I think what's going on here is that cops cannot be seen being defeated. This woman was sacrificed upon the alter of 'you will obey cops, OR ELSE'.

If they would have went away then their jobs, as a whole, would be harder as other the animals on the farm learn that they can in some cases refuse the orders of the pigs. That type of thinking can NOT stand in the minds of any of the other animals on the farm.

This woman was made herself an example. If the pigs show up at your door with a warrant you're not going to get your shotgun because you've seen this all before, and you therefore know how it's going to end.

That's the name of the game here; it's similar to putting heads on sticks as a show of your superiority.

The biggest gang WILL keep control. And they'll sacrifice any lives necessary to do it. Because if they don't another gang will. It's the law of the farm. And we are, after all, still animals.

Well if gun manufactures and sellers can't be held to account for the dissemination of weapons used in murders then I don't see how communications providers can be held responsible for the part they unwittingly played in the facilitation of crimes.

Would be a bit of a double-standard, don't you think?

Not to mention unreasonable.
