I'm willing to agree with that, but note how much can be hidden in the phrase "for the betterment of the people." Remember Mayor Bloomberg and his order that soft drinks can't be served in containers larger than 16 ounces? Or the food rules in schools, inspired by Mrs. Obama?
All laws and programmes start out for the betterment of the people. No law is initiated with the overt intent of restricting freedoms.
I believe the people writing these laws do not envision them ever being misused, partially because they are being written and administered by government employees who have only "the betterment of the people in mind," and partially because the goal of the environment (or the children, or whatever) is so vital that it has to be dealt with whatever the cost.
What needs to be looked at is not how the law is used, but how far it can be abused. Because, most certainly, someone who has written it, has already gone the next step.

I am in Newark too and I think the program is right. There is nothing to do with NWO bs. No nazis in Newark, your comments are misleading 100%. Sorry, but I have to stop your snowball before it gets bigger.
