Race for a Clue

Check it out:

Concerned neighbor in a nice neighborhood sees 2 men trying to force their way into then front, then the back of a house across the street from hers. She does not recognize the men.

Concerned neighbor calls 911 and reports her observations, which appears to be a potential burglary.

Police respond to concerned neighbor's 911 call and arrive at the subject house. 2 men respond to the door from inside the house (with a now open door) when police call out.

Police state they are investigating a potential burglary in progress. One of the men says he lives there. Police ask for him to step outside the home and to provide his identification to further their investigation and to confirm his claim.

Man refuses to provide his identification and refuses to step outside the home, but instead becomes belligerent and verbally combative with the officers.

Police arrest the man and take him to the police station where they are able to identify him and summarily charge him with disorderly conduct.

What would you do if you saw that scene in your neighborhood?

What would you want your neighbor's to do if they saw that scene at your house?

This is a summary of a actual incident and the above stated facts are not in dispute. And I challenge anyone to challenge the righteousness of the above outcome.

So why discuss it? Well, some race baiters found the need to replace the words "concerned citizen" with "white woman", "man" with "black man" and "police" with "white police".

Now, let's take a collective breathe and wipe the vomit from our chin. Is anyone else getting sick of the race baiters taking up space on our computer and television screens?

Even our country's president chimed in to call the action of the police "stupid" and declined an opportunity retract that statement even when confronted with the facts of the arrestee's adolescent behavior (which is a compatriot of our president). Yep, go look it up.

Indeed, we are surrounded by racists, but they are certainly NOT the people they want us to believe they are.

Re-read the factual rundown and then look no further than the people who insist that "white" and "black" are added to the story for the clear answer on who the racists are in this story.

What is the solution?

I had planned a similar post later in the week. I am just ... well ... irritated by all of this. Since when is the President's priority sticking his nose in "neighborhood" business?

It is saddening that good people doing good work (good cops responding to a good neighbors call for help) get lambasted by an irritable race baiter. I wonder what he would say if someone actually broke into his house and nobody called to report it? Who would he blame then??
