I've mentioned in previous posts of my desire tp move to New York City, because obviously they have the whole crime thing under control there that they have more time to spy on antiwar activists and such. Apparently, all crime has been so removed form the city that police officers have time to now arrest 13-year old girls for writing on their school desks. Boy have things gotten stricter since I was in school.
Now I used to draw on desks frequently, mostly when I didn't have a piece of paper handy, and I don't believe I was ever called on it, even when I was drawing elaborate landscapes in my psychotropic state. So I figured whatever 13 yr-old Chelsea Fraser wrote on her desk must have been absolutely horrible. Did she write an expletive? Did she criticize a teacher? The government? Threaten her classmates?
No. What she wrote that was horrible enough to have dragged from school in front of her classmates in handcuffs was just one word.
Okay. That's it. The one word. Okay.
So I know I am safe moving to New York because all the major crimes in that city have been solved and all the criminals locked safely away, so that the police now have the time to arrest a teenager for writing one word (and a positive word at that) on her desk. So much for freedom of expression.
