“Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth.”
So, the black friends that were racially profiled at that Philly Starbucks asked for their payback for their humiliation and troubles…$1 each and $200,000 NOT FOR THEM, but for a youth employment program for young entrepreneurs.
Now, these guys were going to their local café to meet a friend over a real estate deal and some java when the popo came in, saw them, arrested them, and escorted them out in front of the shocked patrons. They were just waiting in line, minding their own as far as anyone could tell…when BAM!
If it’d been us, I’d’ve been pissed and wanted someone’s head whether it was MPD, Starbucks, or anyone of the bystanders, who LET it happen. They’re just guilty for NOT doing anything to stop the false arrests than the cops that DID do it.
Now, Joey and I’ve been stopped by MPD while walking the streets before. That’s how I know a new cop from an old one. The old cops wave or head nod as they drive by. One time, we were stopped, because a cop wanted to ask where I’ve been and where I was going. It was something about, I don’t know. I just knew I was minding my own with my wife. It did make me wonder why he stopped the crip.
Trust me, if I’m gonna do something, I’m gonna sign off on it.
But, seriously, this just goes to show what stand up guys these two are. We should take notes.
Be good to each other.
