    War was not declared, and if it were, still nonsense.

    Here's a quote for this moron. YOU COULDN'T GET A CLUE DURING THE CLUE MATING SEASON IN A FIELD FULL OF HORNY CLUES IF YOU SMEARED YOURSELF WITH CLUE MUSK AND DID THE CLUE MATING DANCE.

    It's funny, not ha-ha funny, funny none the less... if you were to see all the destroyed lives from the babies to the kids to the adults, you would agree with what Chief Gates is saying. Narrow minds never see what is really happening.

    Ahhh...Indeed, Mr. Gates. Indeed. Those who gulp a beer now and then or prefer to sip the occasional scotch and soda are the true patriots in this country.

    Do not forget that Gates was the chief of police in LA during the RFK assasination, the Marylin Monroe "suicide", and the Rodney King horse poop. So who is guilty of treason?

    Dopers never see the light. They are leeches on society and should be eliminated. Chief Gates had it right. If we could have more people like Gates, we sure as hell would not have as many liberal POSs in our cities. Dopers=Worthless!

    @Anonymous, Eugene" Shut the hell up you ignorant, brainwashed idiot, and get your head out of Anslinger's ass; go hang yourself would you. I earn more in 3 months than you probably earn all year... screw you, leech.

    Treason ? ? ? What a college professor once told me fits Anonymous, Eugene and Gates very well - that is: (-; they don't know their asymptote from a hole in their X axis ;-) Gates declared war on 'We The People', regularly having his micro police fiefdom beat people (especially kids and the more defenseless) at will, just for the fun of it. Gates made theft by his gun toting thugs a regular occurrence. It was common knowledge that the best dope in LA could be bought from his standing army. And, those are the best things I can say about the man (using the term 'man' very loosely).

    Well Daryl Gates is dead - after being forced to resign following the 1992 Los Angeles riots triggered by the Rodney King incident.

    It wasn't a loss.

    Propaganda to further the police state, the war on drugs is a failure! But a success in robbing people of constitutionally protected rights.

    I give it 1 star for showing what dumb attitudes some law enforcement folks had just recently, but the source is not given so it might not be genuine.

    Anonymous,Eugene, I can forgive your idiocy since you live in the liberal , nut capitol of the planet, Eugene, Oregon. Thank goodness that Gates is gone.

    Hmmm, "treason" the man reportedly says: a CAPITAL offense. Maybe in a perfect world, huh Daryl?

    We're in a war all right, an endless war against ignorant, supremely self-important authoritarians, people functionally blind to anything beyond their own necessarily limited perceptions, convictions and compulsions. Often they seek and attain political office, as Gates himself indicates. The worst are driven by overpowering narcissism that works to elevate the 'worth' of their personal moral convictions to a status far beyond the community's. Upon empowerment they routinely ruin not just single lives but the lives of families and whole neighborhoods as well, at huge monetary and social expense. Their success encourages legions more exactly like themselves to seek power and personal status as well.

    The U.S. Constitution was handed down by true moral giants, in large part to protect ordinary citizens from authority figures. Its fate was to be circumvented, poisoned and ultimately destroyed by the likes of Gates, Anslinger and especially Judge John Foster Symes (do you hear me, 'Nino' Scalia) ... and phalanxes of similar souls committed to the idea that compelling everyone to live and think exactly like themselves will surely make the world a safe, happy place.

    Sheesh, just giving thought to what must make these folk tick makes me want to "blast."

    Take another puff, and plow another 100 acres. My uncle was a chief of police in a large state capital, back in the day. He would say, I suspect, this guy should quit his job and have a sip and a puff, then go plow a 100acres.
