the rigged political system, the false Left/Right Paradigm, globalism & world government, and more.
WHAT WE ARE NOT
Police State USA does not promote the idea that all police officers are evil. We do not intend to use a broad brush and blindly bash every cop. We do not use popular acronyms like “FTP” and “ACAB.” Our outrage is targeted specifically at individual people and at individual policies that are responsible for corruption and abuse. We recognize that police officers (and all government employees) are only human and corruptible just like anyone else. However, that corruption must not be excused or tolerated.
While we offer some stinging criticisms of the laws and individuals who are supporting the police state, we recognize that there are some honorable, compassionate police officers out there who themselves are fighting corruption from within the system. We value the role of true peace officers in society and we are happy to hear from current and former police officers who want to speak out against the transformation of their profession, and against the blue wall of silence that protects bad officers from being removed from their duties. Police State USA has enlisted the contributions of several former police officers for writing contributions. We support Oath Keepers who refuse to enforce oppressive, unconstitutional laws.

Our “POLICE STATE USA” banner has been been created from a photograph from the September 2008 Republican National Convention in St. Paul, Minnesota. Riot police held a heavy presence around the city and at some points performed aggressive mass-arrests of anyone in their way.
