Memphis TV station highlights injustice in drug arrest

Memphis Channel 13's news reports that a man who was pulled over in March thought he might be facing a traffic ticket for driving without headlights.

Memphis police: Thieves ran off with Nike shoes

We do not know if the sneakers were imprinted with the name of Michael Jordan, LeBron James or even comedian Kevin Hart. All endorse Nike shoes. One thing Memphis police say they know: the shoes didn't just walk off by themselves. Someone stole the footwear from a big rig's trailer parked in a Southeast Shelby County lot. According to law enforcement officials cited by News Channel 3, someone first cut a hole through the parking lot fence, then sawed off the trailer's lock, made their way inside and removed at least 12 cartons of Nike shoes valued at more than $14,000. At the time this blog post was written, no one had been charged with theft in the case.
