This Could Be You

One thing I've noticed (anecdotally! Not science!) is that increasingly the powers that be are victimizing people who aren't supposed to be victimized. I'm of course not justifying the usual practices of extracting everything that can be extracted from poor people and minorities, but there's a bit of hubris involved in going after people who might actually have the means to defend themselves. Of course I wrote "might," as apparently it's perfectly legal to break into random homes as long as a bank tells you to do it, but the broader point is that the rules are changing. We can all be screwed now.
