    Happy that at long last we are having this stop and frisk trial.
    It is a national disgrace that the NYPD was able to humiliate and abuse black and brown men (and boys) for such a long time with impunity. But better late than never.

    Hilarious that Downey and her husband think that professing their "love" for Obama will shield them from the backlash against the very blatantly racist miniseries.
    Actually it is too sad to be funny.

    Thanks, Sis Dee for your reporting. Looking forward to your Sunday report. Thanks, too, to the Chief and the other members of his crew.

        And to be fair, the History Channel has a reputation for doing very good work.
        This series, apart from being blatantly racist, was also very sloppily done.
