In ?Small Town, Quiet Town, Safe Town?, author Jeremy Steben validly argues that police officers in today?s society ignore the constitutional rights of Americans by hunting people by their age, and not their actual crimes. By using a sarcastic tone Steben shows his humorous outlook on how today?s police officers act. In Steben?s small town in Connecticut, he has noticed an increase in this kind of police behavior. Being a teenager himself he has been pulled over for doing nothing wrong, only for his age. This is a violation of people?s rights and privacy.

Steben sarcastically says ?I accept and realize that to the greater good I must occasionally give up a few constitutional rights, a sacrifice that I make gladly.? showing his view on how
