You shouldn't say 0.0% as you really can't have accuracy greater than ~1% with sample size of just 102 people.

@TheChief he was arrested for that in the past, and he was already handcuffed, if those police weren't sadists that felt like breaking a man's back they would have secured him, but they didn't, the fact that you would defend such a brutal act of murder is disgusting.

Maybe if cops weren't murdering kids all the time people wouldn't run, but now you'll defend the murder of children too. Are you trying to be a scum bag, or does it come naturally?

"Officers are protecting us"

Yeah, right.

Oh my god, you're really defending a slave owning rapist. I know he claimed to be anti-slavery, he still owned hundereds of them and raped them :) oh his fucking of a human being who he owned as property and could have easily killed, or could have tortured, or whose children he could have killed, or sold, or tortured was consensual? Do you consider rape at gunpoint consensual too? Jesus fucking Christ, Sally Hemings tried to leave him in France where she could be free, the only reason she stayed was because he promised to free her children. She clearly wanted to be free and stop being his little rape toy.

Oh, I was unaware that the founding fathers set up conditions to prevent the heinous shit that happened in the gilded age. Oh wait, they didn't.
I also forgot the part where they made it illegal to rape and murder slaves, oh wait they didn't.
So much for protection.

Or that you ignoring the 14th amendment of a document you fucking worship when you think it's beneficial makes it obvious.

No, it's not. I also never said I hated the constitution, I have merely said its ineffectual. Keep up now.

Because as I stated I believe people are entitled to certain human rights and liberties. I guess arguing with a strawman is more convenient.

A straight line is a line that goes directly forward with no curves or bends in it. Pretty simple. A good government isn't insanely corrupt, doesn't commit war crimes, and so on. Pretty simple

@TheChief 1) "your kind"? glad you're at least being blunt about your disgust by those different from you.
Except we aren't changing the constitution, the 14th amendment has been a thing for a while :)
They can support what they want, they can't force religious laws on people.

2) I've shown nothing but ambivalence toward it because it's just a piece of paper that fails to do what it is meant to. You're ignoring the 14th amendment, which I bring up not because I'm gonna pretend to care about the constitution, but because you're being a hypocrite.

What ever happened to that "democracy is evil" song and dance? I guess when it comes to oppressing groups you dislike you're all for it.

@TheChief 1) Yes you are, no one who actually treats gays like people supports them not having equal rights, just be open about being a bigot, it's less pathetic. I'm not defining their lives, they just want to limit my freedom to do something that doesn't impact them in any way. They can cling to their religious institutions, but their fairy tales don't get to dictate legal institutions that everyone else deals with, or let's them lord over people.
2) it's a piece of paper that can't even do the only noble thing it sets out to do, and I'm not even ignoring it, you are.

@TheChief 1).Stop being opposed to people having equal rights and maybe they'll be more respectful towards your imaginary friends :)
2). Exactly, no one should be able to force their religion's laws into actual laws.

@TheChief opinions are one thing, forcing your fairy tale books laws into law merely because your book says so is another

Yeah, wish it was that way in the US of A... I don't have anything against religious people, but I'm getting tired of explaining to people that "The Bible says..." isn't a fucking justification for lawmaking when the first rule on the primary law document of the countries specifies quite clearly that the government is not allowed to give a shit what the Bible or any other holy text says.

@TheChief 1) yeah, sure. Just grow a pair and admit to being a bigot pls.
I'm interpreting it the way it's written, everyone is to be treated equally by the law. Pretty simple if you aren't blinded by a desire to oppress gays.

2) I've shown contempt for crooked, racist, sexist, elitist wannabe oligarchs. The constitution is just a piece of paper, and it's a living document so. I merely said it isn't perfect and fails to protect people's rights, so meh.

No, you did. You also compared a leader whose economic policies you disliked to a dictator who raped people with dogs :)

How many youngsters are there in Iceland? If the whole population is a little over 300'000, then 102 youngsters is actually quite a big part of all young icelanders.

This comment section is pretty heated, and i think that everyone should read the Virginia Statutes for Religious Freedom https://cas.umw.edu/clpr/files/2011/09/Jefferson-Statute-2-versions.pdf

And yet a large proportion of Icelanders believe in Elves.
Which proves G.K. Chesterton's observation that when you don't believe in God, you don't believe in nothing, -- you believe in anything.
