Statue of Liberty Got Lynched

This sickening video--I have no words. I'm just warning you: it's heartbreaking. Listen to this father begging officers to let him go, since he's innocent, so he can pick up his kids and go to work.

Here's more information on the case, reported in The Atlantic:

"City Pages explains what happened after the arrest. 'The man was charged with trespassing, disorderly conduct, and obstructing the legal process,' they write, 'but those charges were later dropped.'"

Because he did nothing wrong. Other than waiting to pick up his kids while black.

Feels like the Statue of Liberty got lynched and she's swaying there in the harbor like some kind of strange fruit. And too many people are complaining 'cause their tour got canceled.
