    The "race card" isn't any more "special" than the "I'm a crying girl, don't give me a ticket" card. Some people are just obsessed with race so they focus on it.

    You are right on this one. There are tons of people who play "cards" when they get pulled over.

    The difference is.....

    The crying girl isn't trying to insult the officer out of giving them a ticket..... like seriously? Who the **** thinks that insulting an officer is going to get them ANY leniency in something that they did wrong?

    Talk about lack of common ****ing sense.....

    This is how people turn what would hvae been a verbal warning into a citation/ticket/summons (pick your noun).
    "I condemn the ideology of White Supremacy and Nazism. They are thugs, criminals, and repugnant, and are against what I believe to be "The American Way" "
    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    So now we see yet another conflated race issue. Will wonders never cease? Where do you think we should begin?

    Perry's predicament began when he admittedly made a left turn from a far-right lane -- a trick his security detail taught him, to make sure he wasn't being followed, Perry explained on Facebook.

    Two white Atlanta police officers pulled him over, but apparently did not realize they'd just stopped Tyler Perry.

    You, Mr. Perry, admitted to making an illegal turn. It doesn't matter what your security detail says. What matters is that you broke the law and that you are not above the laws that affect all of us. They apparently didn't realize they stopped you? Oh. How special you are.

    When Perry explained his illegal turn was to make sure no one was tailing him, one officer allegedly asked, "Why do you think someone would be following you?" Perry said in his post.

    Before Perry could answer, the second white officer started "banging" on his passenger's side window -- apparently taking issue with the window's tint, Perry told his fans.
    There's no wrong with the police asking why Perry thinks he was being followed; as it is, that's no reason to break the law. Regarding the window, there are regulations on exactly how dark they can be. You're no exception.

    Imo it's cute how Perry took offense to being badgered, and how he added in his quip about his mother and being treated by the wicked white cops.

    But then a second police cruiser pulled up, and a black Atlanta policeman emerged. "He took one look at me and had that 'Oh No' look on his face," Perry recounted.

    The black officer spoke "in a hushed tone" to the two white officers, Perry said. "After that, one of the officers stayed near his car while one came back, very apologetic."
    Oh, really? You disgust me, black officer, for dishonoring the police force. What, are you afraid of offending a black star, and looking like an Uncle Tom for upholding the law? I don't care about your race, you degenerate. The police shouldn't be intimidate to stop and deal with any person who breaks the law.

    Perry was released, but news reports do not indicate whether he was cited for his illegal left turn or tinted windows. Georgia law requires drivers to approach a left turn from "the extreme left-hand lane" of a multi-lane road, Georgia Public Broadcasting reports.

    Georgia law also makes it a misdemeanor to tint driver's or passenger's side windows under certain conditions, according to the state's Department of Public Safety.

    The Atlanta police department's Office of Professional Standards is looking into Tyler Perry's racial-profiling claims, E! News reports.
    I sense weakness, and the stench of hypocrisy. The fear to uphold the law for fear of slighting the ideologically ignorant.

    How dare you use common sense, folks. J/k.

    Seems to me he was just mad because the cops didn't know who he was and didn't let him go because he is a "celebrity". Spoiled brat who thinks he is more famous than he really is
    He needs to accept responsibility for his actions.

    He may have thought to use his popularity to get away with it. If so, that is pathetic, imho.

    Why should that matter in the slightest, Hatuey? The focus as you should know isn't on the OP, but the issue itself.

    Why should that matter? By your logic, why make a thread about any star or any person or any event?

    So the truth is you don't know what really happened and you are assuming you do?
    And you aren't, Top Cat? If you want, I'd appreciate a lesson from you in civil objectivity.

    That aside, we know that Perry broke the law, and that the policement backed off after the black policeman came onto the scene.

    You know, TC, perhaps you shouldn't assume that racial-profiling is to blame.

    You were asking? I saw no question mark. Since I never said anything should be ignored, then the answer is: I never said that anything should be ignored.
