The dark one

The news is out: [RICHMOND. Va. (AP) — A federal appeals court ruled Thursday that sheriff’s deputies in Virginia violated the constitutional rights of a Black man when they arrested him for refusing to identify himself.
The decision by the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals partially overturns a lower court ruling that upheld the legitimacy of the 2017 arrest of George Wingate by two Stafford County deputies. The deputies invoked a local statute requiring people to provide identification to police when public safety warrants it.
Wingate sued, arguing that his arrest was a textbook example of “driving while Black.”]

This goes on every single day in the US. There is no need to identify in most states. Please find out about your state; it may protect your Constitutional rights one day.
