Kissing a white guy while a black woman in a car…

Means LAPD thinks you’re a john and a ho:

On 11 September actress Daniele Watts wrote on Facebook she was detained by police officers in Los Angeles. She had been kissing her boyfriend, Brian James Lucas, in a car.

They were sitting in a Mercedes parked on Ventura Boulevard. Watts, who appeared in Django Unchained, is black. Lucas, a celebrity chef who specialises in raw food, is white.

Those facts are not in dispute. Other parts of the story, however, are controversial.

“Studio City police mistook the couple for a prostitute and john,” according to Variety. “Watts refused to show her ID to the cops, and was therefore handcuffed”.

Why should she have to show her identity to the police?

And how would not having I.D. necessarily mean someone is a ‘ho?

Typical LAPD…
