Now that I'm a Ford diesel owner, I frequent a couple other forums and I've noticed a lot of people do that "bump" thing to revive an old thread while raising their post count. I don't think I've ever seen that here. Maybe the mods delete them quickly, but I doubt that, as both our mods are retards. I'M KIDDING!!!!! DON'T EDIT THIS!!!!!! Okay, you can edit it, but do it so it shows me as the man in the relationship between ebear and myself, okay? I know a lot of us have some ridiculous opinions and some dumb ass comments, but at least we (for the most part) post to make a point, and not just to do that gay-ass bump shit. Thanks, guys. Now I wonder how many fucking "bump" comments there are gonna be in this thread before our ADD kicks in and turns this thread to a running fag or fart joke. I love this place.

And I hear Duracraps

are "Heavy Duty" trucks with IFS. What kind of heavy duty truck is that? I'll unveil my Powerstoke when I've gotten my mods done. It's a 7.3, no shitty 6.0 here. My heart really wasn't in that. I haven't had the truck long enough to really get into the Ford, Government Motors, Chrysler argument yet. I admit the Cummins is a better engine than the Powerstroke, but everything I've read about the Duramax says the transmissions aren't suitable for heavy towing. then again, that's a tranny problem and not a motor problem. I just like the sound of that turbodiesel and can't wait to blow some thick black smoke into the open window of some Johhny Ricer Fast and the Furious wannabe fag with his jap car.

of a machine, quite capable of towing anything. Had a lot of Dodge guys say they wish they'd had the option of an Allison. And, FWIW the Dura is 6.6, 360HP and 650 torque. But I'm with you runs on blowing out a fuckin' rice burner any day. Maybe we could just use both our diesels and box 'em in. American firepower.

Runs

My old shop teacher in high school Darrell Poston has a 2003 F250 Lariat with a Powerstroke 7.3 diesel. Its a bad ass truck. with a truck load of students,a buggy weighed down with tools and welding equipment that truck hauled ass up a steep hill to the fair grounds. Only once did we have a problem and a pully broke on the motor. Other than that it was a bad ass beast and I would love to own one.

or possibley retarded.. whatever, just know thier both fun to talk about, sigh im getting all misty eyed about you guys.. We have a duramax (05) that has a bit less power than the new ones that Schuyler quoted, think mine is 310/605, bottom line is WAY enough, and the transmission is wonderful, the first year for the Alison T100 (i think anyway) its flat quick. Ours is a stretch cab short bed so almost the lightest gvw, and honestly hauls, the cool thing is because of the torque its as fast uphill as down (before you physics freaks get hot I might do a disclaimer, but close).. Loved it so much that when the back forced me out of bikes i bought an old ford F250, that like Runs is a 7.3.(93.rough) this is my range, P.O. general store truck, and now has over a quarter million miles on the od..no door handles on the inside.. apparantly the half life of plastic is a bit lower than iron. i have to roll the windows down to get out, and as its a XLT im waiting for the power windows to fail..

with over 260k on the odo right now. I just don't get these car companies. I see these performance products out there like the DPF delete and hear about people gutting their cats for more power, and my truck doesn't even have a DPF or cat. I guess Ford pussyfies the trucks at the factory. I know the Cummins is a better engine, but once I'm done with mine, I'll be rolling around town with a 425+ RWHP, 900 lb-ft daily driver and will kill about any Cummins around here. Like I said, I haven't owned my truck long enough to be a true-blue Ford guy, but I'm definitely a diesel man now. I have a coworker who has a pretty fast Subaru STI and one day I told him he may beat me in a race, but I'd be willing to bet I'd beat him in a tug-o-war. Course for that matter, I have more weight and better traction, I'd beat just about any Cummins in town in a tug, too. Maybe if photobear ever leaves lib land and comes to a free state, we can hook up and pull.

but the thing is, I can do anything. I'll never wish for more torque or more power like I did when I had a Ranger. It already idles up hills and I get 20mpg to boot. All the 2500/250 diesels are in the same category. I don't honestly think one is 'better' than another. When they are this good, who cares?

Have fun getting warranty work on your Government Motors vehicle done by Rahm Emanuel, huh?

