Are... are you serious?
Who decides the cops and the government have better judgement than we do? They're only human, just as we are. Difference is, they are equipped with
the law, and they can abuse power all they want to. It's not about taking the law into our own hands,
it's about keeping ourselves safe when
the law fails us.
And, yes... the law does, and will always, fail us.
Remember Katrina? Where was FEMA?
The government had plenty of time to shoot the desperate looters trying to survive from the disaster, but it was a little harder for FEMA to save
But no, I'm sure you're right. The government is much more trustworthy than we are.
