Activist Maxine Johnson was minding her business when some wingnut comes over to get in her mix and she gets understandably upset. Johnson then got hemmed up by the boys in blue and they threw the book at her while. Her antagonist, James Winfrey (who kinda looks asif he could be the town wino) was only held breifly, so says the St.Louis Dispatch. That'll teach him to not impede someone else's rights.

Say what you want, but I'm always right about this kind of thing: blacks and whites are treated differently for the same type of behavior. Newsflash, right?

Sure--it's just one incident, but is it emblematic? What do you make of it?

Truth to tell, Johnson is lucky they didn't put the Shoe on her.
