Senators (and police) behaving badly

Not that I have any personal experience in the matter, but do cops normally drive you home if you are reported too drunk to do it on your own?

The special treatment afforded Sen. Anthony Galluccio by the Cambridge police also stands in rather sharp contrast to the "courtesies" extended Henry Louis Gates when police received a call that could have been considered an alert to a potential crime.

So we have the spectacle of yet another member of the Massachusetts Legislature behaving badly, compounded by special treatment. Galluccio has gotten a lot of free passes for his driving faults -- up until the time he decided to leave the scene of an accident.

No wonder lawmakers don't have time to tackle the state's problems. They are too busy dealing with their own.
