Amerikan Curfews As 'Last Resort'

update on: Your Papers Please...
Law and order: Curfew America independent.co.uk
War zone security has arrived in the US as cities are shut down at night by police struggling to control a deadly wave of gun crime. David Usborne reports from Hartford, Connecticut
The police state has not arrived quite yet but it may feel like it to the residents of some American cities, where a handful of embattled mayors and police chiefs are imposing strict and sometimes sweeping curfews as a last resort to quell new waves of gun violence this summer.
Nor are there any apologies from the authorities in Helena-West Helena on the banks of the Mississippi in Arkansas, small pockets of which are under a 24-hour curfew that all ages must respect. Police are enforcing it, moreover, with night-vision goggles and M16 military rifles.
re: Law and 'new' order
An interesting and creative use of indoctrinating language by a major UK news source reporting on the 'new trend' in American police methods. "Curfew America" is the clever name they have chosen. "War zone security", "cities shut down at night", "police struggling", "police state has not arrived QUITE YET", a "last resort" we are told, and 'no apologies', "night-vision goggles and M16 military rifles", all carefully chosen terms to convey a subtle message. The message? The coming tranformation into a full police state is serious business and it's for your own good...
The bureau of propaganda is alive and well in the UK too.
Rev. 3:11 Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown.
