Why did the cop turn the camera off towards the end and why was the cop wanting to do something on the guy's computer?
Is it really that easy to convince local governments to do military style raids on people's private property, detain people at gunpoint, etc? ...

Your father probably didn't think of you as anything other than his son. This sounds like petty sibling bull shite.
For some reason middle-aged siblings turn into huge a-holes when their parents die. They wall want to think of themselves as more important, and they all want to believe that they d...

Asians are going to lose minority status soon. There's already a lot of complaining that Asians count towards AA quotas and are taking educational and job opportunities that would otherwise be given to blacks.
In NYC they use purely academic criteria to determine who gets spots meant for minorit...

Central was immediately a better school district when they stopped bussing kids in from the ghetto. This was before central had a chance to build new schools or to implement policy changes.

That's the whole point of this thread. People want to justify reducing freedom because they'll say freedom is leading to undesirable outcomes. People need to "prove" that drug legalization is having positive outcomes.
