Re: 'Farthest thing from liberal is libertarian'

I had not considered the idea that libertarians believe government is evil and most science is funded by government therefore science is evil. If libertarians do not actually believe this, they should speak up.

Re: The Hypocrisy of Deadly Force

My question is why does the military have stricter rules about shooting their weapons in combat than police have about shooting their weapons during encounters with suspects.

No, the rules are stricter on police in "combat" [more]

But more to the point, you might be interested in a piece in the Times last Wednesday by the Dean of the School of Law at UC Irvine, titled "How the Supreme Court Protects Bad Cops." He makes the case that the Supreme Court has moved to [more]

Re: The Hypocrisy of Deadly Force

And that same poster noticed that you had no reply to the fact that you were wrong about the military rules of engagement.

I was not wrong. You posted ROE's for combat situations which are very different from ROE's in non-combat [more]

Re: The Hypocrisy of Deadly Force

A police force is supposed to interpose itself into conflicts among non-combatants, not leave them be. If you're in the military, you're not there to resolve intra-civilian arguments or enforce domestic laws - you can mostly leave non-combatants [more]

The Hypocrisy of Deadly Force

This is NOT about race so if you're thinking about arguing it on that point, please try to restrain yourself.

Re: Scan barcode, see company's political leanings

I don't see what is wrong with it. Everyone already knows CEOs and companies are partisan. Isn't it better to know how much and where their loyalties lie?

Re: "Cops" vs. Cops

Possibly yes to all.

That's why each such shooting incident (or use of other deadly force incident) needs to be reviewed.

I think the cops wearing a body camera idea is worth pursuing in the current tech age.

Re: "Cops" vs. Cops

Well, the bad guy did. The crew member was collateral damage.

Your point?

As for the bad guy, I don't expect cops when confronted to be able to or have to ID the weapon that is or could be pointed at them.

Re: In search of libertarians

I think Rand Paul is the most skewed Libertarian of them all. His views on many issues change with the political wind. Which means he is a consummate politician not a true Libertarian. Pretty much like all politicians on both sides of the aisle. [more]
