Analysis and Conclusion relative to theft:

The police were sequestering (stealing) use of public lands from use by those tax-payers in the population that were either opposed to being around marijuana users or of breathing environmental air containing marijuana chemicals in their (belonging to them) public places. The police were not enforcing the law as they are hired in the public trust to do. Receiving a salary to do something for a time, and not doing what that something is during that time, is stealing from the employer. In this case it is stealing tax-paid salary from the public at large. Creating a public environment that allows illegal public actions in front of public law enforcement officials can fall into a category of dangerous amusement that is barely inside the theft area of the MOT Meter, and can be described as the sequestering actions of “Wild and Crazy Guys” that are not working in accordance with the contracted police job description. This MOT Ballot weighs the theft of protection by the law from the populace by law enforcers publicly condoning illegal activity.
