Road Pirate Activity – No Victim – Business As Usual

When road pirate activity happens right in front of me I have to bear witness to create an objective record of the situation and to hopefully help mitigate the likelihood of any rights-violations. So tonight, when I saw through the window of an Indian eatery some road pirate activity, I ventured onto the sidewalk to document and ask questions.

It was pretty much a business-as-usual incident. The traveler was given a ransom note despite the fact that he had caused no victim. And unsurprisingly, the person who initiated the stop – Wood, #116 of the Manchester Police Outfit – was unable to identify any victim.

Unfortunately, this type of “legal” shake-down has happened thousands of times today within the political boundaries of the USSA. But that doesn’t make it just. Indeed, it is the exact opposite. Once one sees through the charade of protection at the barrel of a gun, real alternatives can be sought and implemented.
