It's really frustrating how law enforcement view civil liberties groups.
A lot of times, most law enforcement people are very black and white on the law. "The law is the law is the law is the law etc." Pot itself may not be that bad, but it's against the law so therefore...
But clearly, there are some laws cops and other law enforcement types find more important than others. Minor possession of marijuana is apparently more important than fundamental civil liberties, from what I can tell. I never understand why the constitution isn't black and white but other laws are, in their minds.
It seems the key is whatever supports an authoritarian mindset is good, in their minds... eg. strict drug laws do, whereas not civil liberty laws because they undermine that mindset.
Re: Re: So what, now we are supposed to trust what they are telling us?
Well based on what I read they can actually publish it. They are only allowed to publish ranges if it includes all law enforcement requests as well, right?
Well do that, but then publish the non-classified numbers separately. Being that it's not classified or sealed, it's a first amendment violation to prevent them from disclosing regular law enforcement requests.
What would that conversation even look like? He would make a few well reasoned arguments and you would resort to calling him petty names the way you already are? Why would anyone (other than you and your troll brethren) want that?
