I could pretend to know the law like the parks manager in Coquille, Oregon. I could be the one to advise the cops of the law. I would be amazed that the cop listens to me, but if it works that way, I will want to maintain that kind of power over the cops. This will certainly leave people who is really in charge of the city police. Clearly, the police here are not their own entity. They gather a lot of influence from the the other corporate agencies as well. How convenient is it to launch offensives against the public on your own whim. The parks manager must surely enjoy having his own little personal army to do his bidding.
What really sealed my suspicion about the park manager controlling the police interpretation of the law was not his trying to cover his own ads in my magistrate trial for having my car hood up. No. The light really shined when he attempted to erase a video I made that had a few seconds of his business card. He is desperate to avoid controversy in his hometown because everybody adores him. Nobody wants to see him in any dimmer light than the ones that must have been shining on him for a long time now. That light can reflect his bright orange work shirt to a dazzling blaze.
Just listen to him at the city council meetings about the great work he is doing securing grants and rebuilding the entire town single-handedly, and making valiant attempts at covering the parts that are getting moldy from disuse. But nobody really knows what happens in the city council meetings, because the newspaper stopped showing up. There isn’t any media coverage of the city council anymore. They are ignored and this allows them to create their own narratives, which, of course, will involve a lot of back patting.
