What ??? A soveriegn state deciding what goes on in it's borders. Somebody call the Obama Justice Dept and Bob Loblaw.
"It's a great life. You risk your skin catching killers and the juries turn them loose so they can come back and shoot at you again. If your honest , your poor your whole life. And , In the end , you wind up dying all alone on some dirty street. For what? For nothing. For a tin star."
Far from being a handicap to command, compassion is the measure of it. For unless one values the lives of his soldiers and is tormented by their ordeals , he is unfit to command.

Can they still consider Star Trek or is that just for Texas?
Star Trek Cited by Texas Supreme Court | Wired.com
In the case of Robinson v. Crown Cork and Seal, the Texas Supreme Court has cited Mr. Spock... Quoting from the opinion delivered on October 22, 2010, Justice Don R. Willett states:
Appropriately weighty principles guide our course. First, we recognize that police power draws from the credo that “the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few.” Second, while this maxim rings utilitarian and Dickensian (not to mention Vulcan21), it is cabined by something contrarian and Texan: distrust of intrusive government and a belief that police power is justified only by urgency, not expediency.
In the footnotes Justice Willett goes on to recommend watching Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, and explains the scene in which Spock utters the words: “Don’t grieve, Admiral. It is logical. The needs of the many outweigh . . .” to which Kirk replies, “the needs of the few.”
