Quote of the day—Glenn Reynolds

When police trespass on your property to stop you videoing them, you should be allowed to kill them, put their heads on pikes as a warning to others, sell their organs to Chinese organleggers, and use the money to buy billboards mocking their superiors for lawlessness.

It’s a modest proposal, but it would probably reduce misconduct.

[I was a little surprised to see this from a law professor but I can see a case to be made for the proposal.

I suspect we would only have to have a national discussion about the merits of such a reform to effect a change in police attitude.—Joe]

  1. Reynolds is one of the few legal professionals to believe in the rule of law, rather than the rule of lawyers.

    • Prof. Randy Barnett, author of “Restoring the lost Constitution” is another. Great book, by the way.

      • Though out current POTUS has proven that doesn’t mean squat. Knowing it and respecting/understanding it is different from “knowing” it and holding it in contempt because it isn’t understood.

        • Or holding it in contempt because it IS understood — the more likely answer.

          • I honestly don’t know. And I don’t know which is more pathetic, that he can study it well enough to teach it (sort of) yet still not comprehend the brilliance of it, or that he does see and understand how it is supposed to work yet still finds it contemptible because it interferes with his supposed greatness.
            I can see him being the African tribal leader, an absolute ruler of all his domain, with no real understanding of science or technology, yet absolutely sure of his moral, physical, spiritual, and cultural superiority to the white invaders, even after he sees what disciplined men with rifles do to his battalions of spearmen. What bizarre logic is running though is brain is twisted and strange.

  2. Such practices broadened and extended to,include all ranges of government would certainly restore democracy to ,American “democracy”. I also believe it would create a lot of jobs in the pike manufacturing sphere, as of late they have been laying off. Great work Glenn !
