I don't know if you quite get what I meant tho. It's not an either or, and it was never meant to be.
Personally? I just want to see the Constitution honored
So I do see and respect your points and opinions......
What do we do?
I don't think we disagree, maybe we both just tend to highlight the group that we personally see causing the most trouble.
I'm not sure how things get fixed and while what I hear of South Africa today isn't the best from folks living there, I have always thought something akin to their Truth and Reconciliation Committees would be needed here. A total change of physical names and bodies across the leadership to remove all personal B.S., and then, only then, an open forum of investigation to settle what's happened, before we can move on as a nation and culture.
....The dyke is the BIG stuff hidden and quashed across the last 30-40 years, where names then are STILL names now. Look at the names of the inner circle to Nixon, Ford and Carter. We aren't still being hurt by people who followed or knew those guys. It's STILL those guys.

OK, I understand the complaints about SWAT teams, but what do you expect? You want your assault rifle with 30-round clips that spits bullets as fast as you can pull the trigger, and then wonder why there are SWAT teams everywhere. A guy in my "quiet" neighborhood got pissed at his GF, and started shooting at her with his AR-15! Guess what? The police don't want a fair fight, they want to go home to their wife and kids in one piece.
You are absolutely correct. Two of my kids work for the state and they were telling me about their "SWAT" units. Those guys are so arrogant and self entitled it's unbelievable. They are also feared within the departments themselves. Can you imagine having a team at work that everyone else is afraid of?
