That's why A) you don't take public transportation and B) you carry a god damn gun. Oh, and C) don't live in a shit-hole like New York City. Personal responsibility my friend, personal responsibility.
I think you missed the part where law enforcement is part of the government.
No, you're still wrong. It's "sudo modme Score:5, Insightful".
So what you're saying is you want the current system where the police are the ones monitoring the police and we just have to trust that they aren't corrupt. It doesn't need to be made public, but there damn sure needs to be a committee of non-government employees who monitors the video / evaluates all complaints against the police.
If the police actually acknowledged that the Fourth Amendment existed, it would require a warrant. That's literally no different from demanding everyone be fingerprinted and that cops can routinely stop you and check your prints to see if you're wanted for any crimes.
So you don't think people should suffer consequences for their actions?
I'm sure Michael J. Fox heard the news and started quivering in anticipation.
If you're too dumb / lazy to try and make an informed decision, you deserve to be ripped off.
If there's one this history has taught us, it's that giving more power to the government always results in more freedom!
Wait, no, no, that's never happened.
Someone needs to take the idea for the Courier and make an Android or Ubuntu based version of it. I've never been one to get excited over Microsoft products (though Windows 7 is pretty nice), but the Courier preview they put out a few years ago had me ready and willing to fork out some cash.
I should preface this with the fact that I buy lots of media (movies, tv shows, books, and video games). How exactly is pirating something I don't find worth paying for going to cause people to lose money? I used to buy plenty of music when I was younger, but these days I just don't find much that interests me and I primarily listen to my old music that I ripped to mp3's years ago. Since I don't find any reason to buy say the new Lonely Island cd (my life is of equal quality with it or without it), how are they losing anything if I chose to download it? I don't find it worth my money, thus if piracy is not an option I won't buy it and if piracy is an option and I choose to download it, they're still getting zero income from me.
This should be good. How exactly does copyright infringe upon people's rights?
Actually, I've found that the problem with LCD screens only happens when reading on a low resolution screen. I used to have an Archos 101 Turbo G9 tablet with a fairly average resolution and didn't like reading on it much. Once I got a Galaxy S4 at 1920x1080 and later one of the new Nexus 7's at 1920x1200 resolution, I no longer have any problem reading on a phone / tablet for extended periods of time. In fact, I usually read a few hours a day (in a row) on my tablet now.
Yes, but try using the Constitution as a defense after trigger happy government agents have shot you multiple times (and your dog too).
I'm not sure if it's still working this way, but at least for a very long time encryption algorithms and software were classified as "munitions" in order to keep American developed encryption methods from being exported to other countries.
