If black cops were doing this to white people there'd be no black cops in existence. They'd manage to blow every black cop straight to Hell in a nonosecond. LAPD would be emailing Lean Cuisine instructions and probably including donations for a house(s). House Baking of Negroes. Whatever, there'd be no black cops if the tables were turned.

Prison is nothing but enslavement. The way to avoid it is to refrain from doing things to get your ass locked up. The entire United States of America is our imprisonment when it gets right down to the situation. Can't do a damn thing without their approval. It's a damn shame when they can tell you whether or not YOU can wear DREADLOCKS, when all they have are spider webs that can become lice infected in a heartbeat. The hair of the DOG, that most times looks better on the DOG, much better.
