    Re: Real-Life 'Purge' Expected In Louisville, Kentucky

    Did people not understand that The Purge was a movie about wealthy suburban white people taking one night a year to legally hunt down and murder the homeless?

    Progressives aren't trained to distinguish between fact and fiction.

    What on earth does this have to do with "progressives"?

    I don't see how that would be any different than a normal Friday night in Detroit. Police response to virtually any sort of crime in the city of Detroit is a joke.
    If you build a man a fire, he'll be warm for a day.

    If you set a man on fire, he'll be warm for the rest of his life.

    Anyone who thinks these people are being held properly accountable are not paying attention. While yes, I agree that our police need special weapons and tactics to react to certain scenarios, it has become for many police departments the standard reaction to just about anything. SWAT is being used constantly in no-knock raids, breaking doors/walls in the middle of the night to flash bang babies, shoot dogs, and drag the "perp" out into the street, when often times he wasn't the even the person growing the plant in the first place.

    Over the past few decades the militaristic capabilities of police departments has grown exponentially, but accountability and responsibility has plummeted. It's a dangerous combination and I think you know that. When police are firing on citizens less discriminately and with looser ROE than soldiers in afghanistan, something is wrong.
    If your definition of the militarization of police departments is what is bold, and not necessarily the equipment that they use, then I'm on board with that. After all, even if you took away the gear they've received from the military, they would continue to use such tactics with the gear that has always been available to them. This is why I was so happy with the ruling in Texas, where the jury found the man had every right to shoot the cop who barged into his home when they made no effort to announce they were entering the home.

    No it wasn't. It was a movie about anybody who wanted to, to break the law without repercussion. It wasn't just wealthy suburban white people - not by a long shot. They were just a small part of it.

    Well, the good news is that if it's scary and on Facebook, there's a huge probability that it isn't true. Plus, if criminal assholes were planning a crime spree, I doubt they'd advertise.
