Quote from: Billy's bayonet on November 26, 2021, 02:23:09 AMDo we really need such laws? Apparently so. It seems that prosecutorial misconduct is such nowadays that it might be necessary to affirm the right of self defense to prevent railroading of those faced with the choice of defense of their person or getting killed or injured. IMHO It should be a federal law as based upon the right to "Life Liberty ad Persuit of Happiness" as well as the second amendt which implies the right of self defense with a firearm. But not all self defense is with a firearm.I believe there is cause for charges related to malicious prosecution (many jurisdictions have such laws) or perhaps tampering with or witholding of evidence if not outright perjury.
Quote from: RV on November 26, 2021, 06:34:44 AMI'm not sure that more laws will help. If we have liberals who flaunt, ignore or fail to enforce the laws we already then more laws on the books will not help. It is illegal to commit election fraud and yet, that is exactly what was done. Immigration laws for example are routinely ignored and Washington encourages laws to be ignored and does nothing about it. Liberals even want to pay people with tax payer dollars to ignore immigration laws.
Quote from: TboneAgain on December 10, 2021, 02:57:21 AMGood points. If laws are selectively enforced, as they so often are now, there is no law. Just as the Left denies the existence of absolute truth, it bristles at the concept of absolute law.In any case, this nation is already the most law-burdened in the history of the planet. Federal prosecutors brag that every citizen is guilty of committing multiple crimes every day; it's just a matter of finding the right statute (or, increasingly, the proper administrative regulation or rule) to bring to bear. Sol Wachter, the former Chief Judge of New York State, made his now-famous boast - that a motivated district attorney "could indict a him sandwich" - almost forty years ago.The US ranks second (to only Israel) among countries in terms of lawyers per capita. The US national average is roughly 400 per 100,000, but the rate in New York is over 800/100,000 and in the District of Columbia it exceeds 8,000/100,000! Out of every twelve DC residents, one is likely to be a lawyer. We have long ago passed the point where litigating and legislating combined to form a self-sustaining industry.

Quote from: T Hunt on December 10, 2021, 01:25:10 PMThere's a time limit of something like 5 minutes to edit your post, then it is permanent. Otherwise libs try to go back and change what they said when we catch them in a lie.
