'I know that one,' said Vimes.  Who watches the watchmen?  Me, Mr Pessimal.'
'Ah, but who watches you, your grace?' said the inspector, with a brief smile.
'I do that too.  All the time,' said Vimes.

Damn patronizing cops.

"Governor Brown has no authority to take our civil liberties. We aren't going to wear masks," the trooper allegedly said, according to a written statement from Boss provided to the newsroom.

Yeah, man!  Only the f*cking cops have that right.

Huh, I didn't know the government enforcing the wearing of garments was a violation of civil liberties.

Go naked, y'all

There was a ruling in federal court to that affect/effect late last year. Basically, it is sexist to allow men to go topless and not women. So, all the "decency" laws got revoked.

In my view the governors ordering mask can go Fark themselves, but if a business ask you to where a mask on their premises you don't give them any crap.  You are on their property so you play by their rules or GTFO.

Topless.. But they still have to wear pants.

And they are telling both sexes to wear masks

So don't serve them. Tell them to leave.

For anyone looking for a psychobabbly explanation for why we see so much resistance to masks, reactance is the term you're looking for. It's not an excuse, but it makes sense. It's applicable to any number of behaviors when freedoms are endangered (real or perceived).

And I am SURE that the other cops are empowered to take their brothers-in-arms to task for their flagrant defiance of law and order?

NO?  REALLY?

But I was promised that the boys-in-blue were held to even greater standards, and that was why it was fair for them to pass judgement and enforce the law on everyone else!

Seems that's insubordination and in most places, a termination offense.

I know here in Nashville all you have to say is the mask bothers you or interferes With you in some medical way and the order specifically says you can't ask for proof Of any condition.  So yeah, they probably have that as well in Oregon.  That would have been easy for the officers to use.

Federal and State Health Departments have broad powers to prevent the spread of infectious diseases. Look up forced quarantine/confinement/commitment laws in regards to TB, smallpox, and polio that have been laws for decades if not a century.

Looks at WegianWarrior suspiciously. Takes out official Constabulary Notebook, writes WEGIANWARRIOR, underlines twice, and makes note "Likely troublemaker, have Capt. Carrot ask a few questions."

Alas, that only works when a good man is in charge.

Although to mix genres and borrow a quote from Dr. Who... "Good men don't need rules. Today is not the day to find out why I have so many."

If these cops have such severe breathing problems, why aren't they retired?
Oh wait, they're just douchebags.
Nevermind.

I wonder how long it's going to take for the police to learn that the nation is carpeted in cameras, that there are many venues to publish what they see, and that virtually nothing one does goes unobserved and unrecorded these days? I thought it would have happened long before this, but here we are. Again and again.

And there is some really good fanfiction too - check out the works of AA Pessimal

Law enforcement have become the new rulers of the lower classes.  Do what they say or they will punish and/or kill you.  Their own conduct is above reproach or review.  And the real ruling class in America simply doesn't care enough to fix it.

Maybe stop electing millionaires to public office?  I'm too old to fix anything other than an early Friday afternoon cocktail.

Things I've enjoyed learning about in Pratchett's books:
- Human nature
- Governing
- Passion (about music/acting/arts)
- Human nature
- Politics
- Child psychology
- International politics and War
- Culture shifts (or lack thereof) and traditions
- Human nature
- How to speak orangutan
-  Animal psychology
- Mrs. Palm is an actual person
- Some people are just broken
- Some people have the patience of mountains
- And more...
And did I mention Human Nature?

That's a tough one b/c whose going to tell a cop that they're not getting served unless they're masked?  I certainly wouldn't.  I've had enough negative experiences with cops that were not started by me, I certainly don't need to start one up.

If you were a security guard at a private company, and the CEO announced a new mandatory safety policy, and you walked into the building actively violating the safety policy, and then someone said "hey, dude - you have to follow the safety policy", and you said "Fark the CEO and her safety policy" and went about your day, you'd be fired.

Why do these farkwits still have jobs today?
