    EJ Dionne: Obamacare = ROADZ!

    WASHINGTON — Here’s a chance for all who think Obamacare is a socialist Big Government scheme to put their money where their ideology is: If you truly hate the Affordable Care Act, you must send back any of those rebate checks you receive from your insurance companies thanks to the new law.

    This is just common sense. If you think free enterprise should be liberated from Washington’s interference, what right does Uncle Sam have to tell the insurers they owe you a better deal? Keeping those refunds will make you complicit with Leviathan.
  • John||

  • Night Elf Mohawk||

    AUGUST 9--In an embarrassing screw-up, Florida prosecutors today accidentally distributed a post-mortem photo of Trayvon Martin as well as copies of George Zimmerman’s college records, material that Florida law considers confidential and exempt from disclosure.
    The documents were inadvertently included in supplemental discovery records distributed this morning by prosecutor Angela Corey’s office. The material was sent to a variety of media outlets, including TSG, that have paid fees to receive discovery provided by the government to Zimmerman’s lawyer.

    Easton police Chief Carl Scalzo told The Easton-Times the investigating officers acted appropriately, saying, “I think our guys did what they had to do in this instance,” Scalzo said. “At the end of the day, if we get a report of a panic alarm at a bank, we’re going to respond accordingly.”

    "At the end of the day." Only ends-justify-means morons use that term. "Sure we arrested a guy who was no threat, but at the end of the day officer safety was preserved. And at the end of the day we got to handcuff and rough up a goddamn hippie."

  • Night Elf Mohawk||

    It seems to me, as a non-cop, that "responding accordingly" would be showing up and assessing the situation at hand and realizing that a guy outside with a sign isn't anything like a guy inside with a note and a gun.

  • Archduke PantsFan||

    which is why you are not a cop.

  • ||

    It's not the arrest that bothers me. They thought he was trying to rob the bank. When someone's holding a sign that says "You're being robbed," it's somewhat reasonable to assume they're trying to rob the bank. Should they have arrested him? Probably not, but I think it was an honest mistake.

    No, the think that makes no sense here is CHARGING the man. I mean, come on. After reviewing the signs and speaking to the guys, they (and the prosecutor's office) can't tell he's not a crook? WTF? This is a pointless and sham trial trying to convict someone for something they didn't do. This really pisses me off.

  • ||

    no, but as usual you misstate my position.

    how shocking

  • ||

    You've stated before that someone pointing a gun at a cop should expect to get shot, as if they're somehow at fault for poor police conduct. How is Coeus's statement NOT in line with that sentiment?

  • ||

    it's this simple

    a person, before he draws a gun (and especially points it at somebody) needs to exercise due diligence and have cause to do so.

    period.

    in the case case coeus mentions, all the guy knew was that somebody was knocking on his door. that does not justify the drawing of a gun and then opening the door such that the person can see you are doing so. it needlessly escalates.

    i need due cause to draw my gun. so do "civilians". no double standard.

    i see no evidence there was poor polic conduct in that case. i know cops were looking for (iirc) an attempted murder suspect and when they knocked on the door, chucklenuts apparently came ot the door holding a gun in his hand.

    his bad

    what facts and circumstances were known to him that would justify drawing a gun and holding it in his hand so the person knocking at the door would see it?

    i am not aware of any, apart from the fact that there was a knock, late at night

    he had the affirmative duty to exercise due diligence. if he had done so, he wouldn't be dead

    just because the guy in the current case got shot when he answered the door in a completely different circumstance, doesn't mean people are always justified answering the door with a gun in their hand

    that's like saying because my friend was shot interviewing a possible witness, that i am justified drawing my gun on any witness i interview

  • tarran||

    Dunphy,

    If the cops had reason to fear for their lives that justified them having their guns out and pointed at the door, then the guy had cause to have his gun out by his side.

  • Coeus||

    Because cops lives are more important. There really can be no other reason for that stance than that.

  • ||

    again, misstate my position and the facts all you want. it's trollish, but so be it.

    he came to the door with a gun in his hand, and he had no justification to do so, and he got capped.

  • Coeus||

    And the guy in this story came to the door without a gun in his hand, since he had no justification to do so, and he got capped. So what's the solution? Never answer the door at night? What if someone's in urgent need of medical attention?

  • tarran||

    Actually, I am fascinated by Dunphy's contortions to justify the assymetry that one group of guys are allowed to wander through a neighborhood with their guns out and ready to fire on short notice, while the residents are not allowed to have a firearm at the ready.

    If the wandering guys have cause to have their guns out and ready to fire, so do the residents.

  • Fluffy||

    He's not trolling you at all.

    The police came to that door with their weapons drawn.

    If it's so dangerous a world that the police need to approach doors with their weapons drawn, why can't the homeowner show a similar level of fear and come to the door with his weapon drawn?

    "Oh, but the police knew an attempted murderer was in the area!"

