Once a neighborhood is declared a "Neighborhood Safety Zone" DeeCee Police will stop all vehicles entering these zones and demand identification proving that the driver lives in the neighborhood, or provide a -- and let me be accurate here -- "legitimate reason to enter the neighborhood".
Anyone not providing
Anyone objecting to being refused entry into the "Neighborhood Safety Zone" will face arrest for failing to obey police.
This sort of bushwa is EXACTLY what you bloody well get when the sodding government is the only folks allowed to carry guns. This sort of absolute felching gradoo is EXACTLY what you get when the citizens are disarmed.
Shame on the DC Police department. Shame! You are supposed to be peace officers, not some mouth-breathing knock-off of the gods-be-damned gestapo. And that goes double for Mayor Fenty, Police Chief Cathy Lanier and Attorney General Peter Nickles. Where, in the name of all that's holy, do you think that you are, World War 2 Warsaw?
What is next? Tell me, do. What is next -- issuing various coloured triangles to undesirables?
You two-bit, four-flushing, knock-off, arrogant, el-cheapo tin-plate Mussolinis. You pack of dime-store Himmlers with delusions of adequacy.
This. Is. America. You have obviously forgotten this.
American citizens do not -- I will say again my last, slowly, for the DC City Government -- American citizens do not need to give a reason -- legitimate or otherwise -- for driving anywhere on any Freyja-be-damned tax-payer-funded public sodding street.
How dare you stop a tax-paying American citizen driving on a tax-payer funded American street and demand -- demand, by God! -- a "legitimate reason to enter the neighborhood" ... here's your "legitimate reason" -- damn your eyes -- because I want to and it's none of your penguin-squicking business!
To think it would come to this -- in the Capital City of our Nation -- a city in which is enshrined the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution and the Bill of Rights -- that the public servants of the citizens of that city would happily indulge in the signature evil of the police state.
Tell me, truly -- are you going to train your cops to say, "Papieren, bitte" before demanding a "legitimate reason" to be about on a public road? Just to make the whole process complete?
Or will you teach them the phrase in Russian? Maybe Chinese?
Why the lot of you haven't been horse-whipped around the courthouse square for even daring to suggest this crap is beyond me.
