I don't now if police abuse is growing worse--or more Americans are hearing about it.

Most mornings, going to work, my bus driver & one of his passengers dissect the news story of the day. (They are both articulate African-American gentlemen of middle years.) Sometimes they discuss something truly tragic--the Houston Texans....

The other day, the driver was explaining how he told his daughter to always do the driving when she borrowed his car. (A pretty nice one, I believe.) He explained that, if her boyfriend drove, the police would pull them right over. She let him drive once--and he was pulled over. Nothing bad happened, but she learned how the world still works.

To these guys, that's just the way things are.....
