Heck, if laws were applied equally to the politically privileged, Sharpton would already be in jail for tax evasion. He owes millions and the IRS seems to be taking little to no action to collect the money.
I heard an interesting statistic on the news this morning. It said that there are 860,000 cops in the US, local, state, & federal. Assuming that number is reasonably in the ballpark, then it wouldn’t take but a very small % of corrupt or out of control cops to keep the headlines full of the latest abuse.
