This 'n that...

A good piece by the geek with a .45 here:

Makes a good point about citizen/police relations. It's a chicken-or-the-egg thing. But, it's a fact that the kindly, friendly, helpful patrolman of yesteryear is gone forever.
Personally, I think that police academies now teach recruits that the populace is the enemy.

On an unrelated topic, it was good news to see that Judge Roberts knows the particulars of 1939's Miller vs. U.S. which many gun-control advocates like to seize upon as proof that the 2nd Amendment is a 'collective' right. He rightly pointed out that the Supreme Court side-stepped the issue of collective vs. individual rights in that case, holding only that the weapon which was at issue in the case was not a weapon that the militia would use. (Interestingly, what Mr. Miller was arrested for possessing was a short-barreled shotgun - many of which were used by U.S. forces in World War I.)
