Figured it'd be good to have a thread to keep track of incidents that display how adept our various governments are at protecting the citizenry from all types of danger, both known and unknown.

Elizabeth Daly's terrifying ordeal has gone viral. In April, the 20-year-old college student and her friends were jumped by a team of undercover agents from the Virginia Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control. The girls were jumped in the parking lot of a grocery store because the agents mistook a case of bottled water they'd purchased for alcohol. One agent pulled a gun as another jumped on the hood of Daly's car.

Incredibly, Daly was arrested, jailed and charged with assaulting a police officer because in fear, she attempted to flee her attackers, and apparently grazed one of them with her car. Daly spent a night in jail and, incredibly, didn't have the charges against her dropped until last week

It's easy to see why personal indulgences like the second amendment are no longer required now that we have crack bureaus such as these to safeguard the public trust. LOL

Saw this one a bit ago. I lols. The "bottled water" was actually a 12 pack of canned sparkling water, but still.

I would like to hear dramanyuk's opinion on this. I mean if people **** the drinking law enforcement up this bad, just imagine if we actually enforced those obscenity laws...

Bloomberg's eager abuse of the Constitution borders on treason.

Daft. The material in question wouldn't be published for public sale to begin with thus someone buying it in a store wouldn't be relevant. Derp.

Think McFly, think.

He likes trashing the Constitution. Suffice it to say, were he a Republican, this stop and frisk nonsense would be called racist in the extreme.

The media have made no small stink out of Sheriff Joe Arpaio checking legal status but say nothing when cops are allowed to violate the constitution on a subjective "they might" opinion.

It's amazing the filth you can get away with if you slap a D behind your name.
