All of them.
I have a huge respect for Claire. However, I feel compelled to present the opposite view, even though it may alienate me from her.
LEAP may be a great organization, but ask your local Sheriff’s office if they have ever heard of them. These are the guys we will meet on the street, …when Claire Wolfe time comes…or before…
Then, ask the LEAP members if they swore an oath to defend the Constitution of the united States of America. Next, ask them if that includes the Bill of Rights. Now ask them if they have ever detained, cited or arrested someone who has not committed a crime (a crime, ‘mala in se’, being defined by having a individual person as the victim…; What? You didn’t know that is the definition of a crime? Everything else is simply a regulatory violation, ‘mala prohibita’.). You will find that they do it every day….in violation of the Constitution (usually the 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th, 8th and 9th Amendments) they swore to defend…
..well…you get the idea…
The reason? To profit the state.
While LEAP may be anti drug prohibition, their members still assault the Constitution and everything it stands for, on a daily basis. These guys are no more deserving of respect than the petty tyrants on Capitol Hill.
The police forces of Amerika are un-Constitutional. They represent the standing army that the founding fathers feared and prohibited. The only way to tell the difference between a police officer and the soldiers in Iraq, is the donut crumbs on the coppers uniforms. Since our current Prez considers the Constitution to be nothing more than a “goddamned piece of paper”, it isn’t too surprising that the people (voters, an off-breed of sheep) who think they put him there, believe likewise.
“… the only purpose for which power can be rightfully exercised over any member of a civilized community against his will is to prevent harm to others. His own good, either physical or moral, is not a sufficient warrant. He cannot rightfully be compelled to do or to forbear because it will be better for him to do so, because it will make him happier, because in the opinions of others to do so would be wise or even right. These are good reasons for remonstrating with him, or reasoning with him, or persuading him, or entreating him, but not for compelling him, or visiting him with any evil in case he do otherwise. “
