It makes sense, once you've grasped the idea of godless amoral liberals imposing Sharia law.
First, do no harm.
That's what they want . The sad fact is that there's nothing he can do about it .
Happens a lot in churches, residential schools, in children's homes, in hospitals, even at the BBC... pretty much anywhere institutional authority comes into play. I'm starting to form the horrifying opinion that it is not particularly unusual but a fairly normal method for authoritarians to express their control over the vulnerable. Naturally in militia groups they often all think they're the captain.
I grew up in a wealthy area. I babysat for some people who were quite wealthy--once. The dad paid me for three hours and 15 minutes (no rounding to 4 hours for him) AND he deducted the price of the coke I drank! What a douche! So I didn't babysit for them again (the kids were brats).
I also babysat for a mob-connected family, although I didn't understand about the mob at the time. I thought it was weird that they had these guys lurking around--but they still hired the 15 year old girl from across the road to babysit the kids. They paid well, though. In fact, I also reaped the benefits of a bet--I had shown one of the body-guard type guys how a great-horned owl always came out for a day-time wing-stretch at 2:00 in the afternoon (I used to ride horseback across their property--everyone's property--so I knew all of the critters). One day, I came by and a bunch of guys were heading out into the woods. The man had boasted about the owl, and bets were made. The owl emerged, actually, to cheers and "Ooos." I was given a "cut." I bought a 15th century Ortellius map with the proceeds.
