MayoSlather: The trick to putting power in the right hands is to find the people that don't actually want it.
Bathia_Mapes: Kyoowashugi: I hate the phraseology. Police are by definition civilians, no?No, they are not civilians.

MNguy: Aulus: Cucullen: There is a reason why Rome forbade uniformed soldiers within its walls. And a reason the Roman Republic became the Roman Empire when Augustus marched his army through the gates.Conveniently forgetting Marius, Sulla and Caesar, not to mention that there was no such thing as a "uniformed soldier" in Rome of that time.I think you're missing the point. We don't require uniformed overlords.
MNguy: cameroncrazy1984: MNguy: Bathia_Mapes: Kyoowashugi: I hate the phraseology. Police are by definition civilians, no?No, they are not civilians.Yes, they are.From wiki:In US parlance, a civilian is also considered one not on active duty in the armed services or not on a police or firefighting force.I guess it's just my personal hangup then. But not active duty = civie.
