    I and an increasingly number of Americans could care less. Any major coverage of the Wheeling police officer, going 100 in a 35, no lights or sirens and running over and killing a pedestrian in a crosswalk, without manslaughter/negligence charges filed? Many of these officers use their badges to break the laws while not being accountable for actions that result in injury and death.
