Can't even find it inside themselves to give people enough space to get on the e way. You really think if they had a hand in government they would all the sudden change? Fuckin joke get over it
I did my time on a city council. Shit takes a long time to learn how to do right and lawfully. We did everything in our power to do right by there municipality, but still to this day i have to have safety measures in place because there's that one guy that didn't like how we did things. Blames us for his recklessness, and even threatened justice on us, whether in a court of law or not. I have taught my wife and children the value of situational awareness... just hoping they don't need to use the things i taught them about self defense.
^ this x eleventy big ones.
A simple example is Jury Duty. The operative word is “Duty”. The citizen shirks it and nobody thinks twice. This is what they are teaching their children. The “Go ME and fuck YOU” mentality coupled with “Someone else will do it” is big city think that fucks us all.
