    Respect the Constitution

    Oakland, California, looks to be the next city to back off of the "Safe Homes Initiative," a plan to send officers door to door to look for illegally possessed firearms.

    When the project was announced in Boston late last year, it was met with a storm of protests. A few months later, Washington, D.C., announced it would be conducting a similar program, and that city was greeted with protests as well. Now it's Oakland's turn to hear from angry citizens, and like Boston and D.C., Oakland is backing off.

    Now all three cities say they won't send officers door to door, but will instead send officers out to search a person's home if they request it. So far, police in Boston and D.C. are still waiting for someone to call and ask to have their home searched.

    (No shit? :mamoru: :rofl:)

    The politicians will no doubt still call this program a success, even though citizens have always been able to ask the police to search their homes for whatever reason they want. The real story is that residents in Boston, D.C. and now Oakland are standing up for their constitutional rights. If they're standing up for the Fourth Amendment, it gives me hope that more of them will start standing up for their Second Amendment rights as well.

    A generation of children, raised by a generation of children, who were raised by a generation of children.

    Doing away with segregation, as great of a leap as it was, really seemed to destroy the black community structure. Once the "upper" class blacks could move out of the lower classes, it just destroyed the entire system of community.

    i think the problem is the great society of the 1960's. the government replaced the role of the black father. now black males could get bitches pregnant and then skip town. its not their problem because the government will feed and take care of their kid. and so now you have all these kids without father figures that watch TV and think they'll be the next rap or NBA star, and the current rap and NBA stars are thuggish cause thats whats sells.
