M13 On Cops

I agree with the general thrust of M13's argument, but I'd add a couple of things. By and large the cops in southern Taiwan seem to me to be reactive rather than pro-active in enforcing laws. In some ways this may be good because it seems to result in the cops being less likely to abuse the law for predatory purposes. The other thing is that I sometimes wonder whether there is a cultural difference on this point between cops in northern Taiwan and cops in southern Taiwan. I'm not sure.
