The unraveling of the body politic continues and Tom Tomorrow takes note of our rogue (and militarized) police departments and their many contributions to our mistrust of the Thin Blue Line (US definition). The death toll at the hands of law enforcement officers has climbed to obscene levels. Even more obscene are the acquittals that are given to police-killers by white juries, both grand and trial. If this is the (fair & balanced) truth about policing in 2014, so be it.
