This law student has a polite but well-informed conversation with police officers. My suspicion is that this encounter would have ended very differently, maybe even with a little taser action, if the young man hadn't been so well-informed about the law. I think the police realized that they couldn't mess with him without serious repercussions.
With the TSA daily trampling the rights of American citizens for no "suspicious activity" other than flying somewhere, my confidence is being seriously eroded that conversations like this young man had with law enforcement officers, with this result, will continue to happen for much longer in this country.
People, if we are to retain our rights it is up to each of us, every time, no exceptions to speak up, to stand up.
Yeah...right about now would be good, libs....how about now?
We must not yield. We only have the rights we are willing to fight for. And if we aren't willing to fight for them when the fight is just a conversation with an ignorant, overbearing cop, will we be willing to fight for them when that cop is ready to shoot us for speaking up?
If not now...when?
If not us...who?
In the meantime....
