The Difference Between The USA And China

by Brad Warbiany

Government is not reason; it is not eloquent; it is force. Like fire, it is a dangerous servant and a fearful master.
George Washington

Uighur

So what is the difference between the USA and China?

Our government is still a “dangerous servant”.
China’s is a “fearful master”.

But that line is blurring every day.

  2. Wow. Pants around the ankles, personal items strewn about, foot on the back.

    I’m probably a pretty callous person, but that picture really speaks to me….

  3. It looks from the photo like his hand might actually be ON the trigger, instead of extended forward (like pointing) the way I would suspect it should be, once the arrestee is down and secured like that.

    Isn’t that a big no-no on the cop’s part? Perhaps one of the law enforcement or ex-law enforcement professionals who post here could clarify. Maybe the safety rules are different for Commie cops.
