    Conserving the peace

    I was walking down the road the other day and noticed a police car. After I verified that I was not doing anything wrong, checked where all the surveillance cameras were, checked the sky for drones, etc., , I noticed that the byline on the vehicle was "Conserving the peace". I typically see something like "to protect and serve", "preserving the peace"/"keeping the peace", and the like.

    Here are some dictionary definitions:

    Conserve: to prevent injury, decay, waste, or loss of
    Preserve: to keep alive or in existence; make lasting; to keep safe from harm or injury; protect or spare.

    Interesting use of words. Must be one of those green initiatives.

    Whatever line they use. Its does not apply to me as an individual.
    Don"t let stupid be your skill set....

    And Shepards we shall be, for Thee, my Lord, for Thee,
    Power hath descended forth from Thy hand, So that our feet may swiftly carry out thy command,
    And we shall flow a river forth to Thee, And teeming with souls shall it ever be,

    IMO: Green state, where "conservation" plays better with the public. Marketing twist. Same mission.

    They are conserving what peace there is to use when it gets REALLY bad.

    Unless you are in Nevada where I think its being changed to "To commandeer and confiscate"
    You dont have to believe a train is coming. Itll run over you anyway.
