Why ordinary people don't trust those in government, reason # 123,456

This comes from Detroit and the president of the city council:

"Council President Monica Conyers has been using a police officer and department-issued car to chauffeur one of her sons to a private suburban school about 15 miles from the city.
It's unclear how long Conyers has used the officer to escort her son, but Detroit News staffers witnessed an unmarked Crown Victoria police car drive the youth to school on Monday and Tuesday."

Overtime work for police officers assigned to the council has doubled since Conyers has been president. No wonder government costs always seem to go up. And this is just at the local level...
