#1 We badly need a RAB (Or "International Exports') Here in the USA. Some people just need Killin'.

#2 Um no.

We laugh at and make fun of the RAB. We have some sympathy for them because of the situation B'desh is in.

But let's always remember that what the RAB does is extra-judicial killing. They do it because B'desh is not a democracy governed by the rule of law.

It's a shit-hole, in fact.

And I would prefer to keep the rule of law, democracy, human rights and respect for 99% of my neighbors, and NOT live in a shit-hole.

So no thanks. I prefer arrests, trials, lawyers, evidence, court rules, and just punishments.

#3 Some people just need Killin' Banning.

And you can thank the 'Rule of Law' that it happens rarely here.

Get the hint?

#4 Steve, that's good 95% of the time. Still, we've all seen blatant criminality take place without the culprits being held accountable. Congress is the prime example, but it's rampant in this country. That's because we've become a nation of lawyers, instead of a nation of laws. When people "in the right place" can get away with anything, including murder, due to their political clout, it's time for a very few, very rare, and obviously needed extra-judicial killings. There's no other way to thin the criminal class.

The chances of that decreased significantly last November.

#6 Steve said it well.

Further, if you can't get a perp for Crime A, get'm for Crime B. I work in the frod you nit for a particularly reviled gubmint agency (The Deep Art Mint of So-called Services) and many of our clients have many irons in the fire. OK, so we couldn't prove well fair frod, but we did get'm on probashun violation, drugg fellini, par hole violation or some other thing. There's more than one way to skin a cheat.

#7 Yes pappy I got the hint, how dare I state what's widely known, or (HINT) I'll be banned.

You gonna ban everybody who's fed up with what we laughingly call Rule of LAW, when it badly needs to be changed.

Crooks today are NOT punished, the bad guys either buy their way out, are too prominent in government to arrest/sue, or are immune because they hold office, and you want to ban me for showing it needs fixing?

#8 Yes pappy I got the hint, how dare I state what's widely known, or (HINT) I'll be banned.

No, no you didn't get the hint.

Crooks today , and you want to ban me for showing it needs fixing?

"Crooks today"? Apparently you slept through History class, boyo.

Let's try this: Mods ban posters when they are trolls, spammers, or assholes. But the mods can't ban them if they troll or are an asshole once - or twice. I also can't ban a poster because I think they're a chronic jerk and "some folk just need killin'".

The point being that if the rule of law gets suspended for one case, eventually it gets suspended in a lot of cases. And it doesn't get rid of the corrupt (Bangladesh), or worse- creates a new batch of crooks who are in charge. Read up on the French and Russian Revolutions for examples. There's plenty of others.

Or if you don't want to read, just watch "Hang 'Em High".

#9 OK, explain congressman Murtha, President Obama (Who's NOT an American despite the laws)
just how were these individuals "Brought to justice?

Oh that's right, they weren't, Murtha's banned from prosecution because he's a senator, and Obama's also "Above the law? so explain please pappy, just How does this "Justice" thingy really work, when SOME folks are exempt?
HMMMM.

#11 "Hang Em High"

nice ref, Pappy. RJ: You don't want a one-size-fits-all justice, you should want a strict law with good judges with the wisdom to implement fairly. Unlike hanging the two boys with Bruce Dern

#12 Honestly, and no bullshit, I see NO oversight on Judges here, whatever is supposedly in place is simply NOT WORKING.
And lawyers run rampant.

#13 As far as Movies Go, try "Quigly down under", he did the right thing and was entirely against the (Corrupt) Law doing it.

#14 And I take strong exception for being called an "asshole" for stating the truth.

The fact is that even mods at Rantburg get jerked back harder than a dog on a choke chain.

And like a dog on a choke chain, the smart ones learn a lesson, but the dogs who won't; well their neck chafes a lot.

So take a lesson; be a man and back down for once.

#15 A Rapid Action Battallion would be a great idea for the US, as long as I was the elected king and everyone else was a peon just getting by week-to-week.

I mean, the rest of y'all are all a bunch of corrupt jerks, but I'm more pure and I am more confident of my ability to resist corruption and make the right decisions.

Sounds like Obama...

#17 Oh, HIM I don't trust with a Rapid Action Battalion.

And since he's been elected king and I haven't, well, everyone else is going to have to do without a RAB.

Sorry!

I didn't call you an asshole; that was one of the types that get banned if they're repetitive.

I implied that I consider a poster a chronic jerk.

And again, you miss the point.

#20 
Redneck Jim, you are being an asshole.

STOP IT NOW.

Yes, life is far from perfect in these United States at the moment. There is crime and corruption and very, very bad manners. But you know what? There always has been, and always will be, so long as we remain analog meat creatures with biochemical thinking processes. As for what it would be like should we actually all become electrons in the universal machine, that sounds like a perfect Hell to me, but I'm funny that way.

Stop talking like an asshole, and start behaving like the gentleman you really are. Or by God, I will ban you myself. This is your very, very last warning.
