A great start to a great yearly event. Be careful though, there's a new sheriff in town and his name is not Reggie Hammond. "Crack down on crime" is acom'in.
"Burning man brings nothing to Pershing county except heartache" says new Sheriff, 39 year old, Jerry Allen. Sporting a cutting edge Fu Manchu, Allen is the new law in town.
I guess it would be a "heartache" if you didn't count:
1. Millions of dollars for Northern Nevada businesses and charities,
2. Cutting edge art and expression,
3. Peacefull gatherings on an annual baiss, the likes of which have not been seen since Woodstock,
4. The continued search for Humaitarian approaches to life itself.
None of that is any comfort to the new Sheriff. It does not represent the new world as befits the sheriff of Pershing County and when you come here, you better listen. A rather Draconian approach to Law Enforcement.
I don't believe anyone including the organizers of Burning Man turn a blind eye to crime. Indeed, when one organizes the third largest city to be built and then torn down in a week in Nevada, that they are unaware that criminal activity does occur like in any other city on the planet. One must take a rational approach to this in order to be the most effective in keeping the peace.
People need to work together not run in with guns ablazing with gauntlets being thrown down. Like Mom says, "Treat others as you would have them treat you". Even this, could work for Reggie Hammond.
