Well, the cop would be found not guilty of killing him but would the protesters charged with the accessory of resisting arrest?

I would allow homeowners to dictate who could park on the curb attached to their property (excluding public utilities and Safety Services; Fire and Rescue, law enforcers, etc.).

LOL, dude, that's been ongoing since the Eighties. Like the Judicial system here if you don't have the bucks you won't get decent service. It's only a matter of time your wish will come true. Suggest you don't hold your breath though.

So... first amendment rights until you disagree with the police? Nice Orwellian nightmare you got there.


Not at all. You see, first it would be on the police to prove the person was resisting arrest and on the protesters to prove he was not.

The point isn't to limit free speech, but to limit outright support for criminal activity.




What you are saying is that if you disagree with the state authority on its judgement of a situation, they are free to lock you up for voicing that opinion. That is a blatant violation of not only the freedom of speech and the freedom of the press, but also the freedom to peaceably assemble. It doesn't matter if the police have to "prove it' or not, it's the matter that you are literally locking someone up for having and sharing an opinion because the police do not agree. The police are not faultless, and they can easily be abusive and poorly trained for a situation and the court system can be unfairly biased, this excuses such things from even being discussed, let alone addressed.


Hey, slow your roll. I'm not talking about locking people up. I'm talking about a small fine.

The point isn't to make shit stupid.... but to PREVENT stupid.

Now, other than that, you have your opinion and I have mine. BUT, if you're gunning for police that shot a man in a split second decision when he was resisting arrest.... and that can be proven by a court of law... you're openly supporting criminal activity and anarchy. So, a small fine isn't going to make that go away, but it WILL prevent people from using it to stir up bullshit.


Well that's, better? But even then, yes we do have our opinions, that's why I'm trying to talk about it ^.^', I think to say anyone who disagrees with killing a person trying to get away from the police is blatantly supporting anarchy is a bit much. I think what most people have a problem with is the killing part. It's unnecessary to kill someone because they resist arrest when there are other ways to incapacitate them, especially if why they are running is something minor or relatively so. And sometimes the court is the one with a ton of bs, police regularly get away with excessive and unnecessary force, so fining people for disagreeing to me seems pretty extreme and jumping to conclusions.

Sure sure, but then you aren't protesting a split second decision made by an officer in a tough situation at all, you're protesting the courts, and that's something else entirely.

This isn't to discourage protesting, but to stop people from stirring up shit about the wrong shit.

Neither would be charged, because you can't charge someone with a crime you cannot prove.

Allow an open door for immigration. A part of America's immigrant problem is that they are afraid to leave because it is harder to get back in than to just stay. This also allows more opportunities for companies to outsource jobs TO America.

Raise minimum wage and require less working hours. Doing this will allow people to have more time and money to flood the economy with their newly earned money. Part of the Problem is money and time is tight an no one has the luxury of frivolous spending.

Police accountability. Part of the problem we have now is that people don't trust the law. We need to reestablish that trust by holding police accountable for excessive force.

Legalize Marijuana; doing this takes power from the drug cartels that prey on the weed as a gateway drug to push bigger and more dangerous product.

Lower mandatory minimums for drug charges. There are a lot of people who have done so much worse than possession of drugs doing less time. This needs to change.

Fix the Electoral College; It is an antiquated system that makes votes count more or less depending on the state you live in.. It is unfair that because you live in a rural area your vote has 20 times the power than if you lived in a major city.

Allow convicted Felons to Vote after rehabilitation. These people have paid their debt to society and have learned hard lessons many people never learn. Sometimes a felony conviction is as easy as being in the wrong place at the wrong time.

Trans-Rights; this would be my special interest. There is no denying that Trans-rights has a lot of impact on me and I find it hard to be part of such a stigmatized minority.

Equal the playing field for minority groups. Find ways to give minority groups enough of an advantage while not taking away their independence. Sometimes trying to give too much to minority groups may end up doing more harm than good; find the middle ground to raise them to the same starting point as the majority groups.

Build rent free housing for the homeless. States spend more on emergency treatments and funding shelters than what it would cost to build a bunch of houses for them. Give them time to get themselves together before expecting them to pay for their house. It is hard for homeless people to get jobs to pay for a home. Giving them a home rent free so they can get back on their feet and become a productive member of society has been proven to work in the state of Utah.

But that's just me....

I don't... agree with it per say, but I would tolerate if this carried at the very least two requirements (amendments if you will): A: body cameras on police at all times. B:The cameras would be retrieved by a designated court official traveling to the scene of the incident, the footage of such things being readily and publicly available and easily accessible within 24 hours, with all uncut footage from at least that day to prevent tampering or only showing partial footage.Strict, but the way I see it the added trouble will keep police from being trigger happy and then hiding behind the court, and we can instead invest in non lethal (or at least mostly non lethal) weapons and training for police officers; we spend far too much time with police at the gun range in this country and far too little in situation deescalation training.

Good, I was hoping that would be the case but I'm still iffy on the concept in practice. The idea of trying to put consequences on what protesters protest still leads to a limit on freedom of speech, to me. While I certainly agree with the intention of stopping people from stirring up trouble over nothing it sounds like a road to hell paved with good intentions.

It's why I can't think of anything for this because I know if I had my way this country would turn into an awful poor dictatorship. if I ever got into politics I would need some opposite voices to hold me back from getting my way and ruining everything with my "good" ideas. Except, the Gifstapo that is the only idea that has no drawbacks whatsoever.

I agree with a few things, but not all.

Major issues would be:

Your min wage policy, which would basically decimate business and the economy. Small business, big business, all business. Ka-boom.

Police accountability - I feel like it'd end up a witch hunt that doesn't focus on real solutions, like more training, and would punish a whole lot of police who were really trying their best and just got forced into a bad situation. Basically, you wouldn't have any police at all, after about 2 months of this. I already know cops who quit because they were too afraid something would go south.

I honestly can't see any rights transpeople are denied by the government. Enlighten me. Yeah, it's tough because people are assholes, but that isn't the government's problem.

Electoral College. I COULD be wrong, but I feel like you want to make every vote count equally, across the board. I think that's a really terrible policy, unless we go back to a more State Power > Federal Power system. Why?

How would you feel if you lived somewhere with solid grey area, and everyone from those tiny blue areas got to make all of your policies for you?

Now, there are better systems, but it goes back to old school New US days, when you could only vote if you owned land. I would be willing to extend that to 'ONE person from EACH household.'

Me? I'd prefer the State Power route.
