    Week of shootings leads to Full-Blown Police State

    A few crimes in one week and the mayor of Darby, PA, institutes a "State of Emergency" which apparently suspends the U.S. Constitution and allows the police to search anyone they see in public. Expect to see more "States of Emergency" declared as more towns and states suffer financially in the hard economic times ahead. Want safety? Arm yourself!


    Week of shootings led to Darby state of emergency

    Authorities were using powers which, under the 10-day state of emergency, allow officers to demand identification and stop and frisk people of any age who are outdoors or in a public place between 8 p.m. and 6 a.m., said Thomas.

    You do know that here in IN in our current IC the governor can do this as well.

    I was totally upset. What if they had had the block party - and the person came back ... and wanted to shoot whoever it was he was looking for?"

    Well, at least there is a cemetery nearby.

    Come on Rambone, you know that if cops could do this all the time, there would never be any crime.

    Apparently not all of the subscribers to the "never let a good catastrophe go to waste" are on the left.

    Actually, they can't anymore. That Bill was passed at the same time as last year's Parking Lot law, if I recall...
    "Criminals are never materially handicapped by such rules; the only effect is to disarm the peaceful citizen and put him fully at the mercy of the lawless. Such rules look very pretty on paper;
    in practice they are as foolish and footless as the attempt of the mice to bell the cat. Such is my thesis, that the licensing of weapons is subversive of liberty and self-defeating in its pious purpose"

    The legality of this Mayor's act is harder to swallow than the reheated pork chop I'm trying to eat. What law gives the mayor of a town this kind of power?

    It's a different world out here. I really don't know what else to say other than that.
