Tall dark and dead

Something caught my eye in the story about the Robert Dziekanski video that ran on Thursday in the Star:

"... a tall and swarthy Dziekanski..." Swarthy. New crime of the 21st century bullshit post-9/11 law enforcement world: "Acting Up While Swarthy". Wow, I better watch it, I'm a little swarthy myself by mid-summer.

The new millenium's version of "Don't hate me because I'm beautiful" -- "Don't tase me because I'm swarthy... bro".
