As the officer handcuffed the compliant motorist, the officer explained, "I don’t like someone with a gun," while insisting, "You’re not under arrest."
The second statement is an unalloyed lie: Whenever a police officer restrains someone, that person is under arrest. The first statement is a lie by omission: If Pierson had been a police officer, Bassett would not have complained about him carrying a gun. The category of "someone" thus applies only to Mundanes, whose very existence is seen as a threat to the unimaginably precious personages who wear state-issued costumes.Read more »

"The Full Story Of How A Boston Journalist Got Arrested On Some Bullshit At The Anniversary Of Occupy Wall Street" - I wasn't supposed to be sitting in a bar, my right elbow bent like a bastard, on the night of September 17, 2012.
