Oh Hauser...there you go again! Don't you realize that a stronger, more autonomous police force will keep us all safer? Dont let stupid little procedural issues like search-n-seizure laws get in the way of keeping my children safe! I hope you dont become one of those freaks who waves the old "constitution" around like it means something in 2008. I mean...its not like the British army is still here...right?

Look dude...I've got my flat-panel, plasma TV world all secure for me and mine. Please dont rain on it...OK?

I think I'd rather take my chances in a society with a police force than in a society without one.

As would I Eddie, HOWEVER...................

It has become commonplace now for police to stop people for absolutely no valid reason and search them (after gaining their "consent") in the mere hopes of finding contraband, unlicensed weapons, etc.

Police performance should be measured in terms of how much crime (against people or their property) they prevent, and how much they have gained the trust and support of the communities they serve, not how many arrests they can make.

Have you ever wondered how many young people unnecessarily damage their futures because of an easily prevented search and it's resulting arrest? One stupid misdemeanor on your record, especially a drug charge, can exclude one from MANY career options later in life. People need this knowledge to protect themselves.

Should I present this to the local school board and ask them to consider making this part of their civics class? \:\) hehe Oh, wait, forget it, they're too busy drug-testing their students right now to bother with this.

I got 5 right, but by next year, that will dwindle still further.
We live in a society where we are all under suspicion, and surveillance anyhow,

Same here Eddie...but we are rapidly losing our police forces and gaining militarized forces.

I got 5 right. This is a great resource and is good information to know for every citizen. It's so easy now, with the popularity of today's crime-dramas, to buy into the mentality that all police action is thoughtful and good, and that police always act with the best of intentions. Not always so.
