In before Hillary comments and attack on the source.
Trump supporters don't care, just as Hillary supporters don't care about her negatives.
They both represent things that don't represent the American populace.
Being lifelong friends, can't say I'm surprised.
Once again - Americans are plagued with the notion and (s)election between Democrats and Republicans that are both corrupt and do not represent we the people.
Wake up, folks - we're being played.

It's still not right.
I swear, I try to stay consistent when it comes to individual rights.
Will it make a big difference? Perhaps not.
But I find it difficult to ignore individual liberties. I really do. I understand how "stop and frisk" is effective.
But I just can't.
*Shakes head in frustration*
The Stop-question-and-frisk program, or stop-and-frisk, in New York City, is a practice of the New York City Police Department in which police officers stop and question a pedestrian, then frisk them for weapons and other contraband; this is what is known in other places in the United States as the Terry stop.
The rules for stop, question, and frisk are found in the state's criminal procedure law section 140.50, and are based on the decision of the United States Supreme Court in the case of Terry v. Ohio.
 About 684,000 people were stopped in 2011, however the number of stops has been reduced dramatically since then, to 22,939 in 2015. The vast majority of those stopped were African-American or Latino, a disparity which, according to a 2007 study, persists even after controlling for "precinct variability and race-specific estimates of crime participation."

How has being nice and understanding working for us ?
I love my rights...
The problem is others could care less about my rights.
He intends to blatantly trample the Constitution. Let's stop pretending and mincing words.
Last night, NBC News' Michael Isikoff released a 16-page "white paper" prepared by the Obama DOJ that purports to justify Obama's power to target even Americans for assassination without due process
The foundation for conducting such action can be found in Terry vs. Ohio.

So , I gather from your Post that you Favor the Rights of Criminals of not being Identified by Law Enforcement Officials over the Right of Law Biding Citizens being Protected by the Law ? I see...........
