This is bazarre.If christian purchased the belt with cash why was he required to show ID.When approached by the officers and asked about the belt, he should have asked them what belt.If they said the belt in the bag he should have asked why do you think there is a belt in my bag.This would have allowed him to extract the source of thir information.Based on what i am reading barneys and nypd seem to have some type of unusual relationship. The culprit is nypd.NYPD has been profiling christian prior to the barneys incident. Their opportunity to question him was the day he bought the belt.Barneys was stupid to participate in any way.The designer of the belt need to address the issue. His sales will be hurt.i donot believe the designr intended for the belt to be sold to certain individuals .NYPD should be pursued to the fullest extent of the law. barneys need to explain why he had to provide ID for a cash purchase.Jay-z need to stay out of this.this case needs to go to court. a young man was handcuffed and taken to a precint. The court need to detrmine why. no charges were filed.This is sick
