Pacman Being Profiled?

I figure I should at least glance over this new Don Imus garbage, since I tore into Jemele Hill yesterday. In the name of fairness and all that.

I'll start by saying that I don't hate Pacman Jones. I probably should, because he's an imbecile, but I don't because... well, he amuses me. Come on, you giggled a little when he pulled that "make it rain" stunt with the garbage bag full of dollar bills.

Don Imus made sure to point out that Pacman's black when his arrest record was brought up and concluded "Well, there you go. We know why" he's been arrested so many times.

Well, Imus needed to weasel off the racist hook, so here we go...

“What people should be outraged about is that they arrest blacks for no reason,” Imus said Tuesday. “I mean, there’s no reason to arrest this kid six times. Maybe he did something once, but everyone does something once.”

Lets see what Adam Jones' wikipedia page says on the subject.

On July 13, 2005 Jones was arrested on charges of assault and felony vandalism stemming from a nightclub altercation.

On October 2005, in a petition filed by the State of West Virginia, it was alleged that Jones had not made regular and sufficient contact with his probation officer

On August 25, 2006, Jones was arrested in Murfreesboro, Tennessee for disorderly conduct and public intoxication after claiming that a woman stole his wallet. She claimed that she did not steal anything and Jones spat on her. Police officers said they ordered Jones to leave several times, but he refused, continuing to shout profanities at the woman.

On October 26, 2006. Jones was cited for misdemeanor assault for allegedly spitting in the face of a female student from Tennessee State University during a private party at Club Mystic, a Nashville nightclub.

Jones also is set to appear in a Fayetteville, Georgia court in 2007 for his February 2006 incident on subpoenas for felony and misdemeanor obstruction of justice charges for an incident outside a home.

On June 18, 2007 Jones was sought by police for questioning after a shooting at an Atlanta strip club allegedly involved members of his entourage.

And that's without talking about the Vegas thing... read that one for yourself.

Here are the highlights.

1) Pacman grabbing a stripper by the hair and slamming her head on the stage because she was taking money that he dropped out of a garbage bag onto the stage at a strip club without his permission.

2) Jones threatening the life of the security guard who stopped him from making a bass drum out of a girl's head.

3) A member of Pacman's entourage returning to the club and shooting the security guard who's life Jones had just threatened. The guard is now paralyzed. Forever.

So lets summarize. Two shootings. Two instances of spitting on a woman. Two assault charges. Vandalism. Skipping out on his probie.

Yeah Imus, sounds to me like he's being unfairly targeted. What kind of fucking country is this when a guy can't take 27 of his closest friends, go to a gentleman's club, practice his crossover with the foreheads of strippers and then shoot the place up without getting arrested!!

There go my plans for Friday night.
