    These Laws to Make Us Safe Won't Be Abused Because it Can't Happen in "America"...

    As defined by the Official Terrorism Training For Law Enforcement:
    What Is Domestic Terrorism?
    Extreme force and violence perpetrated by
    the people government of a country, within that country,
    for the purpose of coercing its government and population public
    into modifying its behavior"

    You are either with Our Constitution or you are with The Terrorists!

    Who says it can't happen in America? It can and does all the time.

    Would love an actual, credible, constructive suggestion to stop it.

    The guy misused his power, what does that have to with a law. Did he pass a law saying he could use the police to harass twitter users? Report the law, or it's a stupid post.

    Now, did the mayor abuse his power? Absolutely. Did the twitter account lible him with those charges and misuse his identity with no notification that it was a parody? Could be.

    There were no laws in that article. There was abuse of existing laws based on the constitution.

    Not even idiots claim it can't or doesn't ever happen in America. Rather, the most optimistic claim is that it happens so rarely it's not worth worrying about, and furthermore this will always continue to be the case.

    Well, if you're white/Asian, middle-class or better, and not a political extremist, then you're probably still in the category of folks for whom major police/judicial wrongdoing is fairly unlikely in the immediate future. Take away any of those qualifiers, however, and the picture isn't so rosy.
    APF doesn't come in screaming at others about how stupid they are. APF doesn't spam NST with the same tired topic 30 times a month. APF doesn't link to some kook in his mom's basement telling you how to, "Be afraid. Be very afraid" of the world falling down around you. And, when APF is proven wrong, he acknowledges he made a mistake and moves on, rather than harping about "sheeple."

    Amazing how the pro-govt zipheads are so quick to try and minimize the sting of this example that exposes the tyranny that will continue to grow and multiply in the coming years until we put our foot down and abolish the NSA & IRS, cripple the CIA and go on a massive spending reduction of the FBI.

    Anything can happen anywhere. Now tell me what the strawman was, or look up logical fallacies, strawman.

    Abuse of power happens, but the OP said what he did was lawful. I don't see what law supported what he did.

    I'm sorry, I thought you meant the respondent constructed a strawman. I take it for granted that there's a strawman in 90% of cheezy's posts, if that's what you were referring to.

    I must confess to being a bit confused with the title of the thread myself, but that aside. KickSave did I believe get to the heart of the matter with his question.

    Other than Cheesy bemoaning the lack of righteous indignation and outraged butthurt-ness at this story by calling us resident KFFL poopyheads some pro-gov't zipheads. What can credibly and constructively be done to battle and prevent this from happening?

    And keep in mind, if it involves anything more than me thucking a drug/alcohol laden, sleeping maybe kinda passed out a little in my bed babe on her forehead with my dick. To tell her, her hubby will be home from work in about an hour or so. You can probably count me out at least for today.

    There's a number of legitimate issues here, but you won't get to them by being melodramatic.

    Abuse of political/police power
    Illegal search (all charges should be thrown out)
    Can you libel a prominent citizen who would be damaged on twitter using parody as an excuse?

    are three.

    I'm getting a little defensive in these threads. Knee jerk reaction.

    I guess every thread's a gamble.
