Working the Beat

Is that a nightstick in your pocket, or...

Nah, the joke is too easy. The reality is disturbing: a police officer in New Jersey was caught masturbating at a Starbucks restaurant. To protect and (self) serve, indeed.

Once again, in case you're keeping score: not on any registry. Meanwhile, let's harass people for not living where they're supposed to, and let's haul out tape measures to find out that someone was living 18 feet closer to a school than they allowed.

Someone please explain to me how being 18 feet closer than 1000 feet puts children at risk. You can't, because it doesn't make sense. Meanwhile, you've got cops distributing child porn and masturbating at restaurants. Tell me, where does the real risk lie?

Wake up.

What is equally true is that every community gets the kind of law enforcement it insists on."
