Get the facts.

They never do...

(Councilman arrested, charged with evading arrest, Dale Lezon {with help from Bradley Olson & KHOU} for ChronBlog)
Councilwoman Jolanda Jones, a defense attorney, said she planned to withhold judgment about the matter and urged others to do the same.

Community activist Deric Muhammad announced this morning that he is holding a press conference at 2 p.m. today about "the unjust arrest of Jarvis Johnson."
Obviously "withhold judgement" doesn't apply to those who are seeking to increase their political and public profile by making hysterical, anti-police proclemations that cannot possibly be based on any factual evidence. (When you consider we don't HAVE any evidence of the incident yet.)


There are legitimate activists out there doing good work for the Black community in America, then there are those who constantly strive to hang the racist tag on the night sky. If only the media (and society) would pay greater attention to the former.

I would think the unnamed woman in the SUV would provide the answer, hopefully we'll find out who she was fairly soon. Until then I suggest laughing at the side show.
