Charges dropped against Black man who was walking on icy Texas street

A misdemeanor charge has been dropped against 18-year-old Rodney Reese, who had been arrested by authorities last week for walking home on a street during a snowstorm in Texas. He was charged with being a pedestrian in the roadway. Body camera footage shows the police following Reese and repeatedly asking him where he is going and if he was OK to which he replies he is fine and is on his way home.

The "refusal to comply" BS is dangerous and those who do so are endangering themselves. If he had a better attitude, they'd probably have given him a ride home.

“Reese said, however, that he believes the call that brought officers to the scene and his subsequent arrest were based on the color of his skin.” .......... Yeah, because nobody would make the call if a white boy wearing nothing but a t-shirt and jeans was staggering up the street into a snow storm. Nothing unusual about that! Hell, I would have given you a ride to get you home out of the snow. The BLM is strong in this one. You damn near died rather than take a ride makes most people think somethings wrong with you and you need to be taken in.

I've walked in the street several times in the last couple weeks due to ice and snow. This is either some South thing, or some racist thing

I feel awful that this happened. However, imagine reading the articles about police letting somebody wander around in the snow. The individual did admit that he ignored requests to stop and talk, and the police were only trying to perform a wellness check, the man wasn't wearing proper clothes in the middle of a snowstorm. Everybody take a deep breath and calm down.
