Did all those policemen that shoot up the innocent in California last week, during the manhunt... were they properly screened? I just don't understand how you think a disfunctional government will save people, by giving it MORE toys and authority. What do you need to see, the cabin burning via a drone strick instead of the gas grenadas? Maybe the boating adventure you discribe turned out not to be the best judgement on the part of the parents. The world is not the safest place, and tax dollars have limited purposes.
