615 so far this year. With so many incidents they cannot be called “isolated”.

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.

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.

Extremely sad state of affairs.
I almost had a full-blown argument with a neighbor last night. He was once a “law-enforcement officer” (actually, an animal-control officer who was a sheriff’s deputy), and took exception to mine and my friend’s distrust of law-enforcers in general. He still thinks that most of the problem is with the people and that most (99%, in his words) law-enforcers are “good people”. He could not come to grips that there are many very corrupt, criminal folks as police officers.
So long as these sanctioned MURDERS continue, the MORE people are going to distrust government in general, especially those “charged” with enforcing the laws.
