This is crap. A dumb kid does dumb stuff and gets cranky when the cops do their job. Sure, there is the usual protest from those who don't seem to believe this dumb kid should be responsible for his stupidity (albeit minor from the legal perspective), and the usual racist crap about "profiling." The REAL racism is from the kid and the parents who instilled it in the kid.

I'm tired of this racist crap. My first reaction was "There they go again." The usual veiled threat of "No justice - no peace" is racist. If the black "community" wants respect, they will have to earn it. This episode earns them only contempt.
