Anecdotal observation: police had become scarcer in my town as the economic situation began to affect city budgets. Last week, I noticed a marked decline in patrol cars during my shift.
Today, I'm seeing even more than usual. I'm talking Mardi Gras-levels of police activity, nowhere near downtown.
If my tiny city is doing this, I'm sure others are. Stay safe and be careful.
Curfews are a great example of how law works in this country. They don't create the curfew because they think it will prevent a behavior from happening, they create the curfew because they want a legal reason to throw you in jail and attack you. they create laws as justification to target specific people they hate.
i love music, cars, Linux/(free and) open source software, linguistics, philosophy, and psychology.
