This sounds familiar. Long term abhorrent behavioral symptoms repeatedly denied, rationalized, justified then minimized in weight against the big picture. Critics of the behavior attacked as UN-American, not like us. Then an apology, but reneging with a qualifier, maybe a program or two to appease the masses (something that can be ripped into ineffective shreds later in a single legislative session) and back to the same old behavior. Sure that sounds like Trump and his Republican congressional supporters, even the not-so-supportive supporters, but it also sounds like Chicago police.
