Let's talk about Seattle

I read this in The Independent. (UK).

It does seem like their finest are doing their finest to spread the disease.

If he was arrested for breaking no laws, he's going to win a big settlement from the city. If journalists are exempt from this law except under narrow circumstances, and he has a press pass, it will be a pretty straightforward case. Not that you posted this to hear about how aggressive policing increases my taxes. (But, on the note of aggressive policing, you should be aware Seattle Police are operating under a consent decree for beating minorities up too much.)

He makes a pretty obvious point about jails and prisons being ideal places for disease to spread. Too bad in a pandemic we're arresting people for exercising their constitutional rights. One of many reasons America is doing so poorly with covid-19.

^^^ I once went on the Small World ride at Disney World in Orlando, absolutely stoned out of my gourd.
After a couple of minutes, I realized how creepy and sinister that ride is. Maybe it was pot paranoia, but I was glad to get out of there.
