And that’s the bitch about having ideals like the Bill of Rights: it applies to everyone, whether you like them or not. Imagine trying to tell someone that they’re not allowed protection under the 1st Amendment because they’re crazy or angry.

To answer your question: I want my crazy and angry people to have the same rights as I do, because that’s how rights work. I’d rather find out why they’re crazy or angry, and see if we can help them to avoid the violence.
