back in '09 Obama skipped National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Day to do a photo op with the World Series Champion Philadelphia Phillies. So now he invites a singer (who named his daughter after a convicted Black Panther cop killer)  to read poetry to children.Bet there are plenty that don't see it as meaningless, but i respect your opinion to think it that it is so.

Copsguy, If Common raps about constantly carrying a firearm, in a city that has outlawed the practice.  Does that give a cop probable cause for a search?
