    That said, it may be time. I've seen enough bs with my own eyes to justify giving it a shot.
    I'd like to think it wouldn't do away with officer discretion. It wouldn't have to . . .

    Technically, officers are supposed to arrest everybody they reasonably believe commited an arrestable offense. Its supposed to be prosecutors/courts who determine guilt or innocence.

    Prosecutors want belt notches. Cities want ticket revenue.

    So they probably won't allow discretion when cameras become common.

    But some courtesy and less violence is probably worth the trade-off.

    Cop Pulls Gun On Kids Building A Tree Fort (VIDEO) | The Libertarian Republic

    11-year-old building tree fort says officer pulled gun on him,... | www.wsbtv.com

    This happens all the time. Stupid cops letting power get to their heads. I can't stand the police.

    Just the other day I was walking back to my car at the airport at around 2pm, when two police officers in a patrol car flashed their lights at me and came up to "talk." They wanted to know my name, what I was doing there, they asked questions about what kind of car I drove, where I lived, so on.

    All while I was WALKING from the terminal to my car, in the AIRPORT PARKING LOT.... exactly what you're supposed to be doing.

    Well, the officers didn't believe that I actually drove the car I do, so they followed me in their patrol car as I walked to my car, and they watched me get in to my car, and pull out of the lot. Funny thing is I was just coming back from Cancun.... I'm sure his 50k per year ass could never afford to go.

    ****ing cops.


    Then just this weekend, I was at a bar with a young lady. 2am is closing time, and there were about 50 or so people still in the bar getting ready to leave. The cop shouted "let's go everybody," to which I responded "OK just one second" as I was getting this girl's number down.

    The cop grabbed me by the collar and dragged me out of the building. I would have kicked his ass for that, but then I would be in jail.

    Meanwhile, there were still 50 patrons in the bar, the only reason he did that to me was because I dared "backtalk" his proud ass.

    This was at the Ritz Carlton. You know his ass couldn't afford to get a drink there.


    I cannot stand cops.

    That would be the safest way to do it.

    I can't believe how pussy the cops are these days.

    Shoulda spoken up when their politician bosses were escalating things with their stupid drug war. Thats where this **** started.

    How do we know those kids weren't building that tree house to use a launch pad for drone rockets to wipe out Disneyworld?!
    It's nothing more than X's and O's.
