Are We a Nation of Laws or a Nation of Men?

Lots on this topic this weekend on teh Intrawebz.  This post will be "more linky than thinky" as Kevin says.  

How about the Obama justice department intervening to throw out a "slam dunk" voter intimidation case against those Black Panthers who were hanging out in Philadelphia with clubs and such? (H/T to WSRA)

How about an Impeach Holder movement?  Where do I sign?

Life without the rule of law (WROL) is a thread over at Restore the Constitution and on YouTube with NutnFancy who I typically think of as "gun review guy".

More?  How about the peaceful tea party guy who gets mugged by a left wing thug, and then the guy who got assaulted got charged with assault?   H/T Jennifer III

How about a guy being charged with a crime for rescuing a girl who fell out of a boat in a dangerous river?   H/T to John at Improved Clinch, although this was on Fox News all weekend. 
Clear Creek sheriff's deputies on Thursday arrested a rafting guide for swimming to a stranded young rafter who had tumbled from his boat on Clear Creek.
Ryan Daniel Snodgrass, a 28-year-old guide with Arkansas Valley Adventures rafting company, was charged with "obstructing government operations," said Clear Creek Sheriff Don Krueger.  (emphasis added)
Can't have mere subjects interfering with a government operation.  They could plan their rescue for hours, and he just went and rescued the girl.  What good is that?

My view: we are a nation of laws, most of the times.  Until it suits the men who run things, then we are under their rule.
