19. Sounds like a case of "Sargeant Jim Crow-ley Syndrome"

Remember Skip Gates, that black college professor in Boston (and a friend of Obama's) who got busted after breaking into his own home -- which is NOT illegal? Gates showed the cops ID and proof of residence, and got angry when they still didn't leave. He was busted for disorderly conduct -- but only AFTER the cops (one of whom was named James Crowe) talked him into leaving the house!

This sounds terribly familiar. Sung Ho Hwang showed that he owned the gun legally, probably got the pissed that the cops kept hassling him. And if he looked like a minority, I'm sure THAT didn't help. So they bust him for "interference," if only for the PR value. Yep, I see a nice yummy civil suit coming...
