"If you're out walking, we're going to stop you, ask why you're out walking, and check for your ID,"
That makes sense. I mean who walks anymore?

FTFA:...there is never not fear in U.S. towns today and so there is never not a pretext to introduce patrolling SWAT teams.

That last sentence gave me a headache.

Will my banjo work in case I forgot my papers?
 
2013-01-30 04:27:38 PM  
Well, now we can see why private citizens need military-class weapons.  I wonder if these guys are jack-booted.
 
2013-01-30 04:30:05 PM  
Oh, I see they're talking about Paragould. Or as we in the area like to call it, Little Mogadishu.
 
2013-01-30 04:33:41 PM  
Oh joy. We better not have the kind of showdowns between the local yokels and the National Guard/101st, like in the Sixties.

All we need is one yahoo Poh-leese Cheef who thinks they can take on the Obamarnment.
 
2013-01-30 04:35:38 PM  
I'll be sure to avoid north east Arkansas. It shouldn't be too tough.

Early: "Listen here. Readins don't never not done nothing for not NOBODY!"

Granny: "I think you mean 'not nonebody'."

Early: "Excuse me, not nonebody. Never not no one, didn't about no reason, not never, and by God they never not ain't gonna will!"

I hope the taxpayers are ok with spending a few mil defending the lawsuit.
 
2013-01-30 05:05:03 PM  
Updated, Jan. 30: According to local news reports, the police department canceled two subsequent town hall meetings to discuss the heavy handed policing plan. Following outrage from Paragould residents, the police cited "public safety concerns" to cancel the meetings.

Guys who think they need assault rifles to walk the streets are cowards? Who'd have thunk it.

Wow. The southern Rerepubs are showing their true colors down there.
 
2013-01-30 05:07:12 PM  
You know who else had armed patrols always checking peoples papers?
 
2013-01-30 05:07:53 PM  
You know what would make the town safer? More guns. Arm everybody and crime disappears like magic.
 
2013-01-30 05:08:08 PM  
Pfffft. Like people from Arkansas can read.
 
2013-01-30 05:08:51 PM  
Stovall also told residents he had not consulted an attorney before instituting the plan.

This is my shocked face :|

My sister moved to Arkansas for a job a while back. Her first week there she was out for a run and some old farmer looking guy stopped and asked if she was ok... Did your car break down? Do you need a ride? Is someone chasing you? Why are you running?

Just make sure your wife is with you and has her ID. They can do a DNA test and prove you are related.

JesusJuice: Sounds like this town needs to take a page from the Battle of Athens.


Or, they could use peaceful political processes to prevent the actions. Which they did.

They didn't prevent anything. Town Hall meetings were cancelled and the mayor hasn't backed down from his threat to harass random citizens. The people have been denied an outlet or their voice to be heard. Second amendment remedies are in order.

Or anyone who had glanced at a copy of the US Constitution

I would hope that there aren't any Farkers out there that actually think a vague "fear" of crime alone justifies the implementation of martial law.

I'll come back later to see how horribly wrong I'm proven to be.
