As We the People We must concur or die. each moment is an agreement to live in a
certain kind of world which is the way it's always been, but we pretend
that it isn't.
This was a sad thing to happen, and even if the young man was out of order it is
too bad such a thing happened. None of us reading really know what kind of a
situation occurred and how it was being responded to. Judging without the full
facts is a dangerous thing. Perhaps backup would have been a wise call for the
police officer and better compliance and patience on the side of the person
being stopped would have avoided this whole experience. Communities need to
work together to build understanding and avoid animosity among their people.
Can you imagine the conservative response if the government had reacted to the
Nevada ranching freeloaders with armored vehicles, snippers, and armed military
style swat teams?
