    obedience "rewards" cops by letting them get away with murder, so to speak, people in cages on wheels get cut some slack when the focus of animus is on pedestrians roaming about. I'd also argue that the reason the youth get harrassed on the sidewalks of New York is because they are perceived as harmless. The acolytes of the culture of obedience are cowards and sincerely concerned about not getting injured, if the number of times they cite fearfulness as the reason for shooting first is to be believed.
