  •  Today a public safety exemption. . . (6+ / 0-)

    . . .tomorrow an exemption because of my nationality or race. The day after that there will be an exemption because you don't like the way I look.  Thanks, but no thanks.

    We either respect human rights or we don't.

      You think their would ever be an exemption "because of your nationality or race"?

      Given the ruling was in 1984, that's a might gradual slope you think we're on...

      We were not ahead of our time, we led the way to our time.

      •  That exemption was created in a case (0+ / 0-)

        involving a suspect and police being in the same room, with a loaded gun the police were trying to find.

        Right now, we've got a guy in custody who does not pose any immediate danger to anyone.

        I love you stupid fucking fucks. Now stop poking at the dead cat on the table and get back to the issues.

          a hundred storage lockers?  How do you know he doesn't personally know 20 other terrorists out there who are planning another massive attack to occur next month, who've watched how Boston PD responded and learned things which will make it possible for them to kill 300 people next time?

            The hilarious thing is that your pants-wetting 24 plots aren't even time sensitive.

              The people on the ground will decide what questioning is necessary for safety reasons, if any, and a judge will rule if it was appropriate and therefore admissible.

              We were not ahead of our time, we led the way to our time.

                will be done for the best in this, the best of all possible worlds, under this, the best of all possible governments".

                The fact that you and I share citizenship in the same country makes me afraid.
