    I would change it to "has become" and completely agree. Nicely stated but pretty sad it is so.

    Take a couple of days and watch "Live PD" on Friday and Saturday, no driver lic, no vehicle registration, no insurance, and they all have drugs inside someone else's pants that they are wearing. My favorite are those who reside in NYE county NV...…...Jetspray
