Mistaken identity and police treatment of black mothers

Feministe has a post about the second incident of mistreatment of a pregnant black woman in Missouri this year.

Apparently, in this most recent case, the woman stopped by Independence MO police was 1) six months pregnant, 2) driving her vehicle with her other two children in the car, 3) a school principal, and 4) a Sunday school teacher. She just "looked" like someone else.

A blog about Kansas City happenings has more; including a link to a local KC television station's website about the incident.

There's apparently video of this, but I cannot bring myself to watch it.
