Puritanical leftism at its very finest. Disgusting story.

The discussion on Salon is interesting. The people are pointing fingers (liberal v conservatives) at each other rather than the cause. The Conclusion of the article states it best:
“So long as partisans are only willing to speak out against aggressive, militarized police tactics when theyre used against their own and are dismissive or even supportive of such tactics when used against those whose politics they dislike, it seems unlikely that the country will achieve enough of a political consensus to begin to slow down the trend.”
One guy finally spoke up and said:

It is not a “No True Scotsman” argument. You are both right.
“True” liberals are opposed to police overstepping their authority.
“True” conservatives, support and uphold the Bill of Rights.
So why are our rights stepped on? Because ‘politics as usual’ tends to trump moral conviction on both sides.

Many here don't like SALON, but this article is well worth reading in its entirety and filing. The police in many areas behave much more aggressively than when confronting very large mobs in the 60’s. Bill Ayres types and the various ‘peace’ rioters generally seemed to be a step ahead of the police and at least on equal terms in many riots and street battles. Now average Americans are routinely treated like the subjects of some Third World thug state.
After overhearing the men wagering, Baucum befriended Culosi as a cover to begin investigating him. During the next several months, he talked Culosi into raising the stakes of what Culosi thought were just more fun wagers between friends to make watching sports more interesting. Eventually Culosi and Baucum bet more than $2,000 in a single day.
Asshat's never heard of "entrapment". Moron. Create a crime so you can arrest the other guy for it. Wait....I thought LEO's were supposed to be FIGHTING crime, not generating it.

One sometimes reflects with dismay that the individual sense of shame is dying out in America.

The ultra liberal Salon is late to the story. Non the less, they are welcome to our side. We can stand their stench if the will help us return our country to where the police protect and serve.
