So, while witnesses reported that a white man robbed a jewelry store, who did the cops arrest? A black man.
Hamilton, Ontario police arrested Michael Dixon as he was getting off a Go Transit bus. Yes, that would be the same bus he was riding on when the robbery occurred. It only took the cops three days to figure out their mistake and release the guy. The officers pleaded guilty to “misconduct” (similar to crime, except committed by police).
Not a U.S. story, but it reminds me of Brickbats, one of my favorite features in Reason Magazine.
