    opposes the Federalization of police functions traditionally handled, and more importantly funded, at the local level. With this, I agree. With the federal funding comes strings, pushing them towards political surveilence and drug law enforcement, and at the same time, a reduction in accountability to local elected officials, who don't get to monitor the multijurisdiction task forces, participation in which is a condition of funding.

    When Sheriff Arpaio asks for my papers, I'll hand him a pack of ZigZags.
