  1. Tom Mathews says:

    As a white person I am shocked the an officer acted so hostile over an ID card. The young man presenting it seemed very calm and did nothing to antagonize the so called officer. What a jerk. This guy needs some PR training or needs to be fired. He isn’t right for this job. As for the ID card, that is new to me. I didn’t know about tribal ID cards. This is a great article.
