If The Capitol Hill Woman Had Been Shot By An Armed Citizen, Instead of a Cop, None of You Would CareSubmitted by paul-for-liberty on Fri, 10/04/2013 - 19:18
Quite pathetic. You've all jumped on the anti-government / anti-police sensationalization of this Captiol Hill shooting. YES: checkpoints are annoying and a sign of the police state.
But is there NOT such a thing as crazy American citizens? Jesus, we libertarians spend all day CRITICIZING the average American for being coked up on prescription meds and mainstream media, but apparently it's impossible for one of these same American citizens to erratically go on a driving rampage that nearly runs over multiple cops?
The cops resisted shooting into her car for a full 20 to 25 seconds AS SHE'S swerving and reversing and nearly running over cops with her 2-ton-metal-machine-of-death called a car.
Sorry, but if I was there, and there was a woman erratically swerving and screeching her car around me, I'd be compelled to shoot her, too.
Fact is, if the woman shot to death had been killed by an armed citizen, instead of a cop, NO libertarians would give a shit.
