Shutting down neighborhoods, searching all vehicles, and arbitrarily deciding whether you have a "legitimate reason" to be there is now:
"A positive pattern of [police] checking things"
The sheep bleated:
Some residents expressed support for the plan yesterday, saying they are willing to submit to the checks if it makes the neighborhood safer.
Obviously not a student of history:
They who would give up an essential liberty for temporary security, deserve neither liberty or security.
