    It's that weak way of thinking that only encourages criminals to victimize citizens, because they know from the git-go that they have the law on their side. Laws are only for law abiding folks.
    That attitude tells me you are no stranger to violence and covering up criminal activity.

    It's a sad day in this country when a robber has more rights than law abiding citizens, protecting their property. Even sadder than that, are the people that think that's ok.
    It's a sadder day when a radical few think they have the right to physically brutallize a fleeing theif.

    I'm no stranger to some son-of-a-bitch trying to take my **** that I worked very hard to acquire. He didn't pull it off, either. I'm not weak, like some folks I could mention. Those kind of people are the reasons that criminals are allowed to thrive in our society.

    What's really sad, is when a fellow citizen has more regard for the criminal than the person the criminal just victimized.

    I reckon victims only count when their vote is at stake.

    I am so glad the law doesn't agree with you.

    If someone steals an apple, you don't have the right to beat him into submission needing an ambulance, especially if he has no weapon and is not fighting back.

    Why this is a hard concept to understand is beyond me.

    You're probably one of those people that have been victimized your whole life, because you didn't have the nerve to do anything about it. It's people like you that do more to encourage criminals than to discourage them.

    Why the concept of protecting your property and your family, no matter what, is so hard to understand is beyond me.

    I follow the law too. The law states that if some asshole crosses my threshold, with the intent to steal my property, or harm my family, I'm well within my rights to kill that cocksucker.

    You keep following the law, my friend, because that's exactly what the criminal scumbags want you to do.

    I'm someone who believes in the concept of law and society and do not believe that power is in and of itself justification for violence. Maybe you should try a less civilized country. Or century.

    Don't come crying to me when some thug mother****er ties you up and forces you to watch him rape your wife, or your daughter. You were just following the law, right?
