A few years ago a Congresswoman in Arizona ran into the same thing as she was pulled over in a nice neighborhood (happened to be her neighborhood) while driving an expensive car (her car). There was only one reason for the officer to stop her.
Come on. We as a nation can do better than this. Can't we? Or have we come to accept threats and violence are okay, racial profiling is okay-- so long as they happen to someone else! These incidents don't all end in someone's death but they should not happen at all because the potential for it to be worse is there in every one of them.
