Smeggy Smurf: humanshrapnel: Smeggy Smurf: /ask me about my pig proof front door design. 100% guaranteed to stop any no-knock raiding asshole in his tracks.This is me asking....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
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.
Fiction Fan: All you idiots complaining about the policeBut who will you want there if you are robbed, shot, mugged, in a car accident?Morons.
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.
Empty H: Ah, thank you. Apparently I haven't gotten enough sleep today
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?
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//your freedom actually does depend on it

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.
