I think it has more to do with the court seeing the officer every day--they are work mates. When a co-worker does something against the interests of the company I'm very leery of calling them on it and bringing it to the attention of our boss, even though that is what I *should* do.
A police cruiser is at least $125k dude.
$10k on equipment? You have obviously never shopped for line-of-duty grade tactical gear.
The problem is, markets are a function of government. There are no markets in nature. They only exist when there is someone to enforce contracts and guard transactions.
Complete bullshit. Markets are raw economics in action and economics is another word for nature. You should really consider having some books delivered to your mom's basement. What do people want? What are they willing to do to get it? ---economics
Big dog standing over meat and bones that every other dog wants. Other dogs see big dog and make a decision to go for the meat or not based on the costs and benefits. The economics part lies in the decisions of the dogs who do not posses the meat they need.
We as humans trade for the meat....that is a market.
Yes it does contribute to the money supply. Pick up a fucking banking book you douche. It didn't directly increase M1, thank god. But it did increase the money supply. Loans can indeed be issued on the increased supply from quantitative easing. We got lucky in that it did not happen. There is a latent fear of inflation unless that supply is reduced. It is difficult to put the jeanie back in the bottle when you are printing money to buy from the market--which is what happened here.
Indeed....an high school is too late. If they aren't able to take command of a ship at age twelve I believe the kid is already spoiled beyond repair.
One would argue it is all natural if you were watching all of this happen from a half million miles away
enough of your shitty facts and pedantry....we were having a good time working up a mob until you opened your big trap
and this whole time I was wishing I had parents
Yeah...I can a see a chat window popping up at work and instead of the usual begging for a quick code review it is a colleague asking for a shit sample. Probably wouldn't go over too well.
Dude, you need more than one yogurt. In this case you would need a lot of yogurt, probably more than you are willing to eat.
Because there is an aspect of your mind that can compare/contrast/question/fork your random thoughts based on an explicit will for something different. You mean to argue that you have never done that? Sometimes it is called: thinking outside the box. We have evolved to the point where we *can* do this...most people do not but the capability is there.
....and we could bring our kids to see them...and the visitors could feed them...and cheer when they do tricks. I think you are on to something.
Ostracism only serves to amplify and encourage bad behavior.
Society doesn't really embrace the notion of reform and cannot...reform is a personal choice. Punishment serves only as deterrent meant to sway the personal economic choice of certain crimes toward a decision more appropriate for everyone.
"I could smash this dude and take his money which is a positive benefit for me, but if I get caught I know I will be prosecuted and punished which is not worth a couple hundred dollars...never mind"
One could argue that the person who didn't reason and come to this conclusion was mentally ill and that most of the people in prison are indeed mentally ill.
