How Random Babbling Becomes Corporate Policy

Making public officers look dumb is a crime.

They should have known they couldn't get away with it. As soon as the Boston PD overreacted with full bomb-squad mobilization to a bunch of home-built, battery powered light-brites depicting a bird-flipping moon-dweller, they should have known they were on the lam.

Because they had committed the cardinal sin- they made those in power look bad. Across the US, most of us hear the Attorney General's pitiful "it was a sinister device. It had batteries and wires!" excuse, we realize that the perpetrators of this crime are doomed, doomed, doomed. Not because they caused a public nuisance. No, that responsibility rests squarely on the shoulders of the Boston PD. No, they induced the government to overreaction through their irresponsible use of cheap electronics to make simple displays. And thatwas their crime- they encouraged the government to make itself look bad.

I think they can expect, and deserve, a death penalty for their arrogance.
