Soon as they took out pay phones, I knowed there was a war on the poor. It’s symbolic.
Take the cops. It’s like whatever rules held them back in the old days is gone. In them times, a cop might roust a brother for sleeping where he ain’t supposed to. Maybe even they arrest you for vag and take you downtown. Depending on the time of day, you might even get a meal if you was sober enough to eat.
Not no more. Nowadays they curse you, hit you with them batons, maybe even shock you with them stun guns.
