simple truth is (at least) half the criminal cases in this country are health-care issues....either drug-abuse or mental health or both. essentially we have a heavily armed group of government thugs roaming the streets attacking sick people.
Well said. Honestly, the sheer overreaction to drugs and the utter brazen attitude that police have, is really what makes me want to see some Oath Keepers just shut down the police (as an idea, not specifically promoting that group). Here's an example of what makes me hate the attitude of the police.
The decision (to continue a state of emergency in Ferguson) came after two nights of relatively peaceful protests, with the St. Louis Country police reporting no arrests or reports of injuries during a small demonstration by several dozen people Tuesday night into Wednesday morning.
"I am pleased to report our law enforcement officers have established order while preventing further acts of violence in Ferguson," said County Executive Steve Stenger, in a statement. "It is because of their ability to maintain order that I find it prudent to continue the state of emergency for at least the next 24 hours."
Seriously: The cops did an awesome job at putting down the rabble and because of this, we should continue a state of emergency
so that they can continue to put down the rabble.
A point in which they had an opportunity to say, you know, "thanks for not being violent with the protests, just to ensure your safety we'll keep on guard one more night and then kick off to our respective clan meetings
