To Serve and Protect

To serve and protect Any person with an intellect can see that to serve and protect you must serve and protect and not beat and neglect I’ve seen police that made people hit the deck for the visual effect; they were so joyful they became erect and pumped their pecks They’re everywhere from here to there and they drive off fear whether close or near and gloat about it peer to peer Police are far and in between as drug dealers are just around the bend But The pigs rather evoke emotion from the common being Not old enough o drink but old enough to think So, who is being served and protected? 5 0 takes people’s rights and neglect em’; When asked about it, they take the questions and deflect em’ I have the right to remain silent but they keep asking questions and saying I’m going to learn my lesson Anything I say can and will be used against me because they still goin’ beat on me but my pride maximized x3 because the man in me won’t let me be a victim of the police I have the right to an attorney, but all he gone do is screw me and say plea and that ain’t me; doing time gleefully is not for me to do out of stupidity If I can’t afford an attorney one will be provided for me because their view is one- sided and they want it to say it was me without trying it Come on and read me my rights because you already took my god-given rights and shackled them out of sight never to be seen again by my eyes My rights have been took even rooked and shook by the hook by the crooks from the police department of the county of Cook in the land the white took by taking the Natives and boot em’ What else could I expect from the people who are suppose… To serve and protect
