If that where the case than they have rounded up all the illegals.
nice try... the idiot arrested at Ft. Riley last week was at a Topeka Catholic church Easter Sunday armed with a sword and knife. Priest and several male parishoners talked him into leaving. When he was back later in the week, police were contacted and said he was 'on a watch list' but 'nothing could be done'
selective enforcement as it is applied today-- at the chief level rather than the street level-- is wrong. it smacks of bias. A cop on the street who chooses to intervene, stop the problem whatever it is, BUT to forego charges now days will get in trouble, because they (the chiefs and their political handlers) do the same thing but do not want independent thought in the rank and file.
There was no reasonable suspicion for the presence of marijuana just because a student argued for legalization... I believe the demonization of weed by our politicians is obvious and should never have been allowed to happen ('science' a la today's 'global warming')... good luck if 50 decides to search my home for illegal drugs, though.
This action was directly against the law. They don't have the right to bar someone from their own property while they wait for a warrant. Furthermore if you enforce a law that goes against the constitution and natural rights, then you are just as responsible as the legislators who put them in place and should be considered traitors to the nation. If they had any honor, they would refuse or resign.
Are you sure about that? It sounds to me like the cop was saying that the law "doesn't matter."
hauschild, according to the actions of Washington D.C., these LEO's can enforce or not whatever laws they feel like enforcing or not. They have set a precedent.
They violated her 4th Amendment rights

So the cops can't prevent a suspect from going into his residence and destroying his kiddie porn collection because he has :natural rights"? The Constitution's 4th Amendment is quite clear in purpose. To prevent "unreasonable" searches and seizures. So a Judge must find evidence,not proof, of a crime and some evidence ia at a specific location. The warrant is to bring forth that proof to the court. If the officer's allow free access to the location it almost defeats the warrant in the first place.
"The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things .." This is the standard.

Yeah, but change is just around the corner, right? Just a matter of electing a few more Republicans, right?

“… the American people are “absolutely starving” for an honest politician…”
I’ve found that there are at least 65,899,660 people who think otherwise.
I have to say I VOTED FOR MITT IN 2012 and I was ready to vote for him again in 2016. He won the vote in 2012!! Voter fraud, you name it. Mitt Romney is the only honest politician that could turn our country around. He didn't want to "drop out". He only did that so Jeb Bush could make a bid for it. He's HONEST. He's got virtue, integrity, compassion is a Savant in mathematics and has earned EVERY penny he's made. PLUS he's given millions away. America would get it's credibility back with our
allies and he and his wife are wonderful people. THEY walk the walk! He's NEVER CHEATED on his wife and in my book THAT says volumes about his character. HE IS AMERICA. He's what a president looks like and acts like! These other candidates are a joke and if we can't get him to change his mind, I fear we'll be in a bigger mess than we already are in. I'm going to do everything I can to get him back on the ballot.
Are you, by any chance, huffing gasoline right now?

Look on the bright side: Once these bottom-dwelling losers completely deep-six this nation, this pandering for slug votes will finally cease to exist. Too bad we have to go thru the hell (and will be solely responsible for any rebuild, should one occur) for it to finally happen.
Tired of it all. Nurse-maiding the worthless POS’s in this country and abroad; always the same types of people in both roles – the organizers/enablers/takers and the rest of us that have to pick up the tab.

Interested to find out what this country will be like in around 30 years when minorities are given free reign to pick and choose which laws they’ll obey.
The Bolsheviks are digging their own graves and are too jaded to realize it.

All this worry over math and logic, yet no thought given to the dwindling inner-drive of the youngsters. What good is it all if you’re producing a lot of slugs???

“There’s just no universe possible where you have enough money to live on”
Mike, you’re obviously not familiar with the government sector. These people take in a criminal amount of pension salaries, and for having done what?!?!? And, with the shape we’re in, they’re still not even cutting back. Stones, I tell ya. Some of the most worthless workers this country has ever produced get the most in the end.
Sounds like you got a rejection letter in your past. Hope things start working out for you.
That's not the case with everyone. I chose a 'government' job specifically because of the pension. I worked as a mental health counselor in a close security prison for years - full of daily stress and danger. I could have made much more money in the private sector with much less stress and danger, but at a young age I thought the pension outweighed the higher pay. Knowing what I know now I would make a different decision, but I have worked many long, hard, dangerous hours for my $1400 monthly pension and feel I've earned every penny of it.
I worked for the Navy for 30 years. I got 15 patents in electronics and controls in invented for weapons systems. I did computer modeling of weapon systems performance studies. My job was eliminated in the 1996 BRAC. I went to private industry at double my government salary. I work in private industry as a consultant for another 15 years. I earned that damned pension and it is not that much. I make more than the pension pays from my investments in spite of the FED and Obama have done to kill investment income. That comes from more education, strict personal discipline, and time served. Now I work in my shop making custom firearms and I'm having a ball.

