“Progress is Providence without God. That is, it is a theory that everything has always
perpetually gone right by accident. It is a sort of atheistic optimism, based on an
everlasting coincidence far more miraculous than a miracle.”

I love the "IT'S THE LAW FOLLOW IT, ANY PUNISHMENT IS JUSTIFIED BECAUSE IT'S THE LAW"
I guess we shoudln't be hearing any more people complaining about the Health Care Bill or the new Mandate, because IT IS THE LAW.

Using money and resources, violence and weapons, and imposing sentances on people for MARIJUANA is ridiculous.
Not all drugs should be legal, the harms of the drug should be weight against the harms of the criminalization of the drug (both prohibition and drugs cause problems, the issue is how much of a problem these cause relative to each other)
In the case of marijuana, it's a no brainer. Methamphetamine, Heroin, Crack, these are different stories.
You kick down the front door of a house, of course the dog is going to act up and bark, hell it's a dog. I understand sometimes when a dog is going attack an officer this is necessary, but still...
I love dogs, people may argue that the pit bull was "acting aggressive", but what about the Corgi?
Oh wow I can just imagine a vicious deadly corgi harming a team of SWAT officers in full gear.
SWAT team members encountered a pit bull upon entry, held back and then fatally shot the dog, police say. Officers said the dog was acting in an uncontrollably aggressive manner. A video of the raid shows that a shot was fired upon entry, but the pit bull was not wounded until later.
Poor intelligence, poor information, poor judgment, and no doubt a lot of money was spent to conduct this raid, and for what? So a guy wouldn't smoke a joint and watch Family Guy?
For the love of God...

The question is: Does the punishment fit the crime? Does the enforcement actions fit the crime?
Using a can of Air Freshener to de-stink a shirt that you don't have time to wash is technically against the law (using such a product in a way not according to the usage on the label), should we begin conducting raids and shooting animals for that?
Should states be spending millions of dollars to enforce that?
This is straight up stupidity.
Getting drunk in your home is perfectly legal but an alcoholic parent who is wasted on liquor every night is BY FAR a greater danger to a child than a parent who smokes a joint after work. Anyone who's been exposed to these drugs knows this is obvious.

I saw a video posted the other day of someone demonstrating Obama's fiscal policies and in that video they cut a penny into 4 pieces. That is against the law. Should we send SWAT over to his house?
Jesus watch the video and listen to the number of shots that are fired. These are trained professionals, experts with firearms, how many shots does it take to down 1 dog?
