Yet another
victim of the war on drugs.

Because criminals never dress up as cops... Because the police always make sure they've got the correct address... Because police always knock first and identify themselves when busting drug dealers... Because prohibition works... Because police who'd just killed a 92 year old woman would have no motive or opportunity to plant or conceal evidence...

Male thieves

A bare face is a pretty mild social norm to be expected to conform to when assimilating into a larger existing culture. There is a difference between sensitivity and hypersensitivity. Compromise must be a two way street or else it's just submission.

Yup. The
use of human shields is a war crime. What a novel thought. I wonder why it's one of the oldest rules of war that combatants should wear uniforms... Perhaps because anyone with an ounce of honor understands that deliberately targeting women and children is barbaric.
