    Wink The alternative:

    Iíve read a number of articles, stories and opinions on how, what, and why there should, must be alternatives to cops shooting, beating, taseing, hurting or embarrassing the people here in the United States of America (even the illegal ones).

    Each and every author has some idea on how this could be accomplished; if only the police would listen to them.

    After due and diligent research and a compilation of all the facts and theories I have found the two most successful methods available to society today, taking into consideration cost, time, effort and level of knowledge available.

    1. Obey the law.
    2. Do what the cops tell you to.

    Since every cop is required to have a Miranda Warning card so that there will be no error when advising a subject of their rights; I was thinking why not require everyone who is not a cop to have a card with these two rules printed on it.

    Maybe we could call it the Cops Rights Card.

    We are the thin blue line
    between you
    and all the money in the world.

    And no you can't have any.

    i need a tissue
    http://www.allpoetry.com/Grunts%20Girl

    We dallied under
    Vine maples and sapling alders
    Searched for lady slippers
    But instead
    Found blackberry riots and
    Desiccated branches

    An old skid road
    Brought ghost ferns and
    Hollows filled with
    Skunk cabbage
    While waves wrapped
    Intricate lacings of weeds
    'Round mule spinners

    His cyanotic eyes
    Were hard enough to make
    The sun turn tail and
    Tender enough to attract me
    To his world of illusion

    But what if someone is illiterate and can't read the card? Maybe it would be better to have it as an audio recording placed in every ipod!

    Sarge, the only way that is going to take is if we apply those rights with a sledgehammer.
    And Shepards we shall be,
    for thee, My Lord, for thee,
    Power hath descended forth from Thy hand,
    That our feet may swiftly carry out Thy Command.
    So we shall flow a river forth to Thee
    And teeming with souls will it ever be.
    In Nomine Patris, Et Filli, Et Spiritus Sancti.

    3. Fire politicians who make ridiculous laws

    Preferably from a canon

    As pointed out in the article Pedro56 posted - Illinois' criminal code has expanded from 72 pages to 1200 since 1961. With 1200 pages how many people in Illinois are not breaking some laws, and how many know them all? Lot of redundancy I'm sure and common sense probably clears you of the first 1000 pages, but still.

    Here's a novel thought.
    GET A FU@!#$G EDUCATION AND THEN A JOB!
    Then maybe, just maybe there would be no time for criminal activity.
    Learning a few morals and principles along the way couldn't hurt.
    Do not war for peace. If you must war, war for justice. For without justice there is no peace. -me
