I’ve been watching the chest pounding about the ambush killings of two police officers in New York by a crazy man with a long criminal history.

Will it ever end? I am talking about the State of Connecticut’s continued discrimination against state-recognized Indian Tribes when those Tribes continue to struggle to gain recognition by the U.S. Government.
