See pick in my previous post. Breaking the law is exercising what's gauranteed us outside zones defined by the government. Free speech zones...wow. That's the mindset I fear the masses are moving towards. The whole "if you don't have anything to hide, you shouldn't have a problem with the Patriot Act and government being able to outright circumvent civil rights"....because, afterall, we don't NEED them if we aren't doing anything wrong and we'd rather give those up than allow criminals go free. But when two disagree on something like this, it's a bedrock perspective....we'll just agree to disagree. I think it's worse for an innocent man to get life in prison/death for murder than for a murderer to get off the hook.
More injustice happens before any court is involved , should be more concerned with your fascist police officers tazing people trying to get on a fucking bus.
Actually, my perspective isn't derived from a "justice-oriented" standpoint. A bank robber going to jail isn't injustice...so it isn't "more" injuctice before court involved...all the injustice transpired before court. And you can't really knock "fascist" police officers tazing people for trying to get on a bus. If the police tell them not to get on a bus, that's a lawful order (anything the government says is lawful, is lawful, afterall, right?)...and disobeying a lawful order is breaking the law. See your first sentance. That's the very thing that protecting Americans' consititutional toes will prevent : tazing people trying to get on a bus.
And if you wanna talk about fascist police, Diz...that's nothing. What's being done in our cities is a page taken right out of another book that that's become too cliche to mention:
Sorry, but this is the kind of shit that derives from making exceptions to rules because of good reasons like public safety. My opinion is that it's total bullshit. I know it's not the same story, but "stepping on constitutional toes", when done in context of judicial precedent, is very dangerous. But like was once said in a shitty geek movie "So this is how freedom dies : To thunderous applause."
Please keep in mind that I'm a gun-owning, government mis-trusting libertarian...that should make me look dumb enough to not be worth arguing with...
