No, I'm not. And frankly, ALL legislation is control over people. At its core ... that's all that any/every piece of legislation is.

Our department is great about trying to get people the help they need but there are limitations in the laws that allow people to fall through the cracks. We (as officers) are also firm believers in home discipline and handling things without calling the law in the first place. People's lack of understanding what law enforcement is there for is another issue. They aren't there to wipe people's schitty azzes because they can't figure out their own problems. They are there to handle real issues.
