An Arrest Has Been Made

But for what crime, no one has any real idea. We don't even know the race of the "perpetrator," but he is a juvenile. Apparently it is for "harrassment" and "bias crime" which are both pretty vague. Who is the victim? And what bias? "All black people please leave the store now" is hardly any threat. Especially if the store management appologized immediately. A joke, perhaps in bad taste, but no threat or harrassment. Since they are keeping the race of the boy so very, very quite, there is a very good chance he is black. We all know that no newspaper of record ever identifies a criminal as black, but routinely do for whites.

But the local Chekist wants to make a name for himself. '"This was an extremely disturbing event on many levels," Gloucester County Prosecutor Sean Dalton said at a news conference. "Any statements like these that can cause harm or grave concern must be addressed as quickly we possibly can."'

Why? There was an immediate apology. No one was hurt. It was a prank. Is Sean Dalton going to arrest all the rappers who shout nigga? Or all the blacks who use "pinkie" or "cracker" on a daily basis? Probably not.

And, as you can expect, the money grubbing Al Sharpton wannabees are on the attack, claiming that this is a routine occurance at this Wal-mart.
"Some community members said Saturday that they've heard reports of similar incidents happening at the store in recent months that were not reported to police.

"'We are concerned about that, and we're looking into these incidents. We want to work with the community to make sure these types of incidents don't happen,' said Loretta Winters, president of the Gloucester County chapter of the NAACP."

Obviously Loretta Winters is looking to score some swag from Wal-mart, perhaps some big cash donations for the local race hustlers as well. Not to mention the lawyers who will be filing suit in 3...2....
