It is already the case, it is called Spoliation of Evidence.

IRS found that out when they "lost" the emails ordered turned over. They discovered that a prosecutor did not even have to prove it was intentional, it is presumed to be intentional if it happens after the request is made.

Suddenly, those emails are just rilly rilly hard to find, not lost.

Well, we have been so successful at lowering taxes half the population pays only 2.5% of the tax burden. Not per person, the whole group.
You can't reduce the federal tax burden effectively unless someone makes 66K or more. The top 10% pays 70% of the bill.

So all tax reduction bills tend to benefit the "rich" by definition.

You must be joking. Google 55mph.

The Emergency Highway Energy Conservation Act was a bill in the U.S. Congress that enacted the National Maximum Speed Law.[10] States had to agree to the limit if they desired to receive federal funding for highway repair. The uniform speed limit was signed into law by President Nixon on January 2, 1974, and became effective 60 days later,[11] by requiring the limit as a condition of each state receiving highway funds, a use of the Commerce Clause of the United States Constitution.[12]

As a Republican, I 100% agree with the idea and want it to happen.

I also want codified in that same law that all citizens are able to video officers for any reason at any time if they can do so from pubic property or private property they are allowed to do so, and are not physically hampering what is going on.

Any attempt to keep the public from recording or interfering with that recording is de facto proof of violating the civil rights of the photographer and the person that the officers are engaging.

And that's why, if you can, you go back to college to get a Bachelor or Masters degree when you get into your late 30's early 40's.

That is the worst possible advice you could possibly give, except I guess for killing yourself.

That is when instead of SPENDING ALL YOUR SAVINGS ON SOMETHING THAT WILL NOT MATTER, you should instead think about switching to consulting and increasing your earnings. Can't find a full-job easily past 40-50? Learn to make people pay what you are really worth for the vast amounts of experience you have, because that is worth a lot, save up what you can and enjoy retirement eventually, possibly a lot earlier than you would have if you burned your money like an idiot getting a business degree so you could be unemployed with all the younger business majors who cannot find jobs either.

"They" is anyone who has the power to trigger the shutoff.

If that is the FBI, Homeland Security, Police, or even the Fire Department. Or Black Hat hackers, if it comes down to it.

Once it is in the hands of someone to use it to increase their power and control over others to achieve their goals, they will figure out a reason to use it.

Just as a sword incites someone to use it like a sword.
