There’s a reason you separate military and the police. One fights the enemies of the state. The other serves and protects the people. When the military becomes both, then the enemies of the state tend to become the people.
— That quote comes from Battlestar Galactica’s Commander Adama. He says it in the second episode of the first season of the series, “Water”, written by Ron Moore. That episode is 10 years old.
Life imitating art.
10 years ago, is still post-Patriot Act. Much of the BSG reboot is influenced by the “War on Terror”, Guantanamo, etc. And the militarization of the police in the US started even before that, with military assets being made available to police departments for the “War on Drugs”.
That’s probably a fruity beer.
— My brother, at the gay bar.
It’s like a gaseous type of love.
— Don’t you wish you were here?
