    From the Virginian-Pilot:

    The Tidewater Libertarian Party is expected to ask the city council next week to establish a citizen review board to investigate Chesapeake police procedures during a controversial drug raid last year on a Portlock home.

    Don Tabor of the Tidewater Libertarian Party said his group will address city leaders at the Feb. 24 council meeting because questions regarding police procedures in such raids have gone unanswered.
    “Somebody outside the police department should be overseeing the police, just as civilian authority oversees the military,’’ Tabor said.

    In a statement on the issue, the Libertarian Party said: “This citizen review board should have full access to all evidence, records, reviews and testimony, and report to the City Council, and ultimately, with council approval of sensitive content, to the public, in order to restore the lost trust of the citizens in our police department and to ensure that our police officers and citizens are no longer placed in unnecessary danger.

    Thanks for the info, Repeater.
    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.
