No success like failure

ACLU race profiling specialist alleges he was unfairly profiled

Downing, who is black and wears a short beard, said in his lawsuit that he was stopped by a state trooper and asked to show identification after he left the gate area and made a phone call in the terminal. When he declined, Downing said, he was told to leave the airport, but was then stopped again. He was surrounded by four state troopers and told he was under arrest for not failing to produce identification.

The cops can arrest you for obeying them? That does seem unfair.

What more proof do you need that our society wants black people to fail?

Not failing to refuse to not produce identification is a serious offense. I hope he rots in jail.

He's lucky he didn't get tased in this situation.
