  1. in response to’Crowd confronts racist Wash. Ave. dog walker & beats with pole’:
    holy fuck. that article says that the dog shit next to someone, when the person got upset the dog owner yelled racial slurs at them, and yet the post some how treats it as a zanny, humorous story, and then goes on to justify the police arresting one of the people who stuck up for themselves. that is some serious orwellian shit. (no pun intended).
