Biff and a second-tier blonde bimbo are in studio and Wanda is playing roving reporter for Action McNews (aka Faux News). This intrepid news-team is all over the Story O'the Day: The Invasion Of A McKinney, TX Pool Party By Them. The McKinney PD was summoned to halt the invasion and an idiot officer was captured in a smartphone video that went viral. The Dumbo knuckledraggers were quick to blame the victim. The unarmed adolescent girl in a two-piece bathing suit was manhandled by the idiot officer. The girl is fortunate that she didn't experience the usual: double-tap to the back of the head from the idiot officer's Glock that is the norm in police operations involving white officers and black civilians. Today, Tom Tomorrow takes a whack at the cops, the Dumbo media, and our numbed response to police brutality from Selma to McKinney. If this is (fair & balanced) moral paralysis, so be it.
