This Man is a Hero

I first heard of this some months ago, but just now CNN has decided to make it news. We need more people to stand up to intimidation by the government. The full recording of the incident is available here.

Yeah, it'll be interesting to see where this goes... My bet is that nothing will be done, but I'm hopeful only so far to admit that if anything IS done that it won't have any real lasting impact. The social-paradigm won't support the level of physical liberty that is needed to perpetuate a Constitutional Republic. People don't want to be that free. People aren't that educated. People just don't care...

"Now, part of the reason why we do not have sufficient priesthood bearers to save the Constitution, let alone to shake the powers of hell (Alma 48:17), because, I fear, unlike Moroni, our souls do not joy in keeping our country free, and we are not firm in the faith of Christ, nor have we sworn with an oath to defend our rights." (Ezra Taft Benson) Instead of accepting and embracing the principle of moral and physical freedom and liberty, our society rather justifies their liberty destroying philosophies as "necessary evils" or the only "practical" solution to our society. Such is the craftiness of the adversary, to get men to believe that there is not a direct correlation between moral and physical liberty and that freedom and liberty is not an intrinsic God-given and inalienable principle.

the officer is just trying to do his job, it's just too bad he doesn't understand where he does or does not get his authority from or what peoples rights are. I agree that the constitution should override any "authority" agencies think they have.

But to some people, the constitution is just an old document that represents "old ways" and "old thinking" it's irrelevant to the progressive movement in this country unless you're gay wanting "equal rights" then all of a sudden it's extremely relevant. Sad day.
