yeah, that's a scary one. and fears are justified. but it's not good to generalize. it's not like that was the NC state police. it was a county deputy and a group of [probably racist] **** who think they ARE the law.
that said, i know NC very well. it has some of the scariest backroads with some of the slaphappiest hilbilly cops i've ever seen. disproportionately so for such a well educated and progressive (for the south) state. there's some janky AF law enforcement. i seent it!
TBF, that's more of a city/rural thing I'd assume, where the cities are progressive but the rural areas are conservative, but the city population outnumbers the rural population so they're more progressive overall
Same thing with my state, we're pretty progressive overall cause we have a big city population but we have a lot of backwoods places that are as red as they get, and I live in one of those areas. Granted, our biggest city has less than 150 thousand people in it, but there's enough mid sized cities to balance out the rural areas
Progressive? What state is that, if you don't mind? I'm still trying to figure out where my next move will be. Let me guess. Oregon or Washington?
Our cities are bigger than that!
