I feel 10 years younger and wished I had quit 10 years ago..... you miss a lot of life sitting on a bar stool. 

I'm a recovering alcoholic.  Been sober for 6 years, 5 months, and 3 days.

Meetings were good, but ultimately not my thing.  I did an in house 60 day treatment, and that helped me a lot, but I later picked up the bottle.

The only thing that made me stop was when I hit rock bottom.  Nobody's "bottom" will be the same - but it will usually be an "in your face" wake up call.

It really is one day at a time.

B,

Your emotions are getting the best of you.  I'd like you to show me where I said that I don't recognize any laws.

I understand that the legislature makes the laws.  I understand that "law enforcement" is supposed to enforce said laws.  What you (and a god forsaken amount of people) don't understand is that every law placed on the books, takes away from the freedom of somebody.  some of those are good - you shall not murder another, you shall not sexually molest children, you shall not steal another's property, etc.  But most are asinine and hold no valid place in the world except to generate revenue for the state.

I'm not against laws at all (I don't believe in a lawless society).  I'm against laws that aren't crimes by the previously mentioned definitions I gave.  If anyone commits a real crime (and no, jaywalking, loitering, speeding on the highway, etc. are not real crimes), then they should pay dearly for their transgressions.

Please don't think that I condone senseless acts of rioting and looting, because I don't.  The looters and rioters are committing crimes (based on my definitions) and should pay the price.  

The key message that I constantly see after situations where a cop kills (justifiably or unjustifiably) a citizen, is that the protesters/media pundits/civil rights activists/etc. call for a system reform of some nature.  What these mentally hopeless people aren't realizing is that this "system" they speak of was designed the way it is.  The system isn't broke, it's working as government intended it to.

Privatize policing.  Raise your children with morals and values.  Get involved in community policing.  Hold yourself and your neighbors accountable.  Get government the f*#k out of your lives and your lives will (without a doubt) become better.

Why is it so difficult for you to understand this concept?  

Every case we've seen over the past couple years all involve a CRIME with RESISTING ARREST...

...I've found the answer to my original question.

What crimes did Eric Garner and Walter Scott commit?

I guess I have a different definition of "crime" than most of America does.  To me, a crime is only legitimate if it fits one or more of the following:

1.  One human damages another human.
2.  One human damages another humans property.
3.  One human prevents another human from living freely (e.g. kidnapping).

If we see another BYU/Gonzaga match, look for the Zags to offer some payback for that loss a few weeks ago.
