Now it really IS beginning to feel like my birthday.
So it seems that “Django Unchained” actress Daniele Watts is being charged along with her man for allegedly committing a lewd act in public (i.e. having sex in a car). This all stems from that incident in Studio City when the Los Angeles police said officers received a report about indecent exposure ion Sept. 11. A witness reported that a man and a woman were behaving indecently inside a silver Mercedes with the door open, according to police.
You already know the rest of the story. She acted a complete fool and cried, and I mean literally cried, racism and racial profiling — which as I have said before was a bunch of bullshit.
And even though when that audio tape was publicly released showing just how much of an ass she acted, the LAPD is still trying to railroad the officer who released it — Sergeant Jim Parker. And as I have said before, I stand behind Parker completely on this issue and the department is wrong for targeting him in this situation.
I reached out to Parker to see if he’d heard the good news and this is what he had to say:
“As I stated in the past, there were numerous witnesses to the incident involving Miss Watts. All witnesses verified that there was actual sex taking place in full view of the public. This should serve as a reminder to all persons that confrontation, instead of cooperation, with law enforcement, more often than not leads to negative repurcussions. However, now 6 weeks after the incident, the LAPD command staff made a decision to file charges. Is it any wonder that I chose to release my recording as quickly as I could? The charges now pending are LAPD’s way of SAVING FACE for their inability to quickly release details of the incident as soon as Miss Watts went public with her false accusations of racism.”
I couldn’t have said it better myself. Rock on Parker!
UPDATE: Sergeant Jim Parker will be on the “Front Page with Dominique DiPrima” on KJLH 102.3FM on Wednesday, October 22 at 5:30 a.m. discussing his reaction to the charges against Daniele Watts and her man. If you’re not in Los Angeles you can listen online at www.kjlhradio.com.