Amazed how nobody understands you simply obey the law; and you remain with the living.
We expect this country to turn on a dime when 85% of people cannot comprehend fundamental rules of law???
You are correct, simply obey the law and you will not be charged with murder. Officers who kill indiscriminately will be held accountable. Officers that lie on official polices reports (felony) shall be held accountable. Don't you think that's true?
Thus says the naive person. Get with the real world champ.
For real?!? There is video of a cop murdering a civilian and your thoughts take you to obedience? Pathetic.
If he stayed IN the car , he might be in trouble, but not Dead. And the cop would be home with his family. There are no winners in this incident.
Oh yeah, except for the Justice Brothers !

Soon there will be no police officers willing to do anything and that’s when the bottom feeders will be allowed to persist and exponentially increase. Not gonna be enjoyable times for those who were raised properly.
I think we have reached the bottom feeders already. Sueee!
Re: "willing to do anything"
Am I to assume that you believe that LEO is there to "serve and protect"? If that is your position, then know that it's wrong. SCOTUS has already ruled that public employees are not accountable nor responsible for anyones safety. Thus your safety and mine are only up to ourselves – thus the reason why the rules of lethal force are equal to both government and citizen.
Now, some stats. There are an estimated 345M firearms in citizens hands with the average owner having 4 firearms in their possession, that would mean that roughly 1/3 the population armed. Many of those armed are vets with actual experience in a firefight and greater training than most officers. Will good people die? Yep, already do. Will people make bad decisions and kill innocent people? Yep, already do. However, as long as the individual is held solely responsible for their own safety and the safety of their family, the right of the person is to do what they can in defense of themselves shall not, and cannot be removed. Now, what we don't want is good citizens being killed by criminals and the state, as thats what we dealt with in 1775. Finally, there are 12M CCP, where it has been shown that those that are are less likely to break the law than LEO. Bottom line, I trust a citizen to protect themselves more than LEO to protect a citizen. That is the trust that has been broken.
Sadly, what needs to be done is a cleansing and a dispersion and realignment of the population. Forcing people of different cultures together, coupled with religious animosity is a recipe for disaster. Just look at the place.
I agree that soon there won't be near as many police officers. However, I live in a tiny southern town, and I have to say that if there weren't any police officers where I am, it would not affect things much at all. Here, its kind of like every man for himself. I mean, the police don't arrive in time to stop anything at all from happening. And, ironically, we have very little crime here. Last yr, an elderly woman (80's!)was attacked in her home by 2 men. She put one of them in prison and one in the grave. Not much has happened since then. And there are quite a few "thugs" around these parts!
People don't realize that Cops are the after effect of crime....seldom are they there to stop it.
I agree with your last sentence. For me, the number "officers" as in peace officers leas hard as they can in order to get the race/ civil war started.
This is not about the mother of the killer. This is not about the victim's past or his family. In a with good people, this would only be about the killing of this man. In a world of law and equal application of the law the actions of those employees that came on the scene and changed the murder scene to fit a narrative that justified this murder and the supervision that allowed this to happen would be the focus.
In a just world with a legitimate local government and law enforcement department none of the employees would help to cover up this murder.
The facts are clear. The motivations of the killer and post execution, his accomplices are also clear. The race of the victim is not relevant. The race of the killer is not relevant. The tears of the killer's mother or of the family of the victim are not relevant.
What is relevant to a society that has lost its' way because it purposefully deserted God and common sense is dealing with a killer.
all they have to do is follow the law...not so hard. If one of us had done this, there would be not question of guilt either. You can't be in fear for your life when the guy is running away.....8 rounds later leaves no question. It is pure murder
I can adapt quickly.
I myself am pro life, and view a bottom feeder as someone who assassinates another human being, unarmed, in the most cowardly way, in the back because he is assured in most cases (had there not been video) that the thin blue line would cover for his murder. I myself think that this type of person should not own a gun, let alone be behind a badge when I have kids that could get scared, make a stupid decision, and be killed for fleeing a bad situation. It is true that a kid, or the individual that fled might be a legitimate criminal, but our justice system was never designed for an officer to be judge, jury, and executioner. The officer clearly had the mans information when he went to his car, and since the warrants were for a non violent act, for him to run would simply add fleeing to his warrants, and he would have eventually been caught and charged, instead he paid for his life for a class B felony. Then there is the issue with the officer conveniently picking up the taser and dropping it at his dead body, this to make it legitimize the shooting of an unarmed man.
Had the man reached inside his wasteband and turned, then perhaps this would be legitimized, but he was in no threat, and you cannot end a persons life for running, as running is not a crime.
There is no doubt that being a police officer is a tough job, but the kill first mentality is not what officers should have on their minds when dealing with non violent people.
