“I caught my neighbor selling illegal haircuts, so…

…I did what any good person would do. I kept my mouth shut.”

…even though I already knew that de Blasio’s “rat on your neighbor” policy was the epitome of stupidity, being in the actual situation made the awfulness of it more visceral.

There I am, smoking my cigarette, watching this makeshift hairdresser’s busy scissors and I realized I had been deputized by my mayor to mess up his whole deal. It’s not an authority I want, and even just knowing I have it makes me very uncomfortable. The good news is that apparently the hotline Hizzoner set up has mostly been used to mock the policy, not to tattle on fellow citizens, but it’s still disturbing and dystopian.

Good read. Hat tip to Alert Reader SS.

    I suspect a majority of NY police officers are going to be reluctant to enforce de Blasio’s edict, seeing as how he pretty much lifted it from Adolph Hitler’s playbook. So I won’t be surprised to learn that Herr de Blasio has formed his own version of the Gestapo.

    Nice hair, Citizen Your papers, please?
    My upstairs roomie appears to cut his own hair judging by the occipital skin damage; can I turn him in for fun and profit?

    The US/Canadian border is closed to all but essential shipments, so they can do whatever they like.

To the stake with the heretic!
