    Re: The Gary Johnson thread

    I saw an article a few months ago about the military dusting off Vietnam era turboprop planes for close air support. They can loiter longer and cheaper than something like a F-35. Plus they fly at...

    Re: The Gary Johnson thread

    There is room for the to cut spending and still have an effective military. I always like the Abrams Tank example. When you have Army Generals going to Capital Hill begging Congress not to buy...
  3. News Article: Re: Cop shoots caretaker of autistic man playing in the street with toy truck

    Police union now trying to justify it by saying the officer just had bad aim. Never mind they were told repeatedly the guy had a toy car in his hand not a gun. That rules out accidental...
  4. News Article: Re: Cop shoots caretaker of autistic man playing in the street with toy truck

    I highly recommend Rise of the Warrior Cop. I read it in 2013 when it came out. It seems even more relevant today. To me the most interesting part of the book was all the court cases he covers...
  5. News Article: Re: Cop shoots caretaker of autistic man playing in the street with toy truck

    Yep. I think I've posted it on NS before, but everyone should read Radley Balko's book on the subject. It is an interesting read on the history of police and his take on how we got to this point.

    Re: got hit by a car

    I mean look on the bright side. At least you CAN ride again. It may not be as soon as you want, but it could have been much worse. You really don't want to rush back after going through all the...
  7. Re: Breaking News: Multiple Police Officers shot in Louisiana

    LOL. Back to the military speak again. Okay police are perfect and don't kill innocent citizens. Right? Are you and all your thumbs up buddies police officers? Just curious.
  8. Re: Breaking News: Multiple Police Officers shot in Louisiana

    So why don't they wear riot gear on regular patrol? Give them tanks too while you are at it. They can't get killed in a tank. They are at "war" with the citizens anyway right?
  9. Re: Breaking News: Multiple Police Officers shot in Louisiana

    No. I didn't say anyone was "asking" for it. I'm saying this is the natural progression of escalation. When police stop thinking they are police here to protect and serve and start thinking...
  10. Re: Breaking News: Multiple Police Officers shot in Louisiana

    This is awful, but anyone who didn't see this escalation coming is blind. When cops talk about being at "war",march around with military style fatigues, and and use military weapons to police the...

    Re: The First Major News Story You Remember

    I was going to type the same thing. I didn't turn 5 until a few months later, but I remember sitting in the living room floor watching the news coverage play the explosion over and over.
  13. Re: TSA protects us .... from St. Jude patient (blind, deaf, paralyzed girl)

    I stand corrected. I will change my statement to include airport security in general. The screening process is pretty worthless.
  14. Re: TSA protects us .... from St. Jude patient (blind, deaf, paralyzed girl)

    The reality of the situation is TSA has never stopped an attack. Never. They didn't stop 9/11 from happening. At this point, there will never be another attack like 9/11 because the passengers...
  15. Re: TSA protects us .... from St. Jude patient (blind, deaf, paralyzed girl)

    TSA is a pointless waste of tax dollars. How many terrorist attacks has TSA stopped again?
