Instead, we need to send Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson packing and address the real issue without flinching from the race baiters. While there is a percentage of law enforcement that behaves inappropriately the biggest part of the problem is black culture, and the biggest part of that is the dissolution of the black family. The government certainly bears some blame for that, but they are not going to fix it. The community has to do that.
Instead what is driving crime and Chicago's homicides are teenagers (which the infographic does indicates) that have formed 'gangs' that are more resembling of high-school cliques than actual gangs. The fights aren't over who get to deal crack where, but rather it's over high school drama, relationships, petty crime and who's dissing each other on Twitter that ends up turning into shootings and revenge killings. The police aren't able to control that type of behavior like they were able to do with "big gangs."

i had forgotten how little i enjoy this libertarian "everything is unconstitutional" ****. i didn't enjoy it that much even when i was one. stick to rolling back the drug war and the war on terror, because no one is going to agree with you that there shouldn't be any workplace regulations. that's just ****ing nonsense.
anyway, i don't care. just require the ****ing cameras. it needs to be done, and it's going to be done. it will help the police and the people being arrested. if we leave it to the states, some of them will **** around and not pass it, and we'll have a hodgepodge of states where this **** is still going on. just get it done.
Women (Nasty or otherwise) are going to be the reason that Donald Trump is NEVER President!
Even if something is a good idea, that doesn't mean that Congress has the right to mandate it. The closest they can come is tying federal streams of funding to police forces to it, similar to the drinking age and road funding.
“If we must have an enemy at the head of Government, let it be one whom we can oppose, and for whom we are not responsible, who will not involve our party in the disgrace of his foolish and bad measures.”

I didn't even make that argument. Our discussion is about federal authority, not the existence of workplace regulations in general. No one really agrees with libertarians on the drug war or the war on terror either. When was the last time a liberal argued for legalizing some drug without taxes, licensing, and government regulation? Was the last time liberals or conservatives for that matter agreed with non-intervention? Liberals support creating a legal channel of buying and selling pot, but they are still very much in agreement with busting people for buying and selling them in unapproved ways.i had forgotten how little i enjoy this libertarian "everything is unconstitutional" ****. i didn't enjoy it that much even when i was one. stick to rolling back the drug war and the war on terror, because no one is going to agree with you that there shouldn't be any workplace regulations. that's just ****ing nonsense.
