    What constitutes "Police"?

    The majority opinion of the police themselves?
    The police Chiefs who have to walk a fine line of being politically correct?
    All Police from human history -- including 1930s Germany and 1960s USSR?

    Agreed. Creepy.

    I appreciate what U.S. Police do, but why should they have any extra special say in our fundamental rights?

    Voted no, of course. Ya'll are right, option C is creepy. I find it disturbing that over 4,000 Americans simply defer to the police on an issue concerning their rights. :scrutiny:

    I'll bet the idiots who voted (c) think their cell phone is their "weapon" against crime (another thread). What a joke.

    Let's not count those chickens too quickly. I'll believe it's dead when I see the body.

    You guys have to realize that "Option 3" voters are the folks who are largely uninformed, BUT WHO ARE SITTING ON THE FENCE. They mean well. They just don't know squat. And they still think that if they need a policeman, he'll be there. Unless they're speeding...

    We're up 52% to 39%, and if 8% will defer to me, a policeman, then we have another 8% on our side!! :D
