Sentence me to four more years, thank you
I'mma make you feel a little bit safer
Because it ain't over
See that's how we get your fear to control you
Having someone sentenced to prison might make some people feel as though they are safer, however by telling people this, its also a way to use the public’s fear to control them.
This could be for either someone who gets convicted in the U.S. or terrorists overseas. One example of letting people’s fear of either criminals or terrorists give power to the government is the Patriot Act, which took away certain personal freedoms from citizens in the name of national security.
