He was in the wrong place at the wrong time, police were at the motel to check on a possible parole violation of someone else. Stahl was arrested, along with the other people he was with.

Rarely do tears stream down my face while writing a post, but this post – Damn! What an amazing way to start off the day! What a great day for human rights (with the Texas abortion bill victory – go Wendy Davis!).

The statement was made during her deposition in regards to a lawsuit in which former black employees of her Savannah, Georgia, restaurant claimed Deen and her brother Bubba forced them to use separate bathrooms and repeatedly used the N-word
