|The Nightmare on Speen Street|
|This is the story of a 57 year old law-abiding man who went for his
morning walk as he has done for years and was assaulted by a
Framingham police officer who was doing his mind-numbingly boring
job and decided to play nanny. In the end, the 58 year old
found guilty of
Assault and Battery of a Public Employee
because he tried to protect his constitutional rights in not
The 57 year old law-abiding man belatedly realized that he had walked into a space-time displacement vortex on Speen Street and was dropped into Berlin around 1933.
This story shows how an underemployed police officer, Gregory Reardon becomes an employment generation and job opportunity machine that creates not so useful employment for other police officers, various assistant district attorneys, assorted judges, probation officers, lawyers, not to mention the immense courthouse protection racket and underemployed soccer mom feminine jurors.
The story shows how the legal system is so stacked against the defendant that it is both pathetic and pitiful.
One learns that in the entire criminal justice system, there may exist one person in every two thousand that can actually differentiate an ethernet plug from a USB plug.
At the end of the nightmare, those people who still possessed a shred of intelligence, discovered that after hundreds of hours of difficult tedious work, by dozens of hard working, highly paid and dedicated public officials, pretty much of nothing had been accomplished, but they were all a little closer to retirement.
And that, boys and girls, is how government works.
Those of us who actually appreciate freedom do have a recourse coming this November. We can vote to eliminate the Massachusetts income tax and create a long unemployment line for many of these less than useful jobs. Without the public trough to feed on, most of these people would probably be in retail, which IMHO (in my humble opinion) is perhaps more useful employment for them.
