Damn racist cops!

Ken at Blogolution reports that "The Rev." Al Sharpton's driver ignored police attempts to stop The Rev.'s car (Al was in back), and "weaved in and out of traffic before state troopers were able to get in front of the car":

A car carrying the Rev. Al Sharpton led sheriff's deputies on a nine- mile chase at speeds up to 110 mph before state troopers stopped the vehicle and arrested the driver, authorities said.

The civil rights activist called the sheriff's report "ludicrous" and accused the Ellis County officers of "embellishing the story."

"That nine-mile chase is news to me," Sharpton told The Associated Press. "All I know is that the police pulled us over because they wanted to talk to the driver about speeding."

Because the 2005 Lincoln was rented to Maupin, of Phoenix, sheriff's deputies impounded the car. Maupin posted a $1,000 bond on charges of evading arrest with a vehicle and reckless driving, authorities said.

The car carrying Sharpton and two other passengers was clocked doing 110 mph in a 65 mph zone on the interstate south of Dallas, Sullins said.

Oh, The Rev. was in a hurry to get to the airport, by the way.

Well, at least the Right Clownish Sharpton is not trying to incite the 'oppressed' into killing Jews. Not this week anyway.
I say if he gets out of Texas without making any calls to violence, then we will have to consider ourselves lucky.
What a figurehead!
