    That's a bit of a stretch there. I said read three articles on the subject, none of which referenced photos or complainant interviews, and formed my opinion based on those. That opinion is always subject to change based on new information.

    New information you say you're not interested in looking at. We already have audio of the encounter, as well as interviews with the cop where he specifically says he talked to the person making the report, now we have pictures of them having sex in the car. There's no denying that much of what you read in those initial three articles is simply wrong. We even know now that people from SAG went down and told them to knock it off and they were told to go away. Clearly the cop was responding to a legitimate 911 call and had every right to ask for identification from Watts and her boyfriend. Watts was totally in the wrong, both for having sex in public in the first place and for refusing to comply with a wholly legal order from the police.

    She got what she deserved and there's no racism at all here, except maybe from Watts herself, who tried to play the pathetically overused race card.

    They have video now of what Weeks and her bf were doing. They were ****ing, not just making out.

    The claims Weeks made about police conduct are falling apart.
    LOL, thanks for the link it certainly puts things in perspective. Flat out lying about what she was doing, pulling the race card and the fame card, goodness know the police have better things to do then play games with her.

    Notice how quickly the BF came up with his ID, done and over with after a few words with the officer.

    Please show me where I said I wasn't willing to look at new information. I did not say that anywhere. I would NEVER say that.
    And in point of fact I'll look for new articles when I get home from work tonight.

    Well, you said:

    Thanks for the tip but three concurring articles is about all the time I have for research.
    It's nice that you've changed your mind though. Good luck.

    Okay. Yeah I can see how you got that impression. "Had" would have been a better choice there.

    Re: Daniele Watts says she was detained for ‘showing affection’

    She was engaged in an unlawful act and was lucky she didn't get charged with it. She should've just shown ID and it would've been over in minutes without all this unnecessary drama. The fact that she wasn't charged seems to show me the officer showed remarkable restraint and professionalism. Most people who pull this sort of stuff with the police get charged with all kinds of bogus charges and this cop had a perfectly legit charge just begging to be used.

    No worries, glad to see we're all on the same page here.

If you think police have nothing better to do than waste their time with some dick with an attitude, you don't know modern day policing.
    Seeing how the police determined that she committed no crime, I think innocent bystander would clearly be the best way to describe her.

    The investigation began and ended with checking her license. I honestly don't know what Canadian drivers licenses say but I can assure you that there was no information on her's that really aided those officers in their "investigation".

    Her claim was that the only reason the cop was questioning her is because she was black. She also claimed to simply be sitting there minding her own business. In a nutshell, she lied about what was happening, played the race card and then turned on the dramatics.
    And I think you're reacting the way you are because she is black too.

    I don't know what it is you think she lied about but as near as I can tell she committed no crime. Outside the race card, I'm really just not sure why she was stopped in the first place.
