[O]nce again we see this authoritarian mentality encroaching on daily life in America wherein we see police everywhere, in various guises, looking over our shoulders, asserting their authority, making themselves known in small ways and large.

We always had aggressive cops in this country and they’ve always been willing to stretch the meaning of the bill of rights. But this sense of them being everywhere, seen and unseen, is new. And it’s chilling.
