In this clip we have the deputy do a comedic sketch of protecting the Andy by forcibly enlisting two other people who do not want to be part of this action. While it is filtered with comedy, there is the inescapable thought of an organized authority that tells its workers what to do as and subordinates them in a militaristic fashion of obedience. We can take it to the real world context of who and how authority handles protests (riots) as well as the hyper militarization of police in events like: Zoot Suit Riots, Occupy Movement, BLM protests, and the Insurrection.
