The "Big Pharma" companies in the USA have massive influence over the political system there, sponsoring friendly Senators and Congressmen. The USA struggles to legislate for healthcare because the people making the drugs make massive profits under their largely private health system. Its similar to the NRA sponsorships to avoid anti-gun legislation.
I live in the suburbs of a large City in the West Midlands and I haven't seen police on the beat since I moved here 21 years ago. Every couple of months a police car or ambulance will hurtle down the road at full chat with everything blaring - I daren't step out in front of them to say hello or I would be flattened.
Good point, if you have a criminal record then that fact alone will be held against you. The suffragettes didn't know their actions would change society at the time when they were imprisoned and given criminal records as a result of their protests.
I know, too well, being alone during this time. Wish there were intelligent people to talk to about what’s going on, someone to play games with or make puzzles, SOMETHING! Just when I was hoping for improvement, they say maybe another month! Being a people person this isn’t fun at all.

Have a look at:
It's interesting and horrifying at the same time.
I always believe that good conquers evil, Lionel. Its been proved time and again through history-in the end good always prevails. It will happen here as well. Scientists will conquer this virus...if you can call a virus evil that is but what it's doing certainly is.
I believe we'll find the criminal class has swelled beyond reason as people are prosecuted for sunbathing, etc. I'm not saying they should be taken to court but, like prosecuting speeding motorists, it makes criminals of us all.
