Only on Long Island….
“Long Island woman arrested for giving teen COVID vaccine inside her home without permission”
The people in downstate New York, and especially in New York City and on Long Island, have created an intricate prison complex for themselves. This prison gulag system extends into all of the other blue, Democrat-voting states as well. It is an imaginary prison system without bars that is built with a lot of tax dollars, especially with property and sales taxes. Quite often the income is taxed in three jurisdictions.
The dynamic between “inmate” and prison management is best illustrated by their conspicuous and sprawling network of red light cameras. The residents will tell you that it’s a good idea, as it shows government is looking out for their safety and that no exceptions can be allowed.
Gun ownership rights are curtailed in these jurisdictions and strongly discouraged by their prison masters. The people in these states have grown afraid of firearms anyway, and are more than anxious to rid all lawful private citizens of the right to own a gun to defend themselves. But don’t tell them that their crime rates are out of control when compared to the gun owning states.
The people up there love their prison. They worked hard and labored diligently with their governments to create a set of overbearing and complex network of laws, bureaucratic infrastructure, and an overbearing police state monitoring system. Their local governments have created a lucrative snitch program, so residents can get rewarded handsomely for turning in their fellow inmates. Your neighbor is always eager to give you a shiv in the chow line.
These New Yorkers are proud of the prison they’ve created for themselves, and they’re so anxious to show it off to the rest of the country. The friends and family and people I know who still live up there could never think of leaving, even though they complain about it all the time. They’ve developed a codependent relationship with their prison guards and warden, and often spend tens of thousands of dollars a year to maintain their prison cell just to rent it back to their local tax jurisdiction.
I guess you can say these residents have become institutionalized. Life for them on the outside is now impossible, but don’t try to wake them from their slumber; they get easily offended.
