According to police the suspect is seen spitting in the victim’s cups on surveillance video. The victims then took pictures of the phlegm in their drinks.
The suspect is black and the two victims are white. The crime may have been racially motivated. In fact, the incident transpired only a short drive from a hotel that used to be called the Jack Tar Hotel. Jessie Jackson used to be a waiter there and Life Magazine says Jackson admitted to routinely spitting in the food of white customers out of racial hatred.
A black female Judge threw out the case, because police did not DNA test the phlegm.
