....it seems we will have to wait for our PHD in psci or something so people can finally approach our rationale respectfully and attack it, rather than the person behind it. But hell there has to be people that can be a daily part of busy lives to understand these types of issues!
><....wait there are people like that....Noam Chomsky! but if that is too fricken boring then go watch south park! but if that is too fricken childish then go watch the daily show! but if that is too fricken "leftist" then its ok. Your one of those people screwing us guys over and are probably being talked about in the above mentioned shows. Ooooor more likely your life has been and always will be set, and since it is, it must mean everything is how it should be, amirite.
See it is one thing to disagree with someone and it is a very very very different thing when you can not explain or counter why you disagree so you attack the person and not the arguement.
The issue was our rights and the laws. Some disagreed with the way we exercise those rights and laws and believed there is a time and place.
In this particular situation the person with the camera was "pushing his rights", "screwing us law abiding citizens", "wasting a good cops time", "looking to make a scene" etc....or he was "using his rights like he can and did", "proving a point of how cops should be officers of peace not law and not escalate a situation",etc....
Those were the arguments and counter arguments. Then the issue shifted in general of "if you have nothing to hide, dont " and another set of arguments and counter arguments emerged. Fine still OK here. But then when all party's were heard, some began making fun and attacking the people behind them. This is a big no no, your being an asshole, in my book. Also keep in mind that you can attack what is believed by people, but if your going to attack it, use rational and logic, or find fault in in theirs.
