Arrest of the Bumblebee

 If you decide to wear black and yellow, better not show up at any events that could be designated as “Latin.” This past weekend’s Puerto Rican Day Parade proved that cops will look for just about any excuse to make arrests. A high school senior was singled out for wearing black and yellow sneakers, which are the colors of the Latin Kings gang. According to NY1, the aforementioned student was only one of 208 people arrested; 198 of whom were classified as gang members.

The New York Times admits that the number of arrests have increased significantly since last year’s parade, and even included a 55-year-old New Jersey postal worker this time around.

    To be on the safe side, just wear no clothes.
