The past is prologue, the future is yet defined, the emergence of a Fascist police state is now clearly rising and almost impossible to argue against.  From New York City's controversial "stop and frisk" program to this from the, Atlanta Journal Constitution:

"Code enforcement officer fired after entering woman's bedroom"

"He let himself in and actually came through the house and into my bedroom and yelled at me to wake me up to let me know that I needed to come back outside and sign the violation notice," Masters told WJBF-TV News Channel 6 station in Augusta.

"I woke up, I didn't have my glasses on or my contacts in and all I see is this big burly figure standing in my doorway," she said. "A big huge guy with a grey shirt, it scared the mess out of me."

But a larger question prompts us to ask, was he fired because of his actions or because he lied about them to his supervisors?

Why should we keep even one code enforcement officer to make sure our grass is the appropriate length, when we are laying off school teachers?
