That's Much Too Vulgar a Display of Power

While reading The Washington Post article on racial profiling in Georgetown and Adams Morgan, I had an epiphany. No, I wasn't surprised that the MPD was picking on blacks and Hispanics. I mean, duh. Remember, any black guy in Georgetown has been deemed "unusual" by one of the MPD's higher-ups. This is no surprise.

I was more shocked to realize that our new Police Chief may in fact be possessed by the demon Pazuzu. To wit:


I hope black people and Hispanics remember to be very careful walking down those stairs on M Street.

  1. It kills me that you insist on underlining the names of newspapers.

  2. I think this is a good thing, Rusty.
    Projectile vomit is MUCH safer than tasers.

  3. The new chief also contradicted herself in her first TV interview. She said that DC residents should NEVER feel they are safe from terrorists and should always be vigilant. Then 10 minutes later talked about how residents should feel safe from other crimes in their own homes and neighborhoods . RIIIIIIIIIIGHT? like robbery, rape, murder, gangs? those things never happen in DC...But on my way to work I must have seen 10 Al-Qaeda agents on R street. Whatever lady....

  5. Chicago style has underlining. AP Style does not. I still use some old Chicago habits (like using the Oxford comma) because that's the system I learned first.

  6. Commenter A: (desperately ignoring the fact that there are no white criminals in georgetown for police to stop.) Funny pic, Rust.

    Commenter B: (desperately ignoring the fact that there are no white criminals in adams morgan for police to stop.) Hey, are you sure you're supposed to underline a newspaper?

    Rusty: (paralyzed by white guilt) I use Chicago style formatting.

  7. I'm thinking of becoming a "white criminal" because I feel that we are currently underrepresented.

    But I don't know where to start.

  8. What really burns me up is that while MPD wastes time stopping blacks and hispanics in georgetown, all the desperate, impoverished, underpriveliged white muggers and robbers rampage around UNOBSTRUCTED.

  9. Those white muggers aren't in G-town. They work for the Jack Abramoff firms on K Street.

  10. MLA blows. Parentheticals instead of footnotes? I'd rather die.

  11. Rusty says he uses Chicago style, but according to Chicago style, newspapers referenced on the INTERNET are to be put in italics, otherwise readers (like me, everytime I visit this blog) will confuse it for a hyperlink.
