Pasadena cops: That's our job and you can't do it. Even if we won't.

A citizen is ticketed for directing traffic, clearing up a mile long road jam in Pasadena, California. "Oh hell no!" explains the chief of police.

"South Pasadena Police Chief Joe Payne said he did not have the man power needed to staff officers at Fair Oaks and Huntington Thursday and that is safer to allow traffic to back up." 

Safer for who? We live in frustrating times. To paraphrase Claire Wolfe: "It's too late to work within the system, but it's still too early to start shooting the bastards." Just barely though.
