If I were to traipse around the city wearing nothing but a smile, I would be in violation of New York Penal Law § 245.00 Public lewdness. More than likely, I would be escorted down to the precinct, given something to cover up the unmentionables and held over for hearing.
Suppose upon release, I immediately shrugged off the ratty old blanket and opted for a second dose of naked traipsing right out in front of the precinct? What do you suppose would happen then? Correct... back in the slammer...right?
Now, suppose I am a fully clothed illegal alien, and I was arrested, run through the system and given a Court date to address my illegal status. If I were to be let go at that moment in time (as an illegal alien) I am still in violation of the law. Essentially, I am, again, traipsing around New York County breaking the law with blatant disregard just as I was before being arrested.
So my question is this...how, exactly, does law enforcement (be it municipal police, or Federal Immigration Officers) justify knowingly allowing someone to break the law continuously between the time they are arrested and the date of their set hearing? The crime is not based on an occurrence. It is a trespass of sorts....an ongoing one. Would the authorities not be obligated to stop an ongoing crime should they have knowledge of such?

"There are no austerity measures for the criminal gangs."
He added that police officers caught in the open are often met with baseball bats, iron bars and firearms.
"They will also be heavily outnumbered," he said. "Even if we manage to get one of the counties very few police dogs to respond, the dogs can be stabbed or shot and the handlers beaten half to death.
"With our tiny numbers of police available for such a huge county, our pathetically underpowered vehicles and our uniquely unarmed status, the thieves rule this county at night now, not us.
"Local people don't like it when masked gangs run amok in their village and the local police are powerless to stop it.
Somalia?...Rwanda?...How about Pakistan?"They also don't like seeing their high street smashed to pieces when they wake up in the morning, with a huge hole in the bank and all their money gone."
Nope...it's Jolly Ole' England. It's, also, a good argument to stuff multi-culturalism and stringent gun laws up their stiff non-proletarian bums.

Heh...gosh...what an asset to any company out there looking for someone with convictions. Or not. Here's the deal. If you come to me for a job (and yes...I hire quite a few people personally when I have to the time to get involved), I will turn you down flat if I see one visible tattoo on your body.Bryon Widner had tattooed brutish symbols including a blood-soaked razor, swastikas and the letters "HATE" on his face and body during his years in the white power movement. After he left the movement, he found he was shunned on job sites, in stores and restaurants, according to a story published in 2011 by The Associated Press.
Discriminatory? Unfair? Old Fashioned? I don't care what you think about my hiring measures. I don't want someone who permanently inked their skin working in my organization because those people showed atrociously bad judgement in their personal lives. Why should their contributions commercially/professionally be any different?
But...but...but...everyone has a tattoo nowadays. You're living in the past. Yeah...so what...my company...my rules. It's worked out very well so far (much better than my competitors).

CONFLUENCE, Pa. - A well-known doctor with a permit to carry a concealed weapon has been charged with having a gun on school property when he picked up a child at a southwestern Pennsylvania high school about three hours after the school shootings last month in Newtown, Conn.
Were this me...my response would be rather eloquent. I would request a meeting with the principal. At that meeting, I would call the police and report the principal for violation of the "zero tolerance policy" due to the possession of a letter opener, which could be used as a knife. I would insist on an arrest, then a search of the entire school to identify all teachers and staff in possession of a similar "instrument of harm."State police say they've charged 41-year-old chiropractor Charles King II because the state school code prohibits weapons on school property in most instances. Police waited nearly three weeks to file the charges because they're not sure whether the carry permit is an exception, though Somerset County District Attorney Lisa Lazzari-Strasiser doesn't believe it is.
Shoe...enjoy the other foot.

She gave the term hush money a whole new meaning.
For more than a half-century, Mary McConnell Bailey lived an incredibly quiet and unassuming life.
The shy widow, whose husband died in World War II, had no children, lived in a modest apartment on the East Side, and volunteered at a hospital and schools.
She died at age 88 as quietly as she lived. She never wanted an obit.
In the words of the Occupiers...she didn't pay her fair share. A patriot would have flaunted their wealth, and made sure that such capital was turned over to the New York Inheritance Tax as well as the Federal Estate Tax. What a greedy woman. She's what's wrong with this country?But she’ll now be remembered as a major philanthropist. She left a $20 million fortune nobody dreamed she had to her favorite New York institutions — the New York Public Library and Central Park.
That's sarcasm, if any of the Occupiers who are proficient in reading ended up muddling through the words.

I'm not one to watch television on a regular basis, but there is one show I truly enjoy...Ghost Hunters. It's a SyFy offering that you can catch weekly. As the title suggests, a group of paranormal investigators travel throughout the United States and Canada investigating locations thought to be haunted. The shopping list is expected (shadow characters, apparitions, voices, footsteps, moving objects...etc.). It's always approached by this crew as an effort to debunk the claims and then collect evidence on what they can't explain. It's fun.
That's where Albert Einstein comes in with his Theory on Relativity. Einstein was convinced beyond a shadow of a doubt in his later career that time doesn't exist in a linear fashion. Instead, it was his conviction that the past, present and future all exist at the same time. Do you see where I'm going with this? It is all one single existence.
Since there exists in this four dimensional structure [space-time] no longer any sections which represent "now" objectively, the concepts of happening and becoming are indeed not completely suspended, but yet complicated. It appears therefore more natural to think of physical reality as a four dimensional existence, instead of, as hitherto, the evolution of a three dimensional existence.--Einstein (1952)
So, the footsteps heard above the paranormal investigator in a seemingly empty attic with no floors is, in fact, a "real time" sound of the past. Only, it isn't really the past. So if past, present, and future all exist simultaneously, is it any wonder that the T.A.P.s guys hear things like this?
When you evaluate a significant number of Electronic Voice Phenomenon (EVP) collections, those subjects that seem to possess intelligence in their answers indicate that they do not believe they are dead. Perhaps they aren't. They're just confused as to how a voice seems to pop up out of the ether asking them questions in their bedroom.
On a side note, this brings all kinds of fascinating questions to the forefront in reference to the mechanics of some serial killers out there. Hearing voices in one's head takes on a whole new meaning.

A day of fun on a frozen California lake becomes pandemonium after one person falls through the ice, then another... and another.
