The Smallest Minority on earth is the individual. Those who deny individual rights cannot claim to be defenders of minorities. - Ayn Rand
Yes, a garbage bag containing a sawed-off shotgun and 2 shells magically appearing in Mr. Clarke's garden has nothing at all to do with this:
Nothing to see here, move along please.
So he deliberately hand carried a sawed-off shotgun to the police station to turn it in?
Somehow those two items don't match, eeky. It sounds to me like someone, unhappy about his earlier "antisocial behavior" set his ass up.
Exactly-that's what I took from it.
I guess I fail at sarcasm.
Or I simply misread what you meant. Mea culpa!
I dunno...I can sympathize with someone wanting to beat the crap out of some busybody bureaucrat tax collector.
Is it just me?
…and thus, the government has created a new enemy…
Not just you, Black Ice.
And frankly, in England the "I thought it might be a thief" defence works pretty well to my mind. It's not like the police do anything about thieves.
I bet they came right 'round to deal with this fellow who scared a member of the Official Class, though.
I wish someone would drop one, anything, off in my backyard.
