Some outrage elsewhere, in a comment thread on Roderick Long’s blog:
All the “discrimination!” outrage from the prostrate statist tools here really sets me to thinking.
Far as I’m concerned, it’s safe to assume that every hominid wearing a police uniform, badge, weaponry, restraint tools and comms devices is a robber at least under a natural law theory of justice (that is to say, show me even one who hasn’t written someone a ticket for a non-rights-violating traffic “violation” and I’ll withdraw my “every” claim). If that is granted, then all cops are outlaws. Outlaws have no legitimate claim to protection by the members of a free society and, therefore, I would support the actions of anyone discriminating against cops for any reason whatsoever and as violently as possible, up to and including, but not limited to, shooting them in the face on sight.
Note that not all of my commenting comrades here will agree with this stance.
Kevin Carson’s comments there are blow-up brilliant. If you haven’t seen ‘em, go read.
