NY Times Columnist ‘Fuming’ after Son Allegedly Stopped by Yale Cops at Gunpoint

New York Times columnist Charles Blow was “fuming” on Twitter Sunday night after he tweeted to his 121,000 followers that his son had been stopped at gunpoint by Yale cops because he “fit the description” of a suspect they were looking for:

Blow referenced the Michael Brown and Eric Garner cases, about which he has written extensively in his Times columns. He then added #RacialBattleFatigue to the hash tag lexicon, a reference to the exhausting toll constantly being a suspect in the eyes of law enforcement can take on black men even when their situations don’t end up like Garner’s and Brown’s:
