Racial Profiling

An event that stuck with me is the arrest of an African man staying with a family friend. He was out for a walk on a bike path, listening to his Walkman and dancing around, which caught the attention of the police nearby. They approached him, tried to talk to him and question him, and as he reached to turn the volume down to hear them they raised their guns, tackled him, he was brought to the ground, handcuffed, and arrested.

    Impressive rapid response makes me fearful. What was the crime?

    Wtf o_o It’s concerning that they can’t tell the difference between an armed criminal and a man trying to enjoy music, dancing along to his walkman.
