Life is music May 28, 2013: World gone crazy edition

It’s another rudieTuesday, which means another day where I equate a news event with a song.

As if the DOJ snooping around at the AP wasn’t bad enough, news broke today that Seattle police withheld records about a May Day memo, knowingly violating public records laws.

These two events are hardly the first moments of government secrecy, but they did come to light awfully close together. How can a government and police force exist for the people when they violate the very laws they’re supposed to be upholding?

We’re living in an state of being where we’re told more and more frequently it shouldn’t matter that we’re losing our civil liberties if we have nothing to hide. Meanwhile, we’re living under a law system that is becoming increasingly more secretive. I see a serious disconnect when people are seen as inherently guilty rather than innocent, while the powers that are supposed to protect justice engage in an ever-expanding blackout.

Try and tell me we’re not living in a world gone crazy. The Slackers know it, and they’re right.

Blogger’s note: I realize I used a Slackers song for the AP story, too. It’s coincidence, but it was so fitting to use one of their songs here, too, that I couldn’t not do it. RudieTuesdays for the win.
