Man Arrested For ‘stealing’ Own Car

This is funny while still shocking:

From Examiner

BALTIMORE - Baltimore City police have a new crime on the books: Stealing your own car.

Just ask Keith Spence, a Baltimore City resident who was arrested when he was driving home from work in a car he bought with a tax refund.

“I couldn’t believe it was happening,” Spence said.

Spence, 28, said city police pulled him over in his 1993 red Cadillac Elderado coupe for a cracked rear window in February. Four officers dragged Spence and his two passengers from the car and said they were under arrest for stealing it, he said.

“I was listening to the radio from the back seat of the police car. It said a gray Cadillac sedan was stolen; mine is a red coupe. I guess the officer must have been color blind,” he said.

Still, police sold Spence’s car at auction two months before his day in court.

Guilty until proven innocent.

the case demonstrates that young black males in this city are blindly targeted by the Baltimore City police

Guilty of driving while black also.
