Judge Waives Elderly Woman's Jaywalk Fine

I've often said that more entitled communities would be up in arms if the police did to them what they routinely do to poor black folks. Now witness the brouhaha over the jaywalking ticket issues to 82 Year Old Mavvis Coyle.

Ms Coyle

As it turns out, a Motorcycle cop--office Kelly--give Mavvis a ticket for jaywalking as she shuffled across an LA street can in hand, groceries in the other.

We're right to be outraged (the ticket was $114). It's just that we should remember how often his happens to the voiceless.
