I don't need to rewatch it - I typed that in error. I blame the security guard for his over the top response.

Thanks for the catch.

The only person whining is you. And I have to laugh at your “white guilt” comment. I’m not white. You should do yourself a favor and have a universe of seats.
Yeah, I laughed at that, too, but it wasn't PCALMike who posted that - it was Folkguitarist555.

If I was somewhere that I was not allowed to take a gun and the police officer told me to leave but I said I wouldn't, he would have pulled his gun on me.

He got treated just as he would have treated anyone else.

Oh oops! Thanks for pointing that out.

That would be appropriate because you said you wouldn’t. This deputy sheriff said he couldn’t disarm and left. There was no need to follow him with the gun to his back and then try to prevent him to leave

I never wrote a comment about your white guilt. You're mixing me up with someone else. Not surprising.
Lolol...whatever makes you sleep better at night.

I don't know what all happened. Like I said, not a fan of rental security in this situation. Did the officer cause an issue?

Yet, 300 plus years of documented proven racist actions and laws against blacks......blacks are expected to give whites a 750 credit score when it comes to racial issues. It's nonsensical, after 350 years of racism, for blacks to think such acts could be.....motivated/influenced by race. Had it happened to any other race.....they would clearly behave differently.


I also love how so many white people know that the actions of another white person, who they never met, is not racism. They don't do identity politics, of course, but they can identify with the white person enough to know that there is not a racist bone in their body. They can vouch for the accused, of course, by arguing how they are not racist and therefore....that means others are not either. Maybe they are not vouching for the white guy as much as they just don't trust black people and their character.....meaning that the black person MUST have done something to deserve that treatment and hence need the WHOLE STORY.
Isn’t that something? Well said.

It doesn’t appear so. That hasn’t been offered in the defense of the security guard. Certainly someone else there would have offered that information if it were the case.

So the officer falsely plays the race card in hopes of getting sympathy. What a piece of garbage. Now he knows exactly how the public feels when cops pull the same thing on others.
I wish I was in court when the security guard gets dressed down. He deserves it.
