Warning to African-Americans: Don't Drive Through Texas Hill Country

African-Americans who drive on Interstate 10 between San Antonio and El Paso are likely to get stopped for DWB (Driving While Black) in Kerr or Kimble County. Anderson Cooper/CNN 360 ran a report in June, 2009 that features a Boss Hawg district attorney claiming there's nothing wrong with himself and judges and their wives using money seized from motorists for trips to Hawaii and other luxuries. There's a link to the piece on my website www.richellison.com

The local DA has his own police force, with signs on their vehicles that say "198th Judicial District Police." Their sole purpose is to troll for people to stop and shake down and they target African-Americans and Hispanics.

If you can't avoid driving through Kerrville and Junction, and if you are stopped, DO NOT consent to a search of your vehicle. They will try to bully you. They will say 'if you have nothing to hide, why won't you let me search your car?' The answer is that you have the right under the United States Constitution to be free from unreasonable search and seizure.

It is not unheard of for local 'lawmen' to plant evidence.
