Being Black While Sitting In Your Own House Can't believe this hasn't been posted yet. He tries to get into his own house. His neighbor calls the cops. Cops show up, demand identification. He provides it. He's "loud". Cops entice him out onto his porch, where he's arrested for disorderly conduct (which can only happen in a public place according to MA law). There's also the question as to whether he asked the cop for his badge number, and the cop refused (his testimony, not the cops). Discuss.
