This morning, I watched several cars get towed from Sea St. The owners of the cars were outside, chasing after the tow trucks and speaking to the officers. Their cars were still towed away (the individuals were Caucasian and Hispanic). About 5 minutes later, I witnessed two cars on tow trucks on Hallock Ave. The owners, who were African American, came out of their houses and were screaming and yelling. The next thing I know, the two cars were taken off the tow trucks and the owners were allowed to move them. When the officers went by in their car, I saw that they were also African American...reverse discrimination?? Either everyone catches a break or no one does.
