Megadittos, Jkisha. I like having The Thin Blue Line between us law-abiding citizens and a coffee riot in Center Camp.

the two doing acrobatics are cops.

it's very easy to tell, it's obvious they have had a shower recently, a dead giveaway.

How do I get a hold of you?

You just contact the mayor's office. He has a special signal he shines in the sky; it's in the shape of a giant cock.

The truth is too hard for some people to accept. Feel free to stick your head in the sand at BRC.. there's plenty of it there.

This is one of the reasons why Denmark has greater freedom than the USA.


Hahahahahahahahaha ......


Dude, cops enforce the laws. If you don't like it, lobby to get the laws changed.

In order to entrap some one, the cops would have had to encourage you to get or sell drugs. Just asking you if you have them and your admitting is an indication of stupidity on your part... (see: http://legal-dictionary.thefreedictiona ... entrapment )

Um, not sure how you get from under-cover cops to mass-murder ???

How about this simple thought: Don't break the law.

I haven't admitted to anything. Read more carefully or have your eyes checked.

The atmosphere turns to fear when cops are given powers to subvert civil liberties and we are on path to becoming a police state. See my other posts on the subject. I have held a balanced opinion on the other side of this debate as well. I am a business owner. The transfers of powers have their root in population changes (particularly overpopulation).

Burning Man is funny because everything is so open, yet there are so many undercovers and LEO's. The hot girl that's dancing by herself, doesn't seem to have any friends and asks everyone that stops to say hi if she can buy some "X" or acid from them. She just really wants to get high and she'll come to your camp with you. Sound familiar?

Burning Man is no different than the rest of the world. Anything that seems too good to be true probably is. The girl above is either a guy in drag (not so bad) or an undercover (not so good). Either way you might end up getting fucked, and not in a good way (though that depends on your preference in the former case).
Get out while there's still time!

As long as it is illegal, the profits will continue to be high.
