This discussion on the limits of legal liability for assualt by government agents ensued after an article titled, “A Black realtor who was handcuffed by police in Michigan as he was showing a home to a Black father and his son has filed a lawsuit” was posted to the r/Libertarian subreddit. Enjoy!
The borrower in a foreign currency is a speculator, a graduate of “exotic” studies is a consumer of luxury goods, and the founder of the family is the president of a home micro-company.
