Bi-polar State

New Mexico has been in the news quite a bit as of late. On the one paw we have shown ourselves as somewhat progressive in that we have sent the pro-lifers out of the state with their tails between their legs. They wanted to make ABQ the first CITY to ban late-term abortions, but yesterday the vote went decidedly against them. As I have mentioned before, the state tends to be very Catholic, but the people seem to be very open-minded and not in lock-step with The Vatican. That's the way it should be.

On the other paw we have our state police busting off shots at an unarmed motorist while he knows there are kids in the car. That seems to happen a lot as of late. This whole car-as-a-weapon justification needs to stop. Unless the perp is aiming for the cop to run him over, no, a moving vehicle doesn't give you the right to start spraying the vehicle with bullets. So I guess we still have that Wild West mentality of shoot first and ask questions later.
