Tatsuma: ShawnDoc: Hey man, this isn't Nazi Germany. Supreme Court says I don't have to carry ID on me. So fark you. I'm gonna go where I want, when I want, and if I don't want to carry ID, that's my business. Broski.

Please please please take a webcam with you, put on a hoodie and a backpack, walk up to cops and refuse to identify yourself and scream about your rights

Well, if I tried that, I'd get a beatdown.

vento: I almost always have a hoodie on, and my normal every day bag is a backpack. A stuffed animal backpack, but still, a backpack. They might just be doing normal things.

And I would hope that today of all days, you would be intelligent enough to stay in the house. And if you do have to go outside, you would dress as opposite of this guy as possible - meaning no hoodie and no backpack. There have been a lot of clueless idiots wasting a lot of resources.


Well, I'm also a girl with long, red hair for what that's worth. But if I had to go somewhere, odds are I would have a hoodie on. I have one on right now.

That said, I probably would stay inside if there was a manhunt for a terrorist going on in my town. You'd think most people would, but we don't know why other people would leave the house. Maybe some guy's mother was sick across town, he should stay at home and tell her to shove it? I don't think so.

Wow, the cops nowadays are SO much more high tech then when I was a kid. Back then, if they encountered a locked door, they had to call in help.

Bunny Deville: muck4doo: Friends coming out and saying what a great guy he is.

A friend of mine was murdered a few years ago. The guy that killed him was an obvious whacko that everyone else in our group thought it wasokay to hang out with... except me, I literally moved away just to get away from this dude. When he killed our friend, everyone was all farking surprised about it. I had to remind them that the guy tore apart a cat, almost shot another friend, and had held a gun that he thought was loaded at our friend's head before and pulled the trigger.

Denial ain't just a river in Egypt.


But he was so sweet and nice when he wasn't having a psychotic episode.

Rent Party: In the United States, the military is prohibited by law from being used as law enforcement. And despite how farked up things are in Boston right now, most Americans want it that way.


Exactly.

As a heads-up for non-US farkers, in this country we have a very old piece of legislation in this country called the Posse Comitatus Act.  It says that the military cannot enforce the law or be directly involved with civilian law enforcement.

There are very few exceptions.  Note, one big exception is the National Guard, which exists as a dual State/Federal entity, and when in a State role (as the modern version of the old State Militias) it can enforce the law with the approval of the State Governor.  This virtually never happens for routine policing, and is generally only used for disaster relief (but on rare occasion is used for riot control, but this is NOT a common use of the NG).

Those Blackhawks that have been flying around over Boston?  Almost certainly MA National Guard.  I've heard there are several companies of MP's from the Massachusetts NG in the area as well.

Another exception is the US Coast Guard, which the act does not apply to, since the USCG has a law enforcement role at sea.

I'm gonna get out of here. What i don't understand is how evil people sacrifice our young people for their ideals. Kids who haven't had time to weigh things out in their own minds. We do it today, and we have done it for thousands of years. The elders make the cause for death and murder, then make the young carry it out while keeping themselves out of the battle.

Grobbley: And every single time, people get mad.  If it were just "stupid bullshiat" why not simply dismiss it as such and move on?  Do you know how much "stupid bullshiat" gets posted and reposted on FARK every single day?  Generally people don't get so pissed off about it.  The emotional responses to this "stupid bullshiat" would indicate to me that they feel their view of reality is threatened by it.  People don't want to face the potential of their reality being wrong, so anything that conflicts with their reality is immediately a threat to be attacked or suppressed, regardless of how absurd it is.

/I don't personally believe any of the shiat from the image, but I do find the responses to be humorous and illuminating


Oh, so you're just trolling - posting something you don't believe because you enjoy making people mad.

The faux-psychology explanation is your own attempt to justify your trolling. It's more likely people get mad because they know exactly what you're doing.

Reminder - 45 Senators just voted to let Dzhokhar Tsarnaev buy weapons at gun shows w/no inconvenient background checks.

LAST TIME, people: Background checks are not permission, they are rejection.  Put another way: a background check would not stop an immigrant with a state-provided ID, but a law-abiding citizen named John Wilkes Booth would be told to wait 7 days while they look into it further.

There's nothing WRONG with a background check, but it's not magic, either.  It's still not enough to stop a first-time buyer with no criminal record who never reported the side-effects of a recent Cymbalta prescription.

According to the website spotcrime.com, Tamerlan was arrested for domestic violence in July 2009 after assaulting his girlfriend.

Okay, presuming it resulted in a conviction, that would probably prevent him from passing a background check. Now how about his brother?

His NINETEEN year old brother?

Age 18 for a long gun in Massachusetts.

Is that what he has?

Per the cops last night, yes. Until they killed a cop and took his gun.

I guess we'll find out where he got it.


Yep. But last week, he was just a guy. He could have bought it legally in Massachusetts with a full background check. So the "background check would have stopped this" claim is dead on arrival, not to mention they have homemade bombs.

CygnusDarius: Well, if I tried that, I'd get a beatdown.


... that's the point. It's a real teenage 'FARK U, DAD' mentality to think that in the middle of a huge manhunt for a man with explosives and assault rifles ready to kill anyone in his path that to tell people to stay indoors and if they have to go out, to carry ID on them is somewhat reminiscent of Nazi Germany.
 
2013-04-19 03:43:15 PM  

Abzzstain: So the police get a free pass to barge in without a search warrant and toss every farking house in Boston if they want. If you're not home they'll let themselves in.

I realize they've got to find the guy, but this seems like overkill and not exactly constitutional. I suspect police all over the country will be using this convenient tactic now whenever there's a fugitive.



If they are searching house to house, they knock on the door and ask to search.  The people are allowing it.  The cop casually walks through your house just to see if there is someone there.  Had that happen a couple times.  They spend all of like 2 minutes in your house.  Not unconstitutional and they don't care about jack shiat except the person they are looking for.  The first time it happened I was at my neighbors and his roommate was smoking a bowel when they went through.  Not a word about it.

No more stories about how these two were "good kids" or how it's "so shocking" that these "peaceful" young men could commit such a strange act. There's no longer any ambiguity. These are two more people poisoned by their religion to commit the exact kind of evil that is consistent with the teachings of their holy text. They grew to hate this country because of our tolerance of homosexuality and female sexuality. They terrorized us as a favor, to scare us onto a path of righteousness that they believed would point us toward salvation. This is your brain on Islam.
