What most 21st Century Americans simply do not grasp is that the Constitution and Bill of Rights were not written to to give rights to the citizens of our then-new nation, but was instead written to tightly constrain the federal government.

That ought to be good for a riot or two.

In this one case, I believe that the police willfully misbehaved, and that the court gave them a pass.

Since it's "Balimer," I expect that the entire city will burn down soon.
