The entire court system in this country exploits the same scam on an even bigger level, i.e. if police and prosecutors charge you with a host of serious crimes the cost of defending yourself can be so prohibitively high it's usually preferable to plead guilty and take a plea deal rather than fight, despite your innocence.

As to the issue of government "privatization," it's a particularly insidious scam. While I support the idea of a private law society in which there is no government, the last thing I want is an efficiently run government. Imagine a world in which every stupid law and every evil politician's whim was actually enforced, it would be an Orwellian nightmare beyond anything Eric Blair nor the most imaginative dystopian writer could dream up.

Think if intellectual property laws were to be efficiently enforced, it would require a total surveillance state and people would be fined and potentially imprisoned for every unauthorized singing of the "happy birthday" song, already restaurants are forbidden from singing it on their own, imagine the same ridiculousness applied to every copyrighted, patented idea in existence, with no escape. - Chris, InfoLib

[Category: Tyranny/Police State]
Every year around this time, it just isn't the holiday season if you don't end up stuck in a long line of traffic going through a mandatory DUI checkpoint. The cops are looking for people drinking and driving, and this unconstitutional search has been upheld by the Supreme Court.

And every year around this time, when I say it is a violation of my rights, someone chimes in:
"If you aren't doing anything wrong, you don't have anything to worry about."... (more)

Greene County, VA — A four-year-old little boy was handcuffed and then shackled by the local sheriff and taken away in a squad car, after the principal at Nathanael Greene Primary School failed to calm him down.

He returned to the TSA screening area, and here's what happened.

Me: Yeah, I left my watch here a minute ago, and I'm
