... States. The first part of Wilson's plan is to train police to be able to spot people that look like they are carrying guns. How does one pick someone out of a crowd that looks like they are carrying a gun? I don't think it is possible to look at someone and tell if they are carrying a gun or not. That is ridiculous. Just because of the way someone looks doesn't mean that they are carrying a gun. What criteria should be used to determine if someone looks like when they are carrying a gun? Do they put on baggy pants with a do-rag before they put the gun in their pants or pocket? As of right now, there is not one, and never will be one. I know many people ...

This relates with the communism system of proletarian ideology and a new social system. It is different than any other ideological and social system, and exemplifies many characteristics.

... Wilson stated that during 1960’s, British physicians were allowed to prescribe heroin to addicts until the number of addicts increased fivefold. He argued that cocaine is not a “victimless crime.” Addicts victimize children by neglect and spouses by not providing (370).
