Atherton Celebrates Black History Month Atherton, posted by malcom, a resident of the Atherton: West Atherton neighborhood, on Feb 3, 2010 at 6:50 pm
What Do Jon Buckheit and Rosa Parks have in common? On the surface not much. One is a white male born during the second half of the last century to an upper middle class family, while the other was a black female born in the earlier part of the last century to a family living in near poverty.
The things that Rosa Parks and Jon Buckheit do have in common is that both stood up and stood their ground in opposition to an abuse of authority and the world is better for it.

I think the Fact that someone in the Atherton Police Department committed a Felony had more of a role in the judges' ruling than the photo you mention. Also if in Fact his attorney did do it pro bono even more reason to thank him, because he was awarded his legal fees.
