You have to be this shade of pink to board this ride

So, remind me again, the Dallas police department has a policy of enforcing ethnic codes, but *Obama* is Hitler, right?

"When news filtered out last week from Dallas, Texas that a rookie police officer had ticketed a woman for not being able to speak English, most people rolled their eyes and thought this was just a case of an overzealous recruit.

Come to find out there are about 20 overzealous officers -- and they're not new recruits.

It's been discovered that since 2007, officers from five different patrol divisions, have issued tickets to 38 Latino drivers for not speaking English."
-- Marisa TreviƱo, "Twenty Dallas police officers added language enforcement to their duties," LatinaLista

I'm getting a little sick and tired of up-is-downism. I truly am.
