    Oh, ho, ho. The ATF and Marshal's service joined in the hunt to capture the accused. Now, just where in the constitution are federal agents authorized to enforce state law by assisting in manhunts? Can't recall them helping hunt down common state criminals who didn't cross state lines.

    While I don't like seeing a state cop shot and killed; the immediate aftermath of such situations do seem to demonstrate how government will go to great lengths to protect their own or capture those who harmed them versus an ordinary citizen.
    I'll make you an offer: I will argue and fight for all of your rights, if you will do the same for me. That is the only way freedom can work. We have to respect all rights, all the time--and strive to win the rights of the other guy as much as for ourselves.

    If I am equal to another, how can I legitimately govern him without his express individual consent?

    There is no human being on earth I hate so much I would actually vote to inflict government upon him.
