Ohhhhh! All they had to do was sit on a sidewalk for a few minutes? My bad, I thought they were handcuffed after drug out of their cars by heavily armed police officers aiming weapons at them and then detained for several hours. That's what I get for reading several news reports instead of listening to your propaganda. Doh!
Right, I will go with this report which says 2 hours, not a few minutes I said, and not the few hours you insisted. We were both wrong.
Yeah, you're right. Parents should be allowed to use this tactic with their kids. Just point armed pistols and shotguns at them while handcuffing them and then make them sit on a curb for a "few minutes" (wink wink). After all, it's not like imprisoning children, it is a "win/win" for parenting and upbringing.
Right, have you EVER been detained in a situation like this? Its understandable why the cops had their guns out and ready. There were innocents around and the perp was armed. At any moment he could have fired off shots and the police need to neutralize as quick as possible. They don't have time to play quick draw here.
Yeah, you're right. That due process of law nonsense is just a bunch of ideological hooey. Hell, if you're not doing anything wrong, then why do you need rights, right?
Here you are once again over ruling SCOTUS. They decide on what is constitutional, regardless of your opinion.
