We do have a lot of crime, but the only laws
I am aware of that "seem to perpetuate and protect – even nurture criminality in this country..." are laws that afford diplomatic immunity to some foreign nationals who take advantage of their status. Perhaps you can cite some other examples.
that do that, there are many, and if one looks at crime reports from El Paso and Phoenix one can see some of the major ones.
...while hindering and hampering citizens from protecting themselves.
That's an issue in California, Connecticut, Delaware, Hawaii, Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, and the District of Columbia, and in colleges and universities.
However, no law in Oklahoma hindered or hampered Ersland from protecting himself--until he became a felon.
Good post, by the way.
