Sheriff exposes white, liberal columnist’s traffic stop tale for the lie that it is | New York Post:
"A sheriff in Missouri is firing back at a now-suspended newspaper columnist who claimed to experience what “minority motorists” must feel when getting pulled over by cops, saying he was lucky he didn’t “get shot” during a recent traffic stop.
