Log Cabin Republican Calls Police on Wrong Woman

In what appears to be another case of calling the police because someone is Black, Morry Matson, Log Cabin Republican candidate for Edgewater's Mayor, has a lot of explaining to do. His last claim to fame was promoting a multi-million dollar carnival boardwalk in front of lots of people's homes and cutting off their unobstructed views of the lake.

    Black woman says CVS manager called police because she had wrong coupon
    Camilla Hudson wanted to use a manufacturer's coupon at CVS on North Broadway on Friday night, but a manager who said he'd never seen a coupon like that called the police, she said in a Facebook post. "So, THIS just happened: I had the police called on me for attempting to use a coupon @ the CVS Pharmacy located at 6150 N.

    It’s funny that you believe there was little evidence to support a claim of disparate treatment but you readily claim the CVS person was fired because of discrimination against him. You could have just as easily concluded that the person was disciplined because he failed to offer quality customer care and instead he escalated a situation that might have been defused. In my experience if a worker interfered with the bottom line, they would probably be fired.

    You then mention a situation where a woman claimed racism without real evidence. The manager in that case handled the situation adequately and said there was no evidence of racism yet you walked away angry.

    Are there people who make irresponsible claims for whatever reason, yes. That does not erase the many situations of racism in this country. In a management position I was once accused of sexual harassment. No truth at all to this. But while I was angry and dissapiinted in the person who caused great disruption in my life, I don’t doubt that in the vast majority of these cases those who come forward are probably telling the truth.

    Ultimately, it is a matter of what society you believe we live in. You have faith that we live in a society where people pretty much are treated fairly.

    I except the fact that we are a patriarchical and racist country that has not overcome the legacy of slavery and conquest and in fact has gone on a course that ramps up racial tension, animosity and repression.

    Examine who you are and your own blinders that distort your social understanding.

    BTW, your belief that a cupón whose barcode did not pick up is humously naive. As all those who have had to battle wrongly issued traffic tickets, been inaccurately charged at a register or denied one has a flight booked when the e-ticket is in your hands can attest.

    I have had a tug of war with CVS over their sales records and coupons because of the chaos caused by their issuance of two different IDs, which at one time they insisted I need to have and then informed me that I had to combine the two and yet still continue to question me when I try to validate a coupon. The store managers have generally been polite and accommodating but after a year I am still in limbo.

    You are an amusing man and a true believer.

    As both a pedestrian and a bike rider, I really appreciate the dedicated lane, especially under the bridge. I can't control cars and most don't pay attention. I do feel safe separated from vehicle traffic. I travel under the bridge almost every day now and can say for certain, everyone uses the right path here.

    On a separate note, I noticed the new bike only lanes are up and running in the park. I do hope there is much more effort to create signage and educate the public on which lane to use for what. Currently I see the speed demons still almost colliding with pedestrians on the walking path and I see pedestrians literally just standing around on the bike only path.
