You LEO types here on FR. I really can't wait to here your defense of this practice. The other FR type, the "Law and Order' conservative, I want to hear you justify checkpoints in general.
Nice to know that everyone here has been lumped into either the LEO type or the "Law and Order" type. Which one of those are you?
I have been Freeping since 2005. I have had this tussle over the 4th amendment over and over.
So if I seem to be picking a fight? I am.
I believe in small government, enumerated federal powers.
We live an an anti constitutional era. I find law and order conservatives to be mystifying. I just can’t understand the juxtaposition of small government, liberty, Natural Law and the acceptance of huge over funded Police Departments.
Law exists to protect the individual. Law exists to ensure that the stronger party cannot force the weaker party into subservience. Law exists to enforce contracts, and allow the pursuit of life liberty and happiness. I just can’t see how that squares with powerful ever present police with so many regs they could never fit them into the trunk of a police car.
I want weak government, strong individuals. Constitutional governance.
Not sure about anyone else, but for me I have had no problems dealing with Police Officers. I do have a problem dealing with Law Enforcement Officers. That you cannot tell the difference is the real problem in our society.
“What’s with all the hostility? It’s like you’re trying to pick a fight for some reason. “
You beat me to it.:-)
It was happy hour at the bar.......
