What's Changed?

So I'm kind of curious: what's changed? I'm not sure you can say it's just a slow news day or period, though we are in a literal and figurative first of the year cold start. I do wonder whether the increased focus on law enforcement over the last two years is part of the story and perhaps the climate created by the GOP presidential nomination.

Whatever it is, this is way, way more coverage of this kind of story than we usually see.
