“In Republic City’s war on crime, the worst criminal offenders are pursued by the detectives of Republic City Police Force. Chief Beifong; who found something new to be bitter about and Detective Mako; who definitely does not cry in the shower. These are their stories.”
The nation’s opioid epidemic is changing the way law enforcement does its job, with police officers acting as drug counselors and medical workers and shifting from law-and-order tactics to approaches more akin to social work.
Departments accustomed to arresting drug abusers are spearheading programs to get them into treatment, convinced that their old strategies weren’t working. They’re administering medication that reverses overdoses, allowing users to turn in drugs in exchange for treatment, and partnering with hospitals to intervene before abuse turns fatal.
“A lot of the officers are resistant to what we call social work. They want to go out and fight crime, put people in jail,” said Capt. Ron Meyers of the police department in Chillicothe, Ohio, a 21-year veteran who is convinced that punitive tactics no longer work against drugs. “We need to make sure the officers understand this is what is going to stop the epidemic.”
Reader and Seb decide what show to watch on Netflix.
“Seb, I wanna watch something.” You whined, opening Netflix on your tv screen.
He plopped down next to you and grabbed the remote. “Let’s watch The Office.”
“Why don’t we binge Law and Order SVU?” You asked your boyfriend.
He shook his head. “Already seen it.”
You kissed him. “Please?”
“How about Jessica Jones?”
You kissed him again, hoping to get him to give in. This time he wouldn’t let you pull away. He put his hand your hair and deepened the kiss. When you needed air you pulled away and Seb whispered in your ear, “So we’re watching Jessica Jones, right?”
“Over my dead body.” You said crashing your lips against his again. Next thing you knew, he was tickling you. “Sebastian! Stop!” You laughed trying to push his large arms away from you.
You nodded and he stopped. “Hey, babe?”
You held the remote in front of his face. “Guess who has the remote?” You laughed as he tried to grab it, but you yanked it away. “Sorry Seb, maybe next time.” He glared at you. “I wuv you, Sebastian.”
“I love you too, Y/N,” He sighed kissing the top of your head.
Hate speech is this = 'Fuck gays! They are vermin that needs to be cleansed!' Free speech is this = 'Personally for me I don't approve of same-sex marriage' Notice the difference?
No they are both free speech. Let me show you why, from a legal standpoint brought to you by the ACLU of all people. Granted this is dealing more with protests, but it still gets the point across.
“Limitations on Speech The First Amendment does
not protect speech that is combined with the violation of established
laws such as trespassing, disobeying or interfering with a lawful order
by a police officer. Also unprotected are malicious statements about
public officials and obscene speech.
Although an inflammatory speaker cannot be punished for merely
arousing an audience, a speaker can be arrested for incitement if he/she
advocates imminent violence or specifically provokes people to commit
See you can say it all you want now you can be held responsible if someone goes out and a riot ensues or people get hurt and property damaged. However the mere act of saying things is protected so long as you follow these easy guidelines above.
I’m legal neutral I may not like what people say, but as long as they aren’t breaking any laws I won’t stop them from saying it, that’s what laws are for.
