One week after a Montgomery County sheriff's deputy pulled him over for suspected drunken driving, Rep. Alvin Holmes, D-Montgomery, claims he is a victim of racial profiling -- an allegation the sheriff calls "ridiculous."
On his way to the House chambers Tuesday afternoon, Holmes said he planned to file a harassment complaint with the U.S. Department of Justice.

"Racial profiling? That's what Alvin Holmes always says," Sheriff D.T. Marshall said Tuesday.

"The next time Mr. Alvin Holmes is stopped by deputies and is found to be drinking -- if the session is in or not -- he will go to jail," Marshall said. "That's not a threat. It's a promise."

I hate those words Racial Profiling. In Toronto here the police have been hamstrung by accusations of Racial Profiling and as a result they are reticent to even deal with offenders of certain minority groups.

In the end it will mean adjustments which will require the police to behave in an increasingly controlled fashion when dealing with anyone.

What I want to know is it just me that thinks this guy sounds like a blathering idiot during the interview. I mean is he still drunk or something?

"Racial profiling? That's what Alvin Holmes always says," Sheriff D.T. Marshall said Tuesday.

How many other times has this happened? It makes him seem like he's always getting into trouble.
