1. Oh man... walking while black. The keystone cops strike again.

Marquis said another black man was stopped for questioning prior to Smith's arrest because he "had all the characteristics of Mr. Smith and was carrying a bag."

Colin Bowden, 25, a student at Madison Area Technical College's Downtown campus, said he was the man apprehended. He said he was walking through the Capitol on his way to class when he was handcuffed and taken for questioning. Bowden, who is black, said he didn't think he fit the description.

"I don't buy their explanation," Bowden said. "From the picture I have (of Smith), there are distinct differences."
