If Mr. Everett was mistreated, I'm sorry. Understand, that from what I read and seen on the news, the police had a report that a black male was holding customers hostage. Mr. Everett is a black male and I'm sure the police had little or no more than "black male" as a description of the hostage taker. Mr. Everett needs to understand that his race probably played no part in the situation, and when I say race, I mean in racial terms. I would think that the color of his skin probably did. If the hostage taker had been a white male, I'm sure Mr. Everett would not be filing a complaint. Color makes a difference when given in a description, ie, his clothes or his automobile. That's just the way it is. Don't take it personal Mr. Everett. The police have a hard enough job as it is and I'm sure they were doing what they thought was right. Instead of complaing that you were treated this way, because of your race, thank them for job well done.
