First principles: portland’s mayor

Mayor Sam Adams said late Sunday afternoon that “a series of increased drug overdoses… an arsonist that used the camp as camouflage and almost a 20% increase in crime surrounding the encampment” prompted the move. cnn

 

A quick review of the principles presented by the mayor.

  1. Citizens must be removed from any area that experiences a series of increased drug overdoses. (Concerts?  Frat parties?  Professional sports teams?)
  2. Citizens must be removed from any area which arsonists use as camoflage (pretty much anywhere, it’s open season!  “Hey, I think I saw an arsonist use that private residence as camoflage!”)
  3. Citizens must be removed from any area which experiences a 20% increase in crime (conventions, superbowl, etc)
The state knows what is best for you, and with whom you should freely associate.  {spit}  
Full disclosure:  I love, love, love Portland.
