Then some idiot said we could only put a soldier in our car if they were under arrest.
Some B.S. "liability" regulation, in case that person got hurt climbing in or out of the car! Frivolous lawsuits, insurance liability, fraudulent
worker's comp, and greedy corporations have ruined the U.S.!
I may run for some office soon. Possibly U S Representative from N. Florida. It is just really hard to mount a campaign and keep your day job!
You would think the populace would want a common working man to represent them, but they inevitably vote for some slick, rich, puppet!
Look at Ron Paul, Dennis Kucinich, and the others with terrific messages, but no face time on MSM!
I have many friends that are cops. From a Chief of Police and FBI agent to bicycle beat cops. They are typically very good people, and they use
their common sense, but with so many cops on the street, carrying several types of weapons, riding a roller coaster from fear to boredom, it is no
wonder these things happen.
In my current location (right this second) I am within the jurisdiction of FDLE, Capitol Police, FHP, City Cops, County Sheriffs, FSU Cops, and FAMU
Cops. That is 7 different local departments with jurisdiction over this spot. In addition we have FBI, DEA, Homeland Security, and Coast Guard that
operate in the area!
Edit: Forgot about Forestry Division (armed and common in the area) and Department of Ag.
What does that make the total...at least 13 armed organizations trying to control a small piece of land? And we still have rapes, burglaries, drugs,
and murders. Sounds more like Central Columbia or Afghanistan when you put it that way!
