Lawless in Detroit - October 1, 2009, 09:49 AM

Apparently Detroit is the place to be if you want to ride around recklessly everywhere. The cops' on-board cameras don't work, their computers don't work (so they can't run your plates), and they are way under-staffed with over-filled prisons.

Detroit sucks. Probably the most depressing place I've been to in the country. The government should just set Detroit on fire and be done with it.

I have a wholly different view of this issue. I know that my bent is far too anarchist to satisfy most peoples sensibility of "order", but I am too libertarian to believe that arbitrary enforcement of laws through fear of reprisal will ever make for a smart, conscientious populace.

These cops shouldn't be impuning someones freedoms in the "land of the free" because he doesn't have licensure. Understanding that he is a "danger" there are far more people who have legitimately been allowed to conduct a car on public highways who represent a far greater liability.

I'm sorry... but when you've imprisoned so many people you don't have room any more, there's a bigger problem as to WHY??? Poor people turn to crime to subsidize their livlihoods. Pot convictions on baseless "wars on drugs" with no substantive results are clogging our prisons with people who's time would be far better spent on the side of the road for a weekend picking up the McDonalds bag they threw on the side of the road when they had the munchies Friday (Whisper and I have held many convo's on the effects of Cocain and Meth and I think imprisonment for dealers is legitimate... pot, not so much, it's a plant and relatively harmless and definitely medicinal).

Most of these people are not violent, are not even doing something wrong... just commiting crimes against the processes that allow our society to function in a relatively orderly way... these are not reasons for imprisonment... these are reasons to impress on them a responsibility to their neighbors through work.

Prisons breed better criminals, rarely the penitent. Good on this guy for prioritizing

And so began the thread where Benjamin got in an argument with someone... used large words most people didn't understand... alienated the opponent through sheer force of intellect... and the discussion degraded into mom jokes, which he also won.

Commence.
