Meet Merlene Maten, a 73-year-old church deaconess with no criminal history, and her New World Orleans experience after spending 2 weeks in jail for looting $63.50 in deli foods.

Jailed Deaconess, 73, Ordered Released



Family and eyewitnesses insisted Maten was an innocent woman who had gone to her car to get some sausage to eat only to be mistakenly arrested by tired, frustrated white officers who couldn't catch younger looters at a nearby store.


And my favorite part..



Even the store owner didn't want her charged.


Perhaps there is not much to discuss that hasn't already been covered over the past few weeks. I thought I would mention this story in lieu to the Presidents speech last night. Acts of racism ran rapid when America fell to her knees.
