I might have went too far with the line about eating at Denny’s, But none of my other opinions have changed. We sure do seem to attract more Boot Lickers here than usual lately. Seems that once you confront them with HARD FACTS about their “Buddies” they crawl back under the rock from which they came.

I find threads like this to be useful in identifying those who react with a knee-jerk response, sometimes on both sides. I've found over the many years that I've been on FR that those who blindly support the government in its various forms has been steadily decreasing. Ten years ago, you'd have seen a much
stronger response in support of the powers that be. I see it as a good sign. There will always be some who don't fully think through the implications.
Personally, as far as I'm concerned, in situations like this, where you have a victim disarmament zone, I don't think the police (on or off duty) should be armed any more than your average citizen unless they are acting directly in their official capacity.
