Cops Harass Journalist’s Son Selling His MacBook

Daily Beast editor Goldie Taylor took to Twitter on Saturday to relate the story of her son who was held by undercover police with a Taser when he innocently tried to sell his MacBook via Craigslist. According to Taylor, her son Josh contacted her on Friday after the prospective “buyer” of the laptop approached him on the street only to have another undercover officer slip up behind him and press a weapon to his back before handcuffing him. Taylor relates that her son — a young black man — told her, “Mom, if I had moved they could’ve killed me and gotten away with it.”
