Poll Problem

Posted By Lee Spain

There was a problem at my polling place. My gubernatorial ballot only offered me a crook, a communist, and a crazy to choose from! Maybe they should call it goobernatorial.... wink

Bill of Rights for everybody?

Posted By Lee Spain

Here's are a couple of questions to stir the pot: wink
1) Should the rights contained in our Bill of Rights apply to anyone on U.S. soil?
2) Should an illegal alien, a guest from a Middle Eastern country, a guest from a terror sponsor (like Syria), a guest from communist country, a guest from a NATO ally, and a guest from Canada all have the same rights while visiting the U.S.?
3) If not, should there be some other fundamental rights that apply to all human beings?

Re: Clinton secretly bugged

This can't possibly be true. If Clinton were spying on Princess Di, he would have been sure to get video! 8O

No Knock Warrants

Posted By Lee Spain

Time for a new topic . . . what do you guys think of 'No Knock Warrants'?

Pros:
- The perps don't have time to flush their stashes.
- The suspected terrorists might not be able to detonate their safehouse.
- By taking suspects by surprise they don't have time to arm themselves and it's safer for police.

Cons:
- Home invaders often ID themselves as police.
- Warrants not always proper. Plain-clothed Atlanta P.D. got in a gun battle a couple weeks ago and killed a little old lady after they battered down her door and busted in on a shoddily constructed warrant that was based on the word of a CI and not behavior actually observed by police.

My take -
- No knock warrants should only be used for arrest warrants where the criminals are thought to be armed or are wanted for violent crime.
- No knock warrants should only be executed by uniformed police who must activate patrol car sirens as they come through the door.