    The guy had committed an assault. He was deliberately overcharged later so the police could say, "We were looking for an attempted murderer!" But even allowing that they were looking for an "attempted murderer", I can unequivocably state that thousands of attempted murderers are at large, right now, across the United States. Any one of them could knock on my door at any moment.

  • tarran||

    Damn you, fluffy! Get out of my head!

  • T||

    Wrong fucking answer. I don't need any justification to answer my door with a gun in my hand beyond 'I feel like it'. Show me case law or black letter law that says otherwise. Given the rules on deadly force in my state, I can guarantee you there isn't any.

  • Coeus||

    just because the guy in the current case got shot when he answered the door in a completely different circumstance, doesn't mean people are always justified answering the door with a gun in their hand

    They are in my neighborhood. And since the cops will shoot you there whether you have a gun or not, I'd rather take my chances.

  • ||

    he had the affirmative duty to exercise due diligence. if he had done so, he wouldn't be dead

    Wait, he has to exercise "due diligence", but the cops DON'T? If someone opens the door with a gun in their hand, it's ok to shoot him?

  • Coeus||

    just because the guy in the current case got shot when he answered the door in a completely different circumstance, doesn't mean people are always justified answering the door with a gun in their hand

    It's no different at all. Two people he didn't know knocked on the door at night. How is that different?

  • Invisible Finger||

    all the guy knew was that somebody was knocking on his door. that does not justify the drawing of a gun

    Yeah right. The police don't ever knock on doors with guns drawn and pointed. The police escalated this behavior by making it their standard operating procedure for decades.

    Because of that, you don't get any say as to how people get to answer their own goddamn doors. You should expect people to have drawn and pointed guns when answering their doors, they are doing their due diligence after all. Especially because everyone else expects the police to have guns drawn and pointed at them.

  • ||

    no, but as usual you misstate my position.

    how shocking

  • Coeus||

    Yet you just made that same point again upthread.

    How shocking.

  • ||

    yawn...

  • Coeus||

    It may be boring to you, but I'm trying to figure out how I'm supposed to survive answering the door. Unlike the boys in blue, I don't get the benefit of the doubt.

    i'm tired of rehashing the same shit with people who can't read what i write the first time and misstate the position.

    it's this simple - IF the guy feared for his life enough such that he felt the need to answer the door with a gun in his hand - DON'T ANSWER the fucking door?

    did he have facts and circ's justifying same? nobody has presented any evidence that he did.

    did he exercise due diligence and look out a window to see who was knocking?

    etc.

    did he even call out "who is it?"

    he got shot justifiably.

    you can wank all you want, but there are no facts in evidence justifying him drawing a gun and holding it in his hands.

    i have no idea if the cops had their guns out or not. considering they had facts and circumstances such that they had reasonable suspicion (attempted murderer seen running into those residence units), they may have.

    coeus et al can feel free to answer their doors with guns in their hand. just don't go bitching to me if you get capped.

  • Archduke PantsFan||

    IF the guy feared for his life enough such that he felt the need to answer the door with a gun in his hand - DON'T ANSWER the fucking door?

    And how would the cops have responded to that pray tell?

  • Night Elf Mohawk||

    So did the cops already have their guns out or did they draw, aim, and shoot before this guy could say or do anything?

  • Fluffy||

    IF the guy feared for his life enough such that he felt the need to answer the door with a gun in his hand - DON'T ANSWER the fucking door

    If you fear an armored car robbery so much that you have to arm yourself as the driver, don't drive an armored car around.

    Don't you see how stupid that sounds?

    Arming himself was the measure the guy had taken to protect his safety. So he could safely answer the door.

    Let's say the guys weren't cops. Let's say they were just poor lost souls trying to get out of the rain. And they knock on the door of a house, and the owner comes to the door armed. Are they allowed to shoot him?

    If I'm wandering around on somebody else's rangeland at night, and the rancher rides up on a horse and he's got his rifle with him, do I get to blow him away before we even speak?

    I think the rule should be:

    1. The property owner is entitled to be armed.

    2. I should stay off his property if I don't like that.

  • ||

    Damn, Fluffy, that rule set is never going to work with the cops' "shoot first, ask questions later" policy. Can't you compose your rules so that the cops are always right, no matter what?

  • Gray Ghost||

    Let's turn it around. If it was Fluffy's poor lost soul knocking on the guy's door at 1:30 AM---to ask to borrow the phone, report an accident, whatever---and they see the guy holding a firearm at his side; if they then wig out, draw their own lawfully carried CCW and kill the homeowner, what do we all think would happen? Is the poor lost soul going to be allowed to walk around pending an investigation? Or is the poor lost soul going straight to jail for manslaughter?

    Why isn't that ever going to be on the table for the cops in that case? Christ, being safe in your own home from unwarranted intrusion or violence used to be one of the staples of Anglo-American jurisprudence. What the hell happened?

  • T||

    there are no facts in evidence justifying him drawing a gun and holding it in his hands.

You and your buddies need to justify your actions because you are undertaking them under the auspices of the public. You misrepresent the law and claim we have to justify to you? Fuck no.
