    I’m starting to feel like all the police in the country got together to watch “The Chase” with Charlie Sheen, and didn’t realize that the cop played by Henry Rollins was being portrayed as a lunatic and not a role-model.

    I’m pretty sure I’ve seen that on a poster in Manhattan. I’ve definitely seen handgun-toting troops in military uniforms in the train stations there. Combine that with the “ring of steel” and subway bag searches, and I’d say that NYC is on the cutting edge of the US police state.

    Things are pretty bad in Manhattan. There are mass presentations downtown fairly regularly. They search people getting onto buses. They are expanding the usage of license plate, biochemical, and radiation scanners to midtown.

    I have not run across the bumper sticker above but i’m in no way surprised.
