we should do away with all laws, everything from jaywalking to murder.
that way, when you decide you want to cross the street whenever YOU want, regardless of everyone else around, and you get hit by a car and killed.
the driver wont be charged with murder. because all laws are bad and pointless right?
and as for the 2nd guy. it really is his fault and his fault alone. when cops tell you to do something, you do it. whether its to stop running your
mouth or to put the weapon down. YOU ARE SUPPOSED TO DO IT. PERIOD. if you dont, thats your decision and you have to face the consequences.
society has laws for a reason, it needs laws for a reason. and if everyone starts picking and choosing which ones they deem appropriate, it all
yes the cops should have and could have handled it better. a simple warning should be more than sufficient for a minor infraction. but still. laws
Allow me to explain why your argument is severely retarded...
We have had laws long before codes, statutes and acts...
A code violation is NOT a law violation. You think it is: people also believe in "God."
Does it make it true? Nope.
Within the construct of the current system as it is: it is inherently #ed up and flawed. -Check.
Your analogy does NOT correlate to this situation.
Your personal feelings get in the way of sound/logical point of view because you're emotional
and irrational and an obvious smart ass: based on your own post.
Since you obviously have a license, ID, SSN and USE them to identify yourself:
you tell law enforcement that YOU: are under their jurisdiction because YOU are a corporate fiction-sorry.
A human being has the right to privacy, not to incriminate himself and to be secure in his property.
He did NOTHING wrong, did not breach the peace and did not commit a crime: no crime no charge.
He did not know how to handle himself as I, and other human beings do.
Since he was a person: he had to reveal his government issued ID: and BAM: they could now take him lawfully.
This doesn't happen to me and many other people because:
WE KNOW OUR RIGHTS.
Perhaps you don't? That sucks for you.
Yelling at a cop, arguing tells the cop you are an aggressive person.
Peacefully talking to them takes away their anger and their stance.
