Understatement of the year

The last time police came to my house, it didn’t work out so well for me.

–Wayne Burwell, who suffered a medical emergency but was mistaken for a burglar and dragged out of his own house naked after being pepper sprayed and struck with nightsticks. His cleaning service had reported a possible break-in.

It’s dangerous to be in your own house while brown.  In Burwell’s case, a retired white police officer who lived next door tried to tell the police that Burwell lived there.  The police aren’t talking.
