Broken

Normally, when you run over someone and then drive away, you are considered to have at least violated a traffic ordnance. But apparently, if you run over someone protesting the Ferguson decision and then speed away, your action is approved of by police: "Police did not take the driver into custody or ticket him, according to KSTP."

Mind, this wasn't in Ferguson. It was in Minneapolis. And the person who was run over was a white woman.

But the system of blue solidarity may be just too entrenched. One bad apple spoils the whole barrel, the saying goes, and a handful of bad cops spoil the whole force - because they are protected instead of indicted.
