    Several years back I recall reading an account of a Japanese airline flight crew who were so obedient to the rigid hierarchical social rules of order in Japan, that a co-pilot failed to over ride, countermand or disregard the faulty commands of the command pilot and knowingly (although I'm sure, reluctantly) allowed the plane to crash, killing all aboard.

    IIRC, this led to changes in training to make sure that co-pilots will always speak up if they detect a problem, even if it might embarrass the more experienced Captain.

    Loss of face is not as long lasting as loss of life.

    You assume other countries don't have police, only militaries.

    I'm gonna guess you're younger than 40 and don't know what the 70s, 80s, and 90s were like in America's cities.

    You wouldn't have last a minute.

    How does China and Russia treat Muslims? And people that speak out against the Goverment?

    My God u are a stupid fucking POS idiot!
    The elephant in the room is that all Muslims are commanded to do Jihad and there are several forms of jihad. Violent Jihad is the one we fear. But all Jihad exists to increaser the influence of Islam and spread Islam to the whole world and all of humanity.

    We draw the line at violent Jihad, but non -violent Jihad is much more dangerous to a free society because it is almost impossible to detect or stop.

    So, we are put in the impossible position of trying to vet the nature of the threat from nice looking Muslims who speak and write English and who smile at us and say the right things and challenge us to find any legal reasons to stop their entering the USA or to prevent their working to advance the Islamic agenda.

    And one day, Muslims will no longer need or much care about what we think or say because they will be in control.

    And it means moon is an alien agent provocateur.

    Both leaving everyone else as collateral damage. Also, wherever socialists sieze power, they stop with the defunding. It's only when the police are the forces of the liberals and the national socialists that they object to funding and organization.

    Well, that frames the dysfunction in America today, pretty well.

    You make up shit and you lie about what Conservatives say and to you that is business as usual.

    And you wonder why there are so many mass shootings.

    I don't wonder why there are mass shootings, no. Never said such a thing.

    Don't act like having no answers and no curiosity is a thing to be content with or proud of.
