"Who the hell does Armtrong think he is"

Did you happen to see this article on Senator Armstorng's son and his running from the law during a weapons search? And in typical politician fashion, Senator Armstrong attempts to pass legislation against the deputy and their "power".

I am not surprised that this article ran in the Lancaster Newspapers on a Friday (and a holiday). Traditionally, newspaper viewership is drastically down on holidays. I was also intrigued by the feedback from one Lancaster Newspaper viewer on the topic of racial differences:

If it was anyone else in this county, especially a Puerto Rican or Black who was stopped like that, and ran from the cops there would be a army after them, and they would be in jail or dead. Who the hell does Armtrong think he is..He's not above the law...
