More boot-lickers come out of the woodwork
I really dislike deleting comments summarily
The NYPD's mission: to subjugate and harass
I participated in Usenet flamefests starting in 1994, and on old BBS systems before then. Flame wars have always been a favorite of mine, though I tried to keep them away from my blog. Now, if I will keep comments open to my readers, and certain jackasses insist on spreading their crap on my intellectual property, I'll gladly dish it out.
Well, now we know where "Paul" got all his friends. As we've come to expect from Paul and his lackeys, there are innumerable lies and half truths. (It's also no wonder they went into law enforcement, because they could never cut it in the real world where grammar and spelling skills are required.) At this time I will set the record straight.
Note how one said that I got only one thing right, but he admitted too much: that part includes "Evidently they [the NYPD] want to start recruiting thugs from an early age."
One says my hatred of cops started because of the taxi bit. Bzzt! It actually began several years ago, with two sheriff's deputies I've mentioned before. There was no crime in the least, yet they barged into my family's home and threatened to arrest me: "We can take you to jail right now!" It's that "We ARE the law" arrogance that helped me start questioning anyone with authority over me, righteous or not. Did I give that person permission, or was it bestowed by others over my protest; and is that person worthy of the authority?
Fat? I've always been beefy, and it's no secret I've put on 20 pounds since I started full-time work three years ago. However, as to the state of my appearance, I'll take the word of my friend Jackie Passey. We met for the first time in April, and one of the things she said was that I'm not fat. (Jackie, despite her worries to the contrary, is not fat in the least.) I'm certainly not fat like most NYPD you see around town -- they make Sheriff Buford T. Justice look trim.
Well, my arguments against the pigs must be pretty damn good, if all they can do is resort to playground-caliber ad hominem. And lies: "I didn't want to reduce my comments to name calling and personal attacks even though the guy deserves it." Paulie Boy left one particular message that I definitely was not going to leave.
Another said, "He contradicted himself anyway by saying the NYPD doesn't go after the real criminals, then whines he wouldn't want to be stuck for 24 hours" in Central Booking. What I in fact said was a paraphrase of Ayn Rand: "Well, when the police can't be bothered with catching real criminals, they create new ones." So where did I say that the police never go after real criminals? Are these subtle points of logic beyond NYPDs' evidently diminished intellectual capacity?
Next up, we have a classic example of how the NYPD works: "If I want any sh1t from a perp I just squeeze their heads." Wonderful, and what if the person turns out to be innocent? The guy must be Justin Volpe (who did the most abuse to Abner Louima). Then he claims, "The guy has more chin's than a chinese phonebook," and "The back of his neck looks like a pack of franks!" I find those extremely odd, considering I look in the mirror many times a day and see one chin,
and my neck all around is quite smooth. Since the pig mentioned "a pack of franks," I wonder what's on his mind for dinner tonight?
Another resorted to the common accusation that blah blah, I have no life. The reality is that if I didn't have so much going on in real life, maybe I could do the blogging I wanted. That ties into his other point: my time is very precious. Today I went out for drinks after work, wondering whether I should, because I really had to get some other things done. I kept an eye on my watch and decided to leave at a precise time, which I did, and not one minute later. So when the NYPD tell us, we who are trying to hail taxis, to go around the corner, that's a waste on our busy lives.
"Could he be the famed Star Wars Kid?" No, nor do I look anything like him. By his logic, since I'm a fan of "Rob Roy," does that make me Liam Neeson?
Then Paul whined, "For all his talk about libertarianism the loser deleted comments he didn't like and shut down his comment section. So much for freedom of expression and the freedom of two sided debate. He believes in these freedoms so long as he agrees with you." Brad explained very well in this thread why that's complete nonsense. And obviously nothing is preventing little Paulie from blathering away on someone else's property, right?
The last said, "He sounds like a mealy mouth coward and has done nothing significant in his pitiful life except to host a site." Oh brother. In my capacity as a compliance analyst, I help my manager with his particular oversight of our firm. Though our department is more "error-correction" than anything, as a whole we are creating wealth for our clients. And what does the NYPD do in the meantime, besides create more victims out of innocent people?
And he brings us back to the whole freedom of speech thing. What he forgets is that conservatives like him are just as bad as liberals in wanting restrictions on speech. I recently read a complaint that the NYPD chief won't issue a permit for gays, lesbians and transsexuals to have a demonstration at 42nd and 8th, because apparently he doesn't like them. He does, though, give permits to other groups that he does like. I'm not gay, and I believe it's sin as the Bible says, but that's my opinion. I don't use the power of government to enforce that, nor do I go around telling gays that they're going to hell, which is not the love Christ taught us to have. Gays, lesbians and transsexuals are people too, and they have as much right to march and demonstrate.
I submit my blog as evidence that I not only tolerate but support and encourage people's right to be offensive. Offensive speech is the best kind there is, especially when directed at organized religion (Christianity, Islam and any other faiths). If your faith must call upon the power of government to stop people from insulting it, perhaps it's not as rock-solid as you'd like to think.
