Living in an Imperial World: Teach Your Children Well Redux

Hat-tip to The Smallest Majority for finding the appalling example above of childhood conditioning towards police power and citizen submission.

After reading the product description, I'm tempted to order the lousy thing just to get the "limited edition comic book FREE with every order":

Product Description
Pull over! The traffic police have blocked the road to all vehicles. Wearing realistic uniforms and printed emergency vests, they have set up a roadblock with 4 warning lights and 2 pylons. They are also equipped with a map, stop sign, and pistols.

Read Existing Thing's take on the topic, and a logical extrapolation from such propaganda:

I've even got an idea for a whole new line of toys, starting with "Overwatch Scouts - complete with scale-replica spotting scope, camo netting, and .338 Lapua long-range sporting rifle!"

Tempus fugit.

I haven't been here in a long time, but I just had to point something out. I went through a police road block last night (on Independence Day, of all days! How dare they?)

I was glad they were there. It would have been hard to get my ambulance all the way to the scene to pick up the young woman who'd been riding with a drunk driver and collided head-on with a Jeep. Turning around and getting back out would have been even worse.

I know what kind of roadblock you're thinking of, and I detest them, too, but the police were blocking the roads for legitimate reasons for a LONG time before they were told they could just set up some sawhorses and demand papieren.
