#atxcouncil: We Won't Snitch (but be responsible)

"For strangers have risen up against me,
And oppressors have sought after my life;
They have not set God before them. Selah"

Psalm 54:3

Well, this is all sorts of terrible:
Adler then stated that they are hoping for Austinites to “self-police,” and affirmed that “these kinds of orders carry with them criminal penalties and the force of law.” At this point, he urged residents to report those who are not complying with the order. “If you see violations in the community, construction sites, restaurants, it’d be good to call 311 and let the city and the county know that that’s happening.”
It's completely self-explanatory why that's awful.

That being said, seriously people, be responsible.

Here's what we mean by "responsible": Don't gratuitously hang out in large groups.  It's just reckless.  It gives the petty tyrants all the ammunition they need.  In terms of responsible...this ain't it.

We're not saying that every individual needs to comply with every jot and tittle of this looney tunes order at every second of their life.  Certainly not.  But there's a difference between common sense and stupidity.

Bottom Line:  Steve Adler needs to back off...but neither should he be given easy material with which to work.
