SubRosa Robbed; Refuses to Work With Police
SubRosa chooses to work with the community rather than with police.
From the SubRosa website:
We had a break-in/burglary in the early hours of Sat, June 26. Someone broke a window, took some stuff from the backroom and the money we had in the register, which didn't really amount to much.
And since choosing to work with the community instead of the police is a big frickin' deal apparently, the corporate news and and police spokesman Zach Friend have to go into overtime to say the sky is falling if you don't let cops into every aspect of your lives. If you choose not to have the punitive arm of the state further ruin some dude's life, you apparently are "actively hindering a criminal investigation."
This has to be the funniest moment in local TV news when Zach Friend is babbling on about community policing and the video is showing the plywood covering the broken window ion which is scrawled a cartoon cow saying SMASH THE STATE NOT OUR WINDOWS.
