"Show me the man and I’ll find you the crime."
-- Lavrentiy Pavlovich Beria, head of Stalin’s secret police
Can anyone argue that this statement is false?
Any country be it a democracy or not, has the potential to make this statement a reality when it begins to fear its own citizens.
There was a time "cops" walked among the citizens...now they are they being sent among us? No easy solution considering we constantly hear of the "war on drugs", "war on terrorist"... "War on crime" Really, come on
