So get this folks: Bank robberies are so common in New York City these days, that the NYPD wants the City Council to make it illegal for banks to go without bulletproof barriers! Read it here.
Hey, It’s Not His Fault… It’s The Bank’s Fault!
Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s Police Commissioner, Raymond Walter Kelly, is concerned that there are so many bank robberies that the police are being distracted from other work. “We don’t want to tell anyone how to run their businesses,” the kind and considerate Mr. Kelly said, “until it impacts our business.”
Frankly, I see the NYPD’s point on this one. With the economy in a free fall, and the next Great Depression right around the corner, well, banks just present too tempting a target. And all those bank robberies certainly do drain police resources that could be well spent elsewhere. Like in… spying on the People and locking them up if the leave Free Speech Zones during political conventions. Or ticketing them if there is graffiti on their building. And while we are at it, let us also ease the burden on the clogged up court system by doing away with trials when a Police Officers says the defendant is guilty. Why would a police officer lie? What a waste of resources those pesky trials are! And think of all the time and money we could save by simply eliminating those slick trial lawyers. If a person is really innocent, they won’t need a lawyer to help them. Will they?
And to really cut down the number of bank robberies let’s go all out. Let the City Council order the arrest of all those stubborn, inconsiderate folks who refuse to do their banking over the internet. Furthermore, exactly what are you doing with all that cash, anyway? Where did you get it? Would you mind coming down to headquarters? And bring your papers, please. Lawyer? No, no, my friend. You don’t need a lawyer…
LISTEN: When the state enacts laws to make things easier for the police, that is the very definition of a police State. Wake up, folks!
