Fighting Fair [61/365]

See momma, I can throw as well as I can lie er.. argue
In the Bible, it is foretold that towards the end of days, you'll have sons fighting against fathers, daughters against their mothers. Absolute anarchy.

If the ruckus between the advocates of law and the police is anything to go by, this could it. But then many saw this coming. Advocates have been the unsavory butts of a million jokes. By virtue of their profession, they are stripped of the constitutional right to protest.

While the losses keep piling up, it is interesting to know how we got the rat and the mongoose at each others throat. Apparently, a cop did his job (for once) and showed the nerve to catch an advocate who violated a certain traffic law. While the cop has been accused of assaulting the violator what is interesting is how the city's lawyers decided to react. Instead of owning up to a clear case of violation, they've taken the moral high horse. What followed was a blockage that lasted 7 hours on a busy weekday across some of the busiest thoroughfares. (More dope on the chaos here)
The rest, as they say, is history.

Add to this heady concoction a bunch of kitschy journalists out for their daily scoop and you end up with a city where chaos rules.
Where is Robocop when you need him?
