Media Alert, "Racial Profiling," and Murderapolis

Media Alert! Twin Cities residents should mark their calendars for this Sunday, October 10, at 7:30 p.m. One of the local PBS affiliates (Channel 17) will be showing a recent debate between Scott "Big Trunk" Johnson of the Powerline weblog and former Hennepin County Attorney Tom Johnson. Current Hennepin County Attorney Amy Klobuchar also makes a speech. Scott does a better job of defending the Minneapolis Police Department than either of the prosecutors. Scott skillfully deconstructs the weak allegations of racial profiling, while explaining the very real impact of the allegations on crime prevention and the murder rate in the City of Lakes.

Those of you who have met Scott know that he is an extremely mild-mannered and gracious person. For this debate, however, the seriousness of the subject matter turns Clark Kent into Superman. Regardless if the Twins and Yankees reach Game 5, you must watch this program!
