    Wow, he showed his real id and they still put him through a humiliating experience. Sounds like a computer error caused the problem. I am sure his lawyer will take care of the rest.

    A spokesman at the county jail said that procedurally the Sheriff's office did not do anything wrong. They said Parrish was flagged because a "U" appeared next to his name on the jail's computer system, signaling his immigration status was unknown.
    This is KEY and debunks the racial stigma latino organizations whine about. Parrish is an English name, the computer did not know what his race was, his immigration status was UNKNOWN.

    Did police did the right thing. If they had ignored the U and let him go because he was not latino, that would've been wrong. They treated him the same as they would anyone with an unknown immigration status. They held him until his status could be confirmed and he was released. I would rather be safe than sorry, any American would be. Bravo!
