For rulers hold no terror for those who do right, but for those who do wrong. Do you want to be free from fear of the one in authority? Then do what is right and you will be commended. Romans 13:3
In most cases, the principle of this verse is true. We do live in an age where if you are in authority and you abuse that authority, there just might be a YouTube video before the end of the day showing just how you abused it. There are many such videos weekly online. In some places, it has gotten so bad that the authorities will not allow you to record their interaction with you. Of course that in itself is an abuse of authority.
Pray for the local authorities where you live. Often they have to make life or death decisions almost without fully analyzing what is happening. They feel the pressures from many sides.
