Dude pulled me over to give a written warning, and I was out of state. Wrapped on the fucking window with a gun when he pulled us over and scared the shit out of my family. Googled it and turns out there's a bunch of posts about this shit happening.
In theory...wouldn't the worst offenders getting away with everything raise the baseline for any marginally bad cop who's less stupid about getting caught, to actually get caught for anything, thus perpetuating the cycle?
IE: bad cop with 10 settlements = everyone hates him
terrible cop with a history of atrocities but not as stupid with 0 settlements = looks great on the record now.
Sounds like this is how it already operates, they're presumed innocent until they suddenly rack up a million settlements.
The fact that the focus is not on a symmetrical connection tells you that they are firmly in the mindset of comcast as a normal connection metric. Vs actual fiber being normally something like 100/100, which ISP's would cry about.
It's super simple and dead obvious why news agencies are scared to report on the inefficiencies:
they're afraid of the impact of pissing off the ISP's as the ISP's have continued to grow (and in many cases, control many media sources). So they do nothing because of course they won't.
This is a bit overblown. You throw a lot of stuff together that aren't necessarily linked. The problem at it's core, is people willingly or coincidentally, entirely missing what's happening in a situation and yet trying to regulate it anyway.
Thus, the problem isn't the regulation or a lack thereof, but the heavy-handed results.
Abdictating the regulation to "parent better" isn't really an answer to the situation either.
All of this basically ignores that Facebook could do better. It's not just that people need to do better themselves as well, and the one is not mutually exclusive of the other.
Oh man! how will we survive! We've only had tv signals going through walls for an entire century now and cellphone signals going through walls for a few decades, and wifi for a few decades. Clearly this is all scary and too new for us!
