So can you post some links to show me where English speaking people in NH are getting beaten up for jaywalking and not walking away from policemen? If it's common occurrence here, then I'll worry about the police. I speak the language of the cops in NY and don't plan to walk away from them if they take my ID.
And what are you looking for anyway? To disband the police force in NYC? Take it up with them. I moved from that area almost 20 years ago. It isn't my call.
