I'm ashamed to report that a USA style Police State concept has spread and has been adopted in a very far corner of Earth.
Latvia. Riga city.

What a shame, Wonder what major grocery chain, was right down the road. And how many police does it take , to confiscate some apples, and mushrooms from an 85 year old woman

What was it like during communism there? Was there a police state then? I grew up ready to duck and cover at a moment's notice and was always told that the USSR keeps its people behind barbed wire fences with machine guns--over the entire huge border. And those police sure looked benign to me compared to the our SEAL wanna be police, but I like how you are trying to do something before it grows even more out of control. Is there a newspaper in Riga that you could write a letter to the editor or a local "Patch" type site that you can spread the word? Stay Staunch. a reply to: FIFIGI
