The five great lies of the
We can be Godless and free. • “Social justice” through forced redistribution of wealth. • Silencing religious opinions counts as “diversity”. • Freedom without moral and personal responsibility. • Civilization can survive the intentional undermining of the family.
That's one of my few complaints about this place. It is so big, and has so many different and varied forums, that redundant threads are fairly common. It's easy for stuff to get lost. Not anybody's fault, but frustrating nonetheless.
Here's one that happened locally a couple months ago:

Whitlock faces charges of second-degree assault and first-degree wanton endangerment.
Whitlock shot a woman outside a Walmart store in southwestern Jefferson County in early November. He told Louisville Metro police he was chasing a suspected shoplifter and she ran over his foot as she fled the parking lot.
FOUNTAIN VALLEY — Police recommended Wednesday that Orange County prosecutors bring criminal assault charges against an off-duty Long Beach police officer who shot a motorist during a heated traffic dispute here over the weekend

When Phoenix police Officer Richard Chrisman and another patrolman arrived in response to her domestic-violence call, she asked them to reason with her son. She expected they would issue a warning and cool things down.
Instead, about 15 minutes later, Danny Frank Rodriquez was shot dead inside the trailer. One of the family's dogs was also fatally shot.
And Chrisman now faces felony charges.
Why would you prefer a form of government that is demonstrably inferior to decentralized forms of government?It's also the basis of the form of Government (Authoritarianism) that I prefer.
Advocating the cold-blooded murder of someone who violated a petty park ordinance is beyond insane, it's psychopathic.Very likely I would have. What's insane is giving false information to a LEO and then expecting you're just going to be allowed to walk away.

In my opinion law enforcement get the benefit of the doubt in this situation. They do not hire any old Joe of the street for law enforcement positions, there are background checks, references etc. Law enforcement officers are not infallible but the whole point of giving them a badge is saying we are saying law enforcement is necessary and we give these departments the authority to enforce the laws.
Things simply would not function if everyone could question/ and disrespect law enforcement officers on everything. We would be back to the wild wild west.
Walking off in the middle of an officer writing a citation is blatant disrespect, and I can't imagine it would go well if you drove off while a traffic officer was writing you a citation.
