Cory Booker will handle that suspicious guy on a bike; He’s on police harassment too

Real-life superhero and Newark, N.J., mayor Cory Booker is the man to tweet if anything (aside from a Hot Pockets shortage) isn’t quite right in your neighborhood. A pothole? Filled. That shady-looking guy on the bike? Booker’s on it.

Um, isn’t this what police are for?

Maybe not. One constituent asserts that the Newark Police Department has a bad habit of harassing African-American men, and Booker doesn’t seem to disagree.

Uh oh. The DOJ, as in Eric “My People” Holder’s Department of Justice? Were the Newark Police aware that the feds might be paying a visit to “improve practices”? If not, they are now.

In the meantime, if some guy on a bike needs to be harassed, you know the Twitter handle.
