Yes people often are offended to know that JW is smarter than them, mostly white people who have moments where lucid thought gives way to their inner cowardice and racist dogma.

How he was elected. Just like Bush was the 2nd time, he was voted in. Duh!

When you willingly fail to comply with reasonable commands from the cops, you find yourself arrested and/or shot. Fundamental rules of law and order are not that difficult to understand, even for an aging civil rights lawyer.

It seems reasonable to me that if I see the police pull over a couple of guys I have no right as a citizen to pull over too and all of a sudden want to know what's going on and watch and get involved. State Representative John Walker is probably a fine man and very intelligent, but it is not his place to pull over too and want to be involved. It makes sense that he was booked.

Who are you to state what s "reasonable" for someone else? Mr. Walker faught for minority rights, wouldn't it be hypocritical to not expect those rights for himself? Does he not have the right to speak freely? Does he not have the right to record police officers performing their duties on public streets? Someone please tell me again, what law did Mr. Walker Break?

JRoland, you actually have the right to pull over film! According to the story the police questioned Mr. Walker.

This is a free country. And the Supreme court said you can film police. Unless he was interfering with what they were doing, it is is right.
