Another day, another reason for y'all to eff tha police.
Notorious prankster Roman Atwood is back in action, this time egging cops on by drinking non-alcoholic drinks in brown paper bags right in front of their faces. More than anything, this is a great display in demonstrating the realities of modern day law-enforcement--that perhaps its more about #jukingthestats than it is actual protecting people from real harm.
Power trips are perhaps an inevitable result of this sort of job, but its strangely heartbreaking to see that police appear to get crazily strung up on this sort of thing. This all may have something to do with the fact that I just spent four years going to a college that basically invited city police to break up unremarkable house parties while people were getting murdered on the other side of DC, but the point remains. The institution as a whole is probably more at fault than any particular individual or small group of people, but a reality that's most definitely disturbing. Of course, I'm just gonna sit here and blog rather than actually be proactive about any of this, so there's that.
In conclusion, 'Merica.
