So I just got done with my first week of school. I live right down the street from the college. It's a quiet neighborhood usually, but when school starts there is a lot of traffic and a lot of kids....and with a lot of kids comes cops. Lot's of them.
It's a short walk to the campus from home, I usually leave early and hang out outside for a bit. Everyday this week before and after class I must have seen at least 10 cops within as many minutes.
Cops in cruisers pulling people over, cops in cruisers giving mass parking tickets, cops on fancy new motorcycles hiding behind parked cars with radar guns, cops on motorcycles cruising through the big parking lots to give out tickets.
Why are there so many cops crowded around an area populated by nothing other than students? It's not like there is some big pickpocket ring operating in the area. If you go the Airport district, where ACTUAL crime takes place everyday, you'll hardly see any police. People get shot to death almost every week in airport and there are armed robberies there about once every 1-2 months. The airport district is overrun with drugs and gangs. But the police for some reason feel a need to have some overpowering presence at a place of learning.
It just proves my point that the police are nothing more than opportunistic predators, preying on the public.
I would have took a bunch of pictures but I was more worried about getting to class, you'll just have to take my word for it.
