This video is interesting to me because of the reaction it elicited (see comments posted). The girls in the car were certainly “uncooperative” and even belligerent. But they only became so after an armed government worker pestered them. Prior to this, they were parked and passed out. Not bothering anyone. It is possible that they were well-aware they shouldn’t be driving and decided to snooze off whatever they’d been smoking or drinking.
Which seems laudable.
In any event, from what I can tell, they weren’t driving when the armed government worker began to pester them. And they weren’t threatening anyone or even annoying anyone.
They were all asleep.
So, the question arises: Why are they the object of pesterers? Wouldn’t it have been better to leave them be, rather than create a “situation”?
And for those who worry that they would have driven stoned or drunk had the armed government workers not pestered them: Why couldn’t the armed government worker have waited for them to drive away and then – with cause – pestered them?
A major problem with “law enforcement” is that it creates problems where none existed. As someone else pointed out, fire departments don’t cruise around all day looking for fires – and hassling people over might-be fires. They wait until they are called to deal with an actual fire.
Maybe it would help if law enforcement did the same.
