Snitch Biography: Yes another one, but this one is met with a little bit of controversy.
So a brief rundown, Morry Matson called the police after African American customer Camilla Hudson tried to use a coupon that he didn’t recognize at a local CVS Pharmaceutical he managed. She said the call was made after she began filming their response when she was told it might be a counterfeit coupon. The video only catches the last part of his phone call, which has quickly gone viral.
So time to dissect who this guy is and his entire background. He was born and raised in Billings, Montana. His family is Finnish and German, and his father was raised on a homestead in Wyoming. His mother was raised on a farm in Montana and was the Dial-a-Prayer lady in Billings for many years. Matson describes himself as an Evangelical Lutheran who received a music scholarship and studied music in Vienna. He got a music degree in 1993 and worked as a substitute music teacher in Billings public schools. He enlisted in the Navy and was stationed in Chicago and Virginia, where he was a member of the Sousa’s Navy Band, his campaign site states. He received an honorable discharge and founded an opera company in Billings in 1997. After that, he moved back to Chicago and managed to theater companies. Matson is an LGBT independent conservative who voted for President Donald Trump (Because he didn't like Hillary) and recently became president of the Log Cabin Republicans of Illinois, an LGBT political group. Log Cabin Republicans is the nation’s original and largest organization representing LGBT conservatives and straight allies. He’s running for alderman in Chicago and part of his campaign platform mentions helping African Americans. He was also a delegate for President Donald Trump during his 2016 campaign.
Morry Matson is running for the 48th Ward Alderman and part of his platform is to stop denying African Americans access to the Lakefront. Yes the Lakefront, on Edgewater, in Chicago, Illinois. In 2013, Matson created a website seeking to promote Edgewater’s need for a boardwalk along the beach, connecting Edgewater with Rogers Park. This is good because it brings more business to Illinois. An alderman is an elected member of a municipal council. Chicago’s City Council is made of 560 elected aldermen who represent a district or a ward, and the mayor presides over the aldermen. The 48th ward was first created in the Edgewater area of Chicago in 1931. He ran as an independent and even wrote a letter to Attorney General Jeff Sessions to combat the racism happening in the city.

So why is he here? The video of Morry Matson has quickly gone viral after it was posted to Facebook, and some who saw it have said it was another example of someone calling the police after a black man or woman did something innocent.
In this case, Camilla Hudson tried to use a coupon that was sent to her, and Matson and another store manager didn’t recognize the coupon. She said that Matson called the police after she had asked another manager for his name and title in the store, and pulled out her phone to document what was happening. According to Hudson’s Facebook post, Matson called the police twice and they came out after he said that Hudson was harassing him. Hudson shared a video and explanation on Facebook. She said the coupon was sent to her by a product manufacturer because her product had been defective. The manager on duty at CVS had never seen the coupon before and said he thought it was fraudulent.
Hudson said she asked for his name and title so she could send a complaint about how she was being treated, and he retreated to the back of the store. She said that was when Morry Matson, who had previously been helping her, stepped in. Also a manager at CVS, according to Hudson, Matson told her that he would call the police if she didn’t leave... and guess what he did.

When police arrived, the situation was diffused in under 15 minutes. Since the video emerged it went viral and of course, he became a living walking meme. Way to put yourself in that position. Way to dig a hole for yourself.
It's unfortunate because he seemed like he had good intentions for Black Americans, now after this I won't be surprised if those intentions take a drastic turn.
