I have asked the Madison Police Department if the "Bike Path Flasher" incident could have involved a white male. While I wait for the response, I am hearing from well-placed sources good evidence that such is the case.
Update:The Capital Times has the official story: "The suspect was described as a white male in his 30s or 40s with a large belly."
An MPD spokesperson emphasized that Madison Police's main interest "is in the illegal conduct" and that the man's race was secondary. The spokesman said, of his department, "We rely on maintaining lines of communication with the white community."
The sheriff has made the common-sense case that white males should be subject to particularly harsh law enforcement, given their history of violent imperial conquest and their tendency to impose their fashion sensibilities on others. However, local progressive activists insist the man should not be singled out because of the color of his skin or his seemingly perverse white culture.
