Policing seems like such a rudimentary and basic right. The right to feel safe in your own home seems like something that would always be in someone's subliminal mind. It turns out it took 248 years just to have police funded by taxes. But why was a police force created in America? How did the police force evolve through United State history?

In school, Americans have been taught that slavery ended on December 5, 1865, when the Thirteenth Amendment was ratified across the U.S. However, did slavery really end in America?

The only thing Bears fans could do was watch as the Saints crushed the Bears, 21-9, in the first round of the playoffs. The Bears were low on players on defense due to injuries to starting linebacker Roquan Smith, starting cornerback Jaylon Johnson, nickelback Buster Skrine, and safety DeAndre Houston-Carson. On offense, it wasn’t much better. Rookie wide receiver Darnell Mooney, a key part in Chicago’s offense, was out with an ankle injury, and wide receiver Anthony Miller was ejected in the third quarter. The Bears did not look good against the Saints, with Javon Wims dropping an easy touchdown catch and Mitch Trubisky taking several sacks. In all, the Saints put an embarrassing end to the Bears’ season.
