It's a prelude of things to come, I'm afraid.
In New York City Wednesday, Jack Pawlowski took his two children to a local park with a toy gun that shoots harmless plastic pellets, only to wind up under arrest and lodged in jail after two self-declared arbiters of acceptable pastimes (aka: "informers", "squealers", snitches") ordered him and his children to leave the park and then called the police and sent them to his home, where he was dragged out in handcuffs with the media present to record the incident.
EXCLUSIVE: Man Arrested For Allegedly Shooting Realistic Toy Gun With Kids In Queens Park
In Bloomberg's New York, the guy's lucky that he didn't have a 2-liter bottle of soda pop in the house along with the kids' toy guns; He'd probably be getting the death penalty for that.
Watch the video in the news story. The smug arrogance of Leni Calas makes me want to punch her through my computer monitor. It's pretty clear that she doesn't think that anyone should even be allowed to have toy guns, much less real ones, and that, in her mind, only her values should count in the community. Sadly, people like Leni Calas are becoming more and more commonplace today and they're rising to positions of power in our society. Given time, she and her fellow Kapos will help create a social structure here in America that Josef Stalin of Fidel Castro would be jealous of--one where a police state locks people up for trivial offenses that are "crimes" only because they are politically incorrect and everyone turns their neighbors in for everything. Can George Orwell's "1984" really be all that far away?
Now If you want to drop Leni Calas or her fellow quisling Maria Smilios a line and let them know that you appreciate them stepping up and deciding for everyone what is appropriate and what is not, and for seeing to it that this dangerous criminal was arrested in front of his children for daring to take them out and have some safe, responsible fun with them and an evil toy gun, I offer you their contact information. Please don't harass or threaten them as that would not be nice and they'll likely just tattle on you anyway.
