  •  I have been pulled over (12+ / 0-)

    ...for "driving while white" in The Community.  I filed complaints with the Sheriff's office through proper channels because it was a blatant 4th Amendment violation, and when I asked why it had been denied, a ranking officer told me to my face that the Supreme Court was wrong about the Fourth Amendment.

    After that I was warned by a friend who is a detective on a local force to watch my back,. because they would be coming after me.  He was right, they did.  Using an accusation of a seatbelt violation as an excuse I was pulled over by the CHOP and a deputy.  The deputy frisked my Black employees and would have frisked me if I hadn't beat him to the punch by pulling my pants to my knees and flashing him on the side of the road.

    I just about made that guy cry he was so angry and frustrated, and the CHP and my employees were laughing at him.  Best reaction I have ever got out of a cop.

    Later in traffic court, the judge threw out the seatbelt charge on the grounds that the CHP officer was lying, which in fact he was.  My criminal defense attorney friend could not believe I won a case in what he called the "most rigged tribunal in the world."

    But that's how I roll.  I go toe to toe, and I have yet to be arrested.

    Orwell was an optimist.
