Ector County Cops through History

Bleeping Podcast

By now, you've likely heard about the standoff between Ector County's voluminous SWAT team and the protesters at Big Daddy Zane's bar in Odessa, Texas. Oh and by standoff, I mean the quick arrest of non-violent protesters by police with weapons drawn.

Though we are generally very pro LEO at Another Bleeping Podcast, we have to admit that the stereotype of the donut-stuffed cop pulling some fascistic crap is hard to ignore. It's there and it's been with us for a long time.

Here we can see Lewis Carroll's characters Tweedledee and Tweedledum. The roly-poly little goofs depicted as little soldiers.

One might say it was foretold.

Fast forward to the Eighties where we see the comedy Good Morning Vietnam. A U.S. Military radio station is turned upside down by a lovable yet rebellious non-conformist. The villains are of course the stodgy military types who follow rules and enforce conformity. This brings us to Exhibit B.

​Fat, identical and authoritarian is no way to go through life.
