What do you think would happen to someone caught with a joint

Going through airport security in a major American airport. Houston, Atlanta, Chicago, etc. I know laws vary by state but TSA is federal.

White privilege is real. Problem is a lot of poor whites will never

agree simply because it is hard to feel privileged when your life fucking sucks because you are poor. And the fact is among whites some are more likely to get pulled over than others. Shit for one thing poor whites are more likely to be giving probable cause with a broken light or expired tag than rich or moddle.class ones. Blacks are dispraportionately pulled over. I haven't seen stats but I doubt police stops are equal across all income levels of whites.

I can assure you that some poor whites who think (wrongly) Black Lives Matter is an exclusionary statement do so because their lives are chractarized by such a lack of privilege.

Police Lives Matter

I have seen that meme on FB today. It is so tempting to tell them "all lives matter."

You get what you pay for. One factor in shitty policing.

Make the job harder to get. Higher level of education should be required psychological testing, etc and taise the pay about 100 percent. When you give the power over life and death to people and pay them nothing and requre a level of education found at the Jr College Academy. Well, you are gonna get some fucked up people in there.

These people (whoever the fuck they are) could legally

walk around downtown Dallas with their AR15s thanks the wise Republicans in the Texas Lege. I can't imagine what their counterproductive and insulting response to this will be
Full citizenship for AR15s?

Nothing I have seen has indicated to me these people have any

training beyond what someone could teach themselves and implement if generally physically fit. The meat puppets are speculating they are some sort of ninjas.

Police who murder people in their custody or under color of law should face the death penalty.

Generally I don't think the DP is a deterrent for a desperate crack head who shoots a 7-11 clerk. However, I think the possibility of being executed would have a very strong effect LEO. Taking the life of a cop will get you the DP in many states. Their lives are not worth more than anyone else's and they need to be on notice that if they illegally take a life, they may very well forfeit their own.
