Thing is, a cop can take you in for any reason for something like 24-48 hours even without a formal charge. You will be taken in handcuffs, you will be fingerprinted, you will get a DNA swab taken, you will be strip-searched, you will be forced to spread your cheeks and cough in front of a cop... then they let you go after 24 hours with no charges and a have a nice day. All that just because you pissed off a cop and there's no legal recourse.

You may beat the wrap, but you won't beat the ride. All the humiliation is just a bonus for them to 'get ya' because you didn't bow down in a humble enough fashion.

Just like Hulu, in a concession to content providers who are paranoid that someone from Qatar might use VPN to watch Family Guy if Hulu didn't pay for the licensing rights.

Netflix is the same. People from banned countries use VPN to make it seem they are in the US to watch content.

Solution is simply to get 10 people to buy in on a small hosted server in the US and run your own proxy. Small enough to avoid detection and people can still watch Family guy

... and I'll tell you why. Because if I get my LLC to get 1,000 people to each Pony up some money for a PS4, then I use these types of tactics to purchase PS4 from other retailers at a huge discount after having pooled the money from my 1,000 customers (divinding it up so no 1 customer funded 1 whole ps4) , then I provide each customer with a PS4, and then I run to the bank yelling yippee at all the money I just earned...well if anyone calls fraud, I might just get a bailout from the government to keep my LLC in place since I serve such a good purpose in providing access to cheap PS4s. Then the LLC can get a fine of 10% of 1 year's profits as I laugh from my sailboat.
