Re: Community policing and undercover police
Story- when I was in college a hundred years ago, there were student members of the campus police. A small group of us were, shall we say, being rowdy, and the campus police showed up. One of them was a student I knew. I looked at her, she looked at me, and I said, "OK, we'll be quiet now." The "real" officer looked at her in awe.
It didn't hurt that I was madly in love with her....
Undercover cops- I think it's a lot like journalists. If a journalist is there to observe and report on a story, that's fine. If they participate, become part of the story, not so fine. If there is a large public gathering and a plainclothes cop is there in the crowd, I don't see that as an issue. If he is holding a sign, pretending to be for or against what's going on, or incites any action, that is way over the line.
OMG. Thoughts are not energy, they are a biochemical process. Autistic people are not telepathic; no one is. This sounds like a reformulation of "indigo children". The kid's mantra use sounds like a decent technique obviously, though a bit Bokononist.
"Erythrophobically ugly"? With fear of the color red?
Mathboy..... if thoughts are not (electrical) energy, how exactly does an EEG work?
Must be magic.....
Where can I find a link to the officer who talks about his expierences with Occupy on youtube?
