We should pass a law to prevent this from happening!
THE PROBLEM IS THAT THE PEOPLE SUPPOSED TO BE ENFORCING THOSE SAME LAWS ARE CONDUCTING THEMSELVES LIKE THE HARDENED CRIMINALS WHO TRIGGERED THE ORIGINAL ENACTMENT OF THESE LAWS TO PREVENT PEOPLE LIKE THEM FROM DOING EXACTLY WHAT THEY ARE DOING.
I apologize for triggering any traffic to communist apologist John Oliver. Obviously you can tell his point is to rationalize all of this, make it seem like an amusing anecdote. If anything he is part of the massage media to turn stories like this from justifications for armed revolution into causes that should be addressed at council meetings like a minor infraction.
They recently passed similar laws here in Victoria. I love how all these countries are supposed to have separate governments and apparently all the locals do is get faxes from the U.N. or the U.S. listing the legislation they should pass point-by-point and they comply to the letter without the voters ever even being involved in any way. That's the "demockrassy" they are always crowing about.
