Do they all come together for an annual picnic?
I guess it's cheaper than getting real cops.
That might prove interesting.
I think the people are brave but misunderstand that American law is not based on ethnic backgrounds. we have worked so hard to separate religion from law in this country . we need to stop entertaining imported beliefs that conflict with current law. Not even the Vatican would be so bold to enforce their rules , imagine a catholic priest in a big hat jumping out of a van and knocking your hamburger out of your mouth for eating meat on Fridays.
America is a place for people to make the decision not to do something.. why do "freedom fighters" believe they can force their beliefs on people.
Forcing beliefs is not fighting for freedom.
but they seem to feel justified
Feelz don't make right.
Really? I'm the first one to say that police are too quick to shoot, but last year in NYC there were 23 people shot by police as of 24 December 2017, there were 936 shooting victims in the city in 2017. I don't think the police are the problem.
Agreed. I think the hiring and training processses flawed and inadequate, as well. But seriously, the number one problem is the very same as with the rest of society. They have been fed the same bullshit as everyone else through the MSM, and popular entertainment. The MSM tells everyone how very, very scaaaaary it is out there and entertainment tells everyone that the law can do whatever the fuck they want.
were gonna need back up... we have a one eyed, transsexual, red head , Ethiopian , conservative, atheist, albino, double jointed, ambidextrous, bi-polar suspect who speaks Spanish... do we have anyone who can properly arrest them?
says the cop
Not enough intersectionality...
wow that is an impressive resume hahahahaha
Now who is driving and paying for that? Do they stop to arrest females not covered properly? I couldn't hear or read the links.
Muslims in this case. Jews and Asians in the case of the other groups.
They aren't police, so they cannot arrest anyone. What precisely they do isn't specified in either article. I, too, am curious.
That depends on the jurisdiction.
Last I checked in Washington, you could perform a "citizen's arrest", but even then you couldn't legally detain the person.
Whether you can do so in a case of "Self defense" was a grey area.
Example: Forcibly pinning someone to the ground, to prevent them from going on a shooting rampage.
Nothing prevents the citizen from lying and saying the person has to stay.
Just like the law allows police to lie to suspects.
I always think of that Andy Griffin episode where Gomer chases Barney for making an illegal U-turn, yelling "Citizen's arrest! Citizen's arrest!"
barney sure did weirdo things.
Doubtful. Citizens arrests are legal, but discouraged.
Originally, "police" were private neighborhood patrols, paid for by the people living and working in the neighborhood. Since they didn't have jurisdiction outside their neighborhood, people decided it would be a good idea to have a city-wide police force. State troopers are actually "remnants" of military governorship over a territory.
