Standing with the cops
While I was watching all the cops this morning, a man walked into the plaza and dipped his cup with a broken handle into the fountain water for a drink. He stood and listen to the national anthem being played, then he walked over and joined some of the cops standing near the stage. The cops took it good naturedly and chatted with him. After about 10 minutes or so, he went on his way. It was pretty amusing. In my time here, I’ve noticed that the cops have a lot of patience. I’ve seen them put up with kids throwing rocks at them and people giving them verbal abuse. It seems like it takes quite a bit to get arrested or hauled off to jail.
