More Nanny State B***$#!^

Drivers aren’t the only ones who could be fined for texting or talking.Now, there’s a proposal to keep pedestrians safe that could set off a national trend.
Crossing busy Broad Street in downtown Stamford can be a challenge, even if you’re not staring down at text messages on your cell phone.
Texting or even talking on an electronic device may soon be illegal in Stamford CT if a proposal to outlaw ‘distracted walking’ is approved.
Besides the First Amendment problem obvious in about two seconds to anyone who passed grade school with at least a B average, this is just government busybody bullshit.

"Distracted walking"???

What next?

Arresting people for daydreaming?
What if you're eating a sandwich?
Talking to a friend standing next to you?

What about this?

If violence is speech, and speech is violence, the assholes who would propose such a law , let alone vote it into being should be dragged out of city hall by the hair, set on fire on the steps of the building, and their ashes thrown in the face of any media who'd condemn the act.

Then go after their families.

And I'm not speaking metaphorically.

It's clearly gotten to the point that it's the only thing they'll understand.

Jihad, M*****f*****s.

To be completely accurate, the guy standing in the picture should be pointing a Tokarev a the back of the kneeling guy's head, not a finger. But I'm sure the thought is there.

Are they willing to employ deadly force against someone texting while walking. That is the question. Whenever you pass a law enforceable by armed police the potential always exists that deadly force will be employed. Those favoring these types of laws say such a thing will never happen, until it does. Eric Garner died for selling single cigarettes.
