OgreMagi: Kahabut: OgreMagi: Kahabut: OgreMagi: I always vote. Unfortunately, the same crooks keep getting re-elected. Probably because of people like you because "they are tough on crime."They don't have a citizen's review board in my town. In Los Angeles, where I am original from, the review board has been subverted by the police and the union, so it is effectively useless.So wait, the democratic process is working as advertised. You just don't represent the majority. Which is exactly what I said in the other thread.Eh. Screw you kiddo. Tyranny of the masses.This isn't a democracy. I thought you said you took a civics class. If you had, you would know this.First, I never said this was a democracy.Second, you vote, other people vote, someone counts, the winner is the one with the most votes.... what do you call that?Representative democracy, aka, a republic.
untaken_name: Radak: untaken_name: Radak: But has a person actually broken a law by saying, "I had a bag of crack in my pocket two weeks ago"?No. However, they have confessed to breaking the law two weeks ago.Er, I misspoke. I should have written has a person broken a law by saying, "I smoked crack two weeks ago", getting back to my question as to whether or not consumption laws exist.How would you smoke crack you weren't in possession of? There's no need for consumption laws because it's impossible to consume drugs without possessing them.
phalamir: Yet. Considering that authorities can lie to you to get evidence, the only smart move is to answer anything even remotely incriminating with "I plead the Fifth". "This is not a criminal proceeding" is to be countered with "(1) And you are able to prove that negative with 100% certainty how?, and (2) I plan to keep it that way."
ThatGuyFromTheInternet: Right. If the students don't want to abide by the school's policy, they can just go elsewhere!
