I saw this video. It was embarrassing to see the behavior of law enforcement officials and their lack of professionalism.

Advocates for prison reform say the issue is far more complicated and cite other factors in the increase.

I have been waiting to see when people would challenge under the Second Amendment the prohibition against a convicted felon possessing a weapon

Whether a felon or law abiding citizen supportive of Second Amendment, when someone veers from the rules (goes Postal), all the legislation in the world probably won't prevent it. It is interesting the different scenarios both felons and citizens carrying guns could find themselves in. Interesting issue.

Thank goodness there are some STATES that are good heartedly enforcing the Fourth Amendment. The U.S. Supreme Court has the Fourth, Fifth, and Sixth and  looking like swiss cheese.

Heck, I want some free military equipment. Anyone remember the original Surplus City on Highway 80. You could get great deals on old military equipment. That was heaven for a little boy.
The plan focuses on the Pentagon's Excess Property Program, often known as the 1033 Program.

I think cameras are a good idea.
San Diego PD has adopted a large-scale body camera program. But there's still no transparency.

Very good read.
Pennsylvania's attorney general provided more evidence that the criminal justice system is broken. ;

Yes, I would say we have seen an erosion of our rights from the arm chairs of our recliners as we watch T.V

I think this opinion makes a lot of sense. Or do you think anything you take out of the country should be searched on the way back in?
