I've followed this thread for some time without jumping in but I have to ask - Ataturk, as someone who follows this sort of thing closely, can you name one instance where you feel the police abused their power? There has to be at least one instance.
My mom told me her freshman dorm was originally a male dorm and they changed it to female that year, so the communal restrooms all still had urinals. One of the girls thought they were hair washing stations if you didn't want to take a full shower, and tried to use it that way at least once.
My brother's dog was hit by a car last night after getting out of the backyard. He was the sweetest chocolate lab, and was so good with my toddler niece and nephew. He's my younger brother, so I always have a hard time when he's hurting and there's nothing I can do to help him.
