"We dont make the laws, just enforce them" may have been true back in the before-time, but when you look today at how many laws are "suggested" or flat-out written by the various police unions its hard to argue they are a captive audience.


You think that regulations are really written by regulators?   Nope.   They have the final say so, but seldom if ever do they actually draft the verbiage.

Is that why bills like "blue lives matter" are essentially identical in each state?  Come on, cookie-cutter-get-the-law-and-order-reelection-endorsement legislation only requires a politician to add their name to the top.  They barely bother reading it.

Correct.  I would fully expect that some police union wrote it and everyone else took successful legislation and copied it.   Like I said, you will also find that big companies often get to write the regulations that regulates them.

This is an annual rehash of a story.    It should be hard to blame Trump for this.

Lost.

We had a few brief moments over 35 years ago when we were still moving toward the light - then reversed direction away.

You can thank the rise of Fox News for a lot of that.

Rupert Murdoch.  Koch Brothers.  Ignorance of people who want to live in a fantasy world rather than the real world.  As I have gone on about repeatedly.



Mathis Brothers...??

Big Money As Private Immigrant Jails Boom

https://www.npr.org/2017/11/21/565318778/big-money-as-private-immigrant-jails-boom

Quote
The Trump administration wants to expand its network of immigrant jails. In recent months, Immigration and Customs Enforcement has called for five new detention facilities to be built and operated by private prison corporations across the country. Critics are alarmed at the rising fortunes of an industry that had fallen out of favor with the previous administration.

The Joe Corley Detention Facility is a sprawling complex surrounded by shiny concertina wire located in Conroe, Texas — about an hour north of Houston.

ICE spends more than $2 billion a year on immigrant detention through private jails like this one.

The Corley facility is owned by GEO Group, the nation's largest private prison company.

ICE and the U.S. Marshals Service pay GEO $32 million a year to house, feed and provide medical care for a thousand detainees.

And the travel ban is dead again. Blocked by the courts, again, the day before it was to take effect.

Something happened today. Any idea?

You mean just a tooch bit more cruel than a few years ago when Obama made travel from those same countries significantly more difficult. But hey, prospective.

I guess there really isn't anything going on in the world to be worried about.
