Police Accused of Profiling in Fein Incident
As one inclined against making such assertions, let me be one to say that the Tony Fein incident--you know, the one involving the former Ole Miss linebacker and current Baltimore Raven getting arrested because his cell phone was mistaken for a handgun--was the result of racial profiling.  The Baltimore police saw a large, tattooed black man wearing a hoodie in a nicer part of town and immediately thought "looks like this fella's plannin' to rob a tourist."  Yes, Tony reacted negatively to the police confrontation which is what ultimately led to his arrest, but the point is that there shouldn't have even been a police confrontation in the first place.  Tony Fein was harrassed because someone let their prejudices bring them to conclude that he was up to no good.  I mean, come the fuck on, how else do you confuse a cell phone for a gun?  Furthermore, what the Baltimore police have yet to realize is that Tony Fein needs no handguns; his arms are fucking cannons.  Also, he fought in Iraq.  If Tony Fein wants to hurt you, he can and will without the requirement of any sort of tool.
