"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."

Being black in public is a serious offense to many cops. Add in possession of a revolting brand of iced tea, loitering with intent to drink, refusal to respect authority and he's looking at 10 to life if he doesn't cut a deal.  :whistle:

Though in all seriousness, I am not surprised they are offering a plea deal. They really don't want this to come to open court. Not all judges are stupid.

Maybe that's true in Britain, but I'm not so certain any more about the U.S. :pondering:

This incident happened last year. Here's some more info and video.

As of March 21, 2014, charges still pending:

Had a Twitter conversation with Xstrav today. I thought I had read that charges had been dropped, but he told me today he's still dealing with it...and plans on fighting it in court

Too bad our tea drinker wasn't a concealed carry guy.  Then, the city could be less one incompetent ass.
