City Of New Orleans Urges Citizens To Spy On One Another



You can't make this stuff up.


This is not satire. This is real:

The city encourages people filing complaints to include date- and time-stamped photographs documenting illegal smoking.

...and of course, this would include taking unwarranted photographs of vapers like myself..


What country is this again?

Democracy and health are synonymous entities. This is not a zero sum game, for neither can survive without the other. Both are suffering as a result.
