3. state of the cops

logosoco: This is the biggest problem in America today.

.. referring to police brutality or corruption, I gather. Then you post a collage of a hundred or so pictures & stories of police brutality, incompetence, or corruption, as if transmogrifying isolated incidents done over years is significant proof that they are the biggest problem in America today.
.. police do around 200 justifiable shootings yearly (iirc), while the vast majority are done by non-cops; similar stats with woundings & aggravated assaults - cops don't do well in the robbery category tho, civilians win that one hands down.
.. yes cops can be incompetent, corrupt, & brutal, but they generally aren't if you are civil enough.

nyc skip: One reason I'm such a strong proponent for the Second Amendment is that we live in a police state.

I doubt if you'd said 'police state' in 1791 they'd've known what you were talking about.
You should amend that to 'proponent for gun ownership'.
Cops are more prone to be pro gun than average (imo), due the nature of their work.
