  •  Agents of government are not in loco (4+ / 0-)

    parentis.  Agents of government are public servants who, apparently in Boston, do not know their place.  They get paid to serve.  If they don't like serving the public, they shouldn't take the job.

    •  Arbitrary use/abuse of authority is what it is (0+ / 0-)

      regardless of the vesting of that authority.  I agree that the police and related power structure are public servants and should act as such.  Unfortunately, they have been trained to be authoritarian enforcers of the status quo.  I'm sure many of them are conflicted but that duty/loyalty thing runs deep.
