Disturbing Video of Moats' Run-in With Police

There was a troubling story out of Texas last night about a Dallas police officer -- Robert Powell -- who pulled over, and harassed, Texans running back Ryan Moats. There was a short pursuit that ended with Moats eventually stopping his car in a hospital parking lot. Moats had good reason: His mother-in-law was inside the hospital, struggling for her life. She had breast cancer, and died shortly thereafter. ↵
