It happens every day somewhere in America. It happened in Hillsboro on Monday, and it lasted all of two minutes.
But now there are a slew of news stories all over the media that this was the ultimate evil, racial profiling.
‘Scuse me, I have white friends and black friends and even Native American friends who have been stopped mistakenly, and they understand it’s just cops doing their job. But because this two minute incident involved a Latino American in a sanctuary city of a sanctuary county of a sanctuary state it’s an outrage, right?

Even when it takes two whole minutes out of our busy lives.
