It’s all falling apart. The center cannot hold. Sheer ass holes are loosed upon the world.
When I was a kid, the cop from the next block over walked his two dogs on our block to let them crap on our yards instead of his.
One of his dogs bit me one day while I was riding my bike in the street. THe bite was hard and on my thigh.
On another occasion, his two dogs chased my stepmother into the house and I had to kick them away from the front door. Of course, no apology was given.
On another occasion, one of my dad’s friends came over and those two dogs started chasing him. At that point, the friend kicked them away and the cop bitched about it.
Memories like those shaped my opinions about cops early on.
And the sheer assholes have badges, guns and general immunity.
