16. No, nobody here has all the details. BUT... many of us have lived where cops are off the rails.
Edited on Fri Oct-12-07 05:43 PM by bobbolink
So, we're inclined to demand that cops explain themselves.

If you haven't had that experience, then maybe you don't understand that.

edited to say: I repeat, until muddleclass (and most likely *white*) folk have experienced this, not much is likely to change.

Bring it on. :(
