Of course people who live in US and are its citizens have to know (or at least make an effort to learn) the language. But come on! American tourist who hired car in ,say, Brazil would be fined if he cannot speak Portuguese? This is ridiculous. Person should be punished by police for behaving against the laws only. And laws are not set by police.

So basically, Dallas police are too stupid to understand one of the simplest languages in the world, one that they've been right next door to for the last hundred and fifty years - ever since Americans moved into Mexico?
Texas needs to work harder than this to surprise me.
