You have to look at each point seperatly. Sometimes 1 is low and sometimes 1 means high.

In that case 1 is low and 5 is high

If they are refering to military expenditure, 1 is correct for Germany

Be careful when making country-to-country comparisons: .....Particularly crime statistics!

Norway has a total population of approximately 4.6 million people, and a relatively homogenous population, with no significant "minority group" issues.

The United States, on the other hand, has a population of over 300 million citizens PLUS an additional 30 million illegal aliens. <span class="ev_code_yellow">(Note that our "illegal alien contingent" is SIX TIMES the size of Norway's total population!)</span>

In addition to having a vastly larger population, the U.S. is probably one of the most "diverse" countries on the planet, with many distinct minority groups. Many of these groups are not "fully compatible" with each other. (....or to put it another way, they have different "social outlooks".)

So; ......It's not terribly surprising that our criminal statistics look different.

.......And concerning the comment that; <span class="ev_code_red">"here in Norway the police do not wear guns, cause it is not needed...":</span>

In many countries, the police are not routinely armed; .....normally because the Military is readily available to deal with serious armed confrontations.

In the United States, the Military is constitutionally prohibited from operating internally without direct orders from a State Governor, or higher official: .....This means that our police are pretty much on their own, and consequently need to be armed.

I personally approve of this arrangement, as "Criminal Justice" and "Constitutional Law" are typically NOT part of the training that your average SAS, or Special Forces guy has received.

Turning out to be another typical Ontario summer, hot and humid, but we get the odd day without the humidity.

Hey! Got my first ever speeding ticket last fall. I was whipping down a country road and got nailed by a mobile radar coming the other way. He just popped over the top of the hill and had me dead to rights. Clocked me doing 100 kph in a 70 zone. The penalty for that is 3 demerit points and a fine of about $200. I used a traffic paralegal service and pled it down to 15 over; zero demerit points and a fine of $52.80.

On another note, I finally was able to test my Charger on a long flat stretch of road. I'm a bit bummed out, but really shouldn't be, that it only tops out at 185 kph, even though the speedometer indicates to 220. It seems to hit a flat spot and sticks there, which makes me suspect the engine is governed. I bet the Hemi Charger would bury the needle. What's the fastest you've done with your new FW190 Bimmer?

I've lucky and not had a run in with the law...I have been stopped twice by the friendly local sheriff and just wanted to give me a warning. One for avoiding the speed bumps in a parking lot...he really must have been bored.

Although I do have the sport package on my 330xi, it is still limited to 135 mph. If it wasn't AWD then the upper limit would be 165 mph. Those are the governed limits BMW puts on their USA import vehicles.

I've had it up to about 110 mph on I-95 when some knucklehead in a nissan 350Z wanted to give me a run for my money.

Either I'm going to buy the next warranty package (>40,000miles) or I might just trade it in for the newly issued, twin turbo, 300hp, AWD 335xi...never know when you have to get to the ski slopes fast.

Perfect, great comeback KL...Here's more on the Posse Comitatus Act:

Posse Comitatus Act (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Posse_Comitatus_Act)

Federal Troops can assist in surveillance along the borders, but they cannot actually execute the local laws

Celeon999
06-10-2007, 02:36 AM
This is interesting as we have a debate going on in Germany for quite some time now to alter our laws regarding that topic.


Some politicians want to change the basic law so that the army can operate within the country under certain circumstances.

Their argument is that the police alone cannot guarantee the protection of mass events like the football world cup for example.

There are simply not enough policemen available to guarantee protection of everything which might be a valuable target for terrorists.

They believe that it would be helpful if the military was allowed to assist the police in such cases.

Such a drastic change of the constitution is of course controversial.

But the main point of controversy is that exactly this was done before in german history, by the nazi party.

With that move, the nazis gained total control of the country as they now had the power to persecute simply everyone and every institution which they declared to be a threat to internal security.

The police couldnt be ordered to do all this as the law prohibited that, but the military could as they were not bound to these laws.

They became the main tool of power as they had to follow all orders they were given under this new law.

With that move the police was suddenly out of power and the military became the main instrument of the nazi's political goals.

Things like the Posse Comitatus Act were brought in place to prevent exactly this.

klcarroll
06-10-2007, 09:03 AM
The problem is compounded by our "lawyer saturated" society. If even one step in the investigation and arrest procedure is missed, critical evidence or even entire cases end up being thrown out as "inadmissible". This has forced the Law Enforcement Officers to become more than half lawyers themselves; .....and explains why many Police Departments REQUIRE new recruits to have college degrees in Criminal Justice and Constitutional Law.

If the Military, using standard military procedures, was charged with law enforcement; ......we would be lucky if one case in ten even made it to court before being dismissed.

Hah! Yeah....I have to admit, I've never bought into the whole religious thing either.

I remember when my mother became a Neoconservative in the United States, she tried very hard to find Jesus--and, as my father and I expected, she didn't. So, she went back to chanting Buddhist mantras and hitting a wooden block.

It's probably no coincidence that Taiwanese who do convert always seem to be Presbyterians..... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/winky.gif
