Charges Dropped Against St. Paul Man Who Was Charged With Sitting While Black -
Here’s the thing, right? If that was a white man (or woman) sitting there, someone would have approached them and said, “Excuse me, sir, you can’t sit there. That’s for employees only.” And then they would have directed them to a place where they were allowed to sit. But because he was black, the security guard simply assumed he was too dangerous to have a simple conversation with. So he called the cops, and it all went downhill from there. Is this that “Minnesota nice” people keep telling me about?
What the hell is wrong with people?
Christopher Lollie, 28, said he was waiting to pick up his two year-old and four year-old children from New Horizon Academy’s daycare around 9:43 a.m. on Jan. 31, when a security guard from the First National Bank building asked him to leave the area where he was sitting. The guard then called the St. Paul Police Department when Lollie refused to do so, he said.
The video is so very disturbing in that the police are the ones who drove the escalation. Somehow they are trained that is the only method to resolve a situation? For fucks sake…. fire the fuck all of them.
