    No, the officer decided he wasn't going to PROSECUTE her for a crime, not that she didn't commit one. I'm sure that if he had the videos and pictures on hand at the time he approached her, she'd have been in handcuffs. There is a difference.

    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".
    That's exactly what should have happened. The cop would have ran her license and made sure she didn't have any outstanding warrants, then let her go with a warning not to do it again. That's all it had to be. She's the one that turned into a raving racist bitch.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Not to do what again?

    Continue not committing crimes?

    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.
    Then you haven't been paying attention or reading the links.

    There was a call that people were having sex in a car on a public street. The cop showed up to investigate. He requested ID from both parties. Watts refused to provide ID and accused the cop of approaching her solely because she was black. She lied about what was going on and actively obstructed a lawful investigation of the complaint.

    I listened to the tape with the officer and Watts.

    First off, the officer is hilariously genius. And secondly, you liberals defending her are beyond pathetic.

    It had a name.. Allowing them to run it through the computer to see what's going on... No?

    Perhaps you don't fully understand the concept of "investigating". Just because no one was arrested and the police determined she didn't commit a crime for which they could lay charges, doesn't mean that they weren't investigating a complaint of illegal activity. Surely you're not suggesting that police only ask questions of people who are guilty of crimes.

    Having sex in public is a crime. The police needed her ID to file a report. The DA's office will decide how far to take it.

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

    I wonder if, now that there is photgraphic evidence that they were having sex in public, those thatinitially rushed to cry racism and claim this was excessive police response just because she was black will now have the decency to admit how foolish they were and just...

    Come on, you know better than that. They'll all double down on the stupidity.
