    Did you read the article? It gives me the impression you are correct about this.

    Yup, happened right here in Houston, a town in which the motto of the police is "The badge means you can kill". This is the home of some of the worst police abuses ever documented in America. This is where Jose Campos Torres was handcuffed and thrown into Buffalo Bayou, where he drowned, while the cops who threw him yelled "Let's see if this wetback can swim". This is also where you can be stone cold sober and still end up in court for DWI if a cop doesn't happen to like you. I had my own DWI reversed by the court after the same dumb ass cop did the same thing to a woman who happened to be a secretary at the FBI office here. When the Feds did their investigation, they found 27 more cases where the cop had done the same thing. Lucky for me, mine happened to be one of them. The DWI against me was dismissed, but not until I had shelled out 15 thousand bucks and completed all of my 2 years of probation for it. The cop was fired and prosecuted for official oppression, and the police department of Tomball (The Houston suburb where this happened) was put under Federal oversight. Supposedly, they have now cleaned up their act, but I still drive miles out of my way to avoid driving through there. LOL.

    Where it comes to police abuse of power, Houston, and the surrounding area, is second to none.

    As for that crooked cop's lawsuit, it will be quickly laughed out of court, and I hope that the family has their own day in court with that asswipe.

    Republican? You elected a comedian, Marion Berry, and Anthony Weiner.

    Good grief.
    Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.

    What's the difference?
    List of Schedule I drugs (US) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    The drug or other substance has a high potential for abuse.
    The drug or other substance has no currently accepted medical use in treatment in the United States.
    There is a lack of accepted safety for use of the drug or other substance under medical supervision.

    Where do you see your Scotch not matching this list?

    Perhaps you are right. I'm kind of biased because while I've been broken into a few times while living in different parts of the country... they didn't do it to support their bad scotch habit. lol
