  •  That letter is a load of crap. (5+ / 0-)

    There's nothing to be confused about. If one "liked" the orders from last week because they came from the administration, then one should "like" the orders from that same administration this week.

    The thing that pisses me off is that police are the same blue-collar, hourly wage citizens that teachers, firemen, librarians, and yes, air traffic controllers are. They function under the same Constitution as all of the above, and they are supposed to be smart enough to understand its writs and implications. If they're not, then they're not smart enough to be permitted to carry a gun and have the power of arrest.

    If they're so confused about what they're supposed to be doing, then have them answer this: is it my duty to roust citizens doing nothing more than exercising their 1st Amendment rights even if there are a lot of them? One answer makes clear how they should behave, the other makes clear that they don't belong there or in law enforcement generally.
