Go Set a Watchman on a Skinny Black Guy

Police in the God-fearing state of Alabama have taken relations with the coloured folks to a new level by causing an international incident. An Indian man visiting his son and grandson had somehow drifted into the habit of walking up and down the street, in defiance of all civilised practice, and was duly reported by a neighbour as a "skinny black guy" and possible danger to the watchful citizen's wife. When the forces of law and order arrived and discovered that the Indian couldn't speak English, they threw him on the ground to make their point clearer. The Indian government has registered concern, and one officer has been charged with third-degree assault; but it is as yet unclear whether the rates of police acquittal for attacking foreign nationals is the same as that for attacking domestic racial problems.

    It's coming to something when the police in a southern US state can't set upon someone who is darker skinned than them without a fuss being created. Whatever next - riots simply because a cop gunned down a black man because he might have been a criminal?

    It's Obamacare, that's what it is. Obamacare, taxes, and not enough guns.
