Are there too many laws?
Last comment by sebekm 4 weeks, 1 day ago.

The incident in Ferguson MO got me to thinking about the police force in the United States.
I see officers stopping to enforce rules in place by society and then violence ensues, resulting in the death of an unarmed man.
I see men and women harassed by the police for violation of laws. Many many laws. Citizens are stopped again and again for violating the laws.
I see the police force that are mandated to maintain order and enforce these laws and I cant help but think the police officers are set up to go to far.
All the arrests create friction between the police and citizens. There are too many laws and not enough common sense.

By the way. I am not advocating a lawless society however I am simply asking for common sense when it comes to making and enforcing laws. Maybe this would ease some of the friction between citizen and police officer.

Albert Rogers, my 8th grade Science teacher at B.I., great teacher, informed us of many things. One of the things it often said was: "Common Sense is the most Uncommon thing in the world."

Ya either got some or ya don't.

Absolutely. What we know as common sense are the rules of behavior, conduct, and citizenship which have historically been taught in the home. When we allow television and social media to raise our children, this is what we get.

IMHO - the increase in laws has been in direct proportion to a societal decrease in common sense. The only way to reverse the trend is to return to the moral compass and home teaching we used to do 40-50 years ago. Some say there's no way to go back. I disagree - but it will take a lot of pain, suffering, and societal reconstitution to make it happen.
