    Detroit judge tosses 'gardening while black' case brought by three white women

    In the latest episode of calling the police on black folks for doing nothing -- we have 3 women teaming up to call the police on a black guy for having the audacity to try to build a community garden on a vacant playground.

    When the women couldn't get police to respond to "black gardening" allegations, they stepped up the allegations (AGAIN THIS IS WHY I AM AGAINST AUTOMATICALLY BELIEVING ACCUSERS) -- by accusing the man of more serious crimes, from the article:

    " Those culminated with allegations that Peeples was a pedophile, was in the park threatening Nash (one of the women) with a gun, and participated in a drive-by shooting."

    The police department eventually decided to appease the women and charged the man with 3 counts of stalking since all three women claimed he stalked them. The charges were later thrown out by an obviously racist activist judge (E. Lynise Bryant) -- who called the claims ridiculous and troubling -- before dismissing the case she said "[The three white women] should be sitting at the defendant's table for stalking and harassment charges, not Mr. Peeples," Bryant said during the hearing. "This is disgusting and a waste of the court's time and resources," she added before granting the defense's motion for a directed verdict, which ended the case before it went in front of a jury.

    Now, I will wait to see how closet racists come to this thread and try to justify this BS....

    Am I the only one who thinks its a bit contradictory to call it an empty lot and a playground for children? Which is it? Anyone would be a bit weirded out by some strange man hanging around a playground. Seems there's a lot of relevant details the reporters choose to gloss over or not mention. Pretty obvious the only thing that makes this story more newsworthy than any other neighborhood conflict (that often end up in violent confrontations unlike this one) is the racial angle and there's no evidence that the women's accusations were racially motivated.

    So he went to a playground and started planting squash or corn or something? That seems odd. I know a white guy who I'm going to send to a park to plant a few rows of corn and we'll see what happens.

    In full disclosure:

    That said, white folks are plenty racist around here. The klan was empowered by all them riots after the Michael Brown incident. All their in the closet supporters felt it necessary to voice their opinions and label themselves also. Even if the riots were absolutely the wrong way of going about it and set back race relations 20 years the reactions of the st louis wanna be klansppl proved the rioters were right.

    Yeah because those rioters really gave a shit about Michael Brown and weren't just exploiting his death to have an excuse to go feral.

    Who is to say.

    But don't forget my second point:

    The white racists around here (and possible in your post sir or madaam) proved to me the rioters were right even if their methods were wrong.

    Nope, they were hiding with their recessive pink sensitive skin tone types talking their racist talk after looking cowardly over their shoulders though.

    Really these racist ppl shouldn't post on here or talk with me. Just proves the rioters right every time one opens their mouth.

    Maybe if he'd gotten the community involved before he started planting?
    Maybe then he could have gotten enough money to actually plant a garden big enough to feed more than one person for a week.

    But yeah the women took it too far.
