A Thousand Cranes starts touring next week and I am so excited. This set is stunning! So are the costumes. So is the music. Daniel made kimonos from the bottom up out of Japanese Indigo fabric. Joey composed nearly 80% of the show himself. We’re touring with a floor which we never do.

"Why do police have quotas? If a doctor went around intentionally sneezing on people to get more patients, that would be seen as a travesty to their profession. But police, can sit around and wait for someone to turn on a red light or commit other mundane ‘offenses’ because they have quotas to meet. Quotas are all the proof we need that policing is not a public service vocation; it’s a business and a subsidiary of Wall Street."

While I was sleeping, this went viral.

this answer on yahoo from a retired officer will add on some further insight to this

Quotas also explain why small and simple offenses like drug possession is MUCH more likely to be pursued by law enforcement than violent and sexual crimes like rape and domestic violence. Think about it, in the time it would take for a small team of cops to catch and prosecute a single serial rapist, they could arrest 30 people for possession or selling drugs. Quotas effect the types of crimes and people charged.
