Meh. Lew Rockwell gets the vapours. Film at 11.

I think that he sees conspiracies behind every rock. Makes it harder to identify the real conspiracies.

So when does the mayor or town council fire this fascist police chief? The 4th Amendment does apply to places like Arkansas. Serious abuse of power.

Our 4th amendment rights went out the window with the establishment of the TSA.

Do you think the City Council has voted to remove the “Welcome to Paragould, Arkansas” from the surrounding highways? Just imagine what this “Brownshirt Cop” is doing to local property values.

Um, property values in backwater Arkansas probably won’t be affected much, they can’t be worth much as it is.

How can we make any judgement without knowing whether this cop is a racist right wing teebaggr or dedicated to The People and getting guns off the streets and into the right people’s hands?

It doesn’t matter. He can’t do what he wanted to do. Period. It’s against the law.

it’s against the law to drive drunk, enjoy certain herbs, abuse pharmaceutics, rape, kill, pillage, and burn, but people can still do it. and do do it.

Yes, kinda hard to utilize your bounty when it’s burnt to a crisp.

I read last night that the city offices were besieged by the commoners, and he backed down.

Surely Bill Clinton will make an appearance and calm things down. 😉

Good Point, Strina. Wonder how long it will take the law abiding citizens of Paragould to start protesting… or do they dare? What jurisdiction, I wonder, does the Gov have if this gets out of hand. Actually, this is out of hand.

Here’s a question. Is Arkansas a CCW state? If so, does martial law trump CCW laws?

It’s downright scary that I’m even asking these questions.

I read an update that citizens flooded the mayor’s office and he “backed off” and said no one will be “required” or “arrested” for refusing to show ID when asked…. I think Arkansas residents will raise a stink over this once its implemented.
