Flint, MI: Just Say No To Crack
Everybody knows that Sisterdoc spends more time in Michigan than she should. This morning, she was warned to avoid visiting the city of Flint...that is, if she is going to bring along her stylin' and profilin' brother.
Flint Police Chief Dicks (c'mon, that's his name) announced that people who wear their britches too low will be arrested: "this immoral self expression goes beyond free speech. It rises to the crime of indecent exposure, disorderly persons." While Sisterdoc thinks getting a look at someone's dingy tighty whiteys is icky, she doesn't mind a nice crisp pair of cotton Hanes boxers with the tartan pattern...er...but I digress.
Obviously, this is a law imposed to keep the brothas in Flint in check (and yes, Dicks is Black). And, I feel really really sorry for that poor White kid who the police found, searched, and then let go with a warning in front of reporters' cameras just to prove that the law isn't motivated by racial bias.
The Flint Police have kindly provided a guide to saggin' sanctions (see image). I, for one, am glad they are on their j-o-b on this one. I mean it isn't like Flint's crime rate is above the national average, or that they just laid off 46 police officers, or that Dicks didn't just get his home raided by federal investigators for "misuse of funds."
