And bureaucracy wins again…

Ever hear of a law that allows police to throw you out of your home because they decided you were a problem for the neighborhood?  Then you’re not a poor black person living in New York City, because if you were, you’d know about Nuisance Abatement laws.  For the NYPD to come after you, you don’t have to be convicted of a crime.  Hell, you don’t even have to be charged with a crime.  All they need is a reason (which they can invent on the spot) to say you’re not good for the community.  The funny thing is, the “community” that you may not be “good enough” for is usually a crime-ridden, crack cocaine-filled area.  And since the police can’t do anything else to fix that, they’re responding to calls for action by doing what they do best: picking on the helpless (i.e., people who usually don’t shoot back).

It’s just one more example of the America that people like Donald Trump want to make great again — the America of the ’50s.
