Yeah; the cops can wear masks but not the people. Imo, "fascism" is our primary enemy right now; but most of us don't even know it. It's becoming easier to imagine how it happened in Germany; it wouldn't take much more for it to happen again in our lifetime; maybe it's already begun? Ever noticed what the US secret Service calls itself? SS ! Paulrevere2005 14:00, 28 August 2005 (UTC)

  • Actually legally preventing the cops from hiding their faces is a nice idea. Nyarlathotep 17:36, 28 August 2005 (UTC)
  • That won't happen in our police state. Paulrevere2005 03:34, 29 August 2005 (UTC)
  • You'd be surprised what people can accomplish when the mood strikes them. What it would take is convincing lots of people in the main stream left, who don't support all the protests, that cops shouldn't be able to hide their faces. You also get the police equipment manufacturers on board, as it means the police need to buy all new see through helmets, and build a cool looking demo helmets. It would not hurt to have a patent on some nice piece of helmet technology too, like a better cusioning system, or better lighter bullet proof plexy glass.. or transperent sun blocking stuff. One highly interested commercial loby and some political noise could make it happen. Nyarlathotep 11:03, 29 August 2005 (UTC)
  • I've never thought about that, Paul... In our tiny city of 2500 there is a law in the municipal code prohibiting "citizens over the age of 10 to go masked in the streets of the city" -- $50 fine for violating the ordinance (or jail time, depending on the city judge). --Chiacomo (talk) 03:43, 29 August 2005 (UTC)


MPs -> MHRs[edit]

Since these 2 are both in the lower house (House of Representatives), whouldn't "MHRs" be more appropriate in title? Thanx 69.142.2.68 07:08, 29 August 2005 (UTC)
