This is a class discussion about the balance between society’s desire for safety and the individual’s right to act freely. In a recent article, published by the New York Times on August 7, 2012, Michael Rich, an associate professor at Elan University School of Law, describes the efforts by the federal and state governments to prevent crime by eliminating the individual’s choice to commit the offensive act. After reading portions of his article below, and based on what you have learned in this course so far, post a brief comment (150-175 words) stating your opinion about the philosophical issues involved in the government’s position.

Justify your position.
