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.

Actually, representative democracy != republic.  A pure democracy can still be 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.

I went to a lot of concerts in the 70's and 80's and can say without any reservation that you can get high without ever possessing any drug. Even today, at outdoor venues, the smoke can be thick enough to get someone high who doesn't normally partake. OZfest a few years back comes to mind. I felt like a dirty old man looking at 16 y/o topless girls with their boobs painted.

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."

No, much simpler: "Then am I free to go?"  If the answer is no, then you are in effect under arrest.

School district officials declined to provide a copy of the survey to the Daily Herald, saying the district bought the survey from a private company, Multi-Health Systems Inc., and the contents are proprietary business information.

In your public school? How about fark you? Full disclosure.

ThatGuyFromTheInternet: Right. If the students don't want to abide by the school's policy, they can just go elsewhere!

That more or less solidifies my point pretty well.  Thanks.
