I would add one thing here: the 1985 MOVE bombing by police in Philadelphia.

move fireBy anyone’s reckoning, the members of the MOVE commune were a very bad bunch. However, nothing they did justified the response by Philadelphia police. When Philly’s Phinest decided they had had enough, they called in the Pennsylvania State Police, who dropped 2 bombs from a helicopter. The ensuing fire killed 11 people, including 5 children, and destroyed 60 homes.

We hear about this frequently in the Middle East, where America justifies drones that drop bombs that kill dozens of people and inflict massive collateral damage in order “to get the bad guy.” If they will do it in Yemen, why wouldn’t they do it here at home?

They already have.

Also, please read how drones have been used in domestic law enforcement against a rancher in North Dakota.

About Food for the Thinkers

My name is Doug Newman. I live in Aurora, Colorado, just outside Denver. Food for the Thinkers is mostly about the connection between Christianity and libertarianism. Most Christians do not understand libertarianism. And most libertarians do not understand Christianity. Hopefully, this blog helps clear up those misunderstanding. Check out my old page at www.thefot.us And remember: When you let people do whatever they want, you get Woodstock. But when you let governments do whatever they want, you get Auschwitz.
