Re: Duhfish So when the police break the law, it's called 'being reckless'.

"The only way - the only way - to ensure that these laws are not misused is to write the laws to specifically restrict what is and is not allowed and under what circumstances and with what authorisation and to clearly lay down that actions that fall outside of those specific criteria are breaches of the law."

I'm sure human civilisation will eventually reach a point where that happens FOR THE FIRST TIME. Unless the heat death of the universe occurs first of course, which right now looks like a very real possibility.
