i have a dim view of 'law enforcement.' perhaps it's from watching too much cops and america's most wanted. i used to be a fan. but- then we got the patriot act and the military commissions act- and when you put that together with the 'stupidity' of racial profiling and overt racism and too much power in the police forces- you get para military mindsets with guns and equipment to match. hence, the uptick in the 'tase first ask questions later' mentality that has killed hundreds needlessly. anyhoo- as if i needed anymore reason to dislike police- here are a few links to stupidity:

officers suspended for running background checks- on the president

cops spin 'wheel of fortune' to decide who to arrest

cop assigned to predominately 'minority' section of boston calls gates 'banana eating jungle monkey'

and- completely unrelated- hillary clinton will probably run for president again which makes her middle eat policies even more irritating to me
