    Are you puzzled about why white cops continue to kill unarmed black people when they’re under such a huge microscope? We do we keep seeing the scenario over & over again. Why does this phenomenon exist when police know they’re being videotaped...there’s extreme public reaction...and increased lack of trust of police. Yet the incidents continue at almost a faster pace.

    Where’s the line between a legitimate auto injury and insurance fraud? Louisiana has the highest car insurance rates and the highest rate of injury claims. Do you think most of the claims are legit or bogus? The average auto insurance rate is $2,699 per year; the national average is a little more than $1,500. Louisiana also has the highest frequency of bodily injury claims. Have you ever been in an accident? Were claims of injuries made? Were they legitimate or not?
