    Why go legally armed in Pennsylvania?

    Retired state trooper kills two during tollbooth robbery before dying in shootout: Police ... Authorities said Clarence Briggs, 55, shot and killed a tollbooth collector and a security contractor about 7 a.m. during an armed holdup where the turnpike empties out into Fort Littleton in south central Pennsylvania.

    Obviously not enough good things to make it worth living. Total lack of respect for his fellow man - sad.

    I came across a news report at lunch time that said he filed for bankruptcy in (April?) 2015.

    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.

    Bankruptcy was mentioned in the OP.

    How can this be? He is a retired cop. Bogus news story...musta been from the Onion.

    It is AFAIK original to me. Compromise is failure on the installment plan, particularly when dealing with so intractable an opponent as ignorance. - Nightmare