CHEVROLET Cracked Head, Every Valve Rattles, Oil Leaks Every Time

CHEVROLET - Can Hear Every Valve Rattle On Long Extended Trips

CHEVROLET - Cheap, Hardly Efficient, Virtually Runs On Luck Every Time

CHEVROLET - Crappy Hot Engines, Very Rusted Out, Lose Every Time

CHEVY – Cheapest Heap Ever Visioned Yet

DODGE - Drips Oil, Drips Grease Everywhere

GM – Grinding Metal

GM - General Mistake

GM - Government Motors

GMC - Gotta Mechanic Coming!

MOPAR - Mostly Old Parts And Rusted

It's just easier for brain-dead GM and Chrysler owners (Bailout supported drivers) to come up with an acronym for a four-letter brand I suppose.

See, and I have read

the same statement was made that parts will be made in Mexico. I don't care where they're made. Maybe if we could get rid of this fuckin union labor, parts could be made here at home for a decent price. I'd love to buy American, but if quality parts can be made for less money in foreign countries, then maybe American workers should take note and stop demanding 27 bucks an hour to push a broom or drive a rivet.

things would be if business owners could run their businesses as they saw fit without government intrusion? Now I do agree with regulations enforcing truth in advertising, food quality standards, and mandatory citizenship confirmation prior to hiring, but unions should not be subsidized and should not be forced on any business or corporation. of course, I don't know exactly how that works, but I know union labor costs too much and results prices entirely too high for the quality level.

When can we as citizens defend our borders? The Governmant has failed miserably and won't do it. Do we have a legal or Constitutional Right to defend against illegals aliens, drug smuggelers and or terrorists?

The federal government is charged with providing for the common defense of the nation. However, we as citizens have the legal authority to intervene and can make arrests and use the same levels of force as the police if we see a felony being committed. I know smuggling drugs is a felony, I know committing acts of terrorism is a felony, I assume illegally entering the country is a felony, but I'm not positive on that one. There are very few things we have to fear from criminal courts if we want to take action against serious crimes, but civil court is what will kick our asses.

Under Title 8 Section 1325 of the U.S. Code, "Improper Entry by Alien," any citizen of any country other than the United States who:

Enters or attempts to enter the United States at any time or place other than as designated by immigration officers; or

Eludes examination or inspection by immigration officers; or

Attempts to enter or obtains entry to the United States by a willfully false or misleading representation or the willful concealment of a material fact;
has committed a federal crime.

Violations are punishable by criminal fines and imprisonment for up to six months. Repeat offenses can bring up to two years in prison. Additional civil fines may be imposed at the discretion of immigration judges, but civil fines do not negate the criminal sanctions or nature of the offense.

Not just ACLU

They may take a case and represent a dickhead you arrest or shoot, but there are any number of other organizations that would too. This is why laws should be rewritten in modern English and congress should stop all new legislation until the US Code can be completely reviewed and updated.

(1) Violating the immigration law is a FEDERAL CRIME

(2) Forging documents is a FEDERAL FELONY CRIME

(3) Passing forged documents is a FEDERAL FELONY CRIME

(4) Stealing ID is a FEDERAL FELONY CRIME

(5) Using stolen ID is a FEDERAL FELONY CRIME

There was a move to make it a Felony a few years ago, but the Chickenshits in Congress bowed under pressure from La Raza.

when citizen (ex-military legally carring a handgun) detained a group of illegals at a truck stop on 1-10 near tuscon. He called the police, and held the group at gun point until they arrived. Later he was charged with kidnapping and some kind of firearms charge. I'm pretty sure he's still doing time.

is all the felonies require investigation or spontaneous statements in order to charge someone with and unless you know beyond a reasonable doubt that a wetback you catch crossing has done so more than once.

Citizens' Arrest

CONSTITUTIONAL BUSINESS

Post Office Box 90, Hull, Massachusetts 02045

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Citizens' Arrest
By David C. Grossack, Constitutional Attorney
Common Law Copyright © 1994
All Rights Reserved

Not long ago the politically correct Boston Globe noticed a "shocking" new trend. It seems as if some citizens of Massachusetts were so fed up with crime that they have begun to intervene in petty street crime afflicting the streets of our cities. Thieves and pickpockets in Massachusetts should exercise caution in where and how they ply their craft as the chances that vigilantes pummel them and drag them to the nearest cop are definitely on an upswing. While the Globe is shocked at this healthy trend, students of the law should note that both a statutory and common law basis for a certain degree of "vigilante behavior" is well founded. Indeed, in an era of lawlessness it is important that readers be advised as to their lawful right to protect their communities, loved ones and themselves by making lawful citizens' arrests. The purpose of this essay is to simply explain the law and the historical context of the citizen's arrest.

