  •  I am tempted to call the DC police (6+ / 0-)

    non emergency line and tell them I'm planning on bowling for pedestrians with my car today, and maybe for the next month or so, depending on how amusing I find the activity, and I just want to double check to make sure that as long as my traffic light is green, that this A-OKAY with them, and I should expect to encounter no troubles from the police.  They have set a precedent here.  Maybe I'll ask if the make of my car and my address has any bearing on how lenient they plan to be with me on my planned bowling activities.  It's clearly ok to bowl with a late model Lexus, and a posh zip code, but what if my bowling car is a 1990's model chevy venture?  What if my zip code is de-classe; will that still be ok?

    For anyone who decides I'm just making random assumptions based on hatred of the 1% or whatever, since the official story is that the protesters ran toward the car, please watch the video to see how well it matches the official story before you decide to comment.

    •  There is another precedent the police are setting: (1+ / 0-)

      if they refuse to uphold the law, then they are encouraging people to take the law into their own hands.  If the authorities fail to carry out their responsibilities, then who becomes the law?

      This is a prime example of how corrupt our leaders have become and how they have created two sets of laws: one for the 1% (a get out of jail card for free) and one for the 99% (you're screwed no matter what you do)...
