Members of the municipal police and the Bureau of Jail Management nearly ended up fighting each other over the rowdy merry-making of the jail guards last Sunday night.

The Municipal policemen allegedly went there to ask the jail guards to keep down the racket they were making.

The jail guards, including [Deputy Jail Warden] Lavarias, were allegedly drinking, shouting and clapping their hands while watching a female inmate dance.

Law professor Randy Barnett, on Glenn Reynolds' MSNBC web log, has 3 days of interesting remarks about the 2nd Amendment, with more to come

On regulation:

"First, all rights are abstract and need to be governed by law to be practical.... The right to keep and bear arms may be a bit more specific, but only a bit. One still must figure out its nature and scope.... We can be sure only at the extreme.... Prohibition is (or ought to be), constitutionally speaking, off the table...."

(An open letter to Symantec from Vladimir Kushnir)

Symantec's “Internet Security” software includes parental controls to block unwanted websites containing "pornography, violence, and other material inappropriate for children."

Dr. Kushnir found that Symantec's default settings include blocks on pro-Second-Amendments sites that include KABA, GOA, SAF, JPFO, and even the NRA ...but not anti-gun sites.

Feel free to email Symantec about their blatant hoplophobic bigotry. This is a link to tell them what you think of their product and how it can be improved.

"The Associated Press (AP) has adopted the word 'militia' to refer to Palestinian terrorist groups such as Hamas, Islamic Jihad and the Al Aqsa Martyrs' Brigades. Not only are Hamas and Islamic Jihad on both the U.S. and U.N. list of international terrorist organizations, but all three share a platform of targeting and killing civilians."

"This is not the function of a 'militia,' which the American Heritage Dictionary of the English Language defines as:

an army composed of ordinary citizens ... subject to call for service in an emergency"

"Hamas does not detonate bombs on crowded buses as 'service in an emergency' but in the service of terrorizing a civilian population."

Whether that is done through legislation or simple common sense, it clearly appears that the campaign to push these frivolous, but costly lawsuits has run its course, and the legal arguments against a law-abiding, highly-regulated industry have run out of steam.'

Talk about giving police officers a pay rise has been on the air for the past few months. It was just a question of when.

The sum total of all these is a demoralised force that makes them vulnerable to corruption and extortion to make ends meet.

It is common knowledge that the fight against crime has not been successful because police lack modern equipment.

Worse, cases have been reported of officers operating lethal gangs or renting out guns and communication gadgets to criminals.
