I understand the logic. In a police state, the policing agencies have no responsibility to or liability from We The People. They are free to confiscate (larceny) at will. The police state agents can beat and kill just for the fun of it and all they have to say is they felt threatened and / or it was within the scope of their authorized duties. To be trained in lying and illicit revenueing has to carry a toll (-; hmmm ;-). Can all that brutal injustice and heinous immorality be that easy ?

Asset forfeiture comes to mind. It gives cops the power to steal anything you own for almost any reason, contrived or not.

I know, right?

It is a sad state of affairs. Martial law on the streets. The largest concentrations of population will suffer the most. Ground zero. Food and water after any disaster. This one will be self induced. Tyrannical democ police state. Based on growth and consumption rates in concentrated areas, The Elite, Little k, kings and little q, queens always see the demise coming. They set it up ! It is best to bury the crap if it piles up to high in one area.

Oh, Orson ... how did you get so bright and succinct ? ( Talk about 'hit the nail on the head !' )
