“Drain backed his officers, stating that at the time of the arrest they didn’t know Reese’s age, where he worked or where he lived.” Because if a cop doesn’t know all those things about a black person, they’re automatically suspicious.

“Drain backed his officers, stating that at the time of the arrest they didn’t know Reese’s age, where he worked or where he lived.” Seriously? since when do you have to explain yourself for walking down the street?

He said he was fine and didn’t need help. Unless he appeared incoherent or a danger to himself they should have let him go on about his business and go home.

It was about race from the initial call, to the police harassing a man walking based on the call, to the charges they filed, and the subsequent press conference to try and cover that it was all about race.

Seriously, how hard would it have been to just say, “man, it’s freezing out here, hop in and we’ll take you home.” Fucking racist cops.
