    Now, of course this 12 year old was home schooled, so there is no way to know if he exhibited any behavior that would have predicted to teachers and administrators the pending violence had he been in a public school.

    I come back from vacation and find the status quo. I'd hoped for better, although I didn't really expect it.

    In the end, no answer after all this time (yeah, I re-read Post #5... what sentence contained the "answer"? The one that wants us to believe that a lawyer's common advice not talk to LEO?). Meh.

    So, as far as TBO's post is concerned, "anti-authority" has no deep contextual meaning, and is meant only to taunt and to suppress argumentation (like calling someone a racist, or, heck, anti-healthcare, for that matter). So I'll exercise my right not to take offense to his emptiness. :honkie:

    I believe Sam's previous post is appropriate here, too.

    The answer, dear NCL, is in Post #5, eh, somewhere. Not sure what sentence brings it altogether, but I hear tell that a golden nugget of truth (all caps) exists in the dark regions of that brave post.


    Well, I am both prompt and direct. However, I do explore. For example, I mentioned that what was being described as "anti-authority" is the common practice of defense attorneys. Seems odd for him to become angry when a person takes the time-proven advice of someone who graduated from law school and passed their state Bar exam.

    There is a streak of anti-authoritarianism in the majority of the progeny of those who came to this country to get away from it in other countries. That makes it in a majority of the population.

    Me included. I am a LAC, but don't mess with me. I have no problem talking to the LEO's when I have something pertinent to say, but don't start questioning me for no legal or apparent reason. If I am not in custody and one starts that I will just walk away. If one lays hands on me without justification, look for assault charges. I am not out there crossing the line, don't cross mine.:cool:

    Isn't that the question? Where is the balance point between indivual liberties and society's interets?

    Might be a good time to reintroduce this thread...

    Some in current threads didn't participate when this first came out...

    Interesting. In the cop section there is a thread about a cop complaining about his car being searched for a weapon when he and his family wanted to pass the border into Canada. There were a lot of posters talking about how wrong that was. Would that be considered anti-authority, even though the Canadian customs officials felt completely justified in their suspicion?

    Depends on the content of the post(s).
    As for individuals, post history can often be self defining.

    Anti-authority regarding Canadian laws? Come to Toronto or Patchmanabad and throw your "I'm an American. I have rights" around.

    Even North Korea might have gotten this right!

    This is how the "Ugly American" started.
