Translation:

"In an environment where law enforcemant lacks the ability
to distinguish friend from foe and dangerous situations
from the benign, and where we cannot be held accountable
for absurd overreaction and misuse of resources, the
public should avoid providing opportunities for us to
look silly, by limiting their activities to those we
understand and officially sanction, such as shopping and
passively consuming paid entertainment at approved
venues."
