It Couldn’t Happen Here

Oh really?

Many of the ideas behind US legislation originates in Europe and the UK. So you better believe that this scares me. If such random searches were to happen here, they would be, of course, for our own good.

Isn’t what they always say? Who cares if it hurts? Who cares if your rights are violated? Who cares if the presumption of innocence has been removed from procedure? Stand still, be quiet, and take it because it’s for your own good.

    As long as we refuse to use racial profiling in the war on terrorism, we will be subjected to searches of EVERYONE for the “good of all”.

    It’s nanny state feelie good bullshit designed more to not insult one specific group than to really help all of us.

    It’s also the gov’t pretending to do something while knowing that what they’re doing will actually, you know, do nothing.

    I couldn’t agree with you more. This 1984 Big Brother mentality needs to stop and truly effective policies need to be used.

    Oh yeah, one of my favorites was the posting of National Guard soldiers on either end of the Golden Gate Bridge right after 9/11. So they could, like, shoot a 747 out of the air with an M-16 before it hit the bridge. I mean, WTF???

    I wrote a letter to the SF Comical suggesting that they give them radar guns so they could monitor speeders on the bridge and use the citation income to offset the cost of guarding the bridge.
