The Police

BBC NEWS | World | Americas | Woman jailed for 'neglected' lawn
A 70-year-old US woman has been left bruised and bloody after an unexpected clash with police who came to arrest her because her lawn was dry and brown.
It seems these days that however crazy and fascist you imagine the police to be, they can always go one step further. It's hard to believe so I think the word "literally" is needed a lot: This woman was LITERALLY going to be arrested for not watering her lawn. Ridiculous enough, but then the officer hit her with his handcuffs and cut her nose. LITERALLY. The woman is 70 years old. LITERALLY 70 years old.
She was let go when police realised there were "other ways" of finding out her identity without taking her to jail, a police spokesman said.
I wonder if they tried, like, asking her name? Dunno that sounds a bit stupid, best just to take her to jail before "thinking" about it.
