Today a mother of 5 children had her appeal for liberty denied. Cops saw her stealing and chased after her til she fell down and hit her head. She stole a bottle of coke, two instant ramens and one bag of artificial juice mix, for a total of ~$3.93. She's arrested away from her kids since Sptember.
In resolving to throw her in jail, the judge reasoned that she had stolen (food) before. "Even considering the health crisis, her conduct is of intense reproachability, for she was practicing crime against private property. This is the best measure to keep public order." Kids are 2, 3, 6, 8 and 16.
The judge who made this decision will have a salary starting at ~7k USD. They also get extra support to cover food and housing and transportation costs—all the extras will more or less triple their salary. The finance minister has profited some 2.5 million USD with secret offshore money and by manipulating currency under the guise of neoliberal measures. He's in freedom.
When cops talk about the need to preserve the order, this is the order that is meant.
