You know? The police DO actually cut down burglaries in some areas simply by patrolling. People should respect the police. And the police, above all others, should obey the law, even if some joker doesn't show proper respect.

There is going to be trouble over things like this. It is difficult to be forgiving, both, by police towards people who do not respect them, and towards police who do not obey the law, but try to intimidate people instead.

Why are more and more guns being purchased? For protection against law-breakers, right? And the guns may not be ultimately used - down the road, someday - to protect against the kinds of law-breakers they were originally purchased to protect against.
