“Most people do not listen with the intent to understand; they listen with the intent to reply.”
― Stephen R. Covey
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).
So now we see yet another conflated race issue. Will wonders never cease? Where do you think we should begin?
Tyler Perry Pulled Over, Accuses White Cops of Racial Profiling via Facebook | ReutersPerry'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.
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.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.
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.
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.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."
I sense weakness, and the stench of hypocrisy. The fear to uphold the law for fear of slighting the ideologically ignorant.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.
He may have thought to use his popularity to get away with it. If so, that is pathetic, imho.
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.
