Re: I Watched a Public Execution TodayDec 28th, 2005
On the News this morning ,I saw a group of New Orleans policeman ,lined up with guns aimed at a Black with a small knife in his hand. Did they try to disarm him? Or use their guns to wound him? no,they fired en masse into him until he died.
When I was watching that, I thought how easy it would be to safely disarm and subdue him. Any cowboy would rope him and hogtie him in under 8 seconds! Seriously though, animal control officers are confronted by that scenario on a regular basis when they have to remove vicious dogs. They slip a noose around the animals neck. The rope is contained in a long barrel so that the animal can't get close enough to bite them. A similar "humane" system could be used to control crazy people but it's not nearly as much fun for macho cops!
