posts this on his Pro Libertate blog. News in a similar vein comes from the land of the midnight sun where an obviously deranged individual was given the death penalty without benefit of judicial proceedings by the Alaska state troopers, as reported here by the Fairbanks News-Miner. Notice at the end of the article that there are two guides to human behavior in Alaska, the law, violation of which can get one eternal rest in a casket, and law enforcement policy, an unrelated concept that specifies that the name of the trooper performing the execution won't be released for 72 hours. In other words, there are two kinds of "laws", one for proletariat and a different one for the superior beings of state coercion. Also take note of the fact, as presented by the troopers, that the impetus for this incident was the now deceased driver's failure to signal a right-hand turn. This omission would likely have been overlooked or ignored during daylight hours but not so at 4 in the morning, when cops will use any excuse to initiate a possible DUI arrest. We have no way of knowing, in fact, if the driver actually didn't signal, it's simply the statement of law enforcement attempting to justify the subsequent execution.
