    Hypothetical white kid's hypothetical family would only hypothetically care if he was offed by a hypothetical black man. That's the hypothetically correct answer, right?

    Police departments are like the Catholic Church. Priests are trusted by the communities they service, so there are abundant opportunities to interact with children, making it an ideal profession for pedophilles. Better yet, the Church relies on its reputation to carry out its mission, so when the pedophille gets smoked out they rush to cover up in the name of their "greater good."

    Police departments give power in the form of a badge and a gun, so that line of work is ideal for people who desire authority but never developed the moral discipline to use it properly. Police departments also rely on their reputation to carry out their mission, so when police fall pretty to their weak nature the department rushes to cover it up in the name of their "greater good."
    There is a HUGE difference. Most neighborhoods need basically a small band of patrol officers. That neighborhood needs the 101st Airborne and a Special Ops unit.

    Not to split hairs, but I dont think tear gas per se, is not banned in combat. Rather, it is technically permissable so long as it is not used as a lethal asphixciant (thrown into bunkers where the people cannot get out and suffocate etc). It can be used to cover retreats etc.

    Also saves the cops from getting hurt.

    There's no need for tear gas, have you ever been hit by a rubber bullet coming out of the likes of an M1014?

    No, but I saw rubber bullet at a police display once (very hard and dense rubber ball that looked like a musket ball. I think it even had a metal core), and that was enough to make me not want to get hit with one.

    Places like this are why we're destined for a nation of drones and robocops in the not too distant future.

    Why don't other races burn their own communities to the ground and steal everything they can grab??
