At least as far back as Reagan, it was called “preventive detention.” During President Cheney’s time, we had “freedom zones.” And I don’t recall there being ANY significant resistance to any of it. When this all blows over (Oh, hey, did everyone read Monica Lewinsky’s great Internet joke about blow? Yeah, thank heavens the Internet distracts so many so much) you know what won’t be done? No one will organize a demand that the unnamed goons be named, indicted, removed by dishonorable discharge, and barred from ever holding any sort of security position for life.

The suburbanite discretely will join the buffoonish rustic by voting Trump. No one can tell you what to do once you’re in the voting booth.
