"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."
Benjamin Franklin

Sorry but this comes as no surprise to me; this is egregious but the same sort of abuse of power, albeit with less severe effects, takes place routinely.  And here's the really abusive part - most of the time the cops involved either have personal immunity or else are indemnified by the agency they work for, meaning that they never really suffer personally for their abusive tactics.

Yup.  (I think that the article was headlined to reach a less aware audience.)  These abuses have been going on for quite some time, and only seem to be ramping up in their frequency and egregiousness.

Being stopped by police gives most people a tight sphincter. Even the innocent ones.  Duh.
A day without sunshine is like, you know, night.
