I imagine that the HP reported a dramatic decrease in the number of seizures, once they realized they couldn’t get their hands on the money. What a bunch of punks.

As has been stated on this thread. People need to really re-think how they feel about the cops. I am one. And I don’t like ‘em anymore than anyone else.

Data like what prescription meds a CCW is taking, charitable donations, everything. And the GOP wonders why we are so opposed to “expanded background checks”. It is almost akin to tattoo’d numbers on our underarms..(if I may wax a tad dramatic..)

Looks like the new tactic is to cross reference a firearms ownership database with your medical records and confiscate firearms from anyone treated for "mental illness" or prescribed certain medications.

Ever been treated for depression after the death of a loved on, serious accident, divorce? Ever have insomnia, an eating disorder, fear of flying, stress from work or a family situation?

On medication for management of chronic pain?

Doesn't matter that the database is illegal or that your medical records are protected, it's for the children.

This is for real FReepers.

I’ve never believed local LEO will stand with the people. They have an “us vs them” mentality. And most of them are on a power trip.

Plus, they would all love to work for the feds. So, if the feds ask for some more firepower, they can’t wait to volunteer. And they don’t ask the feds for documentation.

See, that proves we don’t need federal data. The states will do it for them. /s

Conservatives should have never put members of one profession on a pedestal in the first place.

Sadly, we are reaping the rewards of decades of near-blind support.

Hopefully there are still more peace officers who will stand with us, than there are LEOs who will happily turn over our information to others in government.

This is why no conservative should have blindly supported law enforcement to begin with.

For the same reason that no parent should blindly say “Little Johnny or little Susie would NEVER _________________ “.

Once Little Johnny or Little Susie learn they can Do No Wrong, they no longer fear repercussions for doing great wrong.

“I’d be happy if some of the cast of characters lost their jobs.”

“I would be even happier if a few prominent members of the laws-only-for-little-people crowd found out the hard way that that the law applies to everyone or it applies to no one.”

I wonder how the MSP would feel if their names and addresses were publicized?

A lot of that has to do with who you define as “us”, and how LEOs define “themselves”.

At my age, and having grown up outside city limits, a local cop was the person you called in as a last resort, when you didn't want a specific situation to get out of hand, or when you saw that it already had.
Most people are generally law abiding citizens and have no love of vigilante justice.

That has changed over the years, and the justice system has been perverted at basic levels.

Some people think it is a mark of pride to avoid jury duty.Some people think it is the job of a publically appointed defense lawyer to halt a conviction of the crime they are guilty of committing. There is a case in Colorado you may have heard of...shooter apprehended by police outside a movie theater after he killed multiple people.
He admitted he was the shooter. He admitted he wanted to kill even more people, and told the cops his apartment was booby trapped to take out even more.
But we are all supposed to pretend to presume him entirely innocent of his crimes, and treat him as if he is merely “alleged” to be the mass murderor, while the legal case against him slowly works it way through the court system.
All the cops and everyone who knows any details are forbidden by a judge to talk openly to the public about the “incident”.
Lest his right to a “fair trial” be tainted by reports of the truth of what happened.
Is that justice?

How do you think the cops who had to deal with him feel now?

Who's side are you on?

I’m on the side of the constitution. And I doubt very many cops have ever looked at it. And that’s scary.

Ever hear of a guy named Kenneth Wayne McDuff. He got the death penalty for raping, torturing then killing three teens. One of them was a boy and he raped him with a broom stick.

But some judge ruled the death penalty was unconstitutional and his sentence was changed to life. He got parolled after 20 years. Two federal marshalls in Waco called every surrounding county sheriff and told them if any women came up missing, look for McDuff. Bottom line he raped, tortured and killed 4 more women before they finally caught him. After about ten years he was finally excuted.

What should have happened? First of all, he should have been executed for the first murders. Since that didn’t happen, for the second murders there was a witness on one of them. He should have been hanged in the public square for being found guilty for the first murders.

I don’t like seeing innocent people executed. And that includes the innocent people McDuff and the theater shooter killed.
