Arresting Prophecy

Interesting: man arrested for claiming to be God. Listen to the first minute of the report: arrested "under the welfare code," he could've been placed under protective custody for 72 hours:

Look, I know: the guy was probably crazy and possibly dangerous; it's likely that he wasn't really God. But this welfare code seems shady to me. It's like we've extended "the Bush doctrine" into everyday legal affairs -- now if you "act erratically" you can be arrested even before committing a crime? Anyone remember Minority Report? Come on, America.
