    It was a mistake, the sheriff’s office said. Dukes never sold marijuana to anyone.

    The sheriff’s office issued Dukes an apology, and sheriff’s officials went to Dukes’ church to publicly apologize for the mishap, Dukes said....

    Dukes said his “wanted” photo was left on the internet for a month and that he wants the sheriff “to get on the world wide web and publicly apologize to me to the world” for that same amount of time.

    Also, Dukes said, “I feel like my family should be compensated for what we have been through and what we have gone through.”

    it has nothing to do with an apology, or race. Guy is just looking for a payday.

    If you don't want to make it a racial issue, then don't bring up race. The fault in this lies with the CI, not the SO.
