    Wouldn't it be cool if this case generates protests? I could participate and share pics here somehow. Rob

    What's the data on this?

    What's the historical trend of lawsuits against the Phoenix PD?

    And, what's the history of actual awards look like?

    These two world views will both be impacted by our increasing loss of freedom if we descend into true autocracy:

    I did some research and Turkey seems to be a country that serves as a model of a nation state rapidly sliding towards autocracy with Erdogan, it's leader, striking me as somewhat similar to Trump in temperament and (lack of) character. Very scary! And I hope your recovery is progressing well, Tammy - good to see your post here. Rob

    Thank you, Tammy, for the link. It's what I've been thinking and scary to see that my thinking is accurate. I am glad you are feeling better.

    How do these scholars quantify ďautocratizationĒ or ďrespect for the constitutionĒ for these graphs? They would seem to be pretty subjective traits to assign scores for.

    I was going to delve into this article later because certainly loss of “freedom” is something that concerns me greatly as a citizen. So I’m glad you got into it saving me having to do it. But I do realize it when I use the word freedom I have to define it as to how I’m using it.
