if you try to put someone in prison or take away something from them but you can't get physical the criminal could always say "no i won't do that"... what would you as police do then? they use physical violence to put you in prison
In a society where guns are impossible to obtain, is it necessary for lethal force to be used against anyone who violates the rules and regulations of the community? And would it truly be necessary for the stringent and often pointless laws in place now to be maintained in a utopia?
not realtet to the argument itself: could you please put your 'but'-premises under the premises you are attacking. your premise has nothing to do with my claim that there are weapons that are non-lethal
Statistically speaking police are just as likely to violate the law as other people (in some cases such as domestic assault they are actually more likely); therefore they should not be trusted with fairly enforcing the law.
What is a weapon in this case? Are hands weapons if they can kill you? What about tools, like a wrench, that can easily be used to harm you? We must know something more fundamental about what this claim is claiming.
