    Ooooooooooooooh it's the old, "increasing militarization of the police" argument. That's an empty claim. If you look at history, it's more appropriate to say the military is doing business more like the police, but whatever. I doubt you're interested in reality.

  3. Update on the King v. Kentucky Case:


    From the opinion:

    "Consistent with the instructions on remand from the United States
    Supreme Court, this Court concludes that exigent circumstances did not exist
    when police made a warrantless entry of the apartment occupied by Appellant
    King. Therefore, the denial of King's motion to suppress evidence is reversed,

    and King's judgment of conviction stands vacated."

    The Chicago Police have been documented as beating confessions to murder and running theft rings. It is why we no longer have a Death penalty, we can no longer trust the Police. They have dishonored themselves and are not even ashamed enough to quit. In a generation or two we may have the kind of Policemen that are honorable. Of course, our Governors set quite an example. How do you feel about our President, he is a product of the same machine.
