Misdirection

Whenever I need to go to the pharmacy to buy allergy medication that actually works, I have to show ID and sign a form that has some threatening legalese in it. It’s just USC 18 §1001: in essence, it says that it’s illegal to knowingly lie.

Maybe we should send a copy of that to everybody who works with the various armed alphabet soup agencies that hire thugs who threaten or kill, innocent, unarmed citizens then cover up their actions.

Never mind… dumb idea. It won’t work. They don’t follow their own rules and won’t prosecute their own. That also means, there’s very little incentive for the citizenry to follow their rules either.
