At least the boy knew what to do in this situation by asking the officers to check a white guy's i.d...thank god we don't have tasers at my university..our officers are usually giving out parking tickets while our students get mugged

Mirvat,

The rainbow was unfinished until you added the last hue.

The dancing of the "femme exotique" in you would have inspired Ravel to write the final note to his Bolero.

Hibernate if you wish....if you can !!

I'll keep checking...

Personally I would have showed my ID..screw it, off course there is racial profiling...

But Thanks to Bush and his stupid foreign policy, there is much more fear in the world now, much more brutality, way more abuse of power, the Americans are poorer now with much bigger deficit and Iraq is completely destroyed

Giving power to anti-social people. Very disturbing.

The lawyer for the kid is not adequate, actually that peace of white gewy chunk is stupid.
The kid is stupid too.I would have show my fucking ID if I was studying in Iran - believe me. So why didn't he do the same in the USA, arrogance perhaps? Who knows ...
So what's this all about anyway? Police brutality, racial profiling, leftists propaganda? I don't know ...
I don't want to sound apologetic for unjust moves of stupid law enforcement officers, but I also don't want to succumb to the temptation to condemn issues in a black and white light based on a situation by this flick on "myTube" .
