    Spike Lee giving out the wrong address is “unforgivable”? Hardly. That was just a simple, non-life threatening error. Why didn’t the scared white couple just call the (incompetent) keystone cops and tell them they felt threatened? I’m sure law enforcement would have arrested every black person in the vicinity for SWB (standing while black).

    What’s unforgivable is a  “white mexican” (whatever that is), with a history of violence and instability disobeying a police order by taking the law into his own hands and shooting a young black man for WWB, i.e., walking while black.
