Sincere People on YouTube Urge You to Rat Out Your Bearded Neighbors

• Reason / Katherine Mangu-Ward
Today's creepy Orwellian public service announcement is brought to you by the city of Los Angeles. Enjoy the :23 mark, where we learn that reporting is easy, and critical thinking is hard. A comically serious chubby nerd urges you to "let law enforcement determine if it's a threat" and then skinny sensitive guy on super zoom insists that we "let the experts decide."

 Isn't this "Chris Mathews" in the commercials as the geeky villan counter to Alltel's golden boy? Traveling around in the "Wizard" van keeping an eye on the community. Narcing out neighbors who haven't cut their grass in a week. What a sack of tools.

Shhh...don't tell anyone, because they're supposed to be real, earnest, busybodies, but they're actually paid actors.
