Hour 2 -- Segment 3 -- Marc Victor (AttorneyForFreedom.Com) on the police state

I'm a cop. If you don't want to get hurt, don't challenge me.
It's not the police, but the people they stop, who can prevent a detention from turning into a tragedy.
Washington Post 08-19-2014A teenager is fatally shot by a police officer; the police are accused of being bloodthirsty, trigger-happy murderers; riots erupt. This, we are led to believe, is the way of things in America.
It is also a terrible calumny; cops are not murderers. No officer goes out in the field wishing to shoot anyone, armed or unarmed. And while they're unlikely to defend it quite as loudly during a time of national angst like this one, people who work in law enforcement know they are legally vested with the authority to detain suspects ? an authority that must sometimes be enforced. Regardless of what happened with Mike Brown, in the overwhelming majority of cases it is not the cops, but the people they stop, who can prevent detentions from turning into tragedies.

2014-08-21 Hour 3 John Buttrick
Judge Buttrick was appointed to the Arizona bench in 2001 by a Republican Governor following stints on the Libertarian National Committee and as Chair of the National Platform Committee in the late 1990s. Buttrick also ran as a Libertarian for Governor of Arizona and for the Arizona House of Representatives in 1994 and 1998 respectively. Following his appointment to the bench, Judge Buttrick was twice retained by the voters in retention election in 2004 and 2008.The federal court appointment was not made by the President or approved by the United States Senate, Buttrick stressed. This appointment was made by the District Court Judges in Arizona directly and is for a four year term. "While I have enjoyed my service on the state court level I am excited to explore this new opportunity in the federal judiciary. The only downside is that I will be unable to be politically active during my term in office so I will not be involved in LP affairs while still on the bench."
