  5. In a county that is 98% white, with 44 indictments and endangering the lives of children; this is a representation of true America that doesn’t get reported like crimes in inner cities. Food for Thought.

      1. The point made is what usually occurs in inner city frequently is matched by a single act in white communities, so there really isn’t a difference between the two communities whether it is murder, drug related, rape, or child molestation. One exception being suicide, which occurs amongst whites far greater in number than in the inner cities.

      1. “That doesn’t get reported ‘like’ crimes in inner cities.” Basic english having a meaning of “to the degree or extent of.” Was it on CNN, FOX NEWS, and plastered all over regular tv, cable, satellite, excetera! Was it all over various city newspapers? I would understand that you in essence agree with my statement of this being a representation of true America by the fact that you commented it was a report…the majority of the crimes being committed in America are by the moral majority of the population held by the same majority ethnicity represented in this particular county. But some things are kept tight lip from national and international news level. For instance, anything that happens in inner cities reach even unto islands in the pacific ocean…but this didn’t. Got my point? Come on now, you know it’s true -stop playing the “we’re so innocent game” it gets pretty old after a few centuries!

  8. All the raw materials are legal. But once the legal components are assembled together it then is deemed illegal. The American public has championed such ingenuity in the past with programs like The A-Team and Macgyver. Now those same people who grew up watching those shows are being denied their “unalienable rights” which the Declaration of Independence says have been given to all human beings by their creator, and which governments are created to protect. Life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness is subjective to each and every one of us as citizens of the United States of America. People often confuse vice with crime but they are not one and the same.

    VICES ARE NOT CRIMES: A VINDICATION OF MORAL LIBERTY
    By Lysander Spooner (1875)

    Vices are those acts by which a man harms himself or his property.

    Crimes are those acts by which one man harms the person or property of another.

    Vices are simply the errors which a man makes in his search after his own happiness. Unlike crimes, they imply no malice toward others, and no interference with their persons or property.

    In vices, the very essence of crime — that is, the design to injure the person or property of another — is wanting.

    It is a maxim of the law that there can be no crime without a criminal intent; that is, without the intent to invade the person or property of another. But no one ever practices a vice with any such criminal intent. He practices his vice for his own happiness solely, and not from any malice toward others.

    Unless this clear distinction between vices and crimes be made and recognized by the laws, there can be on earth no such thing as individual right, liberty, or property — no such things as the right of one man to the control of his own person and property, and the corresponding and coequal rights of another man to the control of his own person and property.

    For a government to declare a vice to be a crime, and to punish it as such, is an attempt to falsify the very nature of things. It is as absurd as it would be to declare truth to be falsehood, or falsehood truth.
