Law enforcement should always maintain an even temperament. Foolish things can happen when they don’t. All he the officer had to do is state the facts. Get fact-for-fact with the citizen. For example, someone has already referred to Michigan DSP v. Sitz. That is a decided, landmark case on the issue, whether we agree with the decision or not.
I actually like the idea of keeping LE honest. Cameras, tough questions by those that know the law, etc. We should never get so weak-kneed that we forget our rights in the process. But we should not look for trouble, either. I don’t know anything about the area where the checkpoint occurred. They may have an ongoing problem with drunks killing people. None of us want that to happen.

The “Extreme Caution” / “Frightening” disclaimer oozes PC. Why assume some people are such wimps they can’t handle the video? In the future use SHOCKING [like the tabloids] and move on. Thanks.

Symbol for Freedom. Invitation to Liberty. We already have the unalienable right to keep and bear arms. We do not need the Second Amendment to maintain that right. 2A merely codified what is God Given.

Simple. They’re right.

So what if it is an ‘attack’ on the Tea Party, Conservatism, or American Pie? Consider the source. The only people that buy their propaganda, if that’s what it is, are inconsequential. Really, it’s that simple. There are better topics where we should focus our attention. No offense intended, but that movie’s intent is child’s play.

Oops. Hit the A instead of the S. No doubt most of you know what I meant.

Where’s the Sheriff? I understand “powers” vary widely from county to county, but it’s time for the Sheriff’s Department to test their metal. Get a warrant and serve process on the agency that kidnapped the baby; CPA in this case. Arrest the kidnaper.
The Constitution is for every American, not just for this one or that one.....
Conservatives believe teachers should have armed protection......
Democrats believe teachers are too stupid to own a gun......

“… why does something like the Sandy Hook tragedy happen? Simply stated: I do not know.”
These things happen –simply stated– because we live in a fallen world. Why doesn’t God intercede? My question is, how do we know he hasn’t? Most tragedies can be worse. I also believe life would be mostly meaningless if there weren’t trials and tribulations. Do I have all the answers? of course not. Just sayin’.
How do we know he hasn't interceded? Because 20 innocent little children were shot to death, that's how.

Obama’s hope and change became smoke and pain. No more.

Obamalings don’t care about the truth, so fact checks won’t affect them. All we can hope for is that those that are undecided, with a lick of sense, will see through the lies of Obama and his ilk. Get out the vote! It’s the most important vote in American history. Thanks to Glenn Beck and his crew for broadcasting the truth. Keeping up with all of Obama’s lies must be exhausting.

Take all the hate and discontent over Kelly’s recent comment to the extreme, and you have the sort of thinking that fueled Iran’s decision to shutdown Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani’s web-site. Seriously, if you’re intellectually honest, you know that to be true.
Kelly spoke her mind. Good for her. There is no doubt; the least government is the best government. Hope her sales continue to skyrocket.

Chaffee has no common sense. Roger Williams would kick his PC-butt out of Rhody. That state was founded on religious freedom. Chaffee needs to put down his pen and quit trying to re-write history.

Another attempt to codify so-called “social justice.” Of course there is nothing “just” about their flavor of justice.

Good job. One less criminal to keep. Hopefully they won’t even bother the Grand Jury on this one.

Ultimately, “Society” will. But, hopefully you know that, and your question was more rhetorical than anything else.

The guy jest loves to use metaphors… here’s a metaphor, Obama. Your pencil has run out of lead.
