Someone Called The Cops Because A Black Guy Had His Hands In His Pocket

Just plain crazy.

Someone named B. McKean posted this online today without much information. It took place in Pontiac, Michigan. He started videotaping the encounter and the cop whips out his phone and does the same thing. The cop sounds apologetic, but says he had to check him out because they got a phone call about his "suspicious" behavior.

Damn. Walking with your hands in your pocket while black. In Michigan, in the cold.

What the hell is wrong with this country? I guess we should be grateful the cop didn't shoot him, what with him being "suspicious" and all.
