W/O getting into commenting about the incident itself I find it funny (in a sad way) that a "homeless" preacher has family so readily available to cash in on this -ohbfrank- Maybe there is more to the back story though...

It appears that Officer Vincent LoGiudice takes something out of his back pocket, sniffs it and then places it in Howell's car. "What is he doing? I don't know we could all formulate our own opinion," said Amy Marion, Howell's attorney. Howell's attorney Amy Marion says no one knows what LoGiudice put in the car. Or what he took out of his back pocket a short time later and put in an evidence bag.
Nice, caught planting evidence...


Howell did admit to having a small amount of marijuana in the car.
FFS...So much for Attorney Amy Marion's planted evidence rabbit trail. -rolleyes-

Someone with a small amount of marijuana can't be framed for a more severe crime?

Quantity of a substance can be the difference between a misdemeanor of possession & a felony of possession with the intent to distribute.

It seems like all the other racists here, assumed the opposite and got offended.

How much was he charged with?

There's six ounces of difference between the two.

Recognizing context makes you racist?

The article doesn't say, which is why it's bullshit to assume that his admission invalidates the claim that the cops planted evidence.

It's bullshit to assume either way without proof. Damn, this is what I get for taking you off ignore, back you go!

If we ignore the video of the cop placing things in the car, sure.

Nope. Assuming the worst is going to happen, does.

Oh so you know all this how? He still hasn't answered what he meant. At this point we have no idea what he meant by the post. I can't speak for others but I have made no assumptions about what he was trying to imply.

...I'm still waiting for "all the facts" before I make a judgment.

Ummm, because I can read. I would agree that we do not know what he meant because he hasn't clarified. But I would hope that its not the conclusion that these people below immediately jumped to:


I don't like to throw around the "racist" word, but wow.

Holy fuck dude. At least your racism is honest, I'll give you that.

It's pretty damn clear that DVD Polizei meant that if cops stopped arresting black people, all civil order would break down and silly liberals would suddenly see that racial profiling is completely reasonable. You don't have to be racist to see that reading in what he said, only familiar with his posting history in this and similar threads.

So you're assuming that that is what he meant. I did not read that in what he wrote.

DVD Polizei has recently posted some fairly racist comments in the Ferguson MO thread; if it smells like a duck... :shrug:

Do you understand the meaning of the word "context"? DVD Polizei is not some Cool New Member whose views are unknown. Everyone who follows the various police brutality threads here and in Politics knows what he thinks on these subjects, and we're able to extrapolate his meaning from there.

I personally can't keep you characters straight; I haven't the inclination to track who's who and especially how y'all think based on an aggregate of your posts. I have an actual job, I'll have you know!

Yes I do know the meaning of the word "context" thank you very much. Please show me where, in the context of that post, he came off as racist. As slop101 mentions below, I also have neither the time nor the inclination to read every single thread on here. I personally don't care to follow the various anti police threads here, and took his post at face value, and the apparently racist responses at face value as well.

Here's his first post in the Furguson thread, though I'm afraid it might be too subtle for you to gather his meaning.
