This is typical White man cop stuff. Cops do this all the time. They cruise around, looking for crackheads and prostitutes and if she has a record, he'll tell her to have sex and its no problem or he'll take her to jail. Sometimes if she has any money on her, he'll take that too.

I think the most troubling is how some electoral colleges are forced to vote for the state's choice. For example if the electoral college is a red state that favors Trump, it is expected to vote for Trump. And visa versa-making it unfair for individual voting. Although Obama recommended Clinton concede early when it was clear Trump was winning, that move was extremely pre-mature as we see now. It is my hope that Clinton readdresses the vote count in those rust states that appears to be a...
