Joe Doakes from Como Park emails:
Stopped at the liquor store on the way home. As I was walking to the store, a car pulled into the handicap spot.
Beater car, young black male driver, young black woman passenger. Came in behind me wearing a bandana. No signs of handicap. No sticker on the car. No handicap license plate.
I had to actually grit my teeth not to say something. I know, could have been a white man, Asian man, any young man ignoring the rules and parking in the wrong spot. But it exacerbated The Stereotype of a young black man who thinks he’s above the rules because of his race. That, or is too stupid to follow the rules.
Either way, he’s a threat to orderly Society. People who don’t follow the rules, starting with little ones and working on up, undermine the foundation of civilization.
So I shot him.
Betcha Sally Jo Sorenson has a field day with this one. (Is Sally Jo still a thing? I have no idea).
