    excellent segment–you definitely held your own against McPhee, who has long turned a blind eye to police brutality.

    The problem is that there are too many police enforcing too many laws. There are thousands of unjust laws that violate basic human rights and peaceful activity. Naturally, the police target the young, poor, and politically unconnected because they are the easiest targets. Because of the enforcement of unjust laws, the police are committing more crimes than the bad guys.

    Regarding Michele McPhee saying that it is okay to stop and search suspected weed smokers just in case one of them might possess some "crack", I have an alternative suggestion: Direct the police to stop and search all chubby blondes in order to arrest any that may possess contraband. Since there are thousands of items that are currently illegal, this police sweep will remove many blonde criminals from our streets. — Rick [Freedom_First (at) verizon (dot) net]
