Here in the USA, at least, we live in an era in which a kid's lemonade stand could get shut down by the cops for doing business without a license, where a kid can't take cupcakes to school to celebrate his/her birthday for fear that it might make the other kids fat, and where people in some areas can't even keep a handgun in their house for protection against home invaders. This is a time where law abiding citizens with no criminal record must get a license to purchase a handgun, but crackheads and heroin addicts can continue to pop out kids and collect a welfare check with no interference from the state. Police conduct drug raids on the wrong house and get a pass. Police kill unarmed citizens and get a pass. Police kill pets simply because they are there, even when they pose no threat to the officer, and get a pass. However, if a citizen shoots a police dog in self defense, now that person is guilty of assault on a police officer, and they go to prison for a very long time.
The double standards and injustice are reaching a point where citizens are starting to fight back, as in Ferguson, Missouri, where a cop killed an unarmed 17-year-old kid, who had his hands in the air to surrender, and the people are demanding accountability.
