I agree.

Is it? I thought the criteria was that the addresses were to be used
within the ARIN region, irrespective of legal presence? Would ARIN
deny addresses to a French company running web servers on leased VMs
in Manhattan?

I want to echo other folks sentiments regarding participation by law
enforcement: these are good folks whose voices are and should be
welcome here. Everything else being equal, we should choose to make
their endeavors more effective.

Of course, "everything else being equal" is a big caveat. A policy
which is unsound, excessive or otherwise broken absent law enforcement
considerations remains so when those considerations are factored in.
