      Funny story: yesterday, I went out to breakfast with some friends to a little place that has seating for about 20-25. About 10 minutes in, a cop walks in, outfitted with pistol, Taser, pepper spray, a Batman belt full of restraints, some sort of earphone plugged.into his head, and body armor. He walked to a table in the corner and sat watching the whole room.

      Interestingly enough, as he walked in, and for the rest of of the time we were there, the conversation in the room, which had been lively, became muted and people seemed a bit nervous. It may be that people are beginning to see these guys differently.

    2. The private delivery service guys probably still do.

    3. The difference, FoE, is that this guy actually faces consequences for his actions.
