These USA are constituted by we the people so that we have a government of, for and by the people, a constitutional republic, that is, that which is democratic but not strictly a democracy: passing fads of pressure groups should not trump, as it were, the law, the Constitution.
Here in these USA we recognise rights of individuals as unalienable because irreversibly granted by a Higher Authority, God Himself, not merely capriciously “granted” by some arbitrary person of some government who could in that case simply rescind those rights.
But some may chose to abandon their rights. We have a fallen human nature. Thus, the dire need for un-politicized police.
On the one hand, I wish I could supply our officers with the best equipment and the best tech. We have what is needed for what it takes and the guys do a great job. But a little extra edge would benefit everyone.
On the other hand, there’s an extra sense of accomplishment when you’re so good at what you do that you get it done regardless. And they do. We have a great PD.
Update: I got to thinking about this. Does Pope Francis and his Pachamama Entourage concede that steadfast belief in Jesus is a right granted by Almighty God?
