I've been beaten by the pg cops for no reason and I'm a white guy. I should have sued. We all know cops are above the law and there isn't anyone here that has a problem with them until they are treated wrong.

I think you should go on a ride along and ask that you ride in baker sector...where the officers deal with students. It will better inform your position. Life is seldom so simple as you describe.
