Lately, they've been deploying SWAT teams to raid adult book stores and theaters....

Because, really, who wants to take a chance that some pervert might start spraying the police. amiright?

You can't afford it.  It's only for rich home builders with eccentric tastes.  But it damned well will scoff at even a .50

/incorporated millibar and other exotic materials


....it's giant bribes to the police, isn't it?

Astorix: That's one of the reasons why I am glad to call Europe home.

I'm glad I call Canada home. I hear the "ssssssssssss" of the lit fuse.


Yeah, but both of you will likely never go broke, loose your house and retirement due to medical bills, so you can never truly know what freedom really tastes like.  I would feel sorry for you, but I can't because empathy is socialist.

Fiction Fan: All you idiots complaining about the police

But who will you want there if you are robbed, shot, mugged, in a car accident?


Morons.


"Thank you for calling 911.  We're sorry, all our officers are raiding a Saturday poker night in Fred's rumpus room.  We will respond to your emergency in the order your call was received.  Your call is important to us, so stay on the line to take this short survey for quality purposes."

Kozmopoliskepticalopsis: Fark It: Kozmopoliskepticalopsis: I'll bet a large percentage of cops are right-wing lunatics of one sort or another.

They're statists whose politics are irrelevant to the problem at hand, the dismissal of these tactics by partisan lemmings like you, something the author went to great pains to highlight if you had bothered reading the whole article.  Part of the problem is exactly what you're doing, ascribing a certain political ideology to these horrible abuses in order to insulate your own.

I did read the article and your objections to my comments are irrelevant.

Anyone who worships guns, order, compliance, power and authority is a right-wing lunatic in my book.  If they wear uniforms, even more so.


You DO realize you just described DHS acting under Obama's authority and control, don't you?

We can thank the totally fruitless War on Drugs for the erosion of the 4th amendment and the militarization of the nation's cops.

I hope Nixon and Reagan are roasting in the hairy taint of Satan.

/the most reliable way to NOT get my vote is to put "tough on crime" bullshiat on your campaign mailers.  They're wasting tax dollars and eroding the public trust.

Empty H: Let me see if I understand this. Some off duty cop overheard some friends betting a few bucks on a sports game. This off duty cop takes it upon himself to spend the next few months working the guy to get him to bet more and more. The cop works him up to the legal amount that can be punishable, goes to arrest him, then shoots him and blames it on not having enough sleep.

Was there seriously nothing he could have spent those months doing that would have been more productive?


What?

Like investigate crimes that have already taken place?

You watch too much TV. That would mean expecting a cop to do the job he was hired to do.

Tatterdemalian: Nobody is going to care enough to take effective action until we elect a Republican president. The closest we'll get to taking action will be telling people they are risking their lives making casual bets among friends and co-workers. Any further investigation will be branded conspiracy theory, and probably racist too.

/so vote Republican

I watched Dick Cheney phone into Fox News to lend support to President Obama in the Snowden affair. It was like I got sucked into an episode of the Twilight Zone.

All cops are heroes, citizen.  The only people who question the police are (right-wing lunatics/Occupy anarchists).  Remember 9/11!

man, I really wish I could move somewhere the cops can only beat you with billy clubs and not shoot you, you know, one of the backwards commie pinko nanny-states like the United Kingdom or Norway.

O'Neal, an aspiring lawman, had been made an "honorary deputy" with the department. Though he had no training as a SWAT officer, Shaq apparently had gone on several such raids with other police departments around the country. The thrill of bringing an untrained celebrity along apparently trumped the requirement that SWAT teams be staffed only with the most elite, most highly qualified and best-trained cops.

nmemkha: It doesn't matter. Americans have no qualms about living in a police state so long as they can maintain the illusion they are "free".

Tragically, the illusion is wearing thin these days, but never underestimate an American's ability to be a self-delusional apologetic hypocrite.
