    And if by chance the police pulled that mutt over and checked him out and found the gun there would be some storefront revrund saying it was race only that made the police arrest him. And the news would only give the revruns side of the story and mutt’s family would be showing his kindergarten graduation picture say he wassa gonna be a good boy
