    "Ima call da po-leece and dey gonna 'git' you"
    I can see where there would be some benefit to that system. It appears slow and cumbersome to me, but like you said...it would cut down on "revenge by calling the cops" cases.

    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    Slow and cumbersome is right.

    Alot of **** doesn't go through the system because of it.

    On the other hand, thats a good thing, it filters out the problems that the complainants don't truly care about.

    That's criminal. It's your damned property! Things like this make me believe that a lot of stuff is crafted by lawmakers to just bring in money to the State, regardless of whether or not it's something they actually have the power to do.

    I had a couple buddies who picked up a busted ol Buick from the junkyard one day, they spent a couple weeks fixing it up, then got completely ****ed on tequila. They drove the car around the yard and finally into the big ol' tree in middle of the front yard. Took it back to the junkyard the next day, and I'm pretty sure that had been the plan all along.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    But you can still wrongfully accuse a cop of racism and not go to jail for it.

    Re: Top scholar Gates arrested in Mass., claims racism

    First I would like to say I dont think the cop is a racist. But we all have our racist moments no matter how you live you life. You may not notice it but it becomes apparent on any side of this race issue.

    But i would like to say that the cop was completely wrong in arresting Gates.

    For one he was in his own house for two to take some to jail for something said (allegedly) in their own home or property that is not a threat is a clear violation of freedom of speech.

    The cop is not a Judge his job is not to interpret the law as he so sees it his job is to enforce the laws as they are written and allow a judge to interpret the law correctly after an arrest is made. The fact is any judge would have thrown this particular case out very quickly.

    Its not that the cop is racist it is we all are racist because we all cannot understand both sides of this issue and we pick sides instead of following whats right and just.

    We all just need to reflect on that thought of choosing sides and what does that say about us. That we dont care about others we just want to win an arguement and not solve a problem