First, what is an arrest?

We can thank Black's Law Dictionary for a good definition: "The apprehending or detaining of a person in order to be forthcoming to answer an alleged or suspected crime." See Ex parte Sherwood, (29 Tex. App. 334, 15 S.W. 812).

Historically, in Anglo Saxon law in medieval England citizen's arrests were an important part of community law enforcement. Sheriffs encouraged and relied upon active participation by able bodied persons in the towns and villages of their jurisdiction. From this legacy originated the concept of the posse comitatus which is a part of the United States legal tradition as well as the English. In medieval England, the right of private persons to make arrests was virtually identical to the right of a sheriff and constable to do so. (See Inbau and Thompson, Criminal Procedure, The Foundation Press, Mineola, NY 1974.

A strong argument can be made that the right to make a citizen's arrest is a constitutionally protected right under the Ninth Amendment as its impact includes the individual's natural right to self preservation and the defense of the others. Indeed, the laws of citizens arrest appear to be predicated upon the effectiveness of the Second Amendment. Simply put, without firepower, people are less likely going to be able to make a citizen's arrest. A random sampling of the various states as well as the District of Columbia indicates that a citizen's arrest is valid when a public offense was committed in the presence of the arresting private citizen or when the arresting private citizen has a reasonable belief that the suspect has committed a felony, whether or not in the presence of the arresting citizen.

In the most crime ridden spot in the country, our nation's capitol, District of Columbia Law 23- 582(b) reads as follows:

(b) A private person may arrest another -

(1) who he has probable cause to believe is committing in his presence -

(A) a felony, or

(B) an offense enumerated in section 23-581 (a)(2); or

(2) in aid of a law enforcement officer or special policeman, or other person authorized by law to make an arrest.

(c) Any person making an arrest pursuant to this section shall deliver the person arrested to a law enforcement officer without unreasonable delay. (July 29, 1970, 84 Stat. 630, Pub. L. 91-358, Title II, § 210(a); 1973 Ed., § 23-582; Apr. 30, 1988, D.C. Law 7-104, § 7(e), 35 DCR 147.)

In Tennessee, it has been held that a private citizen has the right to arrest when a felony has been committed and he has reasonable cause to believe that the person arrested committed it. Reasonable grounds will justify the arrest, whether the facts turn out to be sufficient or not. (See Wilson v. State, 79 Tenn. 310 (1833).

Contrast this to Massachusetts law, which while permitting a private person to arrest for a felony, permits those acquitted of the felony charge to sue the arresting person for false arrest or false imprisonment. (See Commonwealth v. Harris, 11 Mass. App. 165 (1981))

Kentucky law holds that a person witnessing a felony must take affirmative steps to prevent it, if possible. (See Gill v. Commonwealth, 235 KY 351 (1930.)

Indeed, Kentucky citizens are permitted to kill fleeing felons while making a citizen's arrest (Kentucky Criminal Code § 37; S 43, §44.)

Utah law permits citizen's arrest, but explicitly prohibits deadly force. (See Chapter 76-2-403.)

Making citizen's arrest maliciously or without reasonable basis in belief could lead to civil or criminal penalties. It would obviously be a violation of a suspect's civil rights to use excessive force, to torture, to hold in unsafe or cruel conditions or to invent a reason to arrest for the ulterior motive of settling a private score.

Civil lawsuits against department stores, police departments, and even cult deprogrammers for false imprisonment are legend. Anybody who makes a citizens arrest should not use more force than is necessary, should not delay in turning the suspect over to the proper authorities, and should never mete out any punishment ... unless willing to face the consequences.

As the ability of the powers that be to hold society together and preserve law and order diminishes, citizen's arrests will undoubtedly be more common as a way to help communities cope with the wrongdoers in out midst.
