Said to be the result of a four-year investigation, the six-part series, “Policing for Profit,” that aired Dec. 27 on Nashville’s NewsChannel 5 should send chills up your spine and, at a minimum, should cause you to think twice about traveling through states like Tennessee. Though I hate to begin 2015 this way, I was attracted to it like a moth to a porch light on a dark summer evening. Part One appears below.
Is this kind of thing going on in your state? I think a lot of races for state governorships could be won by candidates who choose to include issues like “policing for profit” and civil asset forfeiture as planks on their campaign platforms.
Food for thought as I prepare to enjoy today’s football games!
