    Not for any loss in brain function.  I feel terrible for him.  Few things are more frightening than the specter of brain damage.

    My father was a police lieutenant, and I used to believe in the good intentions of police departments.  Their increasing militarization and use as a security force furthering the interests and rapacious greed of the mega-wealthy is rapidly changing my opinion, especially considering how eagerly and aggressively some PDs are embracing that role.  They are supposed to be public servants, not thuggish enforcers acting against the rest of us - particularly offensive considering non-1%ers DO pay our fair share of taxes.
