Protection when you least expect it

By Frank Moraes

This sign that has been posted all over New York City reads, "NYPD Drones: Protection When You Least Expect It."

It is an excellent example of urban art which makes a difference. And thus it has to be stopped!

The NYPD held a weeks-long manhunt for the artist. They finally arrested Essam Attia and charged him with 56 trumped-up charges, including a weapons charge for an unloaded .22 rifle he kept under his bed.

Explain to me again how we don't live in a police state.

  • Good stuff. Shoddy reaction. Let's hope the D.A. doesn't feel the need to win one for the coppers. There's little argument that what Essam did harmed society, and there's some evidence that what he did has valuable. Let him get some community service, and maybe a better representative among the galleries.
