Insanity. If you were waiting for the moment to "take your country back" and "defend liberty", you missed it. Long ago.
You need to wake up and realize the gravity of your predicament. You're suffering from boiling frog syndrome.edit on 21-7-2011 by Malcram because: (no reason given)

All of the above.
Just blows my mind that there are places with police enforceable curfews. What the hell?
Dozens of police departments nationwide are gearing up to use a tech company’s already controversial iris- and facial-scanning device that slides over an iPhone and helps identify a person or track criminal suspects. The so-called “biometric” technology, which seems to take a page from TV shows like “MI-5″ or “CSI,” could improve speed and accuracy in some routine police work in the field.
They were taken to a place called Crisis Intervention Center. Evidently its a holding facility for those under 18 and its run by non-profit that contracts with the city and state.

It was literally a nightmare and i woke up panicking. Things like this don't make my view of america any better.
USA is the new nazi state. It's just taking a while to come to light.
What a bunch of crap. You are using this one incident to justify a profound Bigotry which is in all ways the equivalent of being a Racist. Like I said, what a load. You may as well join the Nazi Party or the KKK if you're not already a member now.
Let me guess, you have never been here and all you know about us you got from other bigots on the Internet? Correct?edit on 7/21/2011 by Blaine91555 because: (no reason given)

When I was 16, I hated the curfew law. Now that I'm more mature, I realize that 95% of kids out past midnight aren't up to anything good. In the ideal world, sure it'd be great if there didn't have to be a curfew, but this is the real world. Any kids out past midnight, who aren't at a movie or other event like that, are doing stuff that they shouldn't be doing.
There are a lot of people who shouldn't be cops that are. You need to blame the individuals in this case, not the system.
The fact that they had a "paddy wagon" dispatched tells me the intention of everyone from the shift supervisor to each individual LEO is culpable in premeditated kidnapping and false imprisonment.
