Nah, maybe I’m giving them too much credit but if they knew who she was they’d have cooked up a better story. I think they pulled her over because pulling over black people for no reason is what they do and then they realized who she was and realized they’d fucked and started throwing out lame-ass reasons on the spot.

This has racial and political intimidation written all over it. The State Attorney , who is suing the Governor over him reassigning cases after her refusal to recommend the death penalty, just so happens to get pulled over by two white cops.

I understood “driving while black” (or pretty much doing any other activity while black) was a thing - and definitely thought it was bullshit (as in, WTF bullshit, not disbelief-it-was-happening bullshit).

I honestly believe white Americans genuinely have it in their DNA to be Afrophobic (of course, they do not but I really want to believe it). I bet you this guy will tell the media he voted for Obama! I’m not a racist! in his nasty Polish-influenced Philly accent.

As a white, pro-gun, NRA member, this is a bunch of bullshit. The NRA should have been all over this one. But then again, I can’t think of a instance where the NRA defended (or argues, or made noise about) a legally armed white guy who was shot in his car by cops.
