What this 911 caller tells this elderly women, will make you want to pull your hair out.
 
We’re not sure what they’re teaching 9-1-1 emergency operators these days, but the bad advice given to one individual seeking emergency services might just get you killed. An 80-year old woman in Florida who was recovering from hip surgery was relaxing in … Continue reading →

Yes they are dumb! They have to much power. They have been corrupted by it. I feel bad for them in a way. Most of our military will not follow the illegal orders given to them. The militarized police im not so sure, they kill us on the streets anyways with no problem. I have faith our military will stand with us.

Firearms training does not address the moral issues of using a weapon, nor does it cure insanity, inoculate against ethical lapses, or treat anger management issues.

In contrast, carrying a weapon does accomplish at least some of those things, for the reasons eloquently explained by Eric S. Raymond:

"King, an advocate of nonviolence, wanted to legally arm himself in 1956 after his house was bombed...the police denied the civil rights leader permission to own a gun. The NRA and the Republican Party rallied behind King’s right to bear arms, but were ultimately unsuccessful."
Some African-Americans say tighter restrictions on guns rob them of their civil rights

So, shouldn't they be more afraid of rope then guns?
I don't think they're completely honest about what they really think. Personally.

“The weight of modern authority establishes the doctrine that when a person, being without fault and in a place where he has a right to be, is violently assaulted, he may, without retreating, repel force by force, and if, in reasonable exercise of his right of self-defence, his assailant is killed, he is justifiable." ~ Runyon v. State, 1877

And I'll raise you one:

Pennsylvania Constitution:  The right of the citizens to bear arms in defence of themselves and the State shall not be questioned.  Art. 1, § 21 (enacted 1790, art. IX, § 21).
      1776:  That the people have a right to bear arms for the defence of themselves and the state; and as standing armies in the time of peace are dangerous to liberty, they ought not to be kept up; And that the military should be kept under strict subordination, to, and governed by, the civil power.  Declaration of Rights, cl. XIII.

Here's a refreshing perspective on our Unalienable Rights as citizens of the United States of America.  

"None of the Amendments grant us any rights; what they do is forbid the government from infringing on them"

+Matthew Newberry I'm sure you see this all the time too; Authors writing "grant" in their articles when referring to the BOR. It's maddening!

Either the laws must apply to everyone equally (meaning the laws themselves can't define exceptions,) or else you have serfs and nobles.

Manteca Police officer, John Moody
 
This cop is a piece of shit. Shot an unarmed man 11 times! Three of those shots occurred while the victim was on the ground! The police officer was later, and unsurprisingly, cleared of any wrong doing.

What's is wrong with America?

Beware, very strong material. (~8 mins)

Who does't love arm chair quarterbacks that have never touched a football, all that trash about cops needing some kind of training on this situation? Who are you to think this was not in their training? If you were armed and a large dog was aggressive to you what would you do... Become a meal (victim)? Or deal with the situation? What is worth more your life or a dog? You can always get a different dog. Also the main fact remains, if the stupid dog owner would have just shut his pie hole or walked on than fido would still need walks and puppy chow and not a pile of dirt. Here is my question... If someone is holding you at gun point does the color of the cops uniform, car, badge, bullets, underwear or skin matter. Also If you want to see who is keeping racism alive than look at who keeps talking about it! If I don't water my plants they die. The racial dividers are the same. Doesn't suck when someone presents the facts.
