Did they pull you over?

Did they force you out of the car, handcuff you and put you in a jail cell because you asked why they pulled you over?

Did they shoot you while you were reaching for your ID?

Did they put you in a choke hold, cutting off your air supply?

Did they taser you?

Did they beat you within an inch of your life?

All they did was follow you? Perfect example of white privilege.


well we know where this thread is going to go now. i bet blm gets mentioned by page 2. oops.

I'm ethnically white, should I be worried that said alien cop was picking on me because of my skin color? Or was he just doing his job by running my plates.

Oh come on guy's! It seemed pretty obvious to me from his post that he intended to post it elsewhere. Some of the comments are pretty funny though. Unidentified flying officer...

That people are hypersensitive to race. It's only profiling if my skin is a certain color and no biggie if my skin is another color, that's the point.

Are you alien, black or? Do you have video evidence that this cop followed you? Not sure what your asking for here?

there's profiling, and there is racial profiling.

its not hard to discern the two.

I think people are a little hypersensitive to being shot, choked, tasered, beaten and wrongfully imprisoned.

I could be wrong though. Maybe it is just being followed that's got everyone in an uproar.

How often does that happen to people?

This is pretty standard stuff. I live in a mostly white "hick town." If you drive a beat up bucket, a flashy car with big wheels, or look like young "hoodlum" types, the cops here will follow you, run your license plate and invent a reason to pull you over.

In my town, wearing your hat backwards is probable cause. Wearing a flat brim cap is an open invitation to be pulled out of the car and searched. However, I learned if you drive a jacked up Chevy truck and sport a curved bill truckers cap, you have a free pass from "The Man".

In my younger days, I'd get pulled over about 5-6 times a year. Once I grew up and learned to blend in with the "good ol boys", I haven't been pulled over in the past 15 years.

Point I'm trying to make is, everyone gets profiled.

Have you considered the notion that the Police were simply running your vehicle plates through there system?

I think he was running your plates to get information about you, because he wants to ask you for a date.

I'm 100% sure that's all they were doing.

The point of the thread is to dispel the notion that maybe a cop is just doing his/her job and not actually going after people because of their race. There have been some spotty claims by ATS members about how they think they get pulled over more just because of their skin color.

How many times is acceptable to be wrongfully arrested, shot, tasered, choked, beaten and imprisoned?
