Go Shani, go!
See how America's best or at least tied for best speed skater can't even catch a break from the police? Same shit that happened to my client Michael/Isreal and Willie/Toney (and me, even in law school, BTW) happened to him. ACLU attorney Harvey Grossman said: "Generally, you've been stopped by a policeman if you're 16 years old and black in Chicago." I spent a lot of time in Chicago as a kid and in law school and I won't go that far. But I can see why he said it. In honor of Shani and Chad, I'm going for an inline skate tomorrow, 7:30 sharp.
