Ferguson fallout: Do the police really need 12,000 bayonets? - CSMonitor.com

(...) Sen. Rand Paul (R) of Kentucky was, for his part, particularly puzzled about why 12,000 bayonets have been made available to police departments, and asked Estevez for his thoughts on the matter. 

“I cannot answer what use bayonets would be,” Estevez said.

“I can answer it for you,” Senator Paul said. “None.”

I would also like to know how much money was spent, how many troops or drones deployed, how many innocent people have died overseas and how many civil rights were sacrificed here at home to prevent this as well as water skiing in the dark.  You are a businessman, notwithstanding the morality of it all, you of all people should understand this is about cost benefit analysis not fear and conjecture. Fear and conjecture is the business of DHS, NSA, law enforcement and the military industrial complex.

Sorry, but bullshit.

This is really speculative, but I'm very confident in saying that In Beverly Hills, or any area with a majority white population, we might have been detained if we were wearing substantially similar clothing to a description, but not simply for being white (and maybe tall). I doubt we would have been handcuffed, or made to sit on a curb for 45 minutes. We certainly wouldn't have spent 6+ hours dealing with the incident with limited representation. And if any of that presented itself as a possibility we would have felt just fine speaking up asking for representation with minimal fear of retaliation.

I get what you are saying. The police certainly have a number of incidents where it can be shown they acted beyond their positions. This is even one of those cases. But the only reason they did it here is because of race. To try and make this a broader indictment or to claim "if a white person had robbed that bank and the perp had reasonable descriptive similarities as you and I and we were in the area this very well could happen to us as well" is dishonest and reduces the impact of the argument you are trying to make. 

Not every molehill is your mountain.

Uh, not very often. And it was certainly his race that caused this and not any other proximate cause. The only component of the description of the bank robber that he fit was black (and maybe tall).  How many tall white guys were detained the last time (or the last 20 times) a white guy robbed a bank/store?

This simply doesn't happen to you and me. Even if in the region of a crime, I'm extremely unlikely to even be detained. If detained, I'll be treated better, which would result in a much better outcome.  They didn't even tell him why they were detaining him (and he probably very smartly didn't insist on an explanation of the charges). You or I would probably have a chance to plead our case and get our friends sitting nearby to vouch for us.  

Your adding the "notwithstanding" makes it look like you think this is a minor contributing factor, when it is in fact the main overriding factor, without which this wouldn't be a story.
