Initially, formulated for Covid virus protocol offenders, but good for other minor crimes.
Many actions have been taken to stop the spread of the Trump Virus. Most importantly is quarantine and social distancing. Unfortunately, police have been told not to minimize arresting people and prisons have been releasing prisoners to stop spread and to stop litigation by inmates.
A simple, effective punishment should be used for violation of public policy to protect public safety. The key is turning off the electricity to individuals and organizations that violate public policies.
Individual homes and apartments: Remove the electric meter for 30 days. If the individual finds alternative source for his domicile then the electric panel with circuit breakers will be removed. There will be a cost for re-connecting the electricity. If the circuit panel is removed, the replacement cost is borne by the individual. This includes persons or politicians advocating counter-productive or non-compliance of safety measures, e.g., virus masks.
The above is true for businesses and malls.
The above is true for towns, cities and suburbs: Wholesale electricity shut-offs for communities flaunty public safety measures, e.g., safe-breathing (social distancing). Examples, theme parks, water parks, etc.
In all cases,
Violators will be escorted to a magistrate to review evidence including body cams for review by a third party. Intermediate handling can use school buses if large arrests.
An electrician and a security team will remove the electric meter (or circuit breaker panel).
Disconnect sign or signs will be pasted around the home or organizations like abandoned car windshield stickers or "No Trespassing" signs. The "No Electricity" sticker will have start date and ending date.
Disconnections will be quality controlled each night to see if electricity has been re-introduced to the offender. Neighbors who provide extension cords will have their electrical service removed: From source (pole) to circuit panel with no redemption of removed parts. Offenders will have to pay energy company and electricians for new service.
The security will consist of two or more members of the state National Guard.
As local news chronicles crime so should it have a segment on daily Electricity Denial with reasons why so as to alert the public to more responsible behavior.
Among the benefit is lowering the cost of enforcing laws. No jailing. No prosecution.
ominous letter was sent by the National School Boards
Association to the U.S. Attorney General requesting deployment of the national
guard and military at school board meetings to arrest and prosecute disruptive
attendees under the Patriot Act as terrorists. Excuse me. This is a slippery
slope that should be avoided.
Himmler is applauding in his grave.
Brainbees and De-Electrification will reduce the threat to school board
As one does not have a right to irresponsibly yell 'fire' in a crowded theatre nor does one have a right to endanger others with a deadly disease.
|Timism has developed a collection of brainbees labeled
Brainbees. For citizens wishing to speak at public meetings, they submit
their issue in advance to be prioritized by the other submitters. At
public meeting (council, board, police, school, univesities, etc.),
in order of prioritization, speakers are given 5 minutes to present their
issue. Anyone violating the democratizing of civility in public meetings
will have their electricity--a symbol of civilization--turned off.
To access Civility Brainbees for public meetings and many other brainbees for efficient, economic policy-making, the governing body must pass Electicity Denial as a punitive tool for offenders of laws, regulations and ordinances. (Interesting historical note: Civil and civility derive from "city" without which one cannot have the former with a correlation of city life with civility. Civility brainbees can potentiate the following: When politicians make good policies, the polity in the polis will be polite without police.
