There is absolutely no need for this forum, sorry bill but your OP makes it sound like a extension of the American Issues forum, unless Posse
Comitatus has actually been suspended (and its not) i cant see a need for this type of forum.
i take issue as well with several of your reasons:
The unconstitutional domestic surveillance of the NSA
The NSA has been spying for years and we have known about it without a forum such as this, usually just getting put in to the "general conspiracies
forum", and I think that above comment is debatable, PRISM was legal we are told after all (to be clear i am not saying i agree with that just making
The militarization of police in the United States and around the world
Unless the National Guard takes over policing duties then there is no grounds for this, yes some of the law enforcement community have military style
weapons and tactics (such as SWAT and HRT) but they are needed with the threats we face.
The rise of heavy-handed or disproportionately extreme police actions
This has been happening form day one, as long as there exists a police presence in society this will go on, and why single out the police its the
whole of the legal apparatus that is to blame for this.
Conspiracies surrounding the war on drugs in the United States
This one i actually get (although not in the context of this forum) but all you are going to do is invite people to start up discussions about illegal
substance misuse and fall into the same problems I am told you had with another forum about drugs.
5) The US (and international) drug laws that impose disproportionate penalties
as above really, going to lead to loads of T&C violations
The incarceration society in the US and the overcrowded prisons and policies that keep them that way
What we now need a forum about prison over crowding?
because that is how that last one sounds, its also going to invite a whole load of the "FEMA camp" threads..
Sorry big man, but i don't see the point in any of this, we can discuss all of this stuff on the boards anyway with out yet another forum that to my
knowledge none of the members have been asking for. I can see this leading to loads of members getting into bother for breaking the T&C's and I don't
think think that all of these reasons are as connected with Posse Comitatus as you might like to think.
