Re: Police questioned me after an email to my congressman
You're not alone buddy. I had the FBI on my ass 2 years ago after I sent my congressman a letter asking for my share of the bailout money.

“Through me you pass into the city of woe:
Through me you pass into eternal pain:
Through me among the people lost for aye.
Justice the founder of my fabric moved:
To rear me was the task of Power divine,
Supremest Wisdom, and primeval Love.
Before me things create were none, save things
Eternal, and eternal I endure.
Abandon all hope, ye who enter here.”

Re: Police questioned me after an email to my congressman
to you cowards telling him he was wrong for the last paragraph, did you stop and think that maybe this is what we ALL need to be saying to these so called officials? isn't it time they learned their actions aren't being taken kindly to? they are making laws that ruin people's lives everyday! they need to have retribution if they won't fix it.

STOP BEING COWARDS! I APPLAUD YOU OP AND I HOPE MORE AMERICANS START DOING SOMETHING!!!!

If you would only realize that we are on the same side. You must act civilized, however, or they have an excuse to fuck you.....Ruby Ridge.

Your mind is free, you can speak with friends, you can organize.....

YOU CANNOT MAKE VIOLENT THREATS!

Search my "Fuck the Police" thread if you think we are very different.
 Quoting: Gandhi


I do realize that and, again, I appreciate it bro.

However, I've only threatened that I'll defend myself against oppressive force. Nothing that makes me psycho, or a terrorist.

And I can't emphasize enough that I'm NOT afraid of my government.

At all.
Here's what we can do to change the world, right now, to a better ride. Take all that money we spend on weapons and defenses each year and instead spend it feeding and clothing and educating the poor of the world, which it would pay for many times over, not one human being excluded, and we could explore space, together, both inner and outer, forever, in peace.

You must be patient. Right now they are imploding. The police state is an effort to maintain control.

They would love nothing more to use you as an example or to spread lies about you to make Americans live in fear.

Be patient, calm down, quiet the rhetoric, and be ready when the time comes.
 Quoting: Gandhi


I'll be waiting for the implosion, but not quietly. I have no good reason to believe that it'll even happen in my lifetime considering some of the fear that I see here.
Why would a government that has its civvies so submissive give up their power?
 Quoting: googooflexy


I'm done, many in America are upset, but the internet is not secure. You are making a BIG MISTAKE in my opinion. There are other ways......I suggest you find them and direct this energy towards safer, more productive ends.

Best of luck,

Gandhi.

Re: Police questioned me after an email to my congressman
I once wrote that I had cancer and wanted to take a few stupid politicians down with me. I thought it was funny, and it was a very long time ago now, but that got me a one way ticket to the emergency room. The Doctor just laughed and turned me loose.

Any mention of violence to self or others, puts you on the list pal, even if joking and in a funny context. They have now let you know they are watching you. But nothing more ever became of my event.

Re: Police questioned me after an email to my congressman
OP, stop.

Don't try to play sane moderator all of the sudden.

Especially after what happened to Giffords, I think it's entirely reasonable that police would come check on someone who wrote an unbalanced letter mentioning dying in the act of taking action... I think that's suggestive of a certain mindset that could be assumed to be on the edge or just plain coo coo crazy.

You went over a line, lost your cool, whatever. As a citizen and a father, I'm frankly glad you were questioned. Looking at the big picture, I too am upset when police abuse their powers - but hostile, angry youth tend to ignore every beneficial act performed by law enforcement and end up with a skewed perspective. Law enforcement mostly does good - like keeping tabs on someone who is in a mental state where they may do harm to themselves or someone else.

I mean really, what's your argument here? You were just angry and irrational but not really suicidal or homicidal? You aren't coming off very well here.

My blood will be on your hands if a police officer acts in this way in my neighborhood. I WILL take action against an oppressive power of this nature, and will likely die doing so.


You're saying you're likely to die in a bloody shootout with police. No wonder they knocked on your door to see if you seem really crazed. They would be negligent if they didn't.

You "WILL take action"?

And get even more folks yellin' at me about my "wording"? lol, no thanks. If it didn't fare well on a conspiracy theory website, then the general public will likely have my head.

 Quoting: googooflexy



OP,

The last part of your letter sounded like you were saying this:

" I just MIGHT go berserk in public, and die in a shootout ".

Now you can see why police spoke to you, and they wanted to see if your REAL last name was Laughner, cousin of Jared.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 558159


here is the thing, they GOT the letter obviously, and read it.
now the OP is saying something very basic, as basic as 'rape is wrong' .......

so why send the cops then, instead of a letter back saying we agree this is a serious issue.

that the congressman read his letter and all they did was send the cops after him. that would set a crazy person off even more no doubt.

but what i'm saying is probably too complex for the meat heads here to comprehend. dont worry OP, there are other smart people out there - we just have to dumb ourselves down sometimes to interact with people :-/
