DeMorning links: Sulaimon Brown arrested


But was he wearing his shades? (Linda Davidson - THE WASHINGTON POST)
I suppose we had just gone too many days without mentioning his name: Sulaimon Brown was arrested early Monday morning for driving on a suspended license after a traffic stop on the 600 block of Florida Avenue NW. Here’s (part of) what he told The Washington Post’s Nikita Stewart: “After giving the officers his license and registration, an officer returned and told him to step out of the vehicle. Brown said he asked for a reason and was not given one. He then demanded a marked police vehicle and a supervisor, and rolled up all the windows. Police tapped on the window, and one officer drew her weapon, he said. Brown said he called 911. He said the dispatcher told him there was no record of the traffic stop.” Just click and keep reading more from the man Mayor Vincent C. Gray’s administration once thought worthy of $110,000 a year.
