At least he has been fired.  The motorist will win some big $$$ for having his civil rights violated.  What that cop did was felony extortion.

 Um if fascism were that

 Um if fascism were that widespread to the point of oppression and lack of free speech, anyone could get to the point of fighting back. But the fact that police do get held to account, even if our system still needs much more oversight than it currently has, I am no fan of revenge.

Defending yourself in the moment is understandable. After the fact when someone is contained and arrested, there is no call for retrobution. We have courts for a reason. We can certainly dissagree with the outcomes of verdicts as well. But that would be more an issue of lawmaking and how the system is set up, not the concept of the process itself.

I'm convinced that there are

I'm convinced that there are some really bad cops out there. People who should never be in command of weapons or wear a badge.

I think I mentioned this previously but I was pulled over with a friend coming back from a movie and the cops were douche bags. They pulled their 9mm's and told us that they pulled us over because there was a call for a bank robbery. I laughed because it was 2am in the morning. Needless to say they wrote me for a ticket which I promptly took them to court and they never appeared. The judge told me that he wanted them to show up because he was going to set them straight on the laws.

I agree with this particular thing you've said.

Yes there are most certainly. I think that has more to do with conditions than always being about evil entent. Do not think most cops set out to hurt people. I do think laws allow them to go too far in assuming and using too much force. I don't think currently there is  enough oversight.  I don't think it helps having 300 million guns cops have to worry about. I'd want the best protection and overwhelming force if I had to worry about threats constantly. 

But you in this post just showed that the system does not always side with them. I think from what you just described that judge would have given them what for if they had shown up. 

 

I think I may have mentioned it long ago on this website, back in the early 90s I was driving and came apon a single car accident. It appeared the driver was trying to make a left turn at a T intersection and was going to fast and hit the curb, or telephone pole, didn't see that part. I arrived to see the car with smoke in it, turned out to be the air bags, but I didn't know. Drivers door didn't open so I got the passenger door open and helped him out. I worked at a 7-11 just down the street from this interesection so while assisting him out, I noticed he had an empty booze bottle on the floor of the car, and that he was a county police officer. Emergancy and cops show up, they take my statement. NO, I wasn't some sort of Superman who magically pulled him out without his help. I merely assisted him out. 

I don't remember if it was one month or a few months later, I show up to traffic court, but before his case was called, a coulple of officers I had not seen before came up to me and said "Mr Yada, we won't be needing you". I knew what was going on and wasn't about to stick around. I wish had been brave enough, but I wasnt.

While you can say cooruption does exist, I don't speak as much about conspiracies as much as conditions.

I've wanted to get a 'Blackbox System' for my car. It's cameras, sensors and mics in and around the car. Records every thing you do or say plus it keeps track of the stats of the car in case you are in an accident.

Unfortunately I think it may come more and more to that. Even with forcing body cams on cops, they can still find a way to say "it didn't work". In a perfect world neither the cop or society should have to resort to that, but the police will not police themselves. Or that is to say, never a good idea to let anything go without oversight.

That is the difference between my view on oversight and yours. Yours is based on fear and parinoia and selfishness. Mine is about fostering oversight through trust and verify. You don't give one shit about fostering conditions that would reduce crime and or the feeling to want a gun. You are stuck in a action movie.

 

Someone farted, MORE GUNS

Mine is based on practicality and physics. If I ever need a firearm for protection, the police have no way to get to me in time. They can't magically transport in Star Trek style and save my ass and my ass happens to be very important to me. The reality is that police spend most of their time cleaning up AFTER a crime has been committed.

If I ever need to draw my Kimber or Sig for more than target practice it will immediately reduce crime- the current ongoing one and any crimes the target might have considered in the future. What exactly do you do to reduce crime? "Care"? I'm sure your "caring" has prevented exactly zero crimes.

Unfortunately you are part of our typical evolutionary male mentality, selfishness, risk taking and force. Far too many males in our species worldwide think like you.

"Shit happens so fuck it" is not problem solving it is excuse making. Crime will always be a ratio in our species, but that is not an excuse to think about ways of reducing it. Your Somolian idea of less government has been what we have done for 30 years. I only blame my party for allowing itself to get pulled along and my party's voter apathy.

Unfortunately, you remain a sexist bigot despite me pointing it out several times.

You are right, that is why I take the "shit happens so shoot it" approach. What exactly is your response if someone attacks you?

Name one year in your lifetime where there was less government measured by number of laws, number of regulations, number of employees or size of budget on January 1st than there was the prior January 1st.

i would imagine a response that both the evolutionary male and evolutionary female psychologies would find exceedingly distasteful.

"I have never felt comfortable around people who talk about their feelings for Jesus, or any other deity for that matter, because they are usually none too bright. . . . Or maybe 'stupid' is a better way of saying it; but I have never seen much point in getting heavy with either stupid people or Jesus freaks, just as long as they don't bother me. In a world as weird and cruel as this one we have made for ourselves, I figure anybody who can find peace and personal happiness without ripping off somebody else deserves to be left alone. They will not inherit the earth, but then neither will I. . . . And I have learned to live, as it were, with the idea that I will never find peace and happiness, either. But as long as I know there's a pretty good chance I can get my hands on either one of them every once in a while, I do the best I can between high spots."
