Profiling: Alton relays a life lesson

Alton Foley has had an interesting life and has shared various aspects of it throughout the years in his blogging. Today he responds to the Obama-Gates-Crowley episode that ended with beers shared at the White House.

Alton had a incidence with a police officer in the 1970s that he writes about today ... and his conclusion was two lessons learned:
Two lessons here; One, never try to debate with an officer. He has a gun and can use whatever means necessary to effect your arrest. Two, anyone, even a white guy from the south, can be profiled.
I shared Alton's story with my truck driver husband. Thanks, Alton.
