You down with the latter?
Times have changed.
Maybe they should try this tactic in Chicago.
Forget that Slim is a scheister. The Rockefellers and Rothschilds started the same way.
You are talking about a noble methodology that exists only in your mind, because they want you to believe it exists.
Some day you will lose everything you have, that is certain, and curse that noble idea for a false notion. I don't expect you to realize it now.
But you will, and you will ask yourself why you were such a fool to believe it.
It's never too soon to wake up to reality.
bolding is mine.Dissenting opinion
Justice Douglas strongly disagreed with permitting a stop and search absent probable cause:
"We hold today that the police have greater authority to make a 'seizure' and conduct a 'search' than a judge has to authorize such action. We have said precisely the opposite over and over again."
"To give the police greater power than a magistrate is to take a long step down the totalitarian path. Perhaps such a step is desirable to cope with modern forms of lawlessness. But if it is taken, it should be the deliberate choice of the people through a constitutional amendment."
You can make a case that terry stops are necessary to protect officers in the performance of their duties and the public at large. But you ought to make that case and amend the constitution through the legislature, not the courts as happened via Terry v. Ohio
From Merriam Webster, bolding mine.
