An enhanced (and I use the word very lightly) police presence may become necessary during times of heightened security, but an abusive police presence which usurps unlawful dictatorial power (and that what we have in this case) always uses the "personal sacrifice of freedom for the greater good" argument to rationalize the proliferation of fascism. This cop is a bully, pure and simple, acting against the law and we're institutionalizing this behavior in the name of "national security" or "fighting terrorism" or "the struggle against mopery with intent to creep" or whatever the euphemism du jour might happen to be.

I hope she takes them to the cleaners good and proper.
