I was an employee of an State agency, who's basic only restraint was that we would determine if any member of public were an danger to themselves or the public.

we could and did ask for "Your Papers" , your ID please. and could "Frisk" them on the spot. women included. We did take people into custody, and take them to be evaluated at a state hospital, to affirm or determine if they were actually a danger as above. More ironic perhaps, is our uniform, were when we not in civilian clothing, was black shirt and pants, and our collar pin was an S.S. for state security. most often we were told to wear street clothing, as we were to infiltrate public events. so, when I told people we were more or less, secret police, they often laughed, and said, they don't exist in America. well, we did exist. and we found it funny, when they formed the department of homeland security. as we were doing that for a long time. but, in the 1980s' the president and white house really got started in telling our leadership, that we should train more in anti-terror aspects. and the military industrial firms, began to send sales people to pitch better radios, and taser and CS / CN gas, and the like.

Now most probably, an insult to the public, was, that the industrial complex felt the sales were not enough. so they got the governor to privatize the prison system. this would open up a lot more public funds for sales. and so the state puppets, legislature, voted in many "New" prisons. and the court went along with this, as we were housing hundreds on the floors. in antique prisons. and to the end of filling the new prisons, the governor ordered us, at state security to empty the state hospitals. we did so. the streets were circled by cars full of pimps, and drug pushers. as this opened up a whole new staffing potential. those whom were too ugly to be pimped out, became drug pushers. and being most were life long mental ill, they felt it was a new way to keep their staff, as not guilty due to mental defect. but, this did not stop the judges from imprisoning most, and many. we saw the handwriting on the wall. and most of the S.S. went on to become corrections officers. and when having done so, we were to see hundreds of former patients, in the cells. those whom had been forced onto the streets with club and sheild. without food stamps or meds. nor any ongoing staff to counsel them, at least in mental health. and the Rich got a whole new means of investment, and the military industrial, new weapons sales. the governor, went on to new job too. he was appointed the job of Attorney General. and went on to make history in a new way.
