Running Away Doesn’t Mean You Did Something

Black men who try to avoid an encounter with Boston police by fleeing may have a legitimate reason to do so — and should not be deemed suspicious — according to a ruling by the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court.

Okay.  I get if you come from a fractured subculture wherein male leadership is largely lacking, and you are poor and a minority, and have been taught to fear ‘the man’, you might want to run if confronted.

Even if you hadn’t done anything.

BUT, the idea that fleeing the police (IF you are a Black man) your flight cannot be viewed as suspicious(!?)

WTF?

Not to mention the whole racist component – What about a Black woman?  Or a Latino?  Or a White?  Or someone of mixed race?

I see a whole can of worms being opened here for additional court cases…

Once again, activist judges take the reins, in lieu of those who swore to protect and defend The Constitution.

What?  They DID swear?

I’m not surprised.  So have Presidents, Congressmen, Senators, FBI heads and Supreme Court Justices over the past 60 70 100 years.

And no one (of any power) has called them on it!
