    They are rarely found guilty and their accountability generally consists of being suspended with pay for a short period of time. If that.

    Like stealing pencils? Otherwise, do we normally observe those crimes being committed?

    Are you suggesting the death penalty for them after trial? Or for all that steal property?

    The point is to stop someone from harming you (by taking your property)...just like it is for self-defense.

    Stealing pencils?

    C'mon, you know that white collar thieves steal a lot more than the ones looting stores and burglarizing houses. I'm not the one suggesting the death penalty for theft, you know. That was your position.

    Yes, but how many are caught in the act?

    A homeowner cant go to a burglar's house and shoot him and take his property back.

    It's to prevent the harm from occurring.

    The same reason you must be this high to ride this ride. You are just some random dude on the internet, they are trained officers with a job. In any event, it's not a double standard, it's just a standard.

    So, you'd shoot them if you caught them in the act?

    If they're caught red handed, it should be easy to get a conviction and get the property back. Why would anyone have to shoot them?

    Now, shoot a few Bernie Madoffs, and it just could be a deterrent, but then, it still places property above the value of human life.

    Strip all city and government employees of sovereign immunity and I bet you they will start to behave in a hurry.

    How do you 'catch' them? They are gone by the time cops get there. In most states you cant physically restrain anyone either. (And they're just going to let you? Listen to you?)

    You dont know much about charges and trial dates do you? You may wait months for your property or never get it back, even if the police get them on your property. Otherwise? Good luck seeing it again, period.

    The (white-collar) banksters were caught in the act, how many have gone to jail?
