It's a bit offtopic, but OK, I will play. I am self employed, 50% owner of a construction business, and 100% owner of a graphic design business. What
do I actually know? Nothing, just like you, only I am not afraid to admit that. And knowing nothing, I side with the law, suspect is innocent until
proven guilty. I am not gonna call the guy a murderer or cop killer because that is what he would have been accused of had they not barbequed his ass.
He died an innocent man.
When I was a kid I lived in a rural area of NY that had no real crime, and no minorities to profile and harass. You might think that means the cops
were cool and laid back because their job was so easy. No, without minorities to profile, they just age profiled instead. They would harass the youth.
Gather in a big group at town park, they would come and toss us out. Even bothered the nerdy kids that would gather there at the picnic tables to
study for finals on a nice day. Or play their magic card game.
So we got fed up with it, and a bunch of us vocal youth brought the issue to the town board. We proposed that the police department was a waste of
money, made a big presentation with fancy graphs and charts. The town board saw it our way and got rid of the police department altogether. The town
didn't spiral down into chaos because we had no police, it was actually a lot safer.
The town I live in now, no police force. The town pays two RCMP to do nothing but sit in a cushy little office, with a gym and entertainment center,
and wait for calls. The office is like 100 feet away from the school. No patrolling and harassing and handing out tickets. Works out just great. It's
real freedom. Someone wants to sit on their front porch and smoke a funny cigarette, they are free to do so. Living by common law is great, you can do
whatever you want, unless you harm another person, or damage their property it is fine. You are welcome to live in some city crawling with cops, with
a book of statutes thicker than the bible to enforce, been there done that. No thanks.
