What is wrong with America?
« on: September 04, 2009, 09:50:07 pm »
Well I went out to take some pictures of chelsea today, I was board, it was a nice night and I wanted to get some fresh air. So I went around and took a bunch.

I got some of my house, my street, the MWRA, the T, the tobin birgde, my doctors office, the grocery stoor, and I tried to take a picture of my old school...

Someone called the cops and I was stoped about two blocks away, apperently they thought I was taking pictures of kids... after I calmy explained what really happend and showed the police my pictures, and appologized for causing a mistunderstanding... (turns out they know my dad) they sent me happily on my way...

However, I'm enraged, and nauseous. I'm not upset about being stopped, or even the fact that I was accused of something so absurd. The reason I am upset is that I live in a world where you can't take a picture of your old school without causing a panic. Society is beset by perverts and parents are afraid. Just today I heard of some scum bag who exposed himself to some young girls in Arlington. This is the kind of world we live in... and I honestly don't know if anything can be done about it. But I feel like somehow, someway things need to change because this just isn't right.

I'll post my pictures later on, I had a "welcome to Chelsea" thread planned, but I'm not really up to posting it right now... this whole thing made me feel sick.

True but if we counted on the unexpected then it would cease to be unexpected.

I'm only enraged because we live in a world in which the innocent are saved from prosecution by having connections.

This is outrageous. The innocent should never be saved.

Plus, you should not spell the word store "S-T-O-O-R". If you weren't shot for that, I don't know what to tell you about the state of America. Fascism Lite just isn't good enough for me.

Yeah, on an update, my cousin told my father to tell me he was sorry for the mix up. He didn't recognize me because its been so long since we've seen each other last.

And if you hadn't been somebody's cousin and somebody else's son, you'd be in prison now. Think about it.

In Massachusetts? Please! Our courts are so liberal they regularly let rapists go. I think any judge would laugh at a trial based on a 20 year old taking a picture of his elementary school.
