    Hollywood Hypocrite: Karl Urban as Judge Dredd

    Hot on the heels of yesterday’s column about Hollywood’s evolving take on gun rights, comes the tale of yet another star who profits greatly from glorifying guns in film while apparently embracing gun control for all us ordinary mortals.

    The star in this case is New Zealand born actor Karl Urban. While not yet what you would call an A-list star, his career is definitely up-and-coming.

    Of course statist like movies like Judge Dredd, streamline "justice" and give the enforcers the powers of prosecution, jury, judge and executioner. Reminds me of Ian Birk.

    of their respect for what only appears to be a law, are cunningly coerced into waiving their
    rights, due to ignorance." (Paraphrased)

    Speaking of such, there is a show airing on TNT called "Major Crimes", which prominently features a bitter looking brunette woman who frequently says things like "You want to arrest them, I want to walk them straight to their cells and throw away the key!" and similar bile. Every time I see one of the spots for the show I can feel my BP rising...
