Wow, the bill hasn't even taken effect yet. Then again, Joe the sheriff & his lackeys have been (illegally) doing this and worse for a while now. All
you guys who said this would never happen, why aren't you outraged an American was treated as second class?
You do realize it's just a hop and skip from being required to carry a birth certificate to being implanted with a chip, right? In fact, Governments
around the world, including Mexico, are routinely chipping their federal employees.
Actually, this is nothing new. In many northern cities such as Portland, New York, and Chicago, when just walking down the street you can be racially
profiled, illegally searched, and hauled off to jail for not having identification. Know that you have the right to tell them to bring a fingerprint
scanner to the location to prove your identity. Be warned, it may take a while, and they might slap you around a bit, and belittle you.
Here's an example that happened to me. I had just walked across the street from my home to go to the store. I was stopped, saying someone who fit my
description had broken into somebodies house. Mind you, I was going to get some coffee for my sleepy head and was in pajamas (who robs a home in fuzzy
slippers?!), not even thinking I needed ID to walk across the street. They handcuffed me and sat me on the curb. After running my name, and nothing
coming up, they were going to take me in anyway to prove my identity. The most ridiculous aspect of the situation was I lived right across the street,
and readily offered to be accompanied to my home to retrieve my identification. I was never worried, as I give Ceaser his due and do not run afoul of
the law other than an occasional ticket, but I decided to defend my rights and told him to get the scanner. This took three hours to arrive. The check
then took 45 minutes as they had to send out of state for my records as I was a recent transplant from another city. During the wait, a women rushed
up to us saying her car was being broken into AT THAT MOMENT, I swear they told her they were busy and would call for another unit to investigate for
her. I bet her car was long gone by then. Then the backup that arrived with the fingerprint scanner swore she knew me as a local troublemaker (I had
been in the neighborhood all of a month) and just knew I had a warrant. Needless to say, I was released without so much as an apology, and when I
asked for a note from the officer explaining to my job why I was hours late was told he had more important things to do and he sped off. I still give
myself credit for the self control I exercised that day, as I had plenty I wanted to say, but didn't fancy the use of tasers on my body.
Absolutely ridiculous and a terrible waste of my tax dollars. I will say that since I've gotten older, and my style of dress has changed, this
happens less often. I am however well aware that it can happen again at any time, and if the AZ law spreads I just may stay indoors permanently, as I
now work from home and only really need to go out to enjoy life, and the benefits of freedom, which if they ever truly existed for someone like me,
are rapidly vanishing.
To all you privileged and angry "real" Americans, enjoy it while you can. You should know that the state of AZ, and your federal government, don't
give a rats 455 about you or your rights, and when it becomes feasible for them to do the same to you, we'll see how you feel about the situation
