Two police officers, a sergeant and a corporal, are in stable condition at hospital this morning after they opened fire on each other in a restaurant on Wednesday night in what is being described as a love triangle.

Initial reports say around 9.35pm, security officers at Ruby Tuesday restaurant in Grand Bazaar mall saw the corporal and a woman go to the restaurant's upper floor.

The security officers said the couple was being followed by the sergeant, who approached as they were leaving a few minutes later.

Eyewitnesses say the sergeant said, "You make meh loss meh house and meh wife, I ain't taking that tonight."

The San Francisco Police Officers Association is aggressively pushing a ballot measure that would allow police to use tasers on members of the public even if they aren't violently resisting. If passed, the city’s police officers would be able to electrocute people who pose no physical threat or resist arrest as a result of mental illness.

As we say in my line of work:  "What a bunch of pussies". 

Just another example of the need for limited .gov.

I suspect an ulterior motive Choad. One possibility is that in the current focus by the DEA on civil forfeiture rather than prosecutable cases, they may be looking to establish that tainted currency is evidence of illicit connection. This was used successfully in the late 1980s until some defense lawyers managed to get cases through federal appeals courts that demonstrated scientific evidence shows most currency in circulation is tainted and that alone is not evidence of a criminal connection for the cash.

Or not? Since just having too much cash has been enough reason for them to take it for quite awhile.

I blame the civil service unions. More regulations mean more employees and more employees mean a stronger union. After all, if one drug bust has money that comes from a fentanyl packing plant, you just *have* to treat every bill from the street *just in case*. From their perspective, it's all benefit and no cost to themselves. After all, it's not like it's *their* money they are spending.

They're the symptoms, the unreasonable violation of search and seizure laws are the problem.  Drugs are handled with the same zealotry that Witches were in Salem, MA in 1692.

That's the problem with absolute power corrupting absolutely. It's often hard to tell where the corruption starts.

I would not be at all surprised if you were correct.

Getting back to your original point, Civil Servant becomes Civil Master.  You can't fight a bureaucracy that you can't even vote out of office.
