Maybe best to clarify exactly what is meant by reporting to police twice a day means/entails.
You can ask someone to hold out their hand and you push against it. They push back.
You can show them this paper explaining why punishment is usually the wrong thing to do:
But both of those things are too difficult for police to understand.
Is there an Aesop's fable for this?
One conclusion from that paper above would be that the accurate way to manipulate behaviour would be to withhold the $10k rather than beating people.
Whatâ€™s not too difficult to understand is not using their discretion to harass normal people going about their business and not beating those already under arrest. Ironically enough, some consequences for them would be helpful with that, and youâ€™d think even the pro-order crowd should be for it.
