NY Times writer ‘fuming’: says son from Yale fit suspect description, was stopped by cops at gunpoint

How dare police do their job and stop someone who fits the description of a suspect?

At least that’s what New York Times columnist Charles Blow was feeling when he took to Twitter Saturday and his Times column Monday to express his anger about his son being stopped at gunpoint by Yale University police.

Of course its no surprise that Blow thinks this situation occurred because of racism.

The Twitterverse promptly called him on his ridiculousness. A crime was reported to police — in this case a burglary — and Blow’s son fit the description of the suspect.

Should police not have stopped him?

Charles Blow works for The Times. He doesn’t get paid to understand things like that.
