(Earlier post moved to the top due to better pictures.) As exciting as the game was, I was enthralled by this event. Before this pic is taken, I see the black guy and his girlfriend being confronted by two Baylor cops (not Waco cops, but certified nonetheless) in the stadium. I'm not sure, but I think they may have caught him with alcohol. To complicate matters, they are in the very small Kansas crowd. This was not a good match-up: Black guy with attitude vs. young Baylor cop with his own attitude. At some point (still inside the stadium), the cop yells "Ok, you are getting a criminal trespass warning. You must leave the stadium now." I'm interested now. The black guy does what he was told. He leaves the stadium. I was surprised to see that the two Baylor cops continue to follow him outside the stadium. The black guy does something that is pretty funny. He's leaving, but he's walking incredibly slowly. He stops, pauses, and then start with baby steps again. This really, really frustrates the white, young Baylor cop. It is so obvious what is happening. The black kid feels like he's being screwed over the the White Man in a Lilly White stadium (yeah, he kinda is) and the White Cop feels like his authority is not being respected (which it kinda isn't). Finally, the black kid stops again and the cop tells him he's under arrest. Then I start taking pictures. The kid is pretty funny because he yells out "Help! I'm being arrested for looking for my car! Help." You know who I feel sorry for: The prosecutor and the defense attorney. This thing will be filed as a Class B misdemeanor as Criminal Trespass (DWI and Marijuna Possession are Class Bs!!!). The prosecutor will read a case report about how the "suspect refused to leave the premise as instructed." The defense lawyer will hear the story of "The cop told me to leave the stadium and I did! They arrested me in the parking lot while I was looking for my car!" I loves me some justice system.
