[quote:Anonymous Coward 731648:MV84NDcwNzNfMTMxNTQ2MThfNkZBRUE4NA==] [quote:Reece2076] If they want them,they will take them,just like New Orleans... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-taU9d26wT4 "no one will be able to be armed,we're taking all weapons" and so they did. I remember that. The point I'm trying to make in this thread is when it comes down to this, many people here will obviously just see the cops as doing their jobs. Or there are a lot of hypocrites with a double standard. [/quote] The people you refer to, are what is called "authoritarian follower personalitys" they generaly believe in and support the view of authority fiqures because they know best and those who oppose them deserve whatever they get because they try to upset the established order of things that make them feel safe. There's even a test,called the RWA test, to see if you are one of these types. more here on this personality type... http://cafephilos.wordpress.com/2008/10/19/the-authoritarians-by-bob-altemeyer/ http://members.shaw.ca/jeanaltemeyer/drbob/chapter1.pdf [/quote]
When they come for your guns will you just give them up because the police officer asked you to. Will you then just comply because the cop is just doing his job.
The responses to many of the threads about the Gates incident has showed me that many of you will do what you're told because the cop is just doing his job. A lot of you believe a cop has the right to arrest you if you dare speak up about a perceived injustice.
I admit Gates was asking for trouble by talking smack to the cop. However the cop had no right to arrest him. For those who think he did, then why were the charges dropped almost immediately?
A lot of you talk a big game from your keyboards. But this incident just goes to show that when the time comes many of you will just comply. In fact I'll take it a step further and say many of you will probably help round the "troublemakers" up.
