Racial bias being a huge takeaway that has come out in the news this past week, in that black people are about seven times more likely to wrongly convicted of murder, than white Americans. Of course, you know, this isn't much of a spoiler alert; I think we all have, kind of known this information to be true. That black people are more likely to be the targets of police misconduct. And police conduct is a huge driver of wrongful convictions that accounts for about half of the exonerations that we know of, with official misconducts being about 51% of cases.

But, you know, the issues facing the black community in the justice system, these are things that we've known for awhile, and the data just confirms it. Of course, there are harsher sentences given to black people than whites, for the same types of crimes. And, you know, for the third year in a row now, we have a record high of exonerations in the U.S.

Down to the Wire: Obama’s DOJ Issues Scathing Report on Systemic Abuse Within Chicago Police
The report also denounced what it concluded was a widespread culture of covering up police misconduct, including tampering with video and audio evidence and intimidating witnesses. “A code of silence exists, and officers and community members know it,” the report said. One sergeant told DOJ investigators that, “if someone comes forward as a whistleblower in the department, they are dead on the street.”

Assuming you actually have something where you live affectionately known as a local hardware store,  maybe you can get them to stock it.

In my hometown near Chitcago they left the fire engine running 24/7 in the winter and it caught fire and burned the firehouse down.

So I'm skeptical, not about the below being a bogus claim (seems so), but about this idea that you can lift the hood of your vehicle to "prevent overheating".

 Around our area it seems to be accepted wisdom among cabbies that you can prevent overheating by "popping" the hood, i.e. releasing the closure latch so that only the secondary "hook" is engaged, with the hood thus being raised an inch or two. I've even seen cabs driving in city traffic with the hood popped part way open like this. The explanation that the hoods of these cars were open to "prevent overheating" seems to be an adoption of this cab driver wisdom.

Maybe it came from the time before coolant systems were properly designed, particularly on US made autos (remember flex fans from J.C. Whitney? They were deep bladed for more airflow at idle, but were supposed to flatten at speed to make them more aerodynamic. Had one on my 68 Buick). Overheating in a properly filled and nonleaking system today would be unheard of, I would think. And I don't know of popping the hood like this would help if it was a Godawful hot day and your radiator/condenser was so clogged with bugs that it had restricted airflow through it. Maybe L8 can chime in on this one.

That's where I was, too. I'd seen some of the police response and it sounded like nonsense, but modern mythology is a powerful thing. I'll buy that they're not doing it to block the cams tho.
 
This from the police made me snicker: "The problems are well known to Chevrolet. May I suggest contacting Chevrolet directly and demanding a remedy and retrofitting of the correction at their expense."

Oh, well. Consider me Snopsed
