Verbal abuse....I'm sure you were a sweetheart when you were pulled over....we can all tell just because of your posts.....
My father was a LE officer. I was raised to always respect authority figures.

The citations I was given, allowed me two weeks to correct the broken taillight. I was issued two additional citations prematurely, while simultaneously being called several disrespectful and rather unsavory names...

My father worked with racist cops!

BTW

Most cops were decent and treated my father with respect. A few were complete racist idiots!

Again, are these people this stupid, or are they knowingly lying?

There are SIX TIMES as many white people in the United States.

Simple solution to the issue-don't commit crimes and don't be an azzhat. Not really all that hard. Well, for MOST people anyway.
Except, it's not that simple, since "azzhat"s in the police departments

Is that what we're getting at here? It sure seems like it.
Pretty much way it's been for a long time. People have a cow when they hear me refer to my rapist with bad words because he's black and white people shouldn't say such things about a black man no matter what he's done to me. No one gets upset over what he did to me but me. Even therapists interrupt me when I repeat some of the racist things he said towards me while he was raping me and go on a rant about my stereotyping blacks and that not all blacks will rape you (when I never even said anything of the sort, which showed me they weren't even listening to me). He'd mock my race while he raped me at times and tell me he was my master now, and stuff like that. So, it was okay for him to rape me and say those things to me, but if I repeat them then I am the racist. And then people wonder why all the years of therapy has never helped me? I have to carry it around with me with no way to deal with it by society's rules. I'm supposed to have some sort of superpower that makes it disappear from my head like it never happened. I'm silenced. He never was held accountable for anything he ever did to me or any of the other girls he raped. He's got a federal job now with even more connections than he used to have. He's really moved up in the world. My skin color wasn't dark enough for justice.

No!

Only people who get stopped, get charged! If you get charged with some offense (usually trumped up when you're profiled). Any person who gets charged has a record. Records are entered into LE databases. That's where you can get your disproportionate number of racial charges or offenses. Any city where profiling is rampant will quite naturally have disproportionate racial offense numbers.

Regardless, very sad situation. A 26 year-old father is dead.
Yes^ Was it a Michael Brown case or a Castille type of incident?? Im sure a good percentage of these are bad shooting incidents by the police but when you have people backing and lying for Violent Thugs like Brown, you have to wonder?

Years ago when I lived in an apartment complex, I was pulled over five days in a row and berated by the same cop because my sticker had expired, and while I had purchased it, I didn't take the time to remove the old one and put the new one on the windshield.



So? I was stupid and that was my fault. At some point you need to grow up and take responsibility for your actions. And inaction.

Like law enforcement?
Are they taking responsibility for their actions and inactions?
