GASP! How DARE anyone want to dance on Sundays!
Seriously though, lunatic laws are what you get when lunatics are in power.
Here in the UK, police just lie in wait for passing motorists to commit a driving violation and allow serious crime to go unchecked. Speeding offences
generate £60 a pop on the spot.
Last week in my town, a friend of mine witnessed two men suspiciously hovering around an ATM and then saw one hide something under his jumper and both
walked away to a white van. My friend ran in the shop, told them the ATM outside has just been interfered with, and to call the police. He then jumped
in his car and followed the van all over town.
When it had to stop at traffic lights one of the men got out and ran off, so my friend jumped out ran to the van, opened the driver door and took the
keys from the ignition, he held the driver there whilst calling the police. The police told him to release the man because they couldn't respond due
to a lack of manpower. So my friend confiscated all the driver's documents which were on the dashboard, and also confiscated his card-cloning
equipment which was stuffed under his jumper. Then he had to let the criminal go. Meanwhile, there were ten pairs of policemen hiding on the different
main roads in and out of town, lying in wait for passing speeding motorists and slapping them with £60 on the spot fines.
Can't go arresting real criminals for no gain when there are motorists to legally extort money from.
The police force should be renamed Revenue Generators.
