QOTD: Welcome to the police state

“I guess our country had a good run, but welcome to the police state. When an apparently law-abiding citizen and veteran can be gunned down in his own home for owning legal property and being unfortunately related to a family of allegedly law-breaking pikers, this “America” experiment of ours is well and truly over.” —Linoge

    Imagine it as Monty Python’s Spanish Inquisition sketch, with the SWAT team in place of the Inquisitors:

    Woman: Edward, what are you doing? Is that a marijuana cigarette you’re smoking?

    Man: Ah, honey, it’s just a joint. What are you going to do, call the SWAT team on me?

    *Enter SWAT team, who shoot Edward 47 times*

    SWAT Team Leader: No one expects the SWAT team when it’s just a joint! Or when you’re jaywalking! Or when you drink raw milk! Or when you use incandescent light bulbs instead of compact fluorscent lighting!

    Woman: You killed Edward! He wasn’t violent!

    SWAT Team Leader: He might have had a gun.

    Woman: He’s never been violent a day in his life! He doesn’t even have a police record!

    SWAT Team Leader: Can’t be too careful these days.

    Woman: How dare you! You had no right!

    SWAT Team Leader: Calm down, lady. If you get violent we’ll have to shoot you, too.

    *enter Fluffie, a pet Pomeranian. Wagging his tail, Fluffie runs toward SWAT Team Leader, who shoots Fluffie*

    Woman: You killed Fluffie! You bastards!

    SWAT TEAM Leader: He was lunging at me.

    *Woman jumps up to slap SWAT Team Leader, at which point the SWAT team opens fire, shooting her 47 times.*

    News Reporter: Today we had a stand-off in which SWAT was called to respond. Pima County Sheriff Clarence Dupnik commended his officers for their brave actions against violent felons.

    Sorry. Ran out of humor there at the end.

    While I appreciate the attention, I have to admit – I wish this was one quote of the day I had not had to write.
