If "ignorance of the law is no excuse," then why are cops exempted by the U.S. Supreme Court from following the same dictum?
By an 8-1 ruling, cops are permitted by the "men in black" (yes, the three feminists as well) to "misread law" (i.e., be ignorant of the law they are empowered to enforce) — to the benefit of the revenuers which most cops have become.
But we — mere peons and serfs that we are expected to be (not "citizens of states," but "taxpayers" and "customers of the IRS") — must scrupulously obey the millions of technicalities in every law, even if we had not heard of most of them, or they are outdated. We, the people of the united States, are not free to "misread" any of the laws to our benefits.
Open your homes to the cops and tax collectors.
Give the UN and Islam your first through last born. Nancy Pelosi awaits your "excess income" (i.e., what is left to you after their extorted taxes).
We are now just fodder for the apt title often affixed to tyrannies like we are becoming: Borg. Up is down. Good is bad. Gender is fluid. Abandon hope all ye who enter the United States of America.
Oh, but perhaps I "mis-spoke," like so many of our "paragonistas" of late? Perhaps not! Logic has died.
To her credit, Justice Sonia Sotomayor dissented, making the conservative and libertarian argument:
"One wonders how a citizen seeking to be law-abiding and to structure his or her behavior to avoid these invasive, frightening, and humiliating encounters could do so. In addition to these human consequences — including those for communities and for their relationships with the police — permitting mistakes of law to justify seizures has the perverse effect of preventing or delaying the clarification of the law."
