Best Of: Driving While Formerly Black


Best example of mountain- town cops pulling someone over just because he was wearing a ski mask. Let's end the profiling, fellas. (No word on whether Jacko's shopping list included Jesus Juice.)

Glenwood Springs, Colorado; February 24, 2004, 11:40 a.m.

A man wearing tight black clam diggers (OK, we made that part up), one glove (also a lie), and a ski mask (absolutely true) walked into Wal-Mart, browsed for a bit, and then drove away. A concerned employee called the cops, who later pulled the suspect over to discover it was just Michael Jackson. (He was staying at a Snowmass megaranch.)
