Title: “heroes” Value Their Privacy – But Not Ours

Here’s a video showing some “heroes” unhappy about a pair of guys taking video of the outside their nest – which is public property and which the citizens therefore have every legal right to take video of.

But the “heroes” do not like this.

They never do.

Notwithstanding that it is legal. Mark that. When a law doesn’t suit them, they obey it grudgingly – or simply ignore it.

They take filming them as an implicit challenge, an affront to their privacy and peace – which of course are sacred. Whereas ours is held in absolute contempt by them, to be violated at will whenever they feel so inclined.

The law reflects this stilted standard, too.

For example, “heroes” may legally ride around in cars (paid for by us, with money taken by force from us; hence not actually their cars) with windows so deeply tinted it is impossible to see the “hero” within – but in most states, it is an offense for ordinary people to have the windows of their cars (which are actually their property, paid for by themselves ) tinted beyond even slightly.

Because it is important for “heroes” to be able to violate our privacy at will.

They insist on the tint restrictions in order to be able to – effectively – search our vehicles with no legal cause whatsoever, merely by looking inside. Which they demand they be able to do at any time  – including when they pull up beside us in traffic.

It is irrelevant that we might not wish them to be able to look inside our vehicles – very much in the same way that most of us would prefer they not examine the contents of our pockets – at least absent the formality of probable cause to suspect a criminal act, which has fallen into desuetude in these times of Keeping Us Safe.

Tinted windows prevent causal thieves from being able to see what we have inside our cars, which is a reasonable and sound idea. Regardless, they are our cars – and window tint or not has nil effect on the “safety” of other drivers, therefore there is no legitimate justification for laws making it an offense to tint them. If this were not so – if tinted windows were a “safety issue” – then tinted opaque “hero” cars are very unsafe indeed.

Of course, it has nothing to do with “safety.”

It is exactly the same as a legal requirement – probably coming soon – that non-“heroes” may not put blinds or shades up in their homes;  “safety” (“officer safety” – not our safety) will be cited as the justification when this law is introduced – as it is cited with regard to laws about window tinting.

It is a question – as per Humpty Dumpty – of which is to be master, that is all.

 

The same “heroes” who get upset when their space is violated – even though it is not actually their space (a “hero” nest is – as it’s styled – public property, paid for by the taxes extracted from the citizenry, which is why citizens have a legal right to be there and to video record there . . . for the moment) routinely violate our space.

Which is actually our space – because we pay for our homes and land, not the taxpayer.

Regardless, “heroes” trespass upon our property at will. March up to and stand menacingly on our lawns and driveways ad doorsteps – often without warrants – “just asking a few questions,” berating the owners (sic) for not being “cooperative” and “having a bad attitude.”

The thought that perhaps people do not like the presence of armed strangers they did not invite violating the privacy of their property, whom they have no interest in speaking with – and whom they regard in much the same way as a fly landing in one’s soup – never seems to occur to “heroes.”

Perhaps because the “heroes” have become to believe that they are, in fact, heroes – as opposed to what they actually are. Which is armed government workers. The mercenary troops of the government.

Law enforcers.

Over-armed, obsessed with their safety – recklessly indifferent to ours. Clueless about the growing contempt in which they are held by ordinary citizens, who grow tired of being ordered to present ID for no reason other than a “hero’s” need to assert who’s in charge. Of having their travel interrupted for no reason other than that they happen to be driving on a particular road at a particular time and now must prove they are not “drunk” or “on drugs” – despite no evidence or reason to believe that they might be.

Tired of the shaved heads, dark sunglasses, campaign hats and general’s stars.

Of demands for immediate deference and automatic obedience merely because they possess Authority. That is, because they are legally empowered to bully us.

Tired of this manufactured state of never-ending fear – which is being used to justify a regime of terrorism in the name of protecting us from it.

Enough!

Perhaps laughing at these violent, paranoid geeks is the best medicine for now – as in the video above.

Take away their mirrored sunglasses and body armor and menacing uniforms and what’s left is a species of lesser humanity, the very banality of evil Hannah Arendt wrote about after the fall of the Third Reich. Once-menacing characters such as Ernst Kaltenbrunner and the better known Adolf Eichman and their ilk – who were also law enforcers – didn’t look very menacing once they were out of uniform – and in the dock.

Perhaps one day that history will repeat, as it ought to.

Eric is complaining about tinted windows and he lives in Virginia.

The Virginia law regarding tinted vehicle windows requires that his SUV front side windows must allow more that 50% of light in. While the rear side windows and back windows on his SUV may be any darkness. They can actually be blacked out.

So, what’s Eric’s problem?

Eric has no problem. He, like the ignorant asshole here on LF, only tries to use any situation to promote their cop-hating agenda.

Let’s hope that perhaps history will some day show that these two severely disgruntled individuals discovered an agenda to devote their unproductive time to something important and socially productive.

I'm not so sure. I find other info online. I found another site with similar info for VA, based on their 1999 law.

According to this list, in Virginia you can have 50% tint on front side windows and only 35% on rear side windows or the rear window.

I see that AZ has 33% for front side windows and that you can black out all rear windows. Sensible enough in a sunny state. Saves fuel.

I was surprised to notice that my own state is pretty lax on this law. But we're very boring people here.     : )

Eric drives a SUV.

Tint darkness for SUV and vans:

  • Windshield: Non-reflective tint is allowed above the manufacturer's AS-1 line.
  • Front Side windows: Must allow more than 50% of light in.
  • Back Side windows: Any darkness can be used.
  • Rear Window: Any darkness can be used.

Back Side windows: Any darkness can be used.
Rear Window: Any darkness can be used.

Ah, I missed the "multi-purpose vehicle" exception which would apply to pickups/SUVs/vans built on a truck chassis. VA's DMV forms make it clear now.

I bet you never see a story from Edmonton again without knowing it's almost certainly about Canada. LOL

I saw bucky trying to throw it in your face on his recent thread.

Oh, I always knew there was an Edmonton, AB in Canada.

I had never heard of Edmonton, CA in Californa.

As far as Bucky goes, I mostly never read anything he posts.

I got tired of dealing with his warped-minded ignorance.

I occasionally happen upon a short post by him and take the opportunity to hit him with a zinger.

I never checked to see if his wife removed the “Mug Shot” picture of him from her FB page.

I broke out in a laugh now thinking about the picture ...
