Isn't there one where they shoot arrows, too?
Extraordinary claims of the bible don't even have ordinary evidence.

Kids aren't paying attention most of the time in science classes so it seems silly to get worked up over ID being taught in schools.

Just wait until Ferguson police get federally funded drones


 In 2007, the department's science and technology arm “contracted for the development of the 'LED Incapacitator,' a nauseating strobe” weapon meant to overwhelm and disorient targets with rapid, random pulses of light.

As long as they don't bleed on any officers, they won't won't be arrested for destruction of property.

A god is like a rock: it does absolutely nothing until someone or something forces it to do something. The only capability the rock has is doing nothing until another force compels it physically to move.

The AC: cops with war toys.
If the state is to keep its compact with the people, which is to maintain order and safeguard persons and property in return for cooperation, it must focus on preventing crime, not responding to it. Preventing crime in turn requires information, which police obtain by talking to citizens. Citizens are comfortable talking to police who are “Officer Friendly,” the nice-guy cop on the beat whose uniform, equipment, and demeanor are unthreatening. Few people like shooting the breeze with one of Darth Vader’s storm troopers.
