    I'm glad you posted that. It needed posting.

    I'll offer a one dollar reward to the first person with sufficient brass-necked gall to say a white detainee would be treated that way too.

    The watch of your vision has become reasonable today.

    It’s normal. You must provoke. You must insult the belief of all monotheists. You must make fun of the belief of all monotheists.

    The suspect wasn't mistreated, it is just something that doesn't happen every day.

    You don't think that perhaps it was a thing that used to happen far too often when Jim Crow ruled, and that the only gentleman in the photo is blatantly still non-white?

    Your entire country suffered harm, it's shameful that you can't see it.
