    Reminds me of that Harvard prof who had the cops called on him for going into his own house.

    What I don't understand in all these situations is are there not people of color on the force/at the scene when this stuff is happening? It makes me think that police aren't racist as they are they are power blind or groupthink blind. Somewhat similar to how some guys act when they are with their frat and how different/nice/conscientious they act when you are with them in a different setting.

    I'm assuming you got this off Huffington Post?

    They have a recording of the 911 call on there. The caller says that he saw a a male tapping on the door, that's when he called the police. He describes the locksmith as a latino male with a hat on. He then he describes two females that he "thinks" are hispanic.

    My thoughts are this doesn't just happen to black people. Once had 14 officers (seven cars) descend on my friend's house because someone thought we were breaking in (we were locked out and trying to find an unlocked window). The neighbor, who even knew the friggin' guy, called police. The two of us are white as hell and it happened in the whitest neighborhood on the planet. This was 15 years ago, btw. This is just how cops are. The guns drawn is a little much, but it's not necessarily a racial thing, it's often a bored, overzealous cop thing.

    Well, if this happened to a white person, the cop would simply be called an a-hole. If it happens to a minority, the cop is a racist. I'd say there are more a-hole cops than racist cops, but that doesn't fit the narrative.
