A variation of the police state where a police force acts more as bullies than police. A typical bully will pick on people that he/she knows to have no problem picking on without fear of retaliation but shying away from "someone your own size." In a bully state, police officers have absolutely no trouble cracking down on truly trivial matters, especially "victimless crimes" such as: 90% of misdemeanors (MIPs, pissing in public, use of mild drugs, "open containers"), more than half of all traffic violations (speeding within the 5-10mph "cushion", running a yellow light, etc), however when it comes to matters truly relevant or life endangering, they hesitate to crack down or have a "protocol" involving a heavy bureaucracy that makes it not worth it
my house gets taken over by Crips but the police don't do jack shit! I drive with an empty beer bottle in my trunk left there by my MOM because it fell out of the bag of bottle deposit bottles? I get a fucking misdemeanor! This is no police state, it's a fucking BULLY state!
