I was actually really impressed with how the officer handled the situation. As far as the "free inhabitant" is concerned, she would totally be right....if this was the 1770s.

Radical feminism at work. Probably a spawn of the Tumblr's deepest pits of fire.


I don't think it was feminism, because she started out trying to defend her male partner not having a driver's license because he was also a 'free citizen'. I agree with the others that she sounds like a five year old trying to convince her parents that she doesn't have to eat her vegetables. Because of that, I can't shake the feeling that she is somehow mentally altered or that she has just been around the wrong people.

Meh, when I think of radical feminism though, I honestly picture this. A woman screaming rape over nothing. I'm a traditional feminist and all, but I certainly recognize there are loonies on the radical end and they really aren't far off from this. It's a terrible representation of feminism, but it's often what people first relate a woman like this to. It really can't be helped because there's a shred of truth in it.

I'm sure she needs help, it's truly a wonder there are people out there like that. She's got problems, but there's a lot of people that refuse to comply with police and what way they can. She was certainly trying to make him look bad using the camera. She wanted this to be a news story in her favor and it's unfortunately becoming more common these days. Luckily the officer didn't give her the footage she wanted.

I like to think of that section merely as 'extremists' because calling them feminists brings down the whole movement. The point of feminism is to give equal rights to women, and false rape accusations merely makes her the enemy of feminism and all women.

So what happens when one free inhabitant commits a crime against another free inhabitant?

Is it like the paradox of the unstoppable force meeting the immovable object?

Radical, extremist, either works for me!

There's a lot of female enemies of legitimate feminism lol. She won't be the first or last, certainly.

You've created a paradox.

I haven't read up on it or anything, but if laws don't apply to free inhabitants, that would imply they have no laws, so one free inhabitant literally cannot commit a crime against another because there are no defined crimes or laws. The police officer was right when he said it would be anarchy. XD

Exactly why it is stupid to even try to claim that law as a loophole.

I am guessing if the law was initially in place it was probably to protect Native American rights or something like that. In this day and age a law like that would result in having a bunch of Makishimas running around.



If you don't know who that is, he is the villain in an anime called Psycho-Pass. Psycho-Pass more or less is about a country with an automated law enforcement system, and because of a bug he is immune to it. So he essentially exists outside of the law while everyone else is subject to it.

What on earth was that about? Was she quoting the Articles of Confederation? The document that was phased out like 250 years ago?

That's pretty ridiculous.

While I do think abuse of police authority is a legitimate problem, obviously it's not always a problem. If you think you're above the law, then you definitely need to get that out of your mind as quickly as possible. Not only is such a mentality, quite frankly, stupid - but it also insults people who are true victims of unlawful conduct and misuse of authority.

Lol - Articles of Confederation! Might as well quote the Code of Hammurabi

That officer deserves a standing ovation for the way he handled the situation. That woman has an IQ lower than a rock, free inhabitant?
