  •  Wow, this takes me back (7+ / 0-)

    I was working around Alameda and Olympic when the verdict came down.  They let us leave work early.

    I remember thinking in the days that followed what a monster Gates was and why did he still have a job?  

    When I went back to work a few days later I was listening to an ex-cop security guard who was bragging about some of the shit he did while on duty in the earlier Watts riots, like arresting young men who he either put in the trunk of the car or handcuffed to the outside doors and made them run alongside!  My blood still boils thinking of that now.  He thought it was funny.

    This is not my beautiful sig line.
