It was reported by Bloomberg Business that it would cost $333 million dollars per day to shut down the city of Boston. The loss of business from this shut down could put many struggling businesses under or put them at risk of being short on their rent.
To add insult to injury, the police have once again proven the age old cliche about cops spending their days arresting potheads and eating donuts.
Even though Boston is under a strict lockdown during the manhunt for bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, Massachusetts-based Dunkin’ Donuts remains open to serve first responders, BuzzFeed reports.
A Newton store manager told BuzzFeed, ”There was an automated message going around telling businesses to close, but because we’re Dunkin’ Donuts, we called the police department and they said we didn’t have to.”
“At the direction of authorities, select Dunkin’ Donuts restaurants in the Boston area are open to take care of needs of law enforcement and first responders,” spokeswoman Lindsay Harrington told Boston.com. “We are encouraging our guests to stay home today and abide by the lockdown, per the Governor’s recommendation.”
The problem with this situation really doesn’t have as much to do with cops and donuts as it does the arbitrary orders that are being passed down by those in authority. Only those who can directly serve the kings guards are allowed to operate their businesses or move about freely, everyone else is forced to stay indoors, have their houses searched by military agents and be subject to a total police state.
