One piece of advice was missing


In his column last week, Glenn Mollett offered several ways to avoid being harrassed by the police. E.g., don’t speed in your car. Don’t try to spend a counterfeit bill.

He omitted one crucial piece of advice: Don’t be born black.

That’s a surefire way to decrease your chances of mistreatment in the American judicial system.

Mollett needs to read the room. We are past the point where smug “they-had-it-coming” explanations of police violence will suffice. It’s embarrassing to see this kind of tripe on my local paper’s editorial page.
