. "A person is not justified in using deadly force against a public servant whom the person knows or reasonably should know is a public servant unless the force is reasonably necessary to prevent serious bodily injury to the person or a third person." A cursory vehicle stop does not seem to fit within these parameters.

The rhetoric about the social contract I stated? It's actually a huge part of American history.This is all very nice rhetoric, but its just a perspective.
All I said is that their authority is granted by the people, and when they breach the social contract with the people, they reap what they've sown.Even you admit that from a pragmatic and realistic perspective that police are different than normal citizens
I dismissed it because you brought it up.hell you listed yourself several reasons why in your opinion. Heck you dismiss the high speed cash exactly not by citing law, but by citing that its stupid and reckless in your opinion, not something we are arguing.
That's the problem. Police are ordinary citizens. The only "special" citizens are elected officials. Even when I was in the Army, I never viewed myself as being above the US citizenry, because I wasn't. I enlisted into service to protect them, and the Constitution. The key word their is bolded, because it's a very important distinction. I, just like cops are, was paid by the taxpayer. My job that everyone in the US paid me to do was to protect them. Not harm, not beat, or arrest, nor kill them. I was at the service of the United States, not the other way around. The same applies to cops. Some get it, that's cool, I got no beef with those ones. The ones that don't, **** 'em. They get what they get, because actions have consequences, and karma is a bitch.All I am saying, is that under the current laws police have special privileges that ordinary citizens do not have. You may not agree with these laws or what police do, but these laws do exist which give police special authorities and powers where ordinary citizens do not have them, that's all I'm saying.
I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.
