A Visual Reminder Of The Essence Of All Government

Policeman in Seattle gets violent with a woman and her friend for jaywalking: that is, walking across the street without the help of the little green man sign.

Look at all those people standing around watching. If that policeman didn't have the full force of government behind him, one of those guys standing around would have just summarily dispatched him - I was chomping at the bit just watching that, any man with a decent right fist could have done him serious kidney damage several times over given the total mess he made of that situation. That cop was nothing more than a human robot doing what he was told in spite of the fact he presumably has a brain in his head. He deserved a right good kicking, and so do the government morons everywhere who institute jaywalking laws.
