    Shopkeeper, too aint missing much.


    That said, garner should have gotten a fine, not kilt. based on the law as it stands.
    Once again, as with any code that requires a fine only, once you break the same damn code enough times, increased penalties are called for.

    True, for example, if I get enough points on my license, I get a notice from the DMV in the mail that my license has been suspended and these are the fines I owe.


    I don't get jumped by a jock cop and have him attempt to choke me out. (that's not even a legal action).


    And again, his only crime that day was.....?

    I hate to burst your bubble, but being a Libertarian doesn't mean you oppose the idea of laws being passed and maintained on the books. I think you're confusing Libertarianism with anarchy.

    And yes, when people break laws, and commit crimes like murder, rape, robbery, embezzlement of non-profit funds, extortion, etc., I like it when the police arrest them. I'm weird like that.

    I don't own the road. The ice cream truck can park on the side of the road if he feels like it.

    Wanting to do with laws like picking up seaweed and selling lemonade now constitutes anarchy. Pointing out that some laws are stupid and being arrested for violating them is authoritarian... means... anarchy... ... Do you know the meaning of these words you use?

    And yes, when people break laws, and commit crimes like murder, rape, robbery, embezzlement of non-profit funds, extortion, etc., I like it when the police arrest them. I'm weird like that.
    Still won't answer the question? Here, I'll make it easier for you: Would you support your kids being arrested for picking up seaweed? If no, then your statement is nonsense. If yes, then may whomever have mercy on your soul.

    Once again, let me explain since you're being obtuse.

    My kids won't get arrested for picking up seaweed. My kids would get arrested for selling drugs in school, for breaking into houses, for setting fires to peoples' pets, blowing up our neighbor's house, raping the cheerleaders, murdering the class nerd, and so on. And yup, that's what happens when you break laws.

    Many laws are stupid. Like the ACA, for instance. And the strict gun laws in New York City. But we aren't discussing stupid laws and stupid lawmakers. We're discussing the police, who don't make laws.

    Obtuse would imply I don't understand your point. I more than understand it and realize you simply don't want to answer the question.

    However, if they did get arrested for picking up seaweed: would you support it as they did break the law? Saying they won't so there is no point in answering is nonsense. You can't see into the future anymore than I can. What I am asking you is, if it were your kids being arrested for violating a ridiculous law, would you support it? It's a simple answer: Yes/No.

    My kids won't get arrested for picking seaweed. You keep asking me a ridiculous question. It isn't going to happen. They don't arrest people in NH for picking up seaweed. They also won't get arrested for walking their unicorns without a leash. I won't get arrested for shooting Brad Pitt while he's wearing my husband's boxer shorts. And I already answered the question about supporting the arrest of my children if they get arrested for breaking a law.

    If you don't like the seaweed laws in NH, why don't you write to our governor about them? I live here and they don't concern me at all. Why do they bother you?

    You're still missing the point, aren't ya? Here, let me explain it simply, ignore the fact that you have a magical 8 ball to see into the future, ignore that you think you know what will happen 3-5-10 years from now: If your kids were arrested for breaking an insignificant law, would you support their arrest?

    You know, your silence and avoidance of the question are far more telling than your continued assertions that you can see into the future.

    The faces not shown? Guess why. The second video? Kids threatened with arrest if they don't shut down their lemonade stands. Please tell us all how your "Libertarian" ideas justify that.

    Clearly the officers acted improperly. If you watch the video - one of the girls tried to pull away and more than one refused to do what the police told them to do.

    IN IS INEXCUSABLE that those girls were not tasered, thrown to the ground and beat for "resisting." I guess because the girls were white girls the police show them favoritism.
