Actually the cause is right in your quote.

I agree.

They should start with the rapists.

Here is where I am stuck: did you go around the internet or local areas making a fuss about the crime problem that precipitated this martial-law crackdown or did you let it pass? Certainly crime would affect you worse than martial law, as crime has no oversight or accountability.

Why do you only kick up dust when Authority flexes it's muscle, and not when crime does?

Is this all just part of the modern "fight-the-power" mentality?

I agree that Martial Law is serious business and has the potential for abuse, but no abuse seems to have taken place here.

Who is Martial Law protecting and who would you rather protect?

Sakura gave me that quote.
Oh how funny and true.

America is so anti-phisical punishment.
No matter what the other person does, if you lay a hand on him, America is shocked, and you are made the criminal.
Cops have it the worst. If the cop is white and does anything, he is racist.

I'm not enraged. If you are, Darkahn has made a good point, do something about it. Just for clarification, "do something about it" requires you to seek out legal courses of action that would change the situation more towards your liking. So while you tell us to know our rights, I would suggest availing yourself of your options. Furthermore, I don't take kindly to people telling me how I "should" feel. Don't assume that I will agree with you simply because I am a Satanist.

Fair enough. But given the situation as I understand it, what would the alternative be?
