    Worst guy I ever arrested had 9 homicide warrants, four for shooting cops at traffic stops. I had a good backup riding with me that night, a rare situation, and the stop was for broken taillight and no license plate, initially. Guy had a 9 mm on the seat, and things just were too hinky. He screwed up and gave me his real SS number, busted!

    It can be interpreted as events “inspiring” a panic in young black men about being pulled over for something trivial and being shot. I would expect nothing more than a warning ticket if pulled over for a minor violation. I guess if I was black I might reconsider that idea.

    This is where the politics of division gets us

    An addendum on the event: the “bad guy” was a well dressed white guy who didn’t match the beater car he was driving. My partner that night was a 7’2" black US Park Police officer, and became a good friend. It was an awakening on several levels that in life, things aren’t always what they first appear. Which combining black and white in the same view, like yin-yang, makes far more sense than division, and seeing all as shades of grey brings more colorful, and fulfilling, lives to us all.

    No, Andre was SEVEN FOOT TWO inches tall. He also had more legroom in my Lotus than in his Buick, but the top DID have to be down!

    Driving while black, punishable by death. His taillight wasn’t even out.

    Just doesn’t seem like an offense that’s worth taking a life for.
