I’m absolutely not a fan of cops, but if the choice is between a heavily-armed organization that has the possibility to be controlled through the democratic process and proper oversight, or a heavily-armed organization that is absolutely answerable to no one by themselves, I will reiterate the cops’ actual standing as a mechanism of authority every single time.

Wow! Thank you. I’d not heard of this guy before. I’ll need to chase up his work; it looks right up my Tinpan Alley. “Quickly, boy wonder, to the Internet Fleapit! Adventure awaits!”
Criterion Channel just added a bunch of his stuff recently. Currently they have 21 of his 67 films, but not Bring Me the Head of Tim Horton !
Love the Carl Spackler hat
