The US just sounds like a police state these days. I've been stopped by cops once in 20 years and that was for speeding when I was 19. No checkpoints, no 'surveys'. WTH is that with picking up kids from school, you can't wander in and take them out anytime of the day? I think I'd leave the country.

At my daughters school there were a few morons who would tear ass into the parking lot, try to park right beside the doors and do other stupid shit. Kids were walking between cars because they were everywhere, not parked properly, lined up at the curb and so on. They made everyone park on the road near the school instead of at the school itself for safety reasons because there were a few close calls. This wouldn't be a big deal but it makes crazy long lines when everyone gets off work, obstructs traffic and other shit. So they probably are just trying to keep it orderly which is fine. Of course it could also just be the constantly overreaching teachers and school boards these days. I'm so tired of getting school notices about new restrictions, things kids cant bring into school and so on.

The part where I get pissed off is when the dad walks on foot into the school and is told that he can't take his kids because he "skipped the line". That's just some power tripping fucking idiot. The guard is lucky he didn't end up in the hospital, you do not come between a parent and their children unless the situation is dire or abusive.
