Great piece Mr Smith, but you're wasting your words trying preach common sense and truth to those who are unhinged.

Mr Lo Piccolo,
Since you don't quite understand the freedom of speech thing, I'll spell it out for you in simple terms. Non offensive speech doesn't need to be protected. Somewhere, somehow, someone will be offended by something you say, therefore, all speech is sacred and should remain free of any and all restrictions.
And, by the way, the savage animals who attacked Charlie Hebdo would just as soon kill you and your family as look at you, no matter how non offensive your words are to them.

Most "potential" voters know more about deflated footballs and the Kardashans rear ends than they know about their elected representatives. And the politicians like it that way.

Great editorial, I couldn't have said better myself. Perhaps those still supporting Silver have something to hide. If Silver squeals to save his own hide, perhaps many more of his supporters will also find themselves on the wrong side of the law.
More than likely this will turn into a long drawn out circus like the Bruno trial, and the end result will be a big bill to the taxpayers with no punishment.
Bruno and Silver(along with many others) should be sharing a prison cell for the rest of their lives.

Excellent points Mr Morrill. It's refreshing to see a young person who's engaged and well informed. I hope the ministers of propaganda in your school system don't use their twisted logic to try to censor you.

The title of this piece should be "The tale of two bankrupt nepotistic societies, and the corrupt families who created them"

Mr Lo Piccolo,
You are absolutely right, in fact, your letter didn't go far enough. I hope you'll be contacting me to tell me exactly how I should think, what I should wear, where I should live, what I should drive, and any other changes we should make so as not to offend you. I'm sure you have detailed and specific "living" instructions for all of us who don't conform to your "perfect", enlightened, and non offensive way of life. Some of the greatest leaders(monsters) in history, and currently in power (dictators), share your opinions. Sharia law comes to mind, perhaps that would be a good place for you to start.
I write this tongue in cheek due to the fact a person of your mindset is far beyond reasonable dialogue, however since I am highly offended by your words, do I have the right to advocate you being silenced?

National Defense? You mean like the Pentagon, the feeding trough for corrupt politicians and their friends to make millions while the boots on the ground in harms way make less than minimum wage? I don't think so.
As far as the troopers, law enforcement is not a commodity which can be purchased. Comparing them to a commodity like health insurance, and health care is not apples to apples. Health insurance can be very easily be purchased without government involvement by those of us who choose to work, therefore earning money to buy things like health insurance from many providers in the private sector.

Chuck, Can you give me one instance of the government (local, state, federal) sticking their nose in, and improving things?

Another irresponsible misguided editorial. You advocate moving responsibility up the chain of command. Perhaps it should be moved right up to Eric (thank god he's leaving)Holder, the most biased unfit AG the country has ever seen. Holder had the unmitigated gall to run to Ferguson after the criminal Michael Brown attacked officer Darren Wilson. Did he meet with officer Wilson? Of course not, his warped agenda took him to visit "community activists" and other rabble rousers, rather than visiting the officer who had his face bashed in by a criminal who was obviously trying to kill him.
The further up the chain you go, the more politicized and removed issues become. The local level is by far the most accountable to the people, and issues should stay local.
