If things went down as rapper MC Hammer says they did, then we have a pretty clear-cut case of racial profiling by a California police officer. And boy did he pick the wrong guy to profile.
It started last week when Hammer, whose real name is Stanley Burrell, was arrested in Dublin, Calif., on charges of obstructing an officer in the performance of their duties and resisting and officer. It seemed a little out of character for the former rapper who has since become an ordained minister, but after Hammer's side came out, it makes a whole lot more sense.
He took to Twitter this weekend, and unleashed on the arresting officer to his 3.1 million followers. By his account, things were not legit at all.
