Then & Now

Video Find of the Day

Then, we had a police riot. The national media paid attention. They put it on the Nightly News. I watched John Chancellor get escorted out of the Democratic Convention on live TV. Dan Rather got punched in the stomach by security on live TV.

Now. The police don't need to riot. They just control everything. Starting with intimidating raids for non-existent contraband.
